When I say white I mean anglo not jungle white.

A lot of Australians/Kiwis think of it this way and your posts actually make a lot more sense in this light. In North America we have lived beside English, Italians, Ukrainians, etc. for generations, we don't really think of them as otherly.



We dont either, no one really gets excited about race here, its you north americans who are obsessed with it. We dont talk about the "black/white/brown vote" for example

I wasn't saying you were obsessed, Im saying here we have no concept of "Jungle whites" or anything like that.

Growing up it seemed like the biggest divide among us was Catholics and non-Catholics. It was never that serious though.
