"Culture (/ˈkʌltʃər/) is, in the words of E.B. Tylor, "that complex whole which includes knowledge, belief, art, morals, law, custom and any other capabilities and habits acquired by man as a member of society."[1]

Cambridge English Dictionary states that culture is, "the way of life, especially the general customs and beliefs, of a particular group of people at a particular time."

I think (I hope) he may have been using the word in accordance with the definition and not how it's used colloquially.

We, as a society often equate culture with race; as if culture is an expression of race. It's not. 'Race' is bullshit, and while culture is often attached to our minds by way of our eyes, 'culture' is actually only just a word used to describe the situation when a community has established a shared identity, and then created ways by which they can express it.
There are cultures and subcultures within Airsoft, just as there are in Canada, or the Earth, or Mars.
