Don’t Be Un-American

I’m posting this since I’m becoming increasingly concerned about the growing negative attitude toward immigrants. Unless you are a native American, everyone else is an immigrant (though it could be argued that, since Columbus ‘discovered’ America, we were conquerors). Be nice, kids and adults.

  1. This negative attitude is, unfortunately, spreading around the world (including here in Australia). Popularist politicians base their campaigns around public fears. News outlets cherry-pick their stories to align with the “lazy gangs and dangerous religions” narrative. People in countries like America and Australia forget that it was only a few generations ago that we were the newcomers… that newcomers create wealth, opportunities and bring new tastes in food, fashion and entertainment.

    The shallow seas of bigotry have far too many drowning in its waters. The propaganda machine crushes reality. There is but one human race. Just one.
