Growing up in suburban Columbus, Ohio, my school was much more like Valley Groves than Clavey. The suburb that I grew up with was much more upper-middle class than middle class. We were the suburb that had the famous people living in it, such as Les Wexner (CEO of Limited Brands) and Bobby Rahal (Indy Car Driver). My school was modeled after the University of Virginia, so it had a college campus feel with brand new buildings and columns on the outside. My classmates were, for the most part, white upper-middle class students. Everyone had cell phones and the latest fashions, which was very different from the middle school I moved from, which was a much more ethnically diverse school. The interesting thing for me growing up in this school was the melding of “white culture” and rich culture. For me, it was always hard to distinguish between the two because the two were so entwined in my life. I had some previous interaction in my elementary school with lower-class and non-white individuals, but, for most of my friends and myself, we would see white culture as the iPhone having, Starbucks drinking, high school football attending culture we lived in. My friends played lacrosse and ran cross country and when we went to basketball games, we laughed at how much whiter our team was. I think Perry’s study is an interesting one that, like many social studies, does not have one simple conclusion. Trying to define “white culture” is hard because it has become less identifiable as more and more ethnic groups become normalized.
