    A "WASP" I pretty clearly ain't.

    Needlessly playing up ethnic divisions serves only to increase factionalism, and factional tensions, within the body politick. It doesn't benefit much of anyone.

The thought of 'assimilation' and 'unity' brings to mind a drab, uniform society that I wouldn't like much.
    The 1950's, and of course the 60's of "Love, Sex and Rock n Roll" were sure fun. I can assure you that America wasn't a "drab, uniform society" back then. In fact there was more unity among the people. Except for the 1% Marxist and internationalist socialist, the vast majority of Americans were nationalist. America first. America number one, assimilation.


    >" With the demise of Marxism in the late 1980s, multiculturalism emerged as its major ideological successor. What follows is an overview of some of the creed's major precepts:

    Western culture was founded on aggression towards others. The whole of Western culture since the ancient Greeks is something to be disowned.

    Western literature and arts endorse imperialism. Rather than reflecting “the glory that was Greece and the grandeur that was Rome,” the Western literary heritage is politically contaminated. This charge is reinforced by a critical apparatus based on gender, race and class. Othello is branded as ethnocentric; Paradise Lost as misogynistic; Hemingway as pathologically heterosexual.

    The Western economic system exploits the rest of the world. Globalization is a euphemism for American imperialism. The poverty of the Third World is guaranteed by debts from the International Monetary Fund and the free-market policies of the World Trade Organization.

    Victimhood should prevail over individualism. Individualism is both the cause and effect of capitalism, which in its turn produced the imperialism that now oppresses the wretched of the earth. The idea of individual human rights deriving from the Enlightenment is the one great barrier to a collectivist solution for humankind..."<

    The fringe of the radical left hates this source since the messenger is a "red diaper baby" and use to be one of their top leaders. -> Multiculturalism - Discover the Networks

    You do realize that French Canadians and the rest of the country basically despise one another, right? There are more than a few separatist factions present in Quebec who want nothing less than complete independence.

    Well, it's their money. $4 million to say whatever they wanted to say. I say good on them. If you don't like the commercial, or if it bores you, go get a snack. Not everybody is going to like every single commercial. I hated the damn Budweiser frogs, and can probably guarantee you that I would not have found somebody shooting rainbows out of his butt very funny. Not a fan of Jim Carrey type humor.
    You miss my point that the Super Bowl is not the proper venue for those types of corny commercials. People are pumped up and happy! They want entertainment.

    I know right, some guy who doesn't even speak English is fleeing his corrupt, poverty-ridden, drug infested, crime infested country to come to one much safer where he can earn much more money and give a real future to his children.

    LOL WHAT AN IDIOT LOLOLOLOL

    That's not to see we should just let anyone in the country, or adopt Spanish because its spoken by most illegal immigrations, but to call someone like that an idiot its pretty damn ignorant. And its not just the illegal immigrants who speak Spanish you know, its also the legal ones... and millions and millions of US citizens....

    Dang - do you realize that African Americans have their own culture? African Americans have been here as long as we have. What about Native Americans? They have their own culture, and they were here first. And many of us have different goals. That doesn't make us bad, or "causing a problem." Just makes us different. Nothing wrong with that. It's why America is called the Great Melting Pot. Like I said, we are all descendants of immigrants.

    I agree 100%. If you want to take up residence in a country, it is your responsibility to learn about that country. It is utterly ridiculous to expect the country to change for you. Sometimes, I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone when I hear some of the things liberals actually think. It's hilariously unrealistic.

    On this, we will just have to disagree. I want our country to be as multicultural as possible. When I am in small town south Louisiana, I want to experience the Cajun culture. When I visit New York's Chinatown, I want to experience that culture. I dont want them to ever be same.

    African Americans speak English. My friend's step father is from Ghana, and he speaks German because he lived in Germany, French because he lived in France, and English because he now lives in the United States. That is how you do things. Otherwise, you are only making life more difficult for yourself.
