    I'm not disputing your claim.  I'm simply expressing that this is news to me.

    The Palestinians/Arabs who are Israeli citizens - have you a non-offensive term I may use to refer to this group of people in place of the one you're telling me is offensive?

    Struggle with dignity against injustice. IS there anything more honorable that a person can do?

      Palestinians in Israel, Palestinian citizens of Israel, Palestinians with Israeli citizenship, ect.

      Many people of Mexican ancestry prefer Chicano or Mexican-American to "Latino American".  It's not entirely different than that, but perhaps a bit more loaded.

      Few Americans today question that Mexico exists and has a right to exist.

      income gains to the top 1% from 2009 to 2011 were 121% of all income increases. How did that happen? Incomes to the bottom 99% fell by 0.4%
