Bill Clinton was America's first black President--Maya Angelou said so, and that's good enough for me. She didn't say, though, whether he remembered where he came from....

That startled me.
Really? Is that where all the scammers come from?

I've had several of these calls just in the past few days. Don't hear much from Sierra Leone, Chad, or Liberia---for some reason, it's always Nigeria....must be a lot of "Royalty" there, I guess....
That's an obvious Nigerian 419 scam.

Higley 1000, check it out.

But, this is not about Black and Brown but about what's right for America and the statistics say this is a bad situation unfortunately. But the biggest problem is it's illegal, bottom line, and everybody should have to come into this country the same way.
check the US Census figures, most first generation immigrants are very wealthy compared to AAs.

Asians lead in the wealth category.

I think that Asians earn a higher income than Whites. Asians are the richest minority group yet their numbers in Government positions are very limited. Hispanics have been in the U.S since the beginning of the U.S itself. However, our numbers were very small compared to that of AA's and just recently have the number of Hispanics outnumbered AA's in population. Getting down to it.. AA's have been here for a longer amount of time in greater numbers so they hold more important positions and some are highly educated. Don't worry, Hispanics will be up there in due time. May take a generation or two though.

Maybe in a generation or two y'all will stop referring to yourself as a "Hispanic" like it's a race.

Cameron DIAZ is NOT the same race (or ethnicity, really) as Jorge the Taqueria attendant.

We are a people (Latinos) who have a very strong culture and is hard for us to try to assimilate to other cultures. And "La Raza" is referring to "The Race". Amerindian and Spanish. I don't think Latin Americans from other countries refer to themselves as La Raza-- It's just a Mexican thing. Who knows.. Jorge in the taqueria and Cameron Diaz could trace their blood lines back to Spain and you could be surprised.

And; most WASP's (English/Irish/Scots/Welsh) can also trace their genetic heritage to Spain as well

Take a look at Donny and Marie Osmond------they can pass for stereotypical Hispanics. Catherine Zeta-Jones as well.

I suppose,... seeing as Dick Cheney and Barak Obama are related, we must all be. Therefore, we are all one race,.. The Human Race. So let's stop the crying and bigotry. If you're in violation of the law, it was YOU,.. take responsibility and stop the stupidity of blaming someone else for your infractions.
