"A hyphenated American is not an American at all."
-Former President Theodore Roosevelt
"The hyphenation of your nationality
minimizes your standing in the
nation. The hyphen might as well act
as a minus sign. Both are represented
by the same symbol, and have the
same consequences. Just as a minus
“takes away” a numerical value, its
counterpart hyphen lessens the value
of your nationality."
-Nicole Draffen, Hyphened‐Nation
