WASHINGTON — It was just after President Trump had finished railing in the Oval Office against African immigrants he said came from “shithole countries” when a senior Republican senator, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who was there to negotiate a deal on immigration, spoke up.
“America is an idea, not a race,” Mr. Graham said, according to three people familiar with the exchange on Thursday. Diversity was a strength, he said, not a weakness. And by the way, the senator added, he himself was a descendant of immigrants who came to the United States from “shithole countries with no skills.”
Anyway, I looked up the surname Graham on Wikipedia:
Graham is an English and Scottish surname. It is a habitational name, derived from Grantham in Lincolnshire, England. The Scottish Grahams traditionally claimed descent from a chief called Grame, but the first authentic bearer of the name was William of Graham in the 12th century.
Wasn’t there a book in the 1990s by a Harvard professor called How the Lincolnshireites Became White?
The biggest towns of Lincolnshire are Lincoln, Grimsby, Scunthorpe, Grantham, and Boston. Is there a more discriminated-against group in American history than immigrants from Boston, Lincolnshire, England?
If you Google “American inventors” you get:
So I’d say the odds are that Alexander Graham Bell was black, just like Lindsey. Just look at his picture on Google.
