7. The whole irony of this is that the majority of us ARE mixed-heritage,
whether there's an 'illegal' adjective in there currently, or there was in the past.
I WISH I spoke another language, and now that's a bad thing? I'm sad for our country, sad
the differences aren't being embraced but lambasted.
