View From Purcell, Oklahoma: The Future of Racial Descriptions

The Future of Racial Descriptions

Personally, I hope the last cel is where we are going. Too bad we aren't all just Americans. All the bonus labels and qualifiers are doing nothing for our country and foster nothing but hate and distrust.

Nothing like advertising our differences by establishing protected classes and groups. A crime is a crime and should not need a special law like Hate Crimes. How many crimes are committed by someone who truly Loves the other person? Hate, envy, greed, etc are the causes, maybe we need a Greed Crime to go after those that target the elderly?

I agree with you totally, Than. I look at it his way. As we humans like to label everything I think it is time for us to realize that there is but 1 race... The Human Race. We are made up of different ethnicities not different races. We seem to be looking for an identity to cling on to. How about the identity that we have ONE Creator, the Word of God. We are all descended from the same original parents.

Than... we can thank our government for being the Great discriminator..... who else requires the ethnicity of a citizen.  The Fair Housing laws requre that we do not discriminate based on race, yet, the Government wants to know what your race is... sigh.

Than, unfortunately I see the liberal media and liberal democrats trying to stir up a race riot.

Zimmerman was described by the media as a "white Hispanic," perhaps to stir up the racial pot. Ironically, he turned out to be a registered Democrat. That's awkward, and has to put the kibosh to blame the Republicans. We'll all be better off without the media injecting their agenda into journalism.

Creating conflict among Americans is one way that government can further their growth and power by applying government made solutions.

part of the problem is that many people do not want to lose their roots and so the lables stay for that reason.

Who was the first president of our country to say we should all be Americans and NOT have hyphenated names?

It was George Washington.  This grouping into whatevers is nothing new.

Heck we even label generations.  We seem to have a need to label and be very specific.  We nickname celebrities, sports stars, politicians, cities and even our kids.
