i literally don't know why people are bent out of shape over this. This has been going on for years. Longer than some of these transplants have been here. There are many Armenians who contribute positively to our society. I hate the blatant generalization.

Armenian is an ethnicity. American is not.

If you were German, you would fly the German flag high. Even if you were American by birth.

agreed. the flags are not some sort of statement promoting non-assimilation. the flags are to bring awareness of the armenian genocide. they will come down at some point and people will forget about them until next april. since when is it not ok to be proud of your heritage? anyways, i'd rather see armenian flags flying around than confederate flags.

Agreed, this past Sunday (4/24) was the 101st anniversary of the Armenian genocide. This is not about rooting against the U.S. or anything of the sort.

If the OP wants real trouble try looking to places in Europe where immigrants are not as assimilated and are active participants in terrorist plots against civil society. By comparison, a few Armenian flags here or a Mexican flag there, not a big deal at all.

Fortunately, the U.S. is not an "ethnic" nation but is guided by its immigrant past and most importantly by the Constitution and the promise of the pursuit of happiness for each individual (i.e., the Declaration of Independence).

Hey the Kardashians and Jenners have made MILLIONS and continue to make millions with those ruined reputations.

Even Brandon Jenner is worth $1million. The richest apparently is Caitlyn Jenner...even richer than Kim K.


The Kardashian-Jenner Clan Has a Net Worth of Over $300 Million!

It's easy to make money when you have a high net worth already. The father did all the work making them rich. Seriously I could have been richer than them by sticking the dads money into the sp 500. They'd be living a trailer park somewhere if the dad never was rich.

they'd probably be ok still with dad's money, but it was kim's sex tape that really got them to the big time.

That sex tape wouldn't have mattered if she didn't use her dads connections to actually be relevant enough
