You have nothing to fear..unless you are gullible

Why do some spurious email forwards , press clippings, TV anchors asking leading questions seem to suggest that I feel like I am living in Nazi Germany. Incredibly naive, hard working people are somehow getting caught in this web of propaganda.

Yes I am in immigrant. I came to this country and have not found a better place to live my life. I have served overseas and that actually makes me appreciate America even more. I love these accents and when you get that uncanny ability to laugh at one self, it is actually hilarious. And I know so many of FOB’s that have made it good and continue to thrive, not because of who they are but despite who they are.

And utmost hilarity, if I am stereotyped of running a 7-11 the person next is me is also streotyped of wearing cowboy boots and 50 gallon hats and so is the other person that just cannot get his “B”‘s right. Believe me it is a fun place to be in. No one is advocating racism, bigotry or discrimination against anyone and that my friends is anathema to all of us.

So do not be led by that Pied Piper who came to you from the extreme left or the extreme right. Let sanity and common sense prevail. God Bless America
