dudeman, stop trying to be clever with your "the only true americans are native, thus every white person is pretty much illegal." statement. while it contains elements of truth, its not necessarily correct. the north america we have today reflects the north america that the europeans created, unwelcome as they may have been. that to me, justifies the country "belonging" (for lack of a better word) to the europeans that came over, even if they did take it forcefully and brutally. if they did not, do you think it would even be called "america?" of course not. then, you would be correct and whites/europeans would be considered illegal.
To be fair it's not really a smart or clever statement at all. A large portion of white americans came here long after the nation was established. So basically a large portion of white people were wanted (by either families, communities, companies, etc.) and didn't come here forcefully or "illegally" in any sense.
To be fair, this all started when I ask the kid his age...
Now has anyone stopped to think, God forbid, that the boy is missing his mother, a sick sister, or something ???? That he just loggs in here to get his head off things, that he truly doesnt know better..?
People are just born with all the posting rules, and yes he should have read them, but lets face it, I have 1000+ posts and I havent yet..
Take it easy with the kid, as you can read, hes pretty young, and has to be new to these things...
@ Mint, he did give you the correct answer.. Usa, is the proper term, as America would be reffering to any country from Canada to Argentina
@ Nick, take it effing easy, we where all in his shoes, he is learning about this stuff, be insulting him you dont sound any % more cooler.. Above all relax, mistakes = human..
