I've seen people use different definitions for Western Culture/Civilization. Sometimes it means Western Rome's legacy in Western Europe, Greek legacy in Europe(and the Middle East), post-Enlightenment Capitalist Industrial North America and Western Europe, Christendom Medieval Western Europe(Catholic Church). I think some of you here like Maciamo and Angela could give good answers.

To some people I think it just means being of European/White decent. I think some people if asked would consider the Amish or Saami Western but wouldn't consider African Americans Western. Some people would consider Spanish of the 1600s Western but wouldn't consider modern Hispanics in America Western. Do you guys agree the Western cultural label is almost as much about race to some as it is about culture?
