Dumb Political Quotes


quote:


''His mom lived in Long Island for ten years or so. God rest her soul. And- although, she's- wait- your mom's still- your mom's still alive. Your dad passed. God bless her soul.''

Who said it and when — Joe Biden, on the mother of Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen, who is very much alive, Washington, D.C., March 17, 2010
quote:


''African-American is a bogus, PC, made-up term. I mean, that's not a race. Your ancestry is from Africa and now you live in America.''

Who said it and when — Glenn Beck, on his radio show, Jan. 7, 2010

Re: Dumb Political Quotes


Those are bad. emoticon

What I think is stupid about the term "African-American" is:

1) Every human has ancestors who lived in Africa.

2) Many "people of color" haven't had ancestors in Africa for a very long time.

Re: Dumb Political Quotes


I think African-American sounds more like half black, half native.

But isn't "Caucasian" even sillier? An origin for racial group(s) what, 20000 years ago.
Armenians, Azeris, Georgians etc. are the only real Caucasians and some of those you'd barely call white.

Re: Dumb Political Quotes


You'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who is completely one "race" or another. I'm supposedly 1/8 Native American, but you could never tell by looking at me.

Your high cheek bones in the face indicate you have "native american" blood in your veins. That was what my grandma used to tell me when I was a kid anyway. emoticon

Re: Dumb Political Quotes


You know, we're beginning to achieve a world where it has become a positive thing for one to to be able to point having bit of exotic blood emoticon

Best I can do is 1/4 Karelian.
And that's arguable as the name is used of Russians living modernly in Karelia region, Finns near southeastern border, pre-WWII Finnish residents of Karelia (my late granma) and the actual ethnic group.

It seems to me that mixing up the gene pool would be good for the human race both biologically and culturally. emoticon

Queeny, I want to see those black feet of yours. emoticon
