Unformatted text preview: Assignment​ ​for​ ​3.06 Go​ ​to​ ​FILE,​ ​select​ ​DOWNLOAD​ ​AS,​ ​then​ ​pick​ ​the​ ​format​ ​you​ ​can​ ​edit.​ ​:-) I​ ​live​ ​every​ ​day​ ​facing​ ​persecution​ ​for​ ​actions​ ​that​ ​I​ ​did​ ​not​ ​commit,​ ​and German Americans feel​ ​threatened​ ​by​ ​others.​ ​Some​ ​like​ ​me​ ​were​ ​lynched​ ​or​ ​publically shamed​ ​for​ ​their​ ​heritage.​ ​Our​ ​property​ ​gets​ ​damaged​ ​and​ ​vandalized daily,​ ​and​ ​we​ ​no​ ​longer​ ​feel​ ​safe.​ ​It​ ​is​ ​not​ ​fair! They​ ​call​ ​us​ ​names,​ ​like​ ​“Huns”​ ​in​ ​order​ ​to​ ​demean​ ​us​ ​and​ ​take​ ​away​ ​our dignity!​ ​They​ ​say​ ​we​ ​terrorize​ ​people,​ ​but​ ​they​ ​are​ ​the​ ​ones​ ​terrorizing​ ​us! We​ ​left​ ​persecution​ ​at​ ​home​ ​and​ ​what​ ​are​ ​we​ ​facing​ ​here?​ ​More Jewish persecution​ ​based​ ​on​ ​our​ ​religion! Americans The​ ​KKK​ ​is​ ​now​ ​adopting​ ​anti-semitic​ ​views​ ​on​ ​top​ ​of​ ​their​ ​racial discrimination.​ ​Will​ ​we​ ​ever​ ​be​ ​safe? The​ ​only​ ​way​ ​for​ ​some​ ​of​ ​us​ ​to​ ​become​ ​naturalized​ ​citizens​ ​is​ ​if​ ​we​ ​join​ ​the Asian armed​ ​forces.​ ​This​ ​is​ ​not​ ​the​ ​land​ ​of​ ​the​ ​free! Americans We​ ​have​ ​wars​ ​to​ ​fight​ ​overseas,​ ​battles​ ​to​ ​fight​ ​elsewhere,​ ​yet​ ​everyone seems​ ​to​ ​be​ ​fighting​ ​us​ ​as​ ​a​ ​people!​ ​How​ ​will​ ​we​ ​ever​ ​be​ ​united​ ​unless they​ ​truly​ ​accept​ ​us​ ​as​ ​citizens? Treatment​ ​here​ ​is​ ​not​ ​as​ ​bad​ ​as​ ​some​ ​make​ ​it​ ​out​ ​to​ ​be.​ ​It​ ​could​ ​always​ ​be Hispanic Americans worse.​ ​There​ ​are​ ​opportunities​ ​here​ ​that​ ​I​ ​would​ ​not​ ​have​ ​elsewhere.​ ​I must​ ​be​ ​thankful​ ​for​ ​this​ ​opportunity. Unless​ ​we​ ​are​ ​drafted​ ​into​ ​the​ ​war,​ ​we​ ​are​ ​not​ ​allowed​ ​into​ ​the​ ​armed forces.​ ​If​ ​we​ ​are​ ​drafted,​ ​we​ ​do​ ​not​ ​protect​ ​on​ ​our​ ​homeland,​ ​instead​ ​we are​ ​sent​ ​to​ ​the​ ​Panama​ ​Canal​ ​or​ ​Europe.​ ​Why​ ​is​ ​this​ ​happening? I​ ​still​ ​do​ ​not​ ​have​ ​a​ ​say​ ​in​ ​the​ ​government​ ​that​ ​we​ ​elect,​ ​but​ ​somehow​ ​I​ ​am Women still​ ​allowed​ ​to​ ​fight​ ​for​ ​my​ ​country.​ ​How​ ​is​ ​this​ ​fair? We​ ​have​ ​gained​ ​factory​ ​jobs,​ ​opportunities​ ​to​ ​fight​ ​in​ ​wars,​ ​and​ ​have​ ​much to​ ​do​ ​with​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​country’s​ ​wellbeing,​ ​so​ ​why​ ​are​ ​we​ ​still​ ​treated​ ​as lesser? Am​ ​I​ ​a​ ​traitor?​ ​No.​ ​Do​ ​I​ ​want​ ​our​ ​country​ ​to​ ​be​ ​taken​ ​over?​ ​No.​ ​Do​ ​I​ ​believe Dissenters in​ ​fighting​ ​for​ ​what​ ​is​ ​right?​ ​Yes.​ ​But​ ​do​ ​I​ ​think​ ​our​ ​government​ ​should restrict​ ​themselves​ ​from​ ​joining​ ​in​ ​a​ ​war?​ ​Yes. The​ ​Constitution​ ​even​ ​says​ ​that​ ​we​ ​have​ ​a​ ​right​ ​to​ ​dislike​ ​the​ ​government practices. ​It​ ​is​ ​not​ ​treason​ ​to​ ​disapprove​ ​of​ ​the​ ​way​ ​your​ ​country​ ​is​ ​going about​ ​things! ...
