Ethnic Supremacy. Self-entitlement based on absolutely zero personal contribution. You had no choice in the matter, you didn’t do anything to make yourself “better” than the rest.
If you had no choice in the matter, then you’ve done nothing yourself to be “proud” of.
Fuck White-Flight, and fuck “ooohh that’s the Mexican area! Don’t drive through!”. If you didn’t think so much about distancing yourself, then we wouldn’t have this sort of problem. Xenophobia and Racial Supremacy are the grim reaper for American Culture.
First World Countries have taken upon themselves to become like “Refugee Camps” for the Impoverished. Only problem; after immigrating, there’s no welcoming. For anyone. Russian immigrants, Iranian imigrants, Korean immigrants, Bolivian immigrants, anyone! “Oh, I see then. I can just keep truckin’ as a Mexican-National. As a Chinese-National. As a Ukrainian-National. Voting(if legal), Reading? LOL I don’t even care about the government. I’m not American, so fuck that. I’m flying under the radar.” <—-It’s one thing to be too fed up with the system, it’s another thing to feel like you’re not affected.
The problem with our 1st-world countries today, in my opinion, is rooted in the idea of “Multiculturalism.” “Multi-Kulti” as the Germans put it. The United States of America is no longer a “Melting Pot”, but rather a compartmentalized bento box of ethnic communities. There IS no American culture! Mutli-Kulti promotes transplanting incompatible lifestyles to a foreign culture. I’m sorry brother, but “Honor Killings” don’t fly here. Sorry sister, but speaking your language and ONLY your language, despite having lived here for 5+ years, is NOT okay. I’ve been approached by individuals who needed to inquire upon driving directions, the time, etc., in spanish. They asked me their question…in Spanish. Lucky bastards, I’m Argentine so it was no problem, and yet there is! It’s just not alright! It’s one thing to be a fresh immigrant, and having not been here very long, you haven’t been able to pick up English yet. It’s another thing to live in a community where there’s no desire to English, to the point where they don’t even condone appreciating the damn nation. If you’ve moved here, you can’t turn a blind-eye to what there is to appreciate.
There’s a shit-ton wrong with our government and societal order, but it’s a whooole lot better than where ever it is you decided to emigrate from.
It’s getting to the point where the hyphenation “-American” doesn’t even apply anymore.
I’m no Nativist, Supremist, Xenophobe or the likes. I’m an Argentine-American, through and through.
It’s understandable if your grandparents can’t assimilate with any American tradition, including speaking English. That’s compLETELY understandable. It’s very difficult to pick up a language in old age, let alone change one’s ways. But I mean, come on. 30 years old, resident for 10+ years? That’s just not cool.
I kind of covered 2 different topics, I know. There’s NOTHING wrong with appreciating your parents’ culture. Hell, to be cultured is one of the most valuable virtues in my opinion. We don’t need race wars. We don’t need emphasis on race! The only thing that holds a “minority” back is culture! unless you happen to carry some sort of genetic problem; ie: Ashkenazi Jews with Tay-Sachs, and Africans with Sickle Cell Anemia)Well, what we DO have in America is this contemporary emphasis on the most primitive of values: materialism and sexual prowess. Grow up, man. Blingblingbling, blatblatblat(gunfire lol). sexbitchessexbitches. Grow. the fuck. UP.
Just an inane rant, but it’s really important to me. MTV & BET get my goat SO0O0O bad. FOX too, but that’s unrelated lol
Liberalism and Christian-Conservatism is absolutely repulsive. Stop fighting for your party, and start fighting for your people, maaan.
Alright I should stop typing before I realize no one’s going to read this all.
TL;DR: America needs to become a Melting-Pot again, not a series of ethnic colonies. Pride in something you had no choice in the matter of is false. Stop feeling like you’re entitled to things because of what your genes are like, and be proud of your personal achievement. The only thing holding you back is your choice to disregard the diversity of our nation, AND what unifies us all. (We sort of kind of all live in the same country, y’know…). AND IT AIN’T ALL ‘BOUT BITCHES AND MONAAAY.
