Coachmo, I assumed you thought the person on the phone was Arab based on the things you posted in #9 and #11. I asked you how do you tell the difference? I was fact finding. Again as to group contributions I'm against recognizing any group of people for the great things that have made this country, but one group- Americans. Once some one leaves another country for this country they are either here to make this country great because they want to be an American or they come here trying to transform this country into the country they left behind, which would make them un- American. I do not care about their past residents, now they need to feel American in order to behave American. Drop the label before American and just be American.
