And yet, I would never call myself a Euro-American. I am a U.S. citizen. I was born in America. I am an American.

If my heritage was of Mexico, I would not wish to call myself a Mexican-American.

If my heritage was of Africa, I would not wish to call myself an Afro-American.

Etc, etc ....

Immigrants who wish to assimilate to American culture and who wish become loyal Americans and who come here legally are welcome as far as I'm concerned.

When you say your heritage was 'Dutch American, was your dad Dutch, or was he born in the USA?
