The problems of today aren't caused by the color of the skin. And I am appalled that those that would call themselves "free thinkers" would succumb
to this fascist nationalist way of thinking.
People have to remember that Latinos born in this country or immigrate to this country legally have just as much of a right to call themselves an
American as those who have European ancestry.
People often complain about multiculturalism, however, they forget that America has never been one culture, EVER. We as a nation have always been a
mix of many many cultures and it's one of our greatest strengths.
However, there is a push in this country to try and pass a white nationalist ideology as something other than what it is. They want to make everyone
think that if whites aren't on top, somehow this nation will loose it's national identity, which simply isn't true. Americans are Americans whether
they are white, black, Latino, Muslim, Jewish, Christian, or whatever.
These people however want everyone to think that anyone who is Latino is here illegally, everyone who is Muslim wants to push Sharia law. This is a
very ignorant, bigoted world view, it's un-American for people to have this view of others. This isn't what America is supposed to be about. But, no
matter what anyone says, some people aren't going to be tolerant of others, some people are going to be bigoted and I guess no one can change that.
But I wanted to thank you for at least bringing to this topic some sanity, from some of the responses, it almost seemed like rejects from Stormfront
or other white supremacist groups took over this topic.
