New Orleans, LA (The Adobo Chronicles) – Louisiana Republican Governor Bobby Jindal, the first Indian-American governor, has the perfect solution to stop racism in America.
Last week, Jindal claimed that racism wouldn’t exist if minorities would just forget about who they are and start acting more like white people. In an op-ed piece published by Politico, Jindal declared that minorities are responsible for the racism in this country:
“We still place far too much emphasis on our ‘separateness,’ our heritage, ethnic background, skin color, etc. We live in the age of hyphenated Americans: Asian-Americans, Italian-Americans, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, Indian-Americans, and Native Americans, to name just a few. Here’s an idea: How about just ‘Americans?’ That has a nice ring to it, if you ask me.”
Asked by The Adobo Chronicles if he had a specific solution to the problem of racism in America, Jindal said, “Yes! Hyphenated Americans should start calling themselves American-Asians, American-Italians, American-Africans, American-Mexicans, etc.”
“We are all Americans first and minorities second.” he added.
Jindal, 43, is reportedly considering to run for president in 2016. If elected, he will be the first White Minority president of the United States.
