Racism is an invention of Descartes, in Principles: viz there is no color hence no race. This is the source of racism as obloquy. More than this, racism is a world state purpose to eliminate peoples for the sake of the World State. Johnson and hordes others like him, jump without looking. See then, it's very simply and simply crap.

Of what point having a hyphenated name? Are you an American or are you not? Simple question. Where does your allegiance lie?

What a debased society we've become.

Tell the hyphenated-Americans that little nostrum. Too good to let go - too many special favors to leave behind - too much government largess to simply stop accepting...etc.

I wish this were as simple as semantics. It's not.
