You don't need the consent of the entire culture, nor can you fomrulated some criteria and say,. If you can't find a place at the table amongst some segment of such a belief, you can't be one of them...
even if you're black, white, or whatever the prevailing skintone is, no matter what you've studied, how you dress, the cuisine you eat, no matter.
