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

    Stop

    Seriously, why do we have to be so overly thoughtful over things that carry no importance. First off race is not biologically based, ethnicities are, it annoys me when I hear hypocritical comments about immigrants. I hear people complaining about Mexican immigrants coming to...

    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...

    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...

    We The People

    So, I was in this class in High School where we'd have mock congressional hearing about parts of the Constitution of the United States. One of the topics that almost always came up was Illegal Immigration. The first time we discussed it as a class, I brought up the point that...

    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.

    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...

    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!

    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...
