You are American first and foremost,to think you are anything else first shows a lot to me about someone.

So if white people are white first and THEN American how do you feel?

This has been illuminating to see that the problem lies with black people,no matter how much they deny it.

Who is this "we" you're talking about? I hope when you say "we" you aren't talking about black people because there are millions of black folks in this country who aren't hung up the crutch of racism. They don't blame people who have all been dead for 200 years for all of their problems and they don't believe that they are held back by anyone.

Easy to say that when you aren't being constantly judged based on your skin color. Maybe if people let up on the racist assumptions, blacks who identify as black first wouldn't feel the need to do so.

Did I say something that prompted the above diatribe?
