To all here, we are American and we are one.
I think that is the whole purpose of this thread: we come from all backgrounds and all nations, we all have different views and tastes and cultures, but we are also all American and it is that unity from diversity that makes us strong. Unfortunately, there are many today, some in this very thread, that do not see their neighbors as Americans, but as traitors for having those differing views. That is the very definition of bigotry, and it is alive and well in every hate-filled post.
It took an egocentric, narcissistic Yankee real estate tycoon, ironically, to show it for what it is. Had he not been elected, the hatred and vitriol would have remained hidden, along with the (real) racism and bigotry. But, thanks to that man, who speaks his mind instead of platitudes, we can now see others for what they are: mostly Americans who care not for anger and divisiveness, but with too much splattering of those who do.
its funny when white people say they are mixed with native american given its usually because of rape somewhere down the line
