American Prejudice

Sometimes I look at how many Americans react to some stimuli and I think I can understand why a lot of outside countries don't like Americans. My 2 partners for Shine Corp. are from India and the difference between them and Americans is like night and day. It's unbelievable! Those people from India, Pakistan, the Philippenes, they are the MOST caring people you'd ever meet! Americans are quite the opposite! And I hear a lot of bad talk about people from those places! Mostly from other Americans. When I told my partner that I am on a low income and why, he was so nice, he wanted to help me out! Americans just gripe because they think you are lazy or uneducated. They don't do anything about it, they just gripe. That's the favorite pastimes of Americans I think, griping. Too busy thinking about themselves to spend any time thinking about how other people feel. Believe me, I don't get that from my friends in India, Pakistan nor the Philippenes! They are nice people.

Now, my partner in India is helping me out the most. And all I have to do is secretarial work. He promises to make me thousands of dollars by this time next year. We will see. But it is a mighty fine ambition! I'm loving this idea more and more. If it all works out, I may be able to move into my own home before too long! Then I can live wherever I want and have as many pets as I want. No restrictions. No extra deposits, nothing! Just me, my dogs and I. Maybe even some horses.

The Indians are willing to help, but the Americans all they want to do is complain. I see it all the time on the Bozeman Rants and Raves on Craigslist. They gripe about how low income people are "sponging off other Americans that have to work for what they have". HA! Well, poor folks work hard too. Just because they are poor does not mean they are being lazy. I work doing odd jobs for people. I work as hard as the guy who may make $25 per hour. I hate it when those people gripe about others who are not as "rich" as they are. But it happens all the time among Americans. But it's funny how it does not seem to matter to those I know in other countries.

So is this what it means to be an American? That's ridiculous. Makes me want to move to a remote island somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Possibly live out the remainder of my days there. My one big issue is how much Americans complain about people who are different from them. I've seen this to some extent in other countries too (UK and Australia are almost as bad in this department as Americans) but America, being as developed as it is, you'd think the people here would be more caring, kind and considerate. But no. They aren't. Seems the countries Americans consider enemies have been the ones I've found are the most compassionate.

Don't get me wrong, I don't hate this country. What I hate are the people in it. How they have forgotten how to have compassion for one another. They have just as many beggers on their corners in India as we have in America. Maybe even more so. Yet my friends and partners from India want to help me to a more stable income. And they aren't even asking me to do much for it, except help them. The job they give me is so easy, a child can do it! My partners are not even one of those poor people you might think of when you think of someone living in a village in India. They come from a more wealthy part of the country. They went to college to learn how to do what they do. They live in houses, not huts. So, it's not like they are poor. They're just very compassionate. Nothing like wealthy Americans, who care more for money than they do people, and those who do not have as much money as they do, they look down on them as scum.

Well, I hope in all Heaven's honesty that my partner will be making me thousands of dollars a month by this time next year. It'd be great!! Even the extra $100 I'll be getting these next months will help me out considerably! Especially with a new rental that will probably be taking away more than 50% of my current income. I don't know, I've looked at several. I found some cool places in Aberdeen, Raymond, Coos Bay, Westminster Bay, and even Friday Harbor. I visited Friday Harbor once and I loved it! Even Karen said she would be pea-green with envy if I moved to Friday Harbor. I loved it there, and they have a lighthouse! I love lighthouses. It'd be awesome to see that shining into my window every night, and hear the moaning of the foghorn on unclear nights. I'd love it!
