I'm so tired of this politically correct BS. This hyphenated Americanism needs to stop. If you live here, vote here, work here, and most importantly pay taxes here, and don't strap explosives to your body for your cause - you are an American...pure and simple. I don't give a damn about your sex, creed, culture, or religion. If you worship your AMC Pacer - we're talking a different story. WE NEED A CURRENT EVENTS/POLITICS SECTION TO THIS SITE ASAP!

Does it count if you live here, work here and pay taxes here but don't vote? Many of us are in this situation.

Oh yeah, before I forget..we also get the pleasure of not serving jury duty

Ha ha! Gotcha! Jury duty (at least in PA) goes by if you have a driver's license and not if you're registered to vote!

And I don't think listing your ethnic background has anything to do with being politically correct or not. Yes I'm American, but I don't want to forget where my great-grandparents came from either...that's important to me. No hidden political agenda intended .

can't beat getting the bucks in our economy. However - can't vote can't bitch - and I'm jealous of the jury duty exemption. I want to be you - you are my hero

All I'm saying is that I'm tired of this -American nonsense. We are all feakin Americans. Why do we have so say cuban-a, mexican-a, african-a. Tired of it - it's one big freakin melting pot here and we are all Americans. Enough already.

My family (if traced back) came from all different countries and backgrounds. I don't give a rat's ass. You are what you are - you do your thing here and follow the laws (and aren't an illegal) - it's cool by me.

They keep trying to get my into jury duty (Cali sends letters/notices to everyone who has a licence, citizen or not)...everytime they send me the letter I get to happy check the "I am not a US citizen box"....

I still bitch about the government here...even though I can't vote ( I'll bet you guessed by that comment that I am a women who has bitching perfected).

Thanks..you made my day

Please do keep in mind that e90post.com is not an Americans-only community. It IS international, and IMO that's what makes this community so great. We have members from all over the world, so we are not all freakin Americans here, even though the majority are. But still, you can't generalize the way you did

i think caucasian should be changed to european becuz it can be anyone from north africa, europe, or parts of asia. Caucasians derived from the Caucasus mountains, which are more Asian than european... my parents are from north india/modern day pakistan (punjab) but our family would be considered caucasian by scientific standards. sorry to point it out but i've seen this word misused a bunch of times.

Is "caucasian " european? I am born in Sweden, Europe and have lived here in 50 years and have never heard that before. Is that an american word for european?

We read about the Caucasus mountains at school and it was definatly a part of Sovjet (Russia now adays?) and not Europe.

Are there any british or other europeeans with english as therir mother toung that can give a europeean explanation to me?

Keep in mind, your true ethnicity is not a scientific thing, nor a cultural thing. I has nothing to do with your lineage or heritage. It's real and official purpose is to give the police a way to describe you on their radio.

They say every human being on Earth is related somehow. Did you guys ever hear the theory of 7...I think the number's seven, anyway.

Anyway, I think it goes, if you know 7 people, then you have a link into knowing every single person in the world...you know seven, they know seven...and so on and so on, so everybody knows everybody on the planet, kind of like we're all related.
