True, I cannot choose that I was born from European stock. If I had a choice I never would have ma ...

No one can control or dictate what someone else feels towards something, often we cannot even control our own feelings. I understand your feelings in this issue. They are understandable, rational and consistent with your outlook to life and the values you proclaim. I guess you would feel that way towards any people you think have done the same kind of things. By the same measure, I can understand you being proud of the really good things that Europeans have done or achieved, if you feel so.
While I place a lot of importance to being honest and consistent in applying the same standards of judgement, I also place a lot of importance on personal actions that we are individually accountable for - including expressing our views or support for the unethical actions of our leaders or 'elected' leaders or our ancestors. In your personal capacity, I have seen nothing of that sort, but only consistency. I reckon many of those that cannot accept you on this forum would have accepted you better with your stated views, if you were actually a non-European origin USAnian. If you were anything but that, they would 'hate' you less for being 'one among them'. On the flip-side, I reckon that some would accept me better with a lot of my views or 'attitudes' if they thought I was of European origin or pro-Western!

Wish you well, mate!
My friend the Black Swan

After Charlie Hepdo, one would think France would be more vigilant.

This is possibly the 2nd or 3rd deadliest terror attack.

One can draw a reasonable conclusion that there are multiple terror cells in France.

Where do they get the automatic assault guns?  You can make DIY home-made bombs but not hone-made AK47.
Let the dice fly high
