re: #112 HappyWarrior

See what gets me upset is how goddamn clueless white people are about many of our immigrant experiences yet love casting that stone. I see the usual suspects love to rag on Jorge Ramos and Univision(speaking of Ramos, haven’t heard from him in recent months) but ethnic newspapers were a big part of the European immigrant experience as were ethnic fraternal organizations. I even have my Great Grandfather mentioned as being part of a Slovene one in his obituary. And I have another one, a second great grandfather on the German side active in German-American societies. The more honest nativists like Coulter will admit that they’re threatened by these people because they look different. White people need to understand history better.

Both my Swedish-American grandmas had Swedish Bibles and dad’s mom belonged to the Vasa Lodge and sometimes read a Swedish newspaper published in the USA.
