I have never met a white person... ever
Lots of pink people, but white... no!

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

RE: what race are you?
Neither have I, but I've met a shitload of people who think it's a thing. It used to be something like an aspirational goal for me, lol.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!

Did you know that animals are more closely related to fungi than plants?

Got something against fat molds?  That's moldist, dude!

Sorry, slime molds.

 In winter in some places there seem to be an awful lot of beige people. Here in Oz, white skin is a sign one is very ill or dead. 

More common is an unattractive shade of grey.

I guess the term 'white person' may have been a matter of comparison, especially when devising a them vs us dichotomy.

I can't help but wonder how long we have been using skin colour as a way of discriminating against people not like us. I suspect it may be a relatively recent thing. (last few centuries)  I think in the past a person could be seen as inferior ('barbarian') with their skin colour being used only to describe their appearance.

I wonder if the growth in the enslavement of African people by Europeans had anything to do with it? That perhaps the perception changed from inferior-person-who-happens-to-be black to a more generic concept of  all-black-people-are -inferior (?)

Now that I think about it there aren't really any white people. Just beige/peach/pinkish.

 Old Yeller and The Yearling made me cry when I saw them as a child. Same with Lassie films.  I know better than to watch such movies now.
