Let’s Take a Lesson From the Jewish People

Puerto Rican Pride Week is over and I couldn’t be happier.  If you know me, you know that I hold equal disdain for St. Patrick’s Day, Kwanza, Oktoberfest, Columbus Day and any other day that celebrates taking too much pride in someone’s heritage.

How can you be proud of something that was merely an accident of birth? What did YOU do to take such credit? So you swum faster than the million other spermkickers to pierce the floating egg.  So what? All the contestants came from the same place.  So Juan, if you petered out, Jose would have grabbed the golden ring and the result would STILL be Maria.  Is that something of  which you can be proud?

When it comes to ethnic pride, I think we can all learn something from the real Kosher Kickers, the Jews.  There is no American “Hebrew Day” when all the descendents of Moses parade through the streets waving lit menorahs, flags of Israel, and dancing the Horah behind a float of Barbara Streisand impersonators. The Jews are proud of Israel (as they should be) but first they are AMERICANS and why cause trouble by shoving Yiddish down goyim throats? And anyway, that would be bad for business since capitalism is the 2nd true foundation (after Freedom) of the United States.

Remember when America was the “melting pot” of the world?  When all cultures could take pride in their heritage after first pledging allegiance to THIS country and LEARNING ENGLISH (like all four of my grandparents had to learn BEFORE going to school here?) They knew that LANGUAGE is the glue that cements together different cultures.

It’s time once again to focus on what brings America together – rather than concentrate on the ethnic differences that keep us apart.
