OK, This has been stewing on my mind for some time now and I'm just about fed up with it.
The world that we currently live in today is so whipped into submission by this political correctness. We as Americans have to be tolerant of all races and religions and creeds, and I'm fine with that. After all we do live in a melting pot so to speak. BUT..... Why is it that we have several different ethnic groups that can cram their heritage right down our throats every day, but if I make any attempt to be proud about my race, I'm automatically labeled a racist klan skinhead hate monger??? (I MOST CERTAINLY AM NOT ADVOCATING THE SMALL MINDED IDIOCY OF THE WHITE SUPREMEST GROUPS AND PERSONALLY THINK THEY ARE DUMB ###### THAT NEED TO SHUT UP AND EDUCATE THEMSELVES)
I am proud of my heritage. My ancestors hail from Scotland and Ireland. I shave my head because my chosen profession dictates that I keep a clean and neat appearance, and it's really easy to take care of. Generations of my family long before me had slaves, I had nothing to do with it and have never owned a slave in my life, nor do I think that people should. It is a part of history and we should learn from that and move on... and Honestly lets face it, What the English did to the Africans, Mexicans, and Native Americans was from years of practice screwing over the Scots!!!
So, in closing this rant, I hope that I have made it perfectly clear that this is NOT a racist thing it's an equal opportunity thing if you will. If this has offended anyone reading it I do not apologize as this is how I feel on the subject and the last time I checked I still have the right of free speech.
I actually feel somewhat better now.
