    *****

    An Asian man, his wife, and daughter were walking in a suburb of Los Angeles.

    A woman came up and told them, "Go back to your home country."

    The man explained that he and his wife were born in the States.

    The couple started to record the incident. (The Facebook video has had more than 440,000 views so far.)

    The woman has been identified as a college professor.

    She has told a local TV station the following: "If you would like to have a full normal interview about the displacement of European Americans , then I gladly am available to enlighten the public."

    She is right.

    Unfortunately she is in the wrong state to make a difference now.

    Unless you are 100% Native American, the same could be said to you.

    Technically true. I mean they did exactly jack squat with it for...10,000 years? However, true.

    So unless you develop it, it is not ours? lmao

    They lived on it and off of it for 10,000 years. But, since they came over from another continent, I guess the "Go back to your home country" could apply to anyone here.

    Didn't say that. I said that it was theirs....but we made it a nation. Any people can sit on a patch of land living via subsistence. A people produce greatness.

    Sure does...and it would devolve back into an agrarian culture.

    Without going that far, the woman in the OP story apparently doesn't like the fact that Asians live in our country. The whole "go back to your country" is bullshit. And I merely remarked that unless you are a Native American, the same could be said to you. It is not about greatness. It is about where your "home country" is located.

    No. Being born in America makes a person a native American. All so called "Native Americans" living today were born into a predominately white America. Not a matter of race; but a place of birth.
