I am a native American. LOL.
Then the other side of the family tree was here before there ever was a 'united' states.
So who stole WHAT?
Wouldn't know the fist thing about being Cherokee. or Welsh, or Dutch, or Irish.
I consider myself simply as an American.
My European ancestors came here for a reason.
The only people that have been brainwashed is those that think being called just an American isn't good enough.
It's a name that is synonymous with being EQUAL to any other person here. Including immigrants.

Oh a few crosses been burned on peoples lawns from time to time I reckon....some with real people attached too......
Snipers took care of the few who had a message for all....
The wet work crews are always busy....keeping things running smooth....
These kind of things is a human problem not a Mexican one....
Those who profit off of human misery have no nationality or loyalty...they are generally psychopaths...

Maybe those Mexicans should be burning a mock Mexico model, including the members of all the drug cartel and their dirty government officials so they can take their country back and stop coming to the US illegally, how about that.
They should be taking care of their own country affair rather than spending their time worrying about US politics.
Anyone that identifies themselves, and a 'latino' first, or any other ethnicity is the problem.
See because this is the United States of America.
Americans live here.
No American citizen holds any allegiance to any foreign state.

There is difference between stating your ethnic background which we all do a lot in the US and where your first loyalty lies. We assimilate here to become Americans first no matter what our ethnic background is. That doesn't mean we aren't proud of our roots, but that doesn't mean our roots are more important than our current national loyalty.
My roots are British, but you don't see me hanging off every story to do with the royals and shouting "God Save the Queen!" because I am American. This is my country. This is my land and my people and my home. I would fight and die for it if I had to, and I am someone who has American culture before I have British culture even though I retain some marks of my British cultural background here and there.
So, you can be ethnically Latino. You can have Latino cultural roots and markers, but you should be proud to be American and loyal to America as a citizen of this country. There are too many who are Mexican first (or Guatemalan or Salvadoran or Argentinian, or Chilean, or Chinese, or Iranian, or whatever country you care to name, etc. etc. etc.) and take this country for granted as a place to live only, not as their home and country they are loyal to. I take issue with them.
And this problem will only get worse as we continue to endorse multiculturalism which reinforces non-assimilation.
