The whites are at top of the food chain in America.
Surely, being at the top........you want everyone to kneel down and obey or else.


I know of no one who thinks in this way.  After the civil rights movement, this kind of thinking just does not fly anywhere.  You can get fired from your job for making racist comments.  

There are more cases of 'white guilt' than white supremacists.  Those are a tiny minority and looked at as ignorant.

Identification with the group, with the race , with the country of origin is very a human trait.

...

Identification if fine, descrimination is not, that is how I bring up my kids, maybe you should too

I still claim ( am I know you disagree with me ) that the American habit of adding a prefix to American is devisive and aids segregation amongst people. If you are American then so be it, no need to add African, Irish or whatever in front of it


I'm totally cool with it.  It shows respect.  The only ethnicity that is 'american' are the native americans.   Everyone else came from somewhere else.  Our roots, ethnicity, lineage, etc.  is all foreign.  The hypens recognize that.  And we should always know that we don't really belong here.  Its not our ancestral home.  If we claimed that, it would be disrespectful to native americans.

Again I disagree, the natives should not be called American at all by your logic, the place was not called America until after the "foreigners" came.

Until ethnic titles are dropped then there can be no true integration
