    Default White Americans: do you feel more affinity with African-Americans or Balkan Slavs?

    Yes I know what Smeagol thinks about this, but the point is even other right-leaning Americans regard him as extreme. So, I want to know your opinions about this.

    if we take this group of Romanians as an example of Balkanites, I think they look quite similar to Midwestern Americans (women in particular, men look more Balkanite):

    But the point is how much do they have in common with Midwesterners culturally or linguistically?

    I’m not knowledgeable enough on Balkan Slavs to have any genuine input so I’d have to say African Americans

    Culturally, quite a lot. I think the Midwest is the easiest region in the US for Eastern Europeans (not just Balkanites) to integrate in.

    Black Americans.
    Psalm 19:1-3:

    1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

    2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

    3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

    I have nothing in common with people from the Balkans except race and plenty in common with black Americans.

    Black Americans obviously, both live in the same country with same mentality.
