    and I agree with you.

    Now, about that left-handedness... ;)

      Do you hate all labels based on skin color, or just white? Should we call ourselves European-American or Euro-American instead, or something else?

        I guess I should have said that I dislike being defined so narrowly or someone else choosing the definition of me.

        I also defy the concept of 'race' if that is what is meant by the label.

        I realize that labels are useful, for example, in affirmative action or leading us to understanding who is doing what to who (I'm looking at Republicans here) but I just wish it was not necessary.

        Thank you for asking me to clarify.

        Native American and Euro American. so yes, I think that is an apt title. I think only Native Americans really have the right to be seen as plain Americans. And speaking of which. Most of those Mexicans they want to keep out are native north Americans. They did not kill of most of my Native American ancestors just to let a bunch more come up from Mexico did they?

        That passed by; this can, too. - Deor
