    As I've already said just about everyone on this planet has African ancestors if you look back far enough.

    Spain is also in Africa and in the Atlantic Ocean (The Canary Islands.).

    Some people call it playing the race card.
    Those people don't know the difference. Those (most) are stupid.

    Why don't you just use a straight razor and get the whole job done at once?

    Thus, there are no Americans?

    :0) TRUTH be told .. everybody on this board and who has ever lived as a modern human is of African descent.

    Truth be told, a sample of your mitochondria would reveal what region of Africa YOU come from. :0)

    You could call yourself an African-American and have a point. :0)

    You know, since this is America...the lack of nationalism in the left is absolutely baffling.
    Is it so bad to be American? The phrase "I'm an American" is like mental pepper spray to the lockstep liberal.

    As mentioned, I was raised by a Sicilian and an Irishman, that upon getting citizenship, no longer referred to themselves as the such. Recognized the melting pot ideology that made this country great, and embraced it with both arms (like real Americans do). I am far more "cultured" (if that's what you call traveling to foreign places, eating food, seeing historical objects/sites/buildings/artwork, I just call it traveling and eating) than you give me credit for, I've seen, well quite a bit. Been quite a few places. There's no-place like home. Home is not where your ancestors or parents came from...it's here.

    My parents call themselves American. What's your excuse? Embrace your country, I promise, it's not so bad.


    and what the hell was I baiting? Someone clue me in here. Catalyzing a conversation many don't want to have isn't baiting.



    The relative lack of nationalism on the left is more than made up for by the extreme, xenophobic hyper-nationalism of the extreme-right losers in the USA

    I've got to side with you here....I believe they were here before all this migration business.
