This thread reeks of leftist handwringing. As Ed Norton would say: "Shuh-eeeeeeeeeeeeesh!"
And I'd like to gratuitously add that I live about 40 miles southwest of his birthplace.
I thought she was from Brazil. Or is that just where she was teaching at the beginning of Broken Bow?

I'm hoping in the end, they find out the Xindi are not so bad. Afterall, they were only ... in a sense ... defending themselves against a future attack. Just like the U.S. claimed to do when we went to Iraq. Oh -- then it turned out to be about oil and that we didn't like Saddam.
I'm also hoping they paint a negative picture of the Ashcrofts of the world, and point out racism we've developed because of 9/11. The U.S. seems prejudiced against Middle Easterners, even those who were born and raised in the U.S. How sad.
Better that than rightist neckwringing by leftists who then wring their hands about how un-leftist they just were.

Why are you bumping a year old thread when we have plenty of new threads kicking around?
