What does it mean to be an American?
Who were we or what were we
Then who will we choose to be
Some people define who they are by what they says is race, some search out what they call an ethic quality, other claim traditions, some they call on heritage. But race, ethnic, traditions and heritage are but words that tell only a small part of where a people came from, what they are made of, and where they have chosen then to go.
America is not a single color, it’s not one ethnic group, and it encompasses many traditions, from many, many places. And that is our heritage for without one the whole would be diminished and the greatness of the Nation would be lost. But there are many in this new age; who seek division and demand there be now separation, so the nation becomes nations and a house it is divided.
But I say this to all who care

Color is not an option ask the blind man not the fool. The blind man sees what’s inside, the fool he looks with blind eyes and judges before he knows. Better to be blind than an
all-knowing bigot who sees but does not see.
