By Art & Chip Sansom We are all Americans, and humans Dear Ann Landers: "A Hip Cat in Virginia" wrote that he was sick and tired of hearing people claim they are "all white," as though it were a badge of honor. I share his views. On my father's side, I am Austrian, German and Swiss. On my mother's side, I am Spanish and Aztec-Mexican. I remember vividly my sixth-grade teacher handing out cards for the class to fill out. The cards had blanks for "nationality" and "race." In that class were white, black, Asian and Hispanic children. Next to "race," the black kids were expected to write "Negro," a word which has since fallen into ill repute. This caused a bit of a stir because it made them feel "different," as one girl explained. I was embarrassed for her when she asked, "Exactly what do they want to know?" As for me, with such a varied background, I didn't know how to respond to the question about "nationality." When I asked, the teacher said, in a very stern voice, "You may all write 'AMERICAN 1 where it says 'nationality,' and 'HUMAN' where it says 'race.'" That teacher taught us a lot that day. When we saluted the flag, it made us feel that it belonged to all of us. Ann Landers Letters to Ann Landers should be mailed to P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, III. 60611-0562 This happened in Los Angeles in the 1930s. The teacher was part Sioux Indian. She was the strictest and by far the best teacher I ever had. I appreciated your response to "Hip Cat." You said, "I would rather concentrate on the similarities of humans instead of their differences," a sentiment that struck just the right chord. Thanks. — No Name, No City, No State Dear No Name, No City, No State: The positive comments about that column were heartening. Teachers from all over the continent wrote to say they were using it as a basis for class discussion. Bravo to them, and my thanks to all who wrote. Dear Ann Landers: I just read the letter from the woman who wanted to extract a promise from her husband that he would not remarry after she died. It reminds me of a story a friend told me. It seems this friend and his wife started talking about the possibility of remarrying should one of them die. The husband said he MIGHT remarry, but that would not mean he loved her any less, because he treasured every day of their life together. Not satisfied, the wife asked, "Would you bring another woman into our home and let her use MY furniture, MY bed, MY linens?" He replied that he could give their things to the needy and start over with a new wife, but he cherished their possessions, and if she were forever lost to him, having those things around would provide precious memories. Still not convinced, the wife asked, "Would you let another woman use the silverware my mother gave me, my jewelry, my golf clubs?" "No, dear," he assured her, "not your golf clubs. She's left-handed." — Coveted in Corvallis, Ore. Dear Oregon: Oh, how people do give themselves away! Thanks for a good laugh. Gem of the Day: Life can be a harsh teacher.
