    Wouldn't take it too literally. The interpretation of this list requires a few caveats. As does most info from these sorts of tests.

    Yeah I mostly agree with this sentiment.

    Being on this forum, for me at least, creates this interesting illusion that we’re a legitimate community that’s together in a real fight that we can and...

    American anti-discrimination laws are such that this isn't a novel statement and if you pressed any employer they, if they were bound to the truth, would admit that it is indeed much easier to fire...

    This whole frenzy has been so bizarre. I'm trying to think of how we've somehow decided this is the most pressing issue of our times, the murder of one man. (I think there is something to be said...

    Was using sarcasm to show how absurd I think that particular belief is. (Can't believe I have to explain that one. And yet you accused another poster of acting autistic.)

    Questions for the conspiracy crowd:
    1. Do you believe that a pandemic is a possible thing?
    2. If so, do you believe that there is threshold of severity...

    These antibody tests aren't perfect. What they show is whether someone has antibodies in their blood that bind the virus. It doesn't mean they were necessarily formed in response to infection form...

    Hardly exaggerating when I say that they all think this way, that the country has some giant conspiracy to keep them down. In some respect I can't blame them given what their role started out as...

    You shouldn't underestimate the contribution of the initial colonists to the current ancestral makeup of the country, though. It's not like they settled on the East coast and just stayed there for...

    Yeah, I think the test is too American-centric to give useful results to Europeans. A more rigorous questionnaire would probably reveal some slight similarities between German and Midwestern...

    Most people I know would outwardly, if pressed, say that increasing diversity is a good thing. A good portion of these people would secretly feel otherwise, but still I'd guess most would really...

    It's not a claim, it's a fact. Again, my point was that despite its being true, it says nothing about the significance of that 0.1%. Yes, it's an annoying statement used by race deniers to...

    My opinion hasn't changed much from my first post in this thread (that is, that hyphenated Americanism is, for the most part, invalid). But there is a caveat I'd like to add.
