I donít go around yelling and screaming for everything to be in Celtic or German.... or DEMAND that I be recognized as such, I am content with being known as an American.

god forbid we were just americans. I despise all this sensitivity nonsense. Celebrate your culture the American one that is. If you were born here that is your heritage. celebrate differences, that is what makes us great, but it should never be a question on an application for school for example. The military asked for my race as well. My answer code was Z, I refused to answer. Why should it matter creed or color when you enlist?
I think it just teaches people they are less because they are not white, I only say that because as a non minority (for now) I get nothing in the way of benefit for my skin color or ancestry, so they must be looking at me as the ideal, otherwise why make a issue of it.
When we are kids we look at everyone the same, it is only after indoctrination we see each other as different.
