Jindal: Racism persists because minorities cling to their heritage

Jindal: Racism persists because minorities cling to their heritage | Mixed American Life | Scoop.it

Jindal accused minorities of placing “far too much emphasis on our ‘separateness,’ our heritage, ethnic background, skin color, etc. We live in the age of hyphenated Americans: Asian-Americans, Italian-Americans, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, Indian-Americans, and Native Americans, to name just a few.”

Community Village Sites's insight:

Racism persists because of xenophobic racists.


In Jindal's list of hyphenated Americans he forgot to mention European-Americans.


Jindal also listed Native Americans in his list of hyphenated Americans. The term "Native American" is not hyphenated.


There are four types of Americans: 

1. First Nations Indigenous Amerindians
2. Colonizer-Americans 
3. Immigrant-Americans 
4. Migrant-Americans

I had thought the best way to 'sell' open immigration was to tug at your heart strings, however Mr. Aldrete explains the benefits of immigration via our pocket books. He has the most effective description to 'sell' progressive immigration reform that I've ever heard.
