This guy is truly an idiot? What race is an Irish and Native American man that lives in America, or a African American and Chinese person who lives in America? They are of mixed race fool. Nevertheless still American. Racial categories represent a social-political construct of the race or races that one identifies with. So if culturally you are more familiar with American culture, your going to consider yourself American and so on. Race and ethnicity may not be exactly the same but they are intertwined. They do represent each other. If you are truly an anthropology graduate you should know that. Culture-- Culture (Latin: cultura, lit. "cultivation"[1]) is a modern concept based on a term first used in classical antiquity by the Roman orator Cicero: "cultura animi". The term "culture" appeared first in Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries, to connote a process of cultivation or improvement, as in agriculture or horticulture. In the 19th century, the term developed to refer first to the betterment or refinement of the individual, especially through education, and then to the fulfillment of national aspirations or ideals. In the mid-19th century, some scientists used the term "culture" to refer to a universal human capacity. For the German nonpositivist sociologist Georg Simmel, culture referred to "the cultivation of individuals through the agency of external forms which have been objectified in the course of history".[2]

In the 20th century, "culture" emerged as a central concept in anthropology, encompassing the range of human phenomena that cannot be attributed to genetic inheritance. Specifically, the term "culture" in American anthropology had two meanings:

the evolved human capacity to classify and represent experiences with symbols, and to act imaginatively and creatively; and
the distinct ways that people living differently classified and represented their experiences, and acted creatively.[3]

So tell me how the hell do you get American not being a race of people but a culture?

You just said it right there you idiot.. Race is your biological make up. My mom was born in Haiti and my father and I were born here. That makes me Haitian American you idiot. That's my biological make up fool. My race... Dumb ass idiot you don't know nothing.... Culture is the way you live, your morals, rituals, habits, religion. America has culture. Mainly adopted culture from other places you fool as it is a new nation unless you talk about the Native American which are an ethnic group/ race of people now within south and North America who have their own culture. You don't even know the meaning of culture and its not complicated. It's fairly simple. It's just complicated to an idiot like you. I'm not confusing anything. Your the only one confused and misplaced here buddy. Get a clue.. Many Ethiopians have different background. Some Arab, some African, some a mix of both. They are still Ethiopian. Same with an American you idiot. African American, Asian American, Arab American, Irish American, still American you idiot. And Yank refers to anyone who is an American. And no we don't adopt to the mainstream culture stupid. I eat the food my mom knows to cook from Haiti not McDonalds. I cook like a Haitian, have morals of a Haitian, speak Creole. So what are you talkin about? Ou fou? Ki sa'w gen jen petite? Shut up boy.. You talk a lot of shyt about people you know nothing about.
Still wrong, anthropologically-illiterate clown.

Your ETHNICITY is Haitian-American. Ethnicity and race are not the same thing. The way you live is culture. Culture comes from your ethnic group. It is taught transgenerationally.

Get it? Read it a few times, maybe you'll figure it out.

Don't you wish now you hadn't dropped out of 8th grade?

Espèce d'idiot... If you're practicing Haitian culture, then you're not necessarily of the “black Yank” or “white Yank” category... but likely your personal culture is a mixture of those 2 with Haitian.

In any case, so what? The point still is, fool, that ethnicity is CULTURE not race.

It's CULTURE! That is not RACE, you moron. Culture is in your brain, in your mentality, in your learning. RACE is biological. Culture is not biological.

Ok and that's what I been saying you dumb idiot. Your just proving my point. Your the one that's saying that the American people are not a race of people. They are a race of people you fool. A race of people that have multi cultural and ethnic backgrounds... Dumb ass. Seems like you have dropped out of the 5th grade and never learned how to read. They are all connected. Your race is who you are biologically and geographically. It also dictates ethnicity because of that. Depending on your location, your most likely sharing similar ethnic simularities and culture with the people. However America is different. America is a land of immigrants excluding the native Americans. Since almost everyone has come somewhere else and have brought their foreign culture here and have decided to either stick to it or convert to things that Americans have been creating as their own culture. Whether that persons off spring adapts to American culture or keep their parents foreign culture guess what, they are still an American. And that is now part of their race. So the point is Yankee, or Yank is a racial slur. You are referring to the person, where they are from and the race of American people are the targets fool. If culture is in your brain and race is who you are, how can you call a culture a yank? Does make much sense does it idiot?

Ethnicity is based on culture. It is a cultural creation. Nobody is born with any genetic predisposition toward a particular ethnic culture... it is all learned.

Ethnicity = culture.

I teach because I know the real facts, the science, behind these matters, while you babble nonsense.

Latino is not an ethnic group, fool. Ethnic groups are such as: Mexican, Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban, Venezuelan, Chilean, Uruguayan. Each of these ethnic groups has its own culture. Due to a common history of occupation by the Spanish Empire, these various ethnic groups have elements of Spanish, Catalan, Galician, etc., culture but nonetheless, their ethnicities are specified as I listed.

You know nothing of culture, history, society... and you presume to argue with me? How comical. Put on a round red nose for us, ok?

Because what makes them “American”(Yank) is all cultural, precisely as your quotes described culture. Ethnicity is culture.“Yank” is ethnicity, not race.

2 people of exactly the same genetic ancestry could be of different ethnicities. One could be German, the other Yank. Or one Yoruba, the other Yank. Get it? RACE is not what makes them Yanks. CULTURE (ethnicity) makes them Yanks. Yank is ethnicity.

Ethnicity is a cultural creation. It is not in the genes. Now read what you posted again. NOT GENETIC!

There is no “Yank” gene.

.

Peruvian, el salvadorian, Venezuelan, Chilean are all of Latino ethnicity. And Latino is the ethnic group. Go google it idiot. Cuban, Dominican, Jamaican, Haitian are part of a carribean ethnic group you fool. Ethnicity is not defined by who ruled over you or simply by which language you speak idiot. It is defined by way more than that stupid. People from Chile and Dominican Republic do not have the same culture, do not eat the same food or anything fool. they sont li e the same. so the culture is definitely different. if ethnicity and culture are the same then explain why a Doninican and a Haitian have more in common than a Dominican and Chilean or a Peruvian or Colombian. Your not educated.. Your just playing educated boy.

No but common culture is formed by a common race of congregating people you idiot. People of the same race live together, breed together, make rules together, and learn how to survive together. It's because of these racial similarities that people share ethnic similarities. Barros the idiot lets just get this straight, there is no such thing as a cultural slur. There is however a racial and or ethnic slur. It's that way because when you say those condescending remarks, they refer to someone's race or ethnicity fool, not their culture.
