Mensagem:  Hello you all, I've noticed that when you some of you refer to Americans, you tend to say "Anglos" as opposed to just AMERICANS. I just thought this was a bit belittling to Americans who are not of Anglo descent but nonetheless American by every sense of the word, such as African-Americans, Native-Americans, Asian-Americans, Brazilian-American, et cetera. All in all, I just wish that when you refer to "Americans" you be more inclusive. for The UNITED STATES is indeed a microcosm. It belongs to all the above-mentioned groups, not just the Anglos. -Miguel Vieira
