Once you have decided for yourself that the person fits the counter-racist definition of a white person. You can find that on page 20 of the code book or in the Counter-Racism Definitionary.

White People

Neckst,

I would Also suggest, listening to the Words they say/use.

If they refer to other People as "People of Color" but NOT themselves as a Person of Color...then that may be a Clue right there as to whether they are a White Person or Not. Most importantly, whether they FUNCTION as a White Person or not.

If they refer to "Colored People" as MINORities, but NOT themselves as a MINORity, that is yet another clue.

If they refer/call themselves "WhiteBread", that is another clue.

You should also look at their physical features (but they are not as important as before since "White" People change the physical "requirements" of physically being "White" everday)...Features such as:

-Blonde Hair
-Light YELLOW-ish Skin COLOR (a *White* Person that is Light *Yellow*-ish Skin COLORED...(((shakin my head))) ).
-Light *BEIGE*-ish Skin COLOR

and so forth...

Through observations and careful listening, I have noticed that some White People will give themselves away in a middle of a converstation. Not always, but sometimes they will.

One of the Questions they may end up answering is:

"What is that Persons Racial Background ?"

and they would answer:

"Oh, He/She is White"

or

"I am White"
