You are?  Wouldn't have guessed.

Storebought is too, IIRC.  I think that may be it.  This is a really white message board, even by Internet standards.

Yes it is.  Perhaps Dave could change it to black with white text?  That might be a little too extreme though.  It'd make all us white folks on the forum irrationally nervous.

Black background and white text would be easier on the eye so go for it.

I thought Sam Spade and Mike Assad said that they were too, maybe I'm wrong though.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I'm relatively sure that Sam's white, and Assad is Middle Eastern.

I doubt anyone on here is actually black (including you Mr. Woz).

P.S. Yay for Straha posting again!

Aaron is pissed:

She was like "How did you get my number?  I don't handle this issue.  You have to call the South Bryant Campus for that.  I'll transfer you, but I don't handle it."  She said it in a slightly condescending tone.  I didn't tell her that Grumps gave me the number.  I just told her I looked it up.

Middle Easterners are considered White.

I don't think that's true for most of the country. Heck, I'm sure there are people out there who still consider Italians non-white.

Aren't people from the Subcontinent white, too?  Doesn't that make you white?

There's an "Asian" category, though by ancient heritage "white" (or, rather, Caucasian) would be the most accurate description for South Asians of the three broad categories.

No. Since Bangladesh is on the eastern end of the subcontinent, I'm as Dravidian as Aryan, whereas many Pakistanis look like Arabs. I'm classified as Asian, along with Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, and Vietnamese, which is somewhat odd.

Most Pakistanis look like North Indians, though there are a few Pushtuns that look Afghan/Iranian (well since they are).
