the best thing of it all is how Phil managed to (maybe even illegaly according to Dan's story) just get in the country by being charming as always because he probably made some dorky remark that the inmigration guy loved
No offense to Phil but I think it was more likely the guy was having a really good day, or the woman Dan got was just having a very bad day.
(Also, Dan sweating copiously and acting super nervous, and possibly over-explaining himself might have raised some suspicions.)
omg ok so im also jewish ( i know with the way i write i seem like a 5 year old but bear with me i am very tired) and i have been wondering if jews are considered people of color?? or i guess just non-white (as in the definition of american white people and their whole "culture") B/c i've never felt connected to americans (I live in the US but my family is israeli, I speak hebrew, I'm Sephardic..) and idk I just was wondering what kinda box I fit into?? sorry for all the parentheses! thank you!!
You mean how are a consider by non Jews? It depends on the context I think.
Like I’m not in USA so the context can definitely change. What I can perceive is that whiteness there works in a very different manner.
All I can tell you is based in my personal experience while living in south America and Europe.
South america has the general idea that Jews are white, while living there I had the sense we were the somehow white outsiders cause they have the idea of the eastern European jew as been the main and only idea of what Jews are like while at the same time I had the “are you Jewish? But you don’t look totally Jewish… you look kinda middle eastern” and I was…ok…. mmm
In Europe things get tricky cause literally doesn’t matter how white passing or how pale your skin is … if your ethnicity isn’t the one that likes them… you are not gonna be considered the “good white”
I guess that after all its like I read very recently around… some of us are white and some of us are not and it depends.
I’m sorry I’m not the best person to ask this since my reality it’s very different. I’m a Latina sephardi Brown inmigrant jew living alone in Europe outside any Jewish community, I have to battle against assimilation in a very different way and the whole white Jews discussion is often seen with a very north American idea and I’m sorry I’m not been helpful with your question.
Perhaps someone else wants to clarify all this more deeply so please consider to add anything to this answer.
(And I’m sorry for my English I promise I’m trying to make sense but the language barrier sometimes make it hard)
Hii, i was listening to karpe diem and theres a song called "lett å være rebell i kjellerleiligheten din" can you tell me the meaning of the song? like i know is something about inmigrants but in what posture
hey! its mocking the racist statements made by many people, like “they say they don’t have money, but they could afford the boat ride here (is this what my tax money go to?)”
its mocking the “rebells” who are so brave, sitting at home in their basements, writing racist comments on facebook. Especially “samma ulla” or that they’re all the same, cut from the same cloth.
“ Em… well. I don’t know, it’s really nice to see him supporting me time to time y’know? I think he understands his situation, America was built by inmigrants, so he’s a bit less harsh with me about it. (A biiiiiit, just a biiiit less ).
And even if he doesn’t express it publicly I think he’s secretly by my side . “
you are all sleeping on it and it is such a good series. It is about a Cuban family AND it talks about feminism, sexism, LGTB+, inmigration… It sooooooo good. So please give it a try. Also, it is funny. Like, you cannot stop laughing during the episodes.
So my advice is:
WATCH ONE DAY AT A TIME. WATCH ONE DAY AT A TIME. WATCH ONE DAY AT A TIME. WATCH ONE DAY AT A TIME. WATCH ONE DAY AT A TIME. WATCH ONE DAY AT A TIME. WATCH ONE DAY AT A TIME. WATCH ONE DAY AT A TIME. WATCH ONE DAY AT A TIME. WATCH ONE DAY AT A TIME.
Tomorrow is cinco de mayo, the anniversary of the day the mexican army won against the french, do you see USA there? No, then why do gringos celebrate it? Here in Mexico we don’t celebrate it, it isn’t our Independece Day. Gringos say they celebrate the latino inmigrants, but then the rest of the year they demonize them, it’s just a stupid ass excuse to get drunk and mock of the Mexican culture just don’t do it
