: i don't like to be part of any nationalistic "group"... i know you guys aren't "bad," but i don't feel comfortable being part of a group that excludes anyone based on ethnic/cultural (or religious or sexist) associations... it doesn't mean that i don't appreciate you guys, or that i don't appreciate my people's history, it's just that i already have my wolf pack to run with... you guys are WONDERFUL - i'll admit that any day, no matter what pancho likes to say to get at me (not in a "bad" or "evil" way, i realize)
I disagree... sorry.
The fact that we include you isn't because you are "genetically half" of us... it's that your state of mind and attitude are with us... and what is "us" anyway?
Fred always said that you can raise a Chinese baby in America a teach it to be a better "American" than white Americans, and it will hate its own people just as much as any redneck.
My point? We don't exclude... honestly.. it's not our bag, baby.
