A related question that I was once asked by a friend from Milwaukee: Is Madison segregated? I used to think no, until I lived in Madison. It’s probably not as bad as in areas of Chicago, but now I would answer yes, Madison does have some segregation. Should it?
No, of course not. Is that the reality? I think it is. Anyone disagree?
I would like to hear the reasoning.
Related to TDPF, I think people have other priorities than spending time on a forum. It’s more a choice of how one spends their time than anything else: PS3, TV, reading, out with friends, or another online site perhaps? I hoped for more responses in my Holiday Traditions thread other than European-descent or Americanized traditions. Or even some Jewish or Quanza experiences would have been fun to hear about. I did enjoy all the posts, don’t get me wrong! I like to learn about how cultures other than mine celebrate life events, whether it be holidays, cooking, birthdays, adulthood, marriage, death, religion, all that stuff is interesting and gives me perspective and appreciation.
The Republican primary and TDPF have two things in common concerning nonwhites: They (nonwhites) don’t care about it. They don’t spend/waste their time on the subject because it’s not relatable. Races that have been oppressed are too smart to believe the GOP bullshit about the American Dream and that they can become a millionaire overnight. Why the honkies down South buy it, I just don’t get.
I honestly could give less than
two shits about the GOP primary, and Newt’s hypocrisy is so blatant I want to puke. The way he is now bullying the press also makes me sick. He is a man-pig.
All our ancestors, except Native Americans, were immigrants to this country at one time or another. Remember that the next time you think someone's culture is strange. People probably thought that about your relatives too, way, way back when. My father was an immigrant who got his U.S. citizenship when he was 18.
Just a general FYI in case anyone cares: an ethnic term + “American” is not hyphenated: Asian American, African American, European American. It doesn’t matter where in the sentence the noun is.
No offense, just putting it out there for y'all.
