    Dehumanization is something we need to stay vigilant against.
    No you didn't. ...and no need to "gotchya" either. You got yourself. I asked if you thought humans were animals and you countered that comparing them to dogs is dehumanizing. Nice try though...

    Which it is. Would you like to be treated like a dog?

    Nothing could be more disgusting or as offensive to natural law than eugenics of any sort.

    Here is another example most Americans do not always understand.

    From the crowd and the singer, you might think this is in Europe.

    No.

    This concert is in Brazil. Many of these are obviously Euros.

    The video was disabled by the owner it said. But I have no doubt Europeans make up a large portion of Brazil population. I have been to several countries while in the army and have seen how night clubs cater to certain groups, foreign nationals or even foreigners who have moved to that country, either retired in a foreign country or went to work in the foreign country. In today's age, that is very common.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    It's okay. We're big kids here. We can handle labels I think. Get ready the recess bell is about to ring!

    I think I might be a little confused but are you saying we need to add a new race to define what people describe themselves as hispanic? If I remember from when I did my census there was the race (white, black, asian, etc) then another additional question asked if I was also hispanic. So are you saying instead of me identifying as white hispanic or whatever there should be another race box, which you call Mestizo? I think it is rather confusing for some, like for me I am a white hispanic but my husband is not white but he is not black or asian either. He does not have anglo features at all yet he would probably be put into the white category as well which doesn't really make sense.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
