    He's male.
    He's white.
    He's on the inside of the power structure.

    When one is powerful, belonging to an ethnic tradition that is no longer viewed as somehow 'deficient' or 'defective' or 'threatening' - "Fully Integrated", to the main stream, bringing up roots is a cynical way to connect to the hoi polloi, to fool people into thinking the cultural experience stands for some type of core decency.

    When one is a member of the oppressed group, bringing up one's roots is viewed as an object of derision by those in power.

    It's clear in every word out their mouths. They despise Hispanics, just as they despise anyone who is not exactly like them, or for the few tokens, willing to genuflect to their lies.

    We've been poisoned by these fairytales ..

      ...is a made man.   A Republican.  He can do whatever the f**k he wants, and the Founders wanted that same thing by definition.

      Thomas Jefferson, for example, was a big proponent of strip-searching underaged kids, just like Alito.

      Fox "News" = Republican PRAVDA.
