<quoted text>Yet again, you are trying to make nationality and ethnicity mean one and the same thing.
A person born in the USA whose ancestors come from Greece can rightly refer to themselves as a Greek-American.
Greek would indicate their heritage/roots/background while American would indicate the country in which they were born.
Why limit it to just the Greek part of the ancestry?

What about the ancestors ancestors? They don't matter to you?

Just admit it, you hate the term "American"...

<quoted text>I guess you'd have to ask RR, but I don't think so, but he has also claimed that Native Americans are not Native Americans since they had to first come from someplace else as well.....
What I see as the issue on this with RR is his inability to accept that there is a marked difference between nationality and heritage/ethnicity.
Also, he seems to think it makes him a TRULY good American to proclaim that he is nothing other than 100% American.
<shrug>
Then I guess RR consideres himself Ethiopian since that is where the oldest humanoid remains have been found!

Right.... Was IS a "drug" and what is CALLED a "drug" is different.

YOU are the idiot. How one says it doesn't change the fact that when one buys cigarettes they ARE buying a drug.

When one has a headache and takes an aspirin for it, or Tylenol or Aleve or whatever OTC DRUG they might like, they ARE taking a DRUG.

What is WRONG with you???

You think that because we call cigarettes cigarettes that means they are not a drug?

Unless you factor in that the great-great-great grandparents are half from Greece & half from Poland.
Or if you factor in that the Egyptian ancestors are only on the mother's side...
You're being more ridiculous than ever now, RR.

Just let it go. I knew long before today that you aren't capable of grasping or discerning the difference between nationality and heritage/ethnicity.

If someone asks me what I am in terms of nationality, I tell them I am American. If they want to know about my ancestry, I tell them that my heritage is that of Russian, English and Romanian and this despite that on my mother's side, both of her parents were born here.

Not as big a deal as you are making it out to be, RR.

Sorry, bucko. You're wrong.
I never said "cigarettes do't contain a drug".
Don't let your ego get in the way of admitting an error.

You're too much, RR.

I said they contain a drug and you disagreed with me... multiple times.

You use drugs!

Deal with it!

Or don't.

Most of the time you rant & rave about how black are criminals because they're black.
Rememer your "Imagine what Haiti would be like if it was all white?" remark?
You're a racist & a bigot. You have no right to be talking about equality for gays while at the same time denegrating blacks.
Racial differences in crime and violence rates are very real and can be backed up by plenty of data and to deny this makes you the bigot. I don't denigrate blacks if what I am saying is true. I am simply stating facts. If blacks find their own behavior embarrassing then they need to do something about it.

<quoted text>Why???
Because NATIONALITY has one meaning and HERITAGE/ETHNICITY has another meaning, that's why.
Why don't we refer to a circle as a fig tree? Because they are two separate and distinct things, that's why.
Go write your own dictionary, RR.
While the USA does indeed have culture and traditions, that doesn't change the fact that the heritage of the majority of people in the USA is not that of the USA.
So "HERITAGE/ETHNICITY" has one meaning? Dummy.

Are you implying that a person's heritage, ethnicity and nationality HAVE TO BE different?

What about that ole Italian we're talking about? You're acting like his heritage, ethnicity and nationality are ALL Italian...

ummm.... What part of "I believe" doesn't seem to you like I'm speaking for myself?

So?
So, if your belief is founded upon cultural familiarity, it's just as likely you'd be sacrificing to Zeus or praying toward Mecca if you'd been born in a different time or place.

Which begs the question, is believing in something that is probably not true harmless?

Cigarettes contain nicotine.

Nicotine is a drug.

You smoke cigarettes.

You use drugs.

Certainly one would run into trouble prooving there is a god if all you got to go by is the corrupt western ideology about god. In the ancient past aliens were mistaken for (gods) We cannot even measure nor see over half the energy and matter in the universe, hence the name (dark matter and dark energy. If the ranting and raving imbicile that started this post bothered to do ANY research before he clearly showed to all what a moron he is, then he would know things like many scientists despite their own dogmatic narrow view reluctantly agree that there could indeed be a (god) not to mean a christain god or allah or what ever just some form of a creator, like the universal mind stated by Edgar Cayce the sleeping profit. Also the sound theory with many hard facts to back it up is called the holographic universe and in this theory it indicates that there must be something constantly creating. Read the theory moron if you have reading ability more than a dick and Jane level.
