I believe it is and was proper to recognize that USA-Americans are from various/different races, different nationalities and other corresponding differences such as religion. As a second generation American citizen and having served in WWII I have no problem with having my lineage recognized as a Euro-American or even as a Russian-American. I believe much of the societal problems in the USA today are exemplified in the difference between what is in USA generally taken as a ‘Melting pot’ where all individual history is lost for/to the characteristic of commonality. My preference as a second generation USA-American is to view the USA as a ‘Melding pot’ where all the lineages are blended together to form that Constitutional entity noted as a ‘more perfect Union’. I see and feel that in today’s political/social environment the context of ‘a more perfect Union’ is being compromised by our politicians and courts to the causes of what are truly foreign influences. I am especially concerned with the Islam/Muslim influence that has been permitted to build influence and power beyond an intent/goal to ‘meld’ that ‘more perfect Union’ as It’s proclaimed goal is conquest not merely ‘melding’ politically with our established Constitution.
Please, keep talking. You are very interesting, of a person.
If you want to hang with muslim goat bumpers you go right on ahead but I wouldn’t expect to find a lot of friends here at FR.

Never thought of it that way. I guess it’s all in how you play your cards. Then what card or hand trumps another.
First, thank you for your service. My late father fought in WWII.
But this hyphenated-American crap is just that....crap. It makes no sense why you would want to be identified as anything other than American.
That's the kind of thinking that keeps us from HAVING a true melting pot. Instead, we have a bunch of balkanized groups that want the benefits of living here while still holding to their country of origin's culture.
