I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America.

I am sick of "Political Correctness." I know a lot of black people, and not a single one of them was born in <st1:place w:st="on">Africa</st1:place>; so how can they be "African-Americans"?

I was asked to send this on if I agree or delete if I don't. It is said that 86% of Americans believe in God. Therefore I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a problem in having "In God We Trust" on our money and having "God" in the Pledge of Allegiance. Why don't we just tell the 14% to Shut Up and BE QUIET!!!

*sigh*

It's a myth. He never said it, and has threatened to sue the person
who attributed it to him.

http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/rooney4.asp

As a general rule, anything someone sends you in a chain letter, go to
www.snopes.com and check out. 99.999% of this stuff tends to be crap,
and you'll save yourself quite a bit of credibility with a two minute
Google search.

Furthermore, didn't we have a discussion just a couple weekes ago
about keeping this list apolitical? If Andy Rooney sends you a letter
about Amphicars, I'm all ears.
