I am not proud of my country in general. No offense, but it's really just where I live. I wouldn't go out and die for the oddly shaped piece of land called America.

Sure, there's quite a bit of diversity in Canada.

I wouldn't say I'm proud of it. It's there and nobody fights and we all seem happy enough. We've got lots of wonderful varietes of foods and festivals and we all go to the football. It's just life.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 6/12/04 - 5:38:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes, I am *not* proud of how the varieties are sometimes treated.

To some extent, but I don't care for illegal aliens.

The more the merrier, that's what I always say.

It's pretty much a split between white people, asians and sikh's in BC

I don't know why I'd be proud, but I wouldn't be too happy if it was all one race.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 7/29/04 - 7:36:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, but not "Southern by the grace of God" proud.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/4/04 - 4:58:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
I agree with CRYN on this one

Thinking of just my local area (Minneapolis-St Paul), greater ethnic diversity due to recent immigration has not only made the cities more interesting and vibrant, but also much more economically strong.

Here we have the largest population of Somalis, about 70,000 and Hmong (from Laos), about 60,000, as well as large pockets of Vietnamese, Ethiopians, Russian Jews, Koreans, Mexicans, Guatemalans, Tibetans, Cambodians, Sudanese, Afghanis, and Liberians.

These recent additions to our cities mixed with the largely Scandinavian and Irish base have provided an eclectic mix that have greatly added to the city by buying up empty buildings in depressed areas and transforming these neighborhoods into great business districts.

Diversity, from what I have seen, is a win/win for everyone.

I agree with Sundance.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Monday 9/6/04 - 8:23:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I am apathetic to it.

no iam not proud because i am racist and believe that people of different races should stay in their own friggin country and free up some houses, jobs and benefits for people for the people who live in their own country but are unemployed or homeless because f*ckin foreigners are living in OUR accommodation and working in OUR jobs.when i take over the world there will be no such thing as ethnic variety
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/25/04 - 10:45:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
actually few British people WANT jobs as cleaners, binmen and streetsweepers. The positions are getting filled by people from Eastern Europe and the economy is getting stronger for it.

if i knew it, i could tell you. but my small town has like, 4 black familys, 5 or 6 asian, maybe 1 or two indian, and aside from that, almost entirely white. thats why i've got to get off my ass and travel!
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/25/04 - 11:00:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm proud - most of the time. I like the diversity and I like to learn about other cultures. I don't like the violence it can bring...especially police brutality.

17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/25/04 - 11:03:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
As a non racist individual I couldn't care less about ethnic variety. As far as I'm concerned a human is a human.

If my country was all white, or all black, or all asian, or all what the drat and I was purple skinned with a flat nose I wouldn't give two shakes of a rats ass.

If we had people every color of the rainbow I wouldn't care anymore than if we were all pink with purple poka dots.

It's meaningless drivel blown totally out of proportion as far as I'm personally concerned. It's annoying enough I've got to deal with the whole race issue at all from the ignorant masses.

I'm not proud of our ethnic diversity cause we're still talking in terms of ethnic diversity and that's nothing to be proud of.

wolf -- its okay to believe in equality, just remember that culture, heritage, and color are HUGELY important to people, and ignoring such a source of pride for so many people is kinda harsh, and will more likely be viewed as offensive instead of inclusive.
17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/25/04 - 11:14:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
They're ignorant fools. It can be as important to them as they want it to be. However almost every war and hatred is caused by such group mentalities. Until people start respecting each other as individuals the hatred and wars are never going to end.

Call it harsh if you want, I don't care. Culture doesn't mean poo, it's a bunch of people that like some of the same things or have similarities in physical features and have taken it upon themselves to veiw each other as brothers seperate from other cultures and take insults to one of their ilk as an insult to all of them. Such things can cause even the most minor of disputes to edcalate to obsenely rediculous levels.

17 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 9/25/04 - 11:18:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't care about most of these superficial rediculous groupings. I'm cautious of them cause I'm not an idiot, but I judge every individual on their own merit, and watch closely just in case they have have a group of bigots at their back.

glenh70 ur talkin crap, if u actually knew anything at all, then u would know that it is not jobs like binmen and cleaners, the majority of foreigners, especially those from pakistan, come here get grants to go to university, train to become doctors and end up in the medical proffession. i went to the doctors a couple of weeks ago and it was a pakistani who could hardly understand me(me having a scottish accent) i had to leave and make another appointment to see a british doctor.WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE WORLD??????
