A pair of Indian-American boys reported attacked African-Americans girls at a New Jersey high school football game, and according to Dr. Nell Irvin Painter, author of “The History of White People,” in the New York Times, the boys were “enacting American whiteness” and showing how “race is something we perform,” not just something related to the color of our skin.

In short, the Indian-American boys were guilty of white supremacism in acting out white culture.

It reminds us of how George Zimmerman was termed a “white Hispanic” in the New York Times.

“In the New Jersey incident, the heritage or skin color of the boys suspected of the assault doesn’t matter,” Painter explains. “What matters is that they were participating in this pattern and thus enacting whiteness in a very traditional way.”
