4) Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and Joe Biden have all referred to the USA as a “Nation of immigrants”. Justin Trudeau has also called Canada a “Nation of Immigrants”. How do you think Indigenous Peoples and First Nations feel about this view?
5) A genie forces you to live in a foreign country for the rest of your life. You will magically receive citizenship and speak the local language fluently. You are allowed to select five countries to live in, from which the genie will randomly choose one. Which five countries do you choose? Do you think that a Republican, a Neo-Nazi, or member of the alt-right would choose a similar list of countries?

Black people were as obese as white people in the 1950s, which is to say it was a very low percentage.
