I Say "we're All Immigrants So Shut Up"

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 396 People

    Yes!

    I think the name of the group pretty much says it all. The only people (in my opinion) who really have the right to gripe about immigrants are the Native American Indians, because, THEY WERE HERE FIRST! (Here meaning the U.S.A., just clarifying since I am in Japan and not over...

    THIS IS TRUE. IF YOU ARE NOT THE ORIGINAL INHABITANTS OF A LAND , AND YOUR ANCESTORS MERELY OVERTHREW THEM , THEN SHUT THE **** UP. IT'S NOT YOUR LAND , I DON'T CARE IF YOUR FAMILY HAS BEEN HERE SINCE THE NTH GENERATION. YOUR ANCESTORS WERE THIEVES AND USURPERS. AND NOW LOOK AT...

    Unless You're African, Living In The Rift Valley...

    ... then you're an immigrant. No exceptions. We evolved in Africa & small bands of humans made it out, often during wetter periods, through the Sahara. The whole world immigrated at some time or other!

    What Did Columbus Really Discover?

    The New World wasn't even his destination. How typical of a man to not ask for directions and just go blundering on....HA HA HA So he "discovered the new world". How can you say you discovered it when people were already settled there and were natives of the land? Isn't it more...

    Ignorance

    My Grandad always made me laugh. He would go on about how I should remember where I was born, that I am British, that my roots were here in the UK. It would only fire me up to provoke him even more, to accept that other half of my roots. This was all coming from a man...

    We Are All Immigrants

    Who The Hell Are You To Kick Anyone Out?

    This was Native American country FIRST, then was invaded by European immigrants, built by every kind of immigrant, so why shouldn't immigrants be welcome here? STOP HATING.
