Why?


Why do I have to see threads like this one in here?

What is the sick obsession with people in the US with race, ethnicities, language, skin color, facial features, and culture?

Ummm... I know I have quite a bit to drink, but doesn't ethnocentric mean that your culture is better than all other cultures? So to say America is ethnocentric would be like saying America thinks it is better than all other countries, right? Or have I had too much?

 I think it's Saturday night and I'm sick of all of us fighting about skin color. Every time there is another post about it, the feelings get stirred up all over again. Put the gas cans down folks....the fire's already started!! Now I'm going back to my wine and I mean wine.....not whine.....

Yes because no one here identifies as.... American... Haha weird right :)

I always say I'm American and that's what my kids will be taught. We are an American family, we have an American culture.
