    Wht Is A Brit?

    I know that Lala is one; and so am I! But. what makes me laugh over here at the moment is the Foreigner Go Home brigade who target African, Asian and even European Brits. Read on. I clearly do not have the right to reside... We as an Island, have always been a good target for...

    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...

    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!

    I Agree With 12345fly.

    I mean, honestly.. When you got back far enough, you're from somewhere else. Whether it be heritage from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, Japan, other Eurasian (Euro-asian?) countries, Africa, etc etc etc. You're from somewhere else. Your heritage is not purely American...

    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...

    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.

    Does The Term Illegal Immigrant Really Make Sense? No.

    Name a reason how humans can be declared illegal? I bet you can't without bringing race into the issue. I have asked this question numerous times and not one person can bring a definition without naming a race or where a person comes from.The meaning of illegal is:il-le...

    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...

    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...
