I can kind of get my head around someone who has been treated with outright prejudice all their life, based solely on the colour of their skin, taking a perverse pride in their colour as a reaction to that. So, I totally get the whole 'black is beautiful' sentiment as a part of the civil rights movement: after all, that was a response to vicious, legally sanctioned racism (Jim Crow). But pride in being white? What are you kicking against?
People telling you that you should feel bad about something someone else did. They need to shut-up and leave everyone alone.

Yeah, but 17 in New York. Some uniformity would be nice.

perhaps my least popular opinion (if we're talking even remotely about something that might actually come to pass) is that, IF we're going to have the death penalty and claim that it's a deterrent to violent crime... then the executions ought to be done in public, and not in any particularly 'humane' way, not torture mind you, but something painful, quick and gruesome. ie. guillotine, hanging, firing squad etc.

I'm for that. It's probably more popular than you think.

We are the bad guys in Iraq & Iraqi insurgents are doing exactly what we would be doing in their place (not those coming into the country just to kill US soldiers and Iraqi police). We illegally invaded a nation that was no threat to us and are occupying a sovereign nation without cause and are plotting to steal their natural resources, the actual reason we invaded them to begin with, the only reason we invaded them.

The US already has one of the most liberal immigration systems in the world (not my opinion, fact), most nations are far more difficult to become citizens of, if at all.
IMO, we should have and should currently be strictly enforcing our immigration law and should, in NO WAY feel bad about that because there is NOTHING racist about it. Most of the nations and the main nation that bitches about our immigration laws are FAR more strict than we have EVER been about own own border and immigration policies and need to just shut-up until they practice what they preach.

I can vouch for this. I've looked into expatriating extensively. Even if you have a good bit of money in the bank, woah nelly!
