Our Fractured Melting Pot

This country was built with immigrants and became a melting pot of various cultures and individuals from around the world united in the common cause of finding opportunity in a land of freedom. Today, that melting pot is fractured and the resulting pieces are demanding special treatment that is often more than just a level playing field. Assimilation is long gone and our political correctness seems to be catering to demands to be treated as “special”. How large must a group become before it can no longer be “special”? How many “special” pieces can we break into before we no longer have a coherent society?

From The Hill

The Commerce Department is considering naming Arab Americans a socially and economically disadvantaged minority group that is eligible for special business assistance…The ADC (American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee) petition cited “discrimination and prejudice in American society[,] resulting in conditions under which Arab-American individuals have been unable to compete in a business world.”

The ADC wants any “American who traces his or her ethnic roots to one of the countries in the Arab World…to be eligible for MBDA (Minority Business Development Agency) services…MBDA services are now offered to African-Americans, Puerto Ricans, Spanish-speaking Americans, American Indians, Eskimos, Aleuts, Hasidic Jews, Asian-Pacific Americans and Asian Indians.

    Sadly this statement bears far too much truth. I was writing about this today, sort of. I was writing about elected officials who fill our legislation and how many of them we see on TV spending our tax dollars fighting for the rights of people who steal themselves into this country and like a tick feed on our economy. People elected to server the people of this country putting trespassers from Mexico ahead of American Born Citizens.
