Not saying blacks or asians or arabs are all living in harmony but...
I've never seen a white person discriminated against by another culture elsewhere in the world. In fact, white people are more welcome in other cultures than any other race. My stepdad was white and whenever he and my mom would go to Sri Lanka he would get royal treatment. People pulling out chairs for him to sit on in shops, pouring him tea and all kinds of grade A shit. It happens all over Asia. Not really sure about Africa since I don't know any white people who have been there as tourists. Ask my boy about when he applied for a teaching job in China and they asked him for pictures of his "lighter side". Dude didn't get the job because he was Charlie Murphy dark.
Also, winter is not necessarily something that's akin to white cultures. If you're talking about freezing/cold temperatures during winter, then that's something else, but to define people who are white as people who survive cold temperatures, you're essentially discounting many Europeans but factoring in Native North Americans as well as people who chill up Northern Mongolia and other places. I don't think that's accurate.
The idea that whites have nothing to gain from multiculturalism but have endure it is some straight bullshit too. Next time I see a white girl on the train with a yoga mat the South Asian in me is going to slap her and say that she has nothing to gain from this. White people have been "borrowing" from Eastern cultures for centuries and the fact that health practices from the East such as acupuncture, yoga, martial arts, ayurvedic medicine, etc. are so prevalent in our society today is proof that they have as much to gain from other cultures as they do to give.
Multiculturalism isn't about one culture forcing their point of view on another. Much to the dismay of the people who are afraid to embrace other cultures, there is a way for people to take from both cultures and blend them into a positive culture that can work for everyone. I grew up in two cultures and one of them was white, so I've seen the ups and downs of the culture.
It's cool if you want to have your white pride and shit, but I think the cause of bettering society as a whole, no matter what culture or belief or race you come from should take precedence over any type of pride.
Keb buddy. you'll never understand how the world works if you continue to take the Establishment's word for it at face value through their media talking heads. Progressive Socialism is Evil, Orwell wrote books about it. All those good intentions pave a road to hell.
Progressive socialists only champion multi-culturalism because the want to secure votes from “minorities” during election cycles since they can't maintain a majority share of the “majority”voting pool better than the Conservatives. A political party is a pyramid structure, so everyone's drinking the kool-aid except the guys at the very top. They know the real "deciders" are those old men who sign the checks that fund the campaigns.
That Royal Treatment your Father experienced isn't about his skin tone, it's because they know his culture is affluent and you're family was there to spread it around. Asians don't respect Africans because their culture is technologically primitive and prone to violence. Africa is a hot place; there's no need to invent shelter and idle hands make for a lot of rationalized greed and mistreatment of others. Those tribes warred against each other and made slaves of one another long before Europe ever showed up.
You’re hung up on stereotypical views because like most people, you are indoctrinated to perceive the world through nationalist bias. Cultures that have to deal with winter are more compassionate and generally more technologically savy, including Mongolia, China, Japan, Innuit, U.K., and Northern Europe. Winter wouldn't have to be "snow" per se but winter would be defined as a significant period of time each year where exposure to the elements would be fatal. Cultures that only have to worry about miserable rain and lashing themselves down once in a while don't have the same imperative to be any more advanced or more compassionate than they are at aboriginal levels.
Rethink you’re statement about the girl with the yoga mat again now that you see you are incorrectly comprehending my position. A lot of East is “White” come December. Yay, India is going to leave their Caste System of society at home but they brought us ethnic food and yoga for people who don't care about peripheral cardiac function of their skeletal muscles or myotatic reflex. That's an equal contribution to modern society; just as significant as the train you're riding on or the electricity that's been harnessed, the metullurgy, engineering, plasitcs, paper for the ticket, or the language that you would speak to her in. Keb, It's not about East vs West, it's about Poles vs Centers. It's not White vs Dark, its about Winter vs Summer. Necessity is the mother of invention(s) and that’s why we have them and they don’t.
I say lets use the Japanese model where they embrace multi-culturalism when and where they see fit and they also maintain Japanese only businesses and activities that are prohibitive to non-Japanese, without fear of reprisals from ideological fanatics who are hell bent on control and enforcement. That's the beauty of more laws; it means more infrastructure is required. More Cops, more bureaucrats, more politicians, more accountants and more taxes to pay for it all. Progressive Socialism is a make work project to rationalize government jobs and professional activism for pseudo-intellectuals who don't want to work for a living.
You think the cause of bettering society as a whole, no matter what culture or belief or race you come from should take precedence over any type of pride because you've been brainwashed by a very biased political agenda that has unlimited media influence.
All cultures are not equal and those that are inferior are celebrated at a disproportionately significant level at an inverse relationship to the potential voting demographic they represent which exposes the disingenuous agenda of Progressive Socialism for what is: political pandering. In the grand scheme of things, Equatorial cultures are good for food and drink and unique social experiences in beautiful locations. They are the most backward when it comes to gender equality, social justice and opportunities for individual prosperity but you would have us call them peer? That's like inviting a professional athlete to compete at the Special Olympics but then expecting him to lose to make the other kids feel "special".
Now imagine that everything in life is the Special Olympics; those professional athletes are going to start getting resentful. This provides the Establishment with yet another divisive tool to keep all us “Tiggers”(We are ALL "Tiggers" in the eyes of the 1%) distracted with infighting so we don’t notice what they are up to behind the curtain.
