United we stand — divided we fall | Letter

I can’t really believe that there are people that believe if you are not white you are inferior, living in the United States of America.

I can’t believe that if you are not white you should not be able to live in the United States of America.

I can’t believe that if you do not speak English you shouldn’t be able to live in the United States of America.

Remember, throughout history, we have had Americans that never learned English!

Let’s be realistic — we do not speak English. We speak “American.”

Remember, that the western hemisphere was invaded by white people that didn’t speak English!

Remember, there were people living here before the invasion. There were many different people across the western hemisphere living here and speaking their own languages and not any European languages.

What would happen if all the native people got together and decided that everyone living here would have to leave the hemispere or accept their languages customs and traditions?

Remember, this hemisphere was named for a person that spoke a European language and not American!

Those people should find a deserted island and start their own country and not destroy ours.

Remember, these people that want everyone to be white and speak English, their fearless leader never spoke English or American. Also, their fearless leader was a coward and committed suicide rather than being a man and face his accusers.

United we stand — divided we fall.
