-breaks down down laughing until i cry-  
shadowhwk, who is what I consider to be really truly American, ethnically speaking, is participating in this ongoing discussion regarding racism. Right now the discussion is focused on racism in the publishing industry. One of her debate partners feels strongly that anyone who has any black genetic material in their makeup is by default black, and that claiming to be anything other--like, multiracial--is selling out and so on and so forth in that manner. Now, what I can remember of Sarah's ethnic background off the top of my head includes Shoshone Indian, Irish, African, and possibly German, but maybe that's somebody else. Anyway, under this woman's argument, she's rejecting her black heritage and is therefore an Oreo: black on the outside, white on the inside.

I thought about this carefully, and decided no, that's all wrong. She's not nearly black enough on the outside to be an Oreo, and clearly she's too socially sensitive to be purely white on the inside.

I have concluded that obviously, she is a Nutterbutter.

Oh, for ze record, German = Pennsylvania Dutch, but close enough. :)

The Pennsylvania Dutch are German. They're only called Dutch because the other settlers around them couldn't pronounce Deutsch.:-)

Yes, I know this. However, there are members of said community who get very tetchy if one calls them German. Hence the comment. :)
