funny

how a post about racism attracts the likes of temico.  what is his point?  that racism is bad?  that all other people besides chinese (not including hanjian) are racist?  is that why he denigrates pakistanis?

tell me, temico, what do you know about the native culture of twan?  do you think what happened on island several hundred years ago is similar to what happened to the natives in america's west?  you see, two can play the blame game.

it seems to me people like temico only serve to perpetuate racism (answer racism with racism), not address it constructively.

answer to temico

What do I actually mean by "native English speaker???"

I mean someone who's native language, who's first language, who's mother tongue, is English.

Interesting that your OED defines English as the native language of English only.  My Merriam-Webster's defines English as "the language of England, the U.S., and many areas now or formerly under British rule"

You also wrote:
"Any person whose ancestors did not ORIGINATE from England or who were not born or brought up in England from an early age CANNOT claim to be a "native English-speaker"."

Sorry, I totaly disagree with that.  To my knowledge, none of my ancestors came from England, but English is my native language.

D.H.

according to many anthropology authors

racism generates from jealousy. Jealousy of something that the other has and we want to poses, and so we turn it to a sort of paranoia.

In the case of Hitler and the nazis, it was the will of possesing the power the jews had; especially in the economic field.

What I don't understand then is what were the whites jealous about the blacks, chinese, indians etc... I think simply they feared their power would be taken away and so started a "war" against anything which was not the same and so racism was born. Then this pattern has been transfered to the other cultures.

Congratulations HeDan, you have a supporter!

My dog, Yankee, is a TRUE American, born and bred in America and it totally agrees with you! Its ancestors were also neither from England but were ABDUCTED African dogs forcefully shipped off in "cages" to America. Its first language is BARKING, termed "English" by the Americans, and is considered NATIVE to America displacing all the languages of the Native American "prairie dogs"!!
BTW, are you both, in any way, RELATED??
