Life isn't fair, get over it. You never answered how you knew they were foreigners. My guess, You saw people who didn't look classically american
and perhaps spoke with an accent. So they must be foreigners. The irrationality of that shouldn't even be in question. Furthermore you are sitting
there proclaiming they are taking all the low-paying, jobs and driving the wages down. Well, if that's the case what are they doing in the mall
dripping with jewels? I don't think you know what you are saying. You are just angry and looking for someone to blame. Foreigners fit the bill.
Now when I go to the mall I see a bunch of white people. i'm fairly sure you'd be comfy with that until the black and brown folks come in their
jazzed up cars.
I see a mix of people.. when I care to look. More to do than look at the race of fellow shopping commandos.
As far as the annoying "jazzed" up cars and thumping ear assaults, blacks and browns dont have the corner of the market on that BS. Kids that come
over here to see my oldest .. well I can hear them a block away and they all already know my no ass or undies showing policy in my house. Id get
charged with some crime Im sure, but Ive considered pantsing the morons when they walk in like that.
Its whites just as much as any other color
here, but the "black talk" just kills me! LOL! I say, Honey.. Im real sorry if no one has never told you thins before, but you really are white. For
me its not a black thing that I am so against, though the blacks are the majority sucked into that mentality.. its the THUG mentality that crosses all
racial barriers that I absolutely and truly hate. I figure its my house... thugs arent welcome including the lily white neighbor guys thugging
As it stands today, who knows about tomorrow, I am still in control over whats in my house and who I choose for my children to be
associated and influenced by.
We were behind one of those thumping moron cars ( I dont care of its rap or the eagles/aerosmith.. I HATE it!) and it has some kind of very large
script across the back window I assumed was Israeli. Hubby pointed out the Palestinian flag bumpersticker. We joked about another immigrant being
influenced by American teen culture but he said it was the exact same thing in Iran.. kids are kids everywhere you go over the world! He said the
parents and extended family would holler at them for acting like stupid American kids. Of course this was pre present regime.
I was reading a book about the child soldiers in Africa. The boys had went to a youth education center where MTV was playing.. you know... from a dirt
floor hut to a center with MTV rap on it... UGH! The 3 boys fell in love with the rappers because they were "black boys" on TV and famous. Africans
dont seem to mind their own color or calling it black in Africa it seems.
ANyway, they started saying random English words as fast as they could
and hopping around with the rapper poses. WHen they were back in their village the grandmother screamed at them asking them if they even knew what
they were saying and why were they hopping like monkeys. She called them her monkey boys and would use the switch on them when they were too caught up
in rapping to bring water from the well!
My issue is that when an American makes an observation ( even those I definitely do NOT agree with) they are called down for being racist. Here,
racists are just as able to voice their opinions.. and it appears it is accepted in MOST countries. Human beings have opinions of their own and arent
mind controlled to accept the norm just yet, though some people seem to want that.
In Mexico we experienced hearing demeaning names for whites.. we werent called anything ourselves.. but it was that groups opinion on the behavior
concerning drunk teens on spring break. It also seems to me that "freedom" is pretty misunderstood because non Americans constantly use the word to
control what an American says or does using that word against them.Ive seen it here in ATS numerous times. Freedom isnt saying or doing whatever you
like, but world over except in truly repressed societies, people are still free and comfortable in expressing their biases.. justified or not.
In another thread a person quoted a statistic concerning black women being the greatest population infected with HPV when discussing the TSA. That was
an accurate statistic. It didnt mean that anyone is stupid enough to believe that NO whites, asians, hispanics, na's or etc were infected. It was
just a stat about the majority to illustrate the sheer numbers of infection and the possibility of it being transmitted by casual contact. This person
was lambasted for being a racist simply for mentioning a stat that dared to mentioned the black population!!
For a group of people in ATS that are supposed to deny ignorance.. I see a hell a lot of it IMO. So very touchy and sensitive... whining almost. I
hope this isnt a representation of the majority of Americans ( thank God not he majority I know personally)... if so, boy are we in trouble. Sounds
like a bunch of group-think demanding weakling whiners.
