Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) on how to solve all our problems:
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.
Here’s an idea: How about just “Americans?” That has a nice ring to it, if you ask me. Placing undue emphasis on our “separateness” is a step backward. Bring back the melting pot.
Most of the people who have a problem with other people being hyphenated are the ones who emphasize their own racial superiority by demanding their country back and wanting to see the birth certificate of the first African-American president. Start with them, Governor.
PS: Gov. Jindal really needs to have a chat with Gen. Colin Powell.
