So, what does "American No Hyphen Necessary!" mean. It's simple really, if you were born in the USA, you're an AMERICAN! You can be proud of your family heritage and their culture, but you're an AMERICAN first. Many of us are from multicultural backgrounds. Take me as an example, my ancestors were from England, Ireland, Scotland and Germany, but I'm a ninth generation American and I'm not going to hyphenate my nationality. A lot of Americans are improperly hyphenating and it's time to stop the separation. Are you AMERICAN, or not?
