Question and answer
How does White ( European descent) group differ from other racial/ ethnic groups ( such as differences in ancestry,language,or culture) ?
African American ethnicity is usually defined by dark brown skin color. [ [ However, shared experience and dialect are often as important since the range of skin coloration is quite broad among African Americans today due to centuries of interbreeding with Europeans, Native Americans, and, more recently, Asians. African Americans have had a relatively low frequency of intermarriage, though this
is beginning to change also. In 1970, only 2.6% of their marriages were with European Americans. By 1993, the rate had increased to 12.1%. The number of intermarriages by African American men has been 3? times higher than those by African American women. Asian and Latin Americans have a comparatively high intermarriage rate with other ethnic/racial groups. Among Asian Americans, 12% of the men and 25% of the women have intermarried with others, especially European Americans. The relatively high rate of intermarriage for Asian and Latin Americans likely is an indication of a lower resistance to assimilation in their communities and a greater acceptance of them by the dominant European American society. However, assimilation is not easy or even possible for members of some minority groups since they are subject to more persistent stereotyping and discrimination. This is generally the case with African Americans today. Partly in response to this rejection, assimilation has ceased being a desirable goal of many African Americans. ] ]

User: What has been the White( European descent) group's experience with other groups?

Weegy: A European American (also known as a Euro-American) is a citizen or resident of the United States who has origins in any of the original peoples of Europe. [ This includes people via African, North American, Caribbean, Central American or South American and Oceanian nations which have a large European diaspora.[14] The Spanish were the first Europeans to establish a continuous presence in what is now the United States.[15] Martín de Argüelles born 1566, San Agustín, La Florida, was the first known person of European descent born in what is now the United States.[16] Twenty-one years later, Virginia Dare, born in 1587 on Roanoke Island in present-day North Carolina, was the first child born in the Thirteen Colonies to English parents. In 2009, German Americans (16.5%), Irish Americans (11.9%), English Americans (9.0%) and Italian Americans (6.4%) were the four largest self-reported ancestry groups in the United States forming 43.8% of the total population.[17] British Americans (English, Welsh, Northern Irish and Scottish) are estimated to be up to (20%) or (60,000,000) of the United States population.[18] Overall, as the largest group, European Americans have the lowest poverty rate[19] and the second highest educational attainment levels, median household income,[20] and median personal income[21] of any racial demographic in the nation ]
