We study black and latino culture, which I adore, but is there a white culture?

Mainstream American culture aside, folks.

I feel, as a European mutt, that I have nothing to fall back on when it comes to culture. I latch onto anything I can get a hold of, trying desperately to form some semblance of a background for myself by picking & choosing from ancient & modern non-western cultures... And I do it unconscuiosly, too. Jews can be white, yet can fall back on Jewish culture.

I swear, I feel like there's some emptiness here a culture should belong. Damn bell.
