It's the hot new P.C. guessing game: Can you figure out what the term "Ethnic" American means?

hehehee.. I used your "Back to website" link. thanks.

I also just clicked on your link to find out the meaning. OMG.. That is in my home state. I knew of the controversy going around and how some collegiate student groups are ready to protest the reps who refused the quran.. but didn't think the Ethnic Organization was entirely MUSLIM!?!? OMG. Doesn't ethnic usually mean something close to "native"?? a native who is touch with their cultural heritage?

Guess I was wrong. It means Muslims who are trying to take over another country's culture and laws.

I guess it means Muslims who happen to be American too, but are Muslim first. Kinda like "European-Muslims" and "American-Muslims" - it doesn't mean the same thing as "Muslim-European" and "Muslim-American".

Anyway, it looks like a double flim-flam. They're obfuscating the primacy of the Muslim identity, and trying to get a false status of "ethnicity" involved. Too bad for them neither "Muslim" nor "American" is an ethnicity. Well, I guess American is an ethnicity for Native Americans, but I'm guessing these folks aren't N.A., so it doesn't apply.
