What does it mean to be White ?

The historical oppression and plight of people with darker skin color has been extensively documented in the recent past and I've found that a great deal of "Black" identity is tied into color.

And this makes me wonder if "White" people ever think about themselves in terms of color. So I ask you, what does it mean to be White ? Does it shape your heritage your thoughts your views or your life ?
