what does it mean to be white?

In my diversity class this evening, we will be discussing the identity of whiteness. I find that typically, white people have a really hard time defining their own culture . . . that we often see ourselves as either lacking in ethnic or cultural identity, or ascribing our personal culture as the default or “standard”.  So, tonight I will be asking students to come up with the cultural values and traditions that are practiced by white Americans. 

What would your answer be?
