I think a very large part of

I think a very large part of the problem is the fact that so many individuals are completely consumed with identifying with "groups" that individualism has been lost.

"African-American"? "Mexican-American"? "Asian-American"? "Italian-American"? "Martian-American"? "White"?... "White"? (what does that even mean, anyway?)

Americans live in America, not African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Asian-Americans, etc. Pandering to "groups" instead of individuals is harmful to the mental well-being of people. Group identity should be de-emphasized and removed from public schools, so long as there are public schools, and individual achievement should be emphasized.

I am not a GROUP and neither are YOU.
