American Citizenship 101

with 2 comments

I guess Bush was right; the question truly is “Is our children learning?”

Obviously not and their parents can’t even help them with easy answers for American citizenship.  People who claim to love this country so much don’t know a damn thing about what it takes to become an American citizenship.

Fact: Obama is a citizen, even if he was born in Kenya (which he wasn’t) he would still be an American citizen by rights because … watch this… watch this now… his mother was an American citizen!

I know some would like to snatch her citizenship back for deigning to have a baby with a black foreigner.  Live with it!   And guess what, there are lots of other white women having babies with men of color who are American or foreign born.  And, oh no, that makes their children American, too.

Running around the blogs its pretty scary to see how some people’s ignorance of the world knows no bounds.  People are arguing that Obama can’t be black because his father was Muslim ergo he was Arab.  You can look at the elder Barack and see that he was black.  And there are black African Arabs.  There are white Arabs. There are Asian Arabs. 

And, some American history for the “ignant” who have found their way over to my blog many of the African slaves that were brought here hundreds of years ago were also Muslim. 

You’d know that if you read or got your news from some place other than Fox.

That is what is so frustrating about too many Americans –their lack of understanding of the world beyond their front door.  It’s not just white Americans; it’s black Americans, too.  I’ve been on forums where blacks were arguing that white Asians were oppressing black Asians and that most true Asians were really dark skinned but you don’t see them on TV because America likes to perpetuate the images of white Asians over the black ones.

Does anyone else see how stupid this is?  Damn people read a book!  Get out of your house and learn something, talk to someone new, to someone different than yourself learn about other cultures!

And don’t spam this post because I am not down with the dumb today.  If you have something stupid to say go here or here.

  2. yeah stupidity is harmful, but i think what the black americans may be reffering to is maybe the caste system in india where the dalit community (the untouchables) are a definate deeper skin tone than the higher castes like the pale aryan indian brahmins. Of course they are not black but some have complexions that are very close to ours.
