A Proud Indian!

A first grade teacher  explains to her class that she is an American.
 
She asks her students  to raise their hands if they were American too.
 
Not really knowing why  but wanting to be like their teacher, their hands explode into the air like  flashy fireworks.
 
There is, however, one  exception.
 
A girl named Gita has not gone along with the crowd.  

 
The teacher asks her  why she has decided to be different.
 
"Because I am not an  American." replied Gita.
 
"Then", asks the  teacher, "What are you?"  
 
"I'm a proud Indian,"  boasts the little girl.
 
The teacher is a  little perturbed now, her face slightly red.  She asks Gita
 
why she is an Indian.  
 
"Well", my mom and dad  are Indians, "so I'm an Indian too."
 
The teacher is now  angry. "That's no reason", she says loudly "if your mom
 
was an idiot, and your  dad was an idiot, what would you be then?"
 
A pause,and a smile.
 
"Then..." says Gita,
 
"I'd be an American."
