Practice, practice, practice. :D Practice speaking English especially; it'll help you more than just writing it. Try listening to English songs or watching English movies.

Sive Originally Answered: Your teacher as told the class "Those Born with blue eyes are Good and Smart-those born with?
The first thing your question brought to mind is the famous PBS Frontline show, A Class Divided, in which a class of 3rd graders were divided according to their eye color and taught - on Day One - that blue-eyed people are better than brown-eyed people. Almost instantly, the teacher’s pronouncements had a profound effect on the brown-eyed children’s self-esteem. My second association was a book I read in 1972 that in many ways saved my life: Stigma: Notes on the Management of Spoiled Identity by Erving Goffman. Here’s Amazon’s book description: Stigma is an illuminating excursion into the situation of persons who are unable to conform to standards that society calls normal. Disqualified from full social acceptance, they are stigmatized individuals. Physically deformed people, ex-mental patients, drug addicts, prostitutes, or those ostracized for other reasons must constantly strive to adjust to their precarious social identities. Their image of themselves must daily confront and be affronted by the image which others reflect back to them. Drawing extensively on autobiographies and case studies, sociologist Erving Goffman analyzes the stigmatized person’s feelings about himself and his relationship to "normals." He explores the variety of strategies stigmatized individuals employ to deal with the rejection of others, and the complex sorts of information about themselves they project. In Stigma the interplay of alternatives the stigmatized individual must face every day is brilliantly examined by one of America’s leading social analysts. Reading Stigma during my junior year of college, when I was hit hard by the attitudinal barriers I faced as a person with a disability, gave a name and a legitimacy to the pain I felt. The book’s autobiographical excerpts made me realize two things: I was not alone, and society, not I, was maladjusted. That’s how Stigma saved my life.

Id simply point out that it is rather interesting that the teacher has blue eyes, while I do not. Its much like religion: ever notice how those that want to tell you how you should live your life are the worst at knowing how to live their own lives (Larry Craig, Ted Haggard, Jim Baker, etc.)?? In this case, the teachers position is self serving. Unfortunately, Ive found self-serving attitudes in all walks of real life... And, by virtue of this response, Ive just proven that this brown eyed guy certainly isnt bad or dumb, so Ive proven her wrong as well. :)

Many teachers have used this or similar object lessons to describe what happens with racial discrimination, or even during the Holocaust. Classes can be divided according to eye color or hair color or height or even sex and one group given privileges and the other not. Then the resentment the 'have nots' feel is discussed. I hope the teacher in this case carried through with the lesson and did not leave it the way you stated!

I'm from Winnipeg, and moved to Vancouver in my high school years. One of the first things that struck me was how many Chinese people there were. There were a lot of Indians and Persians too, mind you. Winnipeg is changing now, but it's been pretty white bread for years. Anyway, second thing I noticed was how all the races kept to themselves. Nobody hated each other, but Chinese hung out with Chinese, Indians hung out with Indians, and so on. What I'd suggest is trying to find some "white" friends, or maybe Chinese/Indian/Persian/Whatever friends that spend most of their time speaking English. You only get good at a language if you immerse yourself in it. I'm trying to learn mandarin and have tried to learn cantonese in the past, but it's been hard because living where I live, in Victoria, everybody speaks english. I hope this helps, English is hard, but so is any language if you don't practice it enough. I went to Highschool like 12 years ago, so I'm not sure how similar things would be in today's Canadian school system.

Phyliss Originally Answered: Can "natural born" be born of a woman?
That has been my point all along. Their is nothing in the US Constitution saying you must be born in a state. In fact hundreds of thousands of Americans were NOT born in a state. "Natural born" is when an American citizen gives birth to a child. That child is American where ever they are born. McCain was born in Panama. Many citizens of Texas, which was stolen from Mexico, are descendants of Americans who were illegals in Mexico! Almost all of the West was not part of the United States in 1776! Much of it had not even been explored! "Through birth abroad to two United States citizens See also: jus sanguinis In most cases, one is a U.S. citizen if both of the following are true: 1.Both parents were U.S. citizens at the time of the child's birth 2.At least one parent lived in the United States prior to the child's birth. INA 301(c) and INA 301(a)(3) state, "and one of whom has had a residence." The FAM (Foreign Affairs Manual) states "no amount of time specified." A person's record of birth abroad, if registered with a U.S. consulate or embassy, is proof of his or her citizenship. He or she may also apply for a passport or a Certificate of Citizenship to have his or her citizenship recognized." wiki

I believe this states it quite clearly that's if you believe in the Constitution and Supreme Court rulings. http://www.theobamafile.com/NaturalBornChart.htm It's only a chart, no spin.
