A shared experience on one of the blogs:
When my parents came as immigrants from Poland in 1949 to Canada, my father was spit on and called names. Everyday, his co-workers told him to "GO HOME FOREIGNER" and would even try to urinate on him. It really hurt him so much that he had a nervous breakdown. He never liked living here Olga and he really did die of a broken heart. He was a school teacher in Poland but b/c he did not know the English language, when they came here to Canada and my parents were too poor to go back to school at that time, my father was made to feel like a bum, a nobody who never got one ounce of respect! My parents bc they were "foreigners" from Poland could not even get a job washing dishes. My father did get a job in construction but it barley paid for the food. My mothers hair all fell out from hunger as she would lie to my dad who was working in construction that she ate that day, when in fact she didn't. Hate is such a horrific thing! My mother was 8 months pregnant and was pushed while she was on a subway in Toronto and told to go back where she came from. She fell to the ground and lost her 8 month baby boy. He could not be saved in those days. I often say, we have so much to learn from the animals, especially dogs b/c their love for us is unconditional. And Humans have not evolved enough as yet to be able to love other humans unconditionally. Sad.......very sad Olga😢😢.......Susan
Take Action Against Illegal Immigrants Supremacy. Legal Immigrants Must be Compensated.
There are about 40 million legal immigrants in the USA. We have large voting power.
Almost no one doubts that cruelty is wrong. DACA is racist, unfair and cruel to legal immigrants and to those who have applied for legal status. Lawbreakers are rewarded; those who obey the law are punished. Our government is interested in helping illegals, but not us, legal immigrants and those who are on the waiting list.
Sign. Make a call. Spread the Word.
Part 1: Who are those “white” people?
Part 2: Recent immigrants from Africa and probably descendants of African slave owners and slave traders, who made a fortune on slave trade, receive ethnic minority status and affirmative action program the moment they put their feet on the American soil. They also get scholarships not available to Eastern Europeans. Why?
She certainly seems to be suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, but she is not alone. Millions of Eastern Europeans suffer from this psychological condition too.
My dear friends, please, stop addressing people who are illegally in this country as “Dreamers”. It is insulting to us, legal immigrants. I am a legal immigrant. So I am not a dreamer? Should I return my visa to the government, go back, and return illegally to be called a “Dreamer”?
For a nation built on a foundation of indebted servitude, disenfranchisement of indentured servants brought here from Eastern Europe, where I am from, the super-exploitation of Eastern European immigrant labor, and corporate capitalism, the Democratic Party’s war on equality is of no small import.
We must send a request to the Commission on Human Rights to consider establishing a working group or other mechanism of the United Nations to study the problems of racial discrimination faced by people of Slavic descent living in the Slavic Diaspora and make proposals for the elimination of racial discrimination against people of Slavic and Eastern European descent.
We see very strong resistance coming from both, people of color and the White to the idea of ethnic minority status for the Eastern Europeans. They are stuck in the racist lie and do not want to acknowledge racial terrorism, racial subordination and racial inequality in the United States as it pertains to us, immigrants from Eastern Europe and the people of Eastern European descent.
We need a real commitment from human-rights lawyers, law educators and the large student body to ethnic minority status, affirmative action program, reparations and to truth and reconciliation for people of Eastern European descent.
We, Slavs, are not White or Caucasian. We are a separate race that must be recognized legally as an ethnic minority and receive affirmative action program in the USA. This is not a question of “if”; it is a question of “when” and the sooner the better for all involved. Once, we, Slavs, receive our status, race relations will improve in America.
Once we obtain a separate status, we will be able to study our progress in this country:
In this section, I will be giving examples of racism from academia and the media.
Our first example comes from Al Jazeera America and The Education Trust. Read on.
