The hell are you on? Im a white male with a university degree, Guess what, I do manual labour, believe me, not out of choice. Stop pretending like this is some kind of ethnocentric country, The economy sucks, thats the only real fact about the situation.
Youre surprised that generations old people who are established here Have it better than immigrants? Im an immigrant, i go through the same as Any black, arab or asian. Again, i have a university degree, wheres my High paying job, Im white after all, and according to you, Im privilleged. I live in an empty appartment cause I cant even affor furniture, School debts dont help my financial situation either. Stop making this a race thing. The economy sucks, pure and simple. And as for deportations, a czech friend of mine is threatenned with the very thing, even though hes well settled here. Its hard to know what you dont know eh?

What the hell are you on? If you can read, assuming English is your first language, then you would know that I said that IMMIGRANTS UP THERE WERE BEING EXPLOITED. Granted, my examples were based on ATS articles about Canada selectively recruiting college doctorate immigrants from Africa and India, but I did EXPRESSIVELY discuss the topic. Your white Canadianess is all in your head; had you read ALL my retort you would have discovered that I said the hierarchy is WHITE MALE CANADIANS, then WHITE FEMALE CANADIANS, then EDUCATED IMMIGRANTS, then EVERYONE ELSE. In your case, your whiteness does not exclude you as being "Canadian"; this topic has more than covered the issue of immigration - there is even a COMMENT about those naturalized being in danger of losing their citizenship.

So in your case, no one up there cares you are white. You're still "new nigra" as a immigrant.What you describe in your post is exactly what the articles about the PHD African immigrants discussed.

I think you're just pissed off that you don't get white privilege because you are not natively born.

Why is it that Indonesians have a country for Indonesians, Chinese and orientals have countries for the Chinese and for orientals, Arabs, Egyptians and Persians can have countries for Arabs, Egyptians and Persians, Blacks can have A Whole Continent just for Blacks..... but all white countries have to be invaded and diluted via multiculturalism? I ask you, why?

Esp. in the case of Canada. They did not have slaves over four hundred years ago that they are now 'paying for'..... OMG. Leave Canada alone.


Let's see...Indonesia was conquered in colonialism, China was partially conquered in Colonialism, the Middle East is currently being conquered, Egypt and most of Africa conquered first by Romans, and then in the 19th Century the "Scramble for Africa was on"...Blacks don't have a "whole continent". Africa is far from being all black thanks to colonialism. Furthermore, blacks is a term applied to those descendents of slaves. News flash - most Africans don't like blacks and view them as mutts. Other tidbit - blacks in the New World have no connection via language, culture, or history to Africa due to the chattel slavery chestnut 200 or so years ago.

Canada didn't have slaves. They had Native Americans. Canada's conquering via their European French and British masters is why they are "now paying for it". Had they stayed in their own country we wouldn't be having these types of discussions.

Your ancestors is why it will never be left alone.

I'm not sorry to say that this sort of law is exactly what is needed and I can't wait for similar to be introduced in my country.

How on earth is any of this law wrong?

Seems, like a way to keep Snowden's and other political refugees from their entering borders, or at least some excuse when turning them away. Opps sorry we would but this law... No law? Opps sorry we have no excuse really... bare in mind how many US citizens can be labeled as a terrorist, under the unconstitutional patriot act... it's a modern form of Mccarthyism aka sanctioned discrimination out of paranoia.

I do not see how the arguments being used against this bill are justified. I think it is perfectly acceptable for someone who was not a natural-born citizen to lose their citizenship if CONVICTED of terrorism or espionage. Crimes against the government should cause them to lose their citizenship. The only bad thing about laws like this in any country is when they are misused. But if used properly, and only terrorists or spies are truly targeted, then I see it as perfectly acceptable.


And what if it's for a born citizen ..? Will they go easy on them ..
Not saying crime should not be punished .. but citizenship is not a 'thing' that you can use to create second class citizens and first class citizens .. citizenship is citizenship .. otherwise it's discrimination .. thats how apartheid was based in South Africa .. either you are white or 'colored' .. would you support that?
