In the first fly-by in preparing to review article for the DYK cited above, some questions arose:

The examples and perspective in this article deal primarily with the United States and do not represent a worldwide view of the subject. You may improve this article, discuss the issue on the talk page, or create a new article, as appropriate. (July 2013) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)

Think it's a very interesting topic and article is generally well structured/ref'd, etc, and would like to see it go somewhere. Djflem (talk) 13:57, 17 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The term was introduced for the social phenomenon in the US, so yeah, it applies to the US only. Some people might use it for Canada, Europe, etc., but the term by Gans is for the US.
The term White Anglo Saxon Protestant is used in the introduction, while the term European American is used in the Overview section. They are different and in contradiction to each other as presented. What you mean?
A claim is made with regard to language preceding the list of self-identified ethic groups in the USA. Can there be a an in-line citation added? An inline citation for what? --Երևանցի talk 19:49, 17 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The claim that: Although language isn't the only factor determining one's ethnicity, it is a major factor. In which citied is that claim madd? Needs a inline citation.Djflem (talk) 21:25, 17 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Two refs added. --Երևանցի talk 23:11, 17 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I flagged it with a globalize because although the term may have developed in America, it is clearly a more widespread phenomenon and examples can be found over the world although not necessarily referred to with the same name in the literature.

Merge proposal[edit]

Just came across the undiscussed merge proposal. I would vote against merging, since these are not the same concepts. Yuchitown (talk) 19:43, 27 December 2018 (UTC)YuchitownReply[reply]
