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
