'John previously said the Commission would find ways to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, Native American Heritage Month and Black History Month. But city staffers didn't believe they could organize something by the middle of October, when Hispanic Heritage Month ends'.
An American is a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navajo, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as Native Americans. An American may also be English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghani. An American can be Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. An American is also free to believe in no religion.
Community Relations Commission members need to remind Farmington's City Council that Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom.

John, the Commissioner Chairman, continues to show his incompetence side. As a former Navajo Tribal Council Delegate, he continues to misguide the intent of the goals and objectives of the commission. There needs to be a change in Chairmanship. The commission lacks an intellegent leadership and John does not have it at all, period.

What ever happened to "White" Heritage Month (Week?day?....afternoon)? I mean, after all, what did the "white" man (person) ever do that was good? Ergo, let's make sure the Blacks, Browns, Yellows, Off Pinks, light Tan's, etc. get a month here or a month there.

They complain about whites being racist and just think about what this is.
I'm looking forward to "Anglo Heritage Month" so we can see who protests.

Who is "they?" not all hispanics play the race card, just like NOT all whites are as stupid as you are. I bet you're one of those who talks crap about Hispanic heritage, but in the privacy of your house you stuff your fat ass with tasty Hispanic food!!!!!!
