All white people have certain things in common related to the genes they have in common.

But being british is not one of those things.
And being british is not really a genetic category.
Your nationalism is lacking clarity. I seriously wish you would refine it a bit.
Dude...I agree that blacks and yellows are not white.

But white is also not the same thing as british. And there are differences between various populations of whites.
You really need to incorporate more stuff into your worldview.
Look...haplogroup is not the same thing as race...but it is significantly correlated to a certain genetic cluster. Let us consider the most common haplogroup among english people, R1b1...here is a map of how common that haplogroup is:
Not a 1 to 1 correlation with what you would define as white...right? Not many R1b1 in poland, for example...but for sure the polish are white.
The subject is a lot more complicated and nuanced than you are making it.

It is a fact that our nation has always been influenced by the presence of different races and nationalities and their undeniable contribution to our culture and economy. But the struggle against ethnic and racial discrimination in the UK is not yet over.
Throughout society there are still subtle and sometime explicit racial stereotypes and prejudices displayed everyday.The Great British Community is dedicated to continue emphasising the contribution of diverse ethnic cultures and racial diversity to our modern British Identity.

The black British history you may not know about

And then colonialism happened, and that has shaped the experiences of black people - but that is not all we are."
These are the words of Lavinya Stennett, founder of The Black Curriculum, an organisation which teaches black British history in schools - and is campaigning for Education Secretary Gavin Williamson to make it compulsory.The death of George Floyd in America has inspired thousands of people in Britain to demand justice, marching through the streets of our biggest cities.
Black Lives Matter protesters here insist that the UK "is not innocent". But some commentators have questioned whether racism exists in Britain, and to what extent.George The Poet, who was questioned about this on Newsnight, believes a lack of education about black British history - and the British Empire - plays a part in racism in the UK and our discussions about it.

"lf you're omitting different histories and narratives, you're saying that these people aren't part of this country, this nation, this heritage - or they're not important enough to be taught as common knowledge," says Melody Triumph, policy specialist at The Black Curriculum.
