Is Being White An Identity Vacuum for Millennials?

It's a legitimate question if you are NOT an SJW but then so is, "do Whites even have a right to exist?"

Assuming that you have taken the rather extremist position that Whites do have that right (and I don't blame you in the least if you don't. It's a terrifying thing to say in public where people can hear you and everything).  Let us examine White as an identity vacuum.

White as dull, staid, conformed and above all uniform came into being in that most putrid of times in our nation's history the late 1960s.  And yes there is a grain of truth to it.  There is a grain of truth to any stereotype or they wouldn't be stereotypes in the first place.

The Greatest Generation was kind of big on uniformity.  Uniformity carries with it security and there was never a generation as insecure as the Greats.  Born in the twenties during those fat times but then their adolescences were spent in the Great Depression where they didn't know if they were going to eat at night.  Borderline childhood malnutrition and for that matter, actual childhood malnutrition, tends to leave it's mark.

Then they spent their early adulthood in World War II where they didn't know if they were coming home at all.

Consequently, when the 1950s came along they wanted security.  They had all been in the military, so the Gray Flannel Suit became the new designated uniform of the day.  The world got pretty scary with the Bomb hanging over everyone's head so that created a drive for even more security.  Understandably so.

Also the Greatest Generation was White.

As was the Worstest Generation, the fucking Boomers.  For all of their bitching about the easy life their folks had broken their backs to provide them with, their problems remained White problems.

Although you did see during this time the first desire to change this sad state of affairs.

This is not a gag.
This happened
Just accept it

Lois Lane wasn't the only one.  I think Ginsberg had some whinging poem about how bad it sucked to be White too but damned if I'm digging through that pedophile's mountain of crap to find out if my memory is wrong  or not.

During the 1970s White culture started to actually examine other cultures, which in truth it had never bothered with much before.  Boomers became very much hypnotized by Eastern cultures.  Chinese philosophy and Hindu religions were suddenly everywhere.  TV shows, music and naturally the drug scene.

This was all pretty new stuff for White America.

Lets take Japan as an example.  In the seventies there was a poll conducted where Americans tried to come up with three famous Japanese people.  The results are as follows:

1.  Bruce Lee

Not actually Japanese.  An ethnic Chinese born in San Francisco so it would have been legal for him to run for president, which would have been awesome.

2. Godzilla

Born in the Bikini Atoll which makes him a citizen at birth of the United States and thus also legal to run for president, which would have been sooper awesome

3.  Hirohito

Not actually an American, so he could never become president.  Although he couldn't vote in Japan either because he was technically not a citizen.  Japanese law is complicated on this point but the royals have no official family registry, that is a very big deal in Nippon. In short Hirohito wasn't precisely Japanese either

So on this list of the three best known Japanese people in the US, 1970s America came up with two Americans and no Japanese at all.

Also, what the hell kind of Japanese name is Sulu?

The bottom line was that for the average American (prior to 1980), Japanese culture may as well have been Martian culture.

Today we have the Weeaboo.




Actually Weeaboos are worse than that. A Weeaboo is a fantasy Japanese identity.  The culture they "appropriate" is from Anime which is not quite the same thing as real world Japan.

That artwork is from a business sim called Huniecam which is about Millennial Cam whores.

Another camwhore is Zoey

"Zoey is an insufferable millennial who tries a little too hard to be unique. 
She sexually identifies as a cybernetic android."



This game is made by Millennials and I cannot help but find the viewpoint interesting.

The need to adopt an Identity is a ferocious one.

If Uniformity was the standard of their grandfathers, individual identity is the all consuming drive of the Millennials.  The Baby Boomers only liked to pretend they were non-conformists but the truth is they pretty much dressed and thought alike.

Not so the Millennials.  They have to craft unique Identities for themselves.  They are all looking for subtribes they can be adopted by.

 Part of it was parenting in the world of 21st Century technology.  I had recent conversation with a friend of mine with a Millennial daughter.

Cataline: At what age did you give her, her phone? It was a security thing right?

Friend: About twelve and yeah it was a safety thing.

Cataline: Do you think it might have affected how you raised her?

Friend (*Thoughtful silence*):

Another part of it is life in the age of the internet.  They are the first generation to be raised in it's all consuming shadow.  They are the first generation to have spent that portion of their lives when you first form your self-image on the vast expanse of white called the World Wide Web.

Now think about this part.  A lot that self-image that Millenials were forced to create was done with a keyboard and still photos.  And not live human interaction.

It's easy to be made to feel like an invisible man under those circumstances.

Anything that makes you stand out is to be grasped at with desperately clutching fingers.  Disfiguring ear expanders, ridiculous purple hair, circus freak face tattoos. Try to adopt another culture and when that culture kicks you for "cultural appropriation" turn yourself into a robot.

The one identity that Millennials don't adopt...indeed can't adopt...is White.  Because they have been raised to believe that it is no kind of Identity at all.

And  every member of Generation Snowflake has to have one.

editorial point of order: that should be ((( Ginsberg ))).

historical point of order: drugs have a long history in the US, things like opium and cocaine used to be available over the counter.
