Let’s Just Be American
It is often debated the terrible issue of ‘segregation’ in this country, well it is if you still live in the 50’s but if you are a strong American Patriot that has moved on from those mistakes and learned from them then you realize that segregation is a horrible thing, especially for us as people of such a great country that is “The United States Of America” so why is the political left still trying to segregate us all, pitting us against each other like we’re dogs?
Because the truth of the matter is, is that I believe that each of us are Americans, I don’t care exactly what it is that someone might believe or how it is that they might even feel about my beliefs and I certainly do not care about the color of their skin or where it is that they may have an ethnic origin from, that is not a problem for me at all. I love America and because of this I love Americans, though we often disagree from time to time, why is it that we can’t just all be Americans? Why do we have to segregate ourselves with titles such as “Asian – American” or “African – American” why is this even a thing at all, why aren’t we just fully American citizens of the United States? Even if someone be gay, or straight or whatever, if they are someone that truly wants to better this country for the good then they are Americans nonetheless, and the only ones that keeps segregating us in such a dramatic way is those who want power.
We don’t have to continuously fall for these lies that only breed more and more hate towards each other, hate towards whites because they are white and to the blacks because they are black, hate towards Asians because they are Asian, none of it makes any sense at all and none of it is even necessary at even the slightest, it is ridiculous. I find it hard to believe that people these days are still falling for this, I find it hard to believe that deep down people don’t want to be something more, something greater, something better than just someone that is being divided into categories like we are all slaves or pigs, I believe that people really want to just live their lives as American citizens.
There Is Hope –
I believe that regardless of what the mainstream media tells us, that we most certainly can come together, we might not always agree on every single little issue and we may never agree on every issue. But where we can find common ground let us find common ground, and no matter how impossible one may think it is, it isn’t, I have seen time and time again where no matter of race, faith or whatever differences it is that people may have they have came together and stood with each other against the Government that stands to threaten and take away ALL of our liberties, I have seen gays stand with Christian bakers and Christian Pizza shop owners and Christian T-Shirt makers, I have seen them stand together when their businesses were being threatened by people that only want to divide us more.
I have seen miraculous stories about Americans coming together in love, and standing with one another so that we all might be able to live a little more free in this country, because I believe that there is hope, Raven Symone who most of you may know was on the Cosby Show and on Disney’s “That’s So Raven” once made a statement almost too hard for the big O’ (as in Oprah) to handle.
“I don’t label myself. What I really mean by that is I’m an American,” the actress continued. “I have darker skin. I have a nice, interesting grade of hair. I connect with Caucasian. I connect with Asian. I connect with black. … I connect with each culture. … Aren’t we all (a melting pot)? Isn’t that what America’s supposed to be?” – Raven Symone
Yes! Exactly, that is exactly what America is supposed to be, the left and the right get so caught up in a strict political view that they often forget that we are still humans, we are still people and we are still Americans. We have all different kinds of races mixed in us and we have diverse families, friends and it is not a bad thing, I was amazed the other day when I was talking with an elderly colored woman and she couldn’t believe that I was talking to her in public it was like a throwback in time, I do not deny that racism still goes on and I don’t defend it in any sense, but we really have come a long ways in many good ways, in some ways we have grown better and in other ways we have grown worse.
So let us take great notice of our accomplishments and let us fix our failures from where we have fallen.
Whatever you believe, whatever your race is or wherever it is that your heritage may come from let’s not let that matter as much as who we really are as a people, I have mostly Apache blood in me, I have some Hispanic blood as well, I have Dutch and Irish and a lot of other races mixed in me, I’m a melting pot in one body, though I can’t for sure tell you exactly where my ethnic origin truly is and I can’t really tell you much about my tribe as an ‘Apache’.
But I can tell you that I was born and raised in Southeast Missouri of the United States Of America with a long desire in my heart to move out to Texas where I now reside, I can’t tell you what types of food my ethnic origin might have but I can tell you that I like good ole’ American cheeseburgers and fries with a nice ice cold American Coca Cola to wash it all down with. If you ask me what race I am or where I’m from or what my ethnic origin is, though I am mixed with many, I’m most likely to simply reply with a great big smile on my face –
“I’m American, and I’m from Texas.”
