You blew it on that last sentence, RR, although I was going to try to debate you on the first part. American is a nationality, not a race.

Actually I have never heard anyone make that statement before and am guessing that you are just pulling our leg to keep this insane topic going.

If "Chamorro" is a race, then God damn it, so is "American" !!!
I'm 100% American. Proud. True. Loyal. It IS my heritage and it IS my race.
