    Affirmative action has really pisses me off

    Affirmative action has really pisses me off so I feel the need to address something here.
    If you refer to yourself as African American, Native American, Asian American, or whatever the case may be...then you're on the wrong page! By referring to yourself as such, you PROMOTE division in America.
    I am FED UP with people thinking they are owed something due to the atrocities their ancestors suffered decades if not centuries ago!
    Millions of Americans have never been guilty of mistreating ANYONE for their race, religion, gender, or sexual preference so if you think people should cater to for something that happened ages ago, you're terribly delusional and downright stupid!
    I don't care what your gender or creed is, NO ONE in America should receive special treatment for the color of their skin, gender, or sexual preference.
    You are owed NOTHING and you deserve NOTHING that you haven't worked for and earned by the sweat from your brow!
    If you feel differently, SAVE IT, because I really don't give SCHEISSE how you feel about it. Why? Because you are no different than the parasites of society with their Obama phones in hand.
    Stop asking what your community or country can do for you, and start asking what you can do for your community and country!
    Drop the hyphens and be an AMERICAN because whether we perish or thrive, we are all in this together.

    That message is about as useful in uniting America as the freeloaders.

    Cultural diversity has little to do with entitlements. Stereotyping people will never unify the country, it will only tear it apart.

    Good job.

    There was nothing particularly divisive about the original post. I feel the same way sometimes because a lot of times these attitudes exceed cultural diversity and approach whining and cries of racism. But that's just me and my helpful English-Irish-Scottish-French American self speaking!

    What pisses me off is the necessity for affirmative action. There's still plenty of people out there who discriminate, and plenty of people who still get treated unfairly just because of what they look like. Affirmative action sucks, and does wind up hurting people, and probably keeps people thinking of themselves as separate when they shouldn't be. Unfortunately, can't get rid of it until everyone gets treated fairly. Wish there was something better to replace it with...

    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    How so? You know that everyone that says that they are Chinese-American said so because they want entitlements?

    Do you also believe all gun owners just want to shoot someone?

    What other stereotypes are okay to you?

    Maybe, all Christians are judgmental hypocrites?

    To the op, it's okay to have pride in being an American, but not okay to have pride in another country we come from?

    Opsspec, The "Hyphenated American" issue is not a new one which surprises a lot of people. There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all... The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic... There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else…Theodore Roosevelt, Columbus Day, 1915
    Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia...Tenche Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.
