white people are expats, the rest of you golliwogs are immigrants...,


guardian |  In the lexicon of human migration there are still hierarchical words, created with the purpose of putting white people above everyone else. One of those remnants is the word “expat”.

What is an expat? And who is an expat? According to Wikipedia, “an expatriate (often shortened to expat) is a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country other than that of the person’s upbringing. The word comes from the Latin terms ex (‘out of’) and patria (‘country, fatherland’)”.

Defined that way, you should expect that any person going to work outside of his or her country for a period of time would be an expat, regardless of his skin colour or country. But that is not the case in reality; expat is a term reserved exclusively for western white people going to work abroad.

Africans are immigrants. Arabs are immigrants. Asians are immigrants. However, Europeans are expats because they can’t be at the same level as other ethnicities. They are superior. Immigrants is a term set aside for ‘inferior races’.

Don’t take my word for it. The Wall Street Journal, the leading financial information magazine in the world, has a blog dedicated to the life of expats and recently they featured a story ‘Who is an expat, anyway?’. Here are the main conclusions: “Some arrivals are described as expats; others as immigrants; and some simply as migrants. It depends on social class, country of origin and economic status. It’s strange to hear some people in Hong Kong described as expats, but not others. Anyone with roots in a western country is considered an expat … Filipino domestic helpers are just guests, even if they’ve been here for decades. Mandarin-speaking mainland Chinese are rarely regarded as expats … It’s a double standard woven into official policy.”

System (with a capital S) = Society in general.....
---- Expat - Self sufficient, has resources, FTO, and viable options and choices.
---- Immigrant - Parasite fled to benevolent host, saving own hopeless ass from chaotic 3rdWorld S-hole.

...Accurate descriptions are essential for good communications. BD is sorry that different nomenclatures, however offensive, must of necessity apply to peoples of different personal qualities. So, deal with it......

lol, Remy, are you telling me thatThat the kid showered (in shame?) with his tighty-whities on seemed odd in a room full on free-swinging kids. That the kid couldn't understand how even the Black kids could still
attract the pretty white girls while he struggled with game seemed to
make him more confused.was dead on the money.
