Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Which reminds me...
Isn't one of the reason we're told those slurs aren't as bad is because they're not as common, haven't been used reuglarly in so long, and generally are less prevelant then the N-word.?
Is that not the same thing in regards to "Irish-Americans" or "Italian-Americans", as they're not nearly as common, haven't been regularly used in a long time as a daily designation, and are generally less prevelant then African-American.
I'd say the only thing that is as commonly used recently is "mexican-American" and that's only since the immigration stuff really upticked.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
These children will be equally able to blend into either culture, but they will also be removed from each by some degree. This is one of the major reasons why children of immigrants, regardless of the nation of origin, tend to befriend each other at higher rates than they befriend children of non-immigrants. There is also a high tendency to marry other children of immigrants or actual immigrants (first-born children of immigrants have a higher tendency to marry immigrants than their siblings).
Also, many of them will have dual-citizenship, making the hyphenated term correct on a very technical level as well.
For their kids, however, the hyphenated term becomes insignificant and it doesn't apply, especially after they become "mogrelized", like my own children will be.

As such, He is distinctly seperate from self-styled African Americans in that His acsnestors were not held by White Americans as slaves, and therefore has no legitimate claim to share in their plight.
I say "people of color" sometimes (or "women of color", or "children of color", or whatever).
I like the sound of it; it's inclusive. Some of the smartest black people I know say it.
Nobody's ever told me it's hurtful or unacceptable.
If it becomes unacceptable in the future, I'm sure someone will let me know.
