    ethnic group, such as "the blacks", "the Asians, or "the Hispanics", you are seriously off on the wrong foot as far as not being insulting to a member of that group. Assuming that ethnic citizens "...do not think of themselves primarily as Americans" is also a tad condescending.

    The discussion basically blames people of color for not being as American as they need to be, in order to avoid taking the country down.
