This kind of Balkanization by the multicultural movement is extremely destructive. If you want to see someone who makes sense, google on the video about an asinine NBC reporter who sticks a microphone in the face of a black man at a Tea Party rally and asks him if he is uncomfortable. The man looks at the reporter like she's crazy and says, "No, not at all. These are my people. Americans"

So we are not Latinos or Asians or Muslims, we are AMERICANS and these events should honor all students who achieve academic excellence

Congratulations to all of these students, many of whom certainly overcame challenges and difficulties that most of us couldnt imagine
