    It totally depends on what kind of person you are talking about.

    Being accused of acting white certainly has is levels.

    I've been accused of it and I admit to no such thing, I'm so proud of my culture and so comfortable with who I am. The reason I was accused of it is because I speak out (respectfully, never ever disrespectfully) about certain things that aren't quite right in our culture, or perhaps I am less traditional and people take issue with that and call me "white washed" but I think thats just them being narrow minded.

    I know there are people that are completely disrespectful about their culture, ashamed of their parents dress sense, ashamed of their language (so much so they refuse to speak punjabi etc even at home to their parents), they are racist to their race and I find those kind of people intolerable.

    On the flip side, there are also people that may just be "a little too proud" that disrespect other cultures and races.

    So basically, what I'm saying is, everyone is annoying :-D
    You know I actually agree with you. I wasn't talk about about people who had no idea of their culture. I was talking about people who knew their culture and mocked it.


    You are right.(:

    I prefer to be part of British society rather than my Asian roots. I've lived my whole life here so I have a bigger connection to the British way of life and therefore act more 'white' than Asian. Obviously my ethnicity will always be Asian and I'm proud of that too but I do think that it's better to assimilate into British culture rather than keep your own culture in this country. It's a lot easier to just act British.

    Personally I don't like Asian music or films or clothes anyway. I prefer American films and music and normal clothes.

    In the part of the world that encourages freedom of individualism; everyone is allowed to be their own person. Especially when they are not educated by their parents and instead take from the rich or unfortunately poor surroundings around them.

    I'm not South Asian, but I probably act more English than Indian. I've lived here all my life, how else do you expect me to act? I'm not going to put wearing Asian clothes now am I, but that doesn't mean I'm trying to act "white". It's how and where I've been brought up.
