Rant on racism

For sometime, I have observed and struggled with the societal views on racism and the views so willingly set forth by ordinary, political, and governmental people alike.
Blacks, Whites, Jews, Hispanics, Asians, Islamic, Men, Women, Homosexual, etc.

And the most degrading and separatist of them all is to tack on "American" to the end of the categorization, as if it were to make it better or make it less of a category. Either you are American or Not.

Who ever said it was politically correct to categorize people to begin with.

Well from this instance forward I refuse to be politically correct.

And anyone who does not like it can simply refuse to talk to me.

From this point on, I set forth to state as follows to anyone who will listen.
We are not subject to anyone's categorization.

Because We Are HUMAN Beings.

Taking on additional stereotypes and labels only serves to increase the separations made between us all. The PC way might make a label sound better, but it's still a label.

The only category we should fall under is that of "Inhabitant of Earth".
Human For short.

So Humans, Welcome to Earth..

I find it stupid adding American on too. What is American? Someone who lives in America. It's almost like it's become it's own race.

They don't say African-Asian.
