Thanks, Christine!

I'm lucky, too--it's so rewarding to walk out of the classroom with so much to think about.

I'm in US History this semester (the second half) and a recurrent theme is that we have a history of blaming everything on them and those people, even though the target of those feelings/thoughts has gone from the British to the African Americans to the European immigrants to the Hispanic immigrants. As a nation, we feel compelled to blame someone (for the cyclical issues that have been a problem as long as we have been a nation), and the newcomers are the ones to get it. Not fair, not right, but a bad habit in our nation nonetheless. I only hope that there are more of us out there that don't fall into these thought traps than do.

Very true--I think there's definitely an historical trend--a mentality embedded in our society.
