Jindal: Racism persists because minorities cling to their heritage | The Raw Story

Jindal accused minorities of placing “far too much emphasis on our ‘separateness,’ our heritage, ethnic background, skin color, etc. We live in the age of hyphenated Americans: Asian-Americans, Italian-Americans, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, Indian-Americans, and Native Americans, to name just a few.”

Community Village‘s insight:

Racism persists because of xenophobic racists.

 

In Jindal’s list of hyphenated Americans he forgot to mention European-Americans.

 

Jindal also listed Native Americans in his list of hyphenated Americans. The term “Native American” is not hyphenated.

 

There are four types of Americans:

1. First Nations Indigenous Amerindians
2. Colonizer-Americans
3. Immigrant-Americans
4. Migrant-Americans

    This is true because there are people who are afraid of losing their race, or heritage, whatever and want to keep it intact, especially by suggesting their children date and marry within their race rather than date other races which some believe will lead to premarital sex and out-of-wedlock mixed children.

    Jindal’s self-serving remarks could have been said by any prominent Republican these days. They must pander to their rabidly extremist base, especially on racial matters, or risk losing political support. The fascist-like Tea Party coercion of the GOP has been so profound that few current office holders and candidates dare stray – even rhetorically – from the narrowing ideology of modern conservatism.
