How do you stop wishing you had an interesting, worthwhile cultural identity?
>>
Remind yourself that at least you're not a nigger
>>
>>16760394
Nope. Not working.

A nigger with my advances and education would be massively popular where I'm from purely for being one.
>>
>>16760405
Then use your fucking advances and education.
>>
>>16760405
literally any white culture has something to be proud of, fuck off man.
>>
>>16760430
Being a bilingual white man is literally the default state. It doesn't get you a headstart where I'm from.
>>
>>16760462
Not mine.

Our art is shit, our music is shit, our culture is shit and there is literally nothing to be proud of. The only traditional clothes are a gallery of fucking clown costumes people don't even recognise.

>>
>>16760485
What's wrong with being a peasant?
>>
>>16760507
It's not an interesting, worthwhile thing to be?
>>
>>16760535
Are you irish?
>>
>>16760635
Finnish.

It's like being irish but with no pretty women, no folklore, no culture, no music, no art, and no cultural identity.
>>
>>16760647
At least you're not estonian, they have even less! And you have ievan polkka.
>>
>>16760647
what? are you drunk or baiting?
Even I know fins have a lot to be proud about.
>>
>>16760693
Technological advancements aren't a piece of a culture. When you think about, say, America, your first thought isn't "ceiling fans!"
>>
>>16760385

everyone finds their own culture boring. its normal life for them. thats why so many aspire to move to america. even though we see it as culturless and generic
>>
Isn't finnish nation associated with vikings and all this skandinavian stuff? I like it a lot if this comforts you
>>
>>16760647
be proud of the fact you share heritage with this man
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjiurMlfS2E
>>
>>16760708
No. Finland was never part of the viking kindoms, just a land they raided for slaves. Some people are still in denial about the fact that Finland is not a part of Scandinavia, and some STILL don't know it's technically a part of Eastern Europe.

>>16760716
Well there's a meme I haven't seen for a long time.

>no cultural identity
fug that
>>
>>16760722
Anyway, you live in a very well-developed country so you are supposed to be satisfied with that fact. At least your country doesn't invade other ones and it isn't put under sanctions because of a dumb president.
>>
>>16760724
If there was a cultural identity to begin with, it would not have been taken over by foreign influences. An empty cup is easy to fill.

All we've had for thousands of years has been serfs, peasants and poverty. There was no time to develop a culture, so now that there's wealth, everyone is buying into other peoples' cultures.
>>
Well this is a bait thread

t. person from Funland :DD
>>
>>16760385

Do white people really think about these things?
>>
>>16760750
All the time.

Every morning I wake up and look in the mirror and wish I wasn't the human equalent of a glass of skim milk.
>>
>>16760753

Why not define yourself?

If things really are as you claim then you could probably start a movement in your community to establish a positive culture. Looking back and letting the past define you is for faggots anyway.
>>
>>16760760
>Why not define yourself?
What am I supposed to do?

I am an overwhelmingly plain and average human being. Faking a better, more interesting personality will just look fake and kind of sad.

How do I "establish a positive culture" without having nazis bandwagon it?
>>
>>16760775

Look around in your community and take note of the good things going on, then maybe make a facebook page or some shit talking about how Fins are hard working, industrious, educated, etc.

I'm sure if you're crying about this there there are a bunch of other white kids sad about how nobody thinks of Finland who will join the page.
>>
>>16760780
Finland literally has no other culture than the circlejerk about being hardworking and modest.

Our only defining trait is a modesty circlejerk.

it's 100% just as disgusting as it sounds.

We have no art. We have no music. Our traditional costumes are fucking clown outfits. The traditional foods are either plain or disgusting, and expensive and hard to make so nobody cooks them.
>>
Wow, do I not give a flying fuck about my completely white ancestor's culture. I don't suppose I'd care any more if I were a different race, but I dunno, perhaps if I were black I'd be more interested in my origins or something.

I don't really need my heritage to be cool to feel worthwhile or interesting. I'm interesting enough as myself.

>but of course I am, I'm a tripfag
>>
>>16760789
I know that Denmark and Sweden have huge art scenes. I'm kind of surprised that Finland doesn't.

Though honestly, having arguably the best education systems in the world, being the happiest country in the world, etc is pretty good by itself.

>oh god don't tell me you don't appreciate your own socialism
>>
>>16760799
Not that anon, but are you retarded? Topping the world in statistics is not a culture. No one said he's not happy with his country, he's unhappy with his lack of culture.

>then again, what did I expect from someone who thinks they need a trip
>>
>>16760793
>I'm interesting enough as myself.
I'm not.

>>16760799
We're actually falling behind on education super fast, the finances are being cut from schools because of the falling economy, and all the "happiest country in the world" nonsense is all external shit. The culture and the genetics are still deeply unhappy.

A finnish woman who has two children from a man who doesn't beat her will still be equally unhappy as a sudanese woman who has 6 children from being raped by different men, because the 7th one died of an easily preventable disease.

And one of the finnish woman's kids will attempt suicide before the age of 18.
>>
>>16760385
By having an interesting, worthwhile personal identity?

What kind of person do you want to become? Work on becoming that. If you're doing it right, you will have no time left to worry about cultural identity or lack thereof.
>>
>>16760789

I don't know. Maybe you should kill yourself then, sounds like you're just a whiny little bitch.
>>
>>16760819
>What kind of person do you want to become?
The kind of a guy you invite to parties for the entertainment value, but in a good way.

Like "you should meet anon, he's really fun to spend time with."

The kind of a person who's actually actively invited and included into things because people actually want me there, instead of out of pity if at all.

I don't know how to do that, though.
>>
>>16760789
I'm a beaner, not ugly looking, if I go to Finland, would I be able to pick up girls because of my accent and being Mexican?
>>
>>16760835
can't help you there, I don't get invited to parties much and when I do, I often don't go
>>
>>16760842
idk in my experience girls sleep with guys because they're scared they're going to be beat up or raped if they say no. So my experience of this kind of thing is a bit too warped to give any legit advice.

There's two kinds of foreigners in Finland. The ones who are there for fun and the ones who are there because they have to. So as long as you give a suficient air of being a tourist and being in Finland for shits and giggles, you should be fine.

Also, go out of your way to try to respect the culture and the women. Finnish women are all feminists so brush up on your feminist-pandering.

I don't see why you'd bother, though. They all look like british men.
>>
>>16760835
>The kind of a guy you invite to parties for the entertainment value
Easy. Down a whole bottle of rum and throw up on a hot girl's tits.

>but in a good way.
lmao not gonna happen
>>
OP, you need to start reading your history and looking at what is good and interesting about it. You also need to travel more. I am Irish. For a long time, I wished that I had a more interesting culture for similar reasons to you. However, after spending some time travelling and meeting people of other cultures, I began to appreciate my own.

When you meet people in other countries, the first thing they do is ask where you are from. After that, they usually have more questions about your home country. That alone, makes you want to find out more about your history and culture. It often surprises me how interested other nationalities are in Irish culture.

Get out, meet new people, see the world and read more.
>>
>>16760933
I've read all there is to the history. Nothing but peasants. There is nothign good or interesting about it, there's nothing but fucking peasants.

Where do I need to travel? All the other cultures are interesting except for mine and maybe Kentucky. Kentucky is so fucking boring that all the white people claim to be Irish.
>>
>>16760938

Anywhere. Pick a country and go. It doesn't really matter where you go, travelling is always going to be one of the most fulfilling things you can do.
>>
>>16760960
Okay...

How do I do that without getting robbed, killed or gang raped?
>>
>>16760976

Start safely and be smart. Don't start by going far away. Maybe start by going somewhere else in Europe. For example, last year, I visited some Mediterranean and Balkan countries during the summer, they were very safe because they were so full of tourists looking for sunshine.

Is there a European country that you've always liked?
>>
>>16761024
Dude. I've been to Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Russia (to St. Petersburg), Austria, UK three times and driven through Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Germany on a road trip to go to a dog show in Paris. Europe doesn't count as "travelling".

Also, tourists always mean pickpockets. The more tourists, the more people who steal their shit for a living.

The more places and people I see, the more I see that Finland has no culture. Nothing.
>>
>>16761119
Did you do this on your own or with family? How old are you? Europe does count as travelling. There is a danger of pick pockets and robberies and such everywhere you go. If you are that confidant that you have seen everything Europe has to offer, then book a flight to an Asian, African or Middle Eastern country and go.

You sound very young and naive, OP. That is not a bad thing, but you have a lot to learn.
>>
>>16761188
I went to Sweden, Norway, Austria, UK and the road trips with family, and Iceland and Russia with school.

Oh, and I went to Kentucky seveal times to play house with an internet friend I eventually didn't want to marry after all.

I'm 22, and the danger of pickpockets and robberies is minimal in most of Finland.

How do you not get killed in a country that doesn't speak english? What are the safest countries to go in the other continents?
