Haitians weren't induced to migrate to Chile through lies and false promises from your government unlike they did to the croatians. Haitians went to Chile by their own will. Do you get the difference?

If you have any other doubt about the views of your politicians on race, migration and social status, here you have the final answer:



Around minute 1:23, Sebastian Pińera, the President of Chile says: "Congratulations Sir, you did a great job. You're improving our race." He said this to a man who is holding a blonde little child. Disgusting.

I'm not accusing chilean people of being evil or unfriendly. I also have friends who have visited Chile and they felt very welcomed there. I'm merely pointing out their difficulties to accept themselves and their ethnic roots.

That would be the present day vulcanic lake Danau Toba, in Indonesia.

I think you are really reaching. I've been used to hispanic people talking about "la raza" not to mean race as in black, white, etc., but in the sense of "our people" that is, the community, the nation. I'm not fluent in Spanish, but I didn't get the sense of something disgusting there. I'll be interested to hear what Abraxas says about it. But, for me it's like this thread is being hijacked. And it started out as a nice little thread without virulence -- a rarity on MTF.

Also, I've heard Mexicans talk about Argentines as being snooty and thinking they are more European than other Latin American countries, but I've not heard them say the same about Chile.

as far as im aware, i am a typical latin american mestizo. i.e. partly spanish and partly american indian.

i like to think that on the spanish side i also have some moorish ancentry given that most spanish have moorish blood running thru their veins.

what about you?
I'd encourage you to foster more of your "indian" genome. I spent time on a reserve and once you get used to their mannerisms, they are enchanting people.

I'd say the main reason your neighbour is a flasher is because of the alienating affects of our industrial/capitalist world.

Not sure on proportions but I'm South Asian/Caucasian. By South Asian I mean Pakistani and by Caucasian I mean Armenian.

is Mizrahi the same with Sephardic?

And is it true that Ashkenazi actually do not share the same bloodlines/race with Sephardic?
(ie. not true descendants of Israel?)

You're talking about the mexicans and other central-americans. Chileans don't use the word "raza" in that sense and certainly Mr Pińera was not using it in that sense (otherwise that video wouldn't have caused so much controversy in Chile, btw: link1 - link2 - link3 - link4 )

Sorry If my posts make you feel disturbed somehow. It is a disturbing issue indeed but everything I said about Chile are actual facts and if we aren't able to talk openly about this we aren't being helpful or constructive.

You can see it by yourself: http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/fellows/chile_2008/ (This is an english-speaking report)

If you don't have enough time to check out the report, here you have some significant captures:

No, they are broad groups of the same people just like it happens in other nations.

It's not true, but even if it was, it's irrelevant, because culture makes us what we are.
