In this day it seems every ethnic group wants to be identified by their group first. Example african american etc.
My ancestors were German and Native American. Personally I don't care. I am an American. What they were is nothing to me.
Legal hispanics or Hispanic Americans= same to me. I'll take them over an illegal anything anyday.

I would like to point out that MCSO has detained, and transferred to ICE, unlawful immigrants from over 20 countries including some from countries like Iran, Syria etc.

Illegal immigration is not limited merely to Mexico. Not by a long shot

The funny thing about that, (but not really) is that white Americans have been paralyzed with guilt since slavery. The media has allowed racist pimps such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to back all of you into a corner and cower in fear of being called a racist, even when it is unmerited. You have allowed the corporate crooks, illegal alien racists and their ethnocetric masters to do the same.

I am an NOT an African American. I wasn't born in Africa, nor have I ever been to Africa. As a matter of fact, I have more in common with my white American counterparts than I ever will with a foreigner, specifically those who are African, just ask one of them, they will tell you the same. As a matter of fact they seem to take pride in ridiculing Black Americans as much as they do White Americans.

I am an American. If I just have to be labeled in terms of color, by all means call me a Black American. The fight we are in is an American fight. As far as I'm concerned regardless of color, those who are guilty of contributing to the destruction of my country are my only enemies.

I'd rep you for this statement if I could, because this is the real truth of the race issue in the USA at this time. We all were AMERICANS on 9-11-2001; but then we returned to our hyphenated identities not long afterward. This is an AMERICAN fight, being fought by AMERICANS of all ancestories! When these illegals and their supporters realize that we won't fall for this race crap any longer; but will see the enemy for what it truely is, (an unwanted invader, that isn't an American citizen) how will they find a way to defend their baseless point of view?

I could have rode the minority bandwagon all through College being part Apache but I chose the path of working my way through school as the last thing I wanted to be identified with was some govt pimped out lackey minority. That theme seems to have been lost today in the grab of tax payer paid social services. It's really quite pathetic with the something for nothing crowd.
