To all Genweb users, This was a recent post from Julie Akins from the "Clan Akins society" (or should I say Klan?) beware this woman
For 800 years the English people have sought to conquer, dominate, oppress and persecute the Scottish people and have made every attempt to obliterate their native culture, language and traditions. There are very few people of Scottish descent who do not have resentment toward the English. Even today, Scotland is still ruled by England's Queen, though recently the Scots have been allowed to form their own separate Parliament, which is a mere token gesture after centuries of cultural persecution. Unless you know the history of your ancestors and take pride in your ethnic heritage, you cannot understand the feelings of those who do. Bur for those who know who they are and where they come from, then the feelings that they have about their heritage and those who have sought to deny us its legacy, these feelings are deeply entrenched in our very being. You may live together with Rodney King if you like, but most of us who are proud of our history, culture and heritage would prefer to live with our own.
