Its the other way around...unfortunately !!!
I am from a medium city in the center of Portugal. I am sure that we treat other people BETTER then ourseves!!! If you are black everyone will be nice to you and say hello to you at school!
We pay 200 euros A MOUNTH to every brazilian, africans from angola, mozambique, cabo verde etc because they were part of our empire and speak our language! I am young and probably my pension is going to be the lowest of the entire U.N! So if we were racist we would not give millions of euros to imigrants since we have economic troubles.
I think we do have a problem with organization, accuracy and work ethic. But you know what? Thats due to the poor educational system we have. I was an emigrant and saw many portuguese work! And they work like no one else! You can see that every portuguese community in any part of the world has a good reputation. The thing is that when we are in our country the 420 euros minimum wage is not catchy enough!!!
The biggest problem of our country are the polititians that steal from the "regular joe"! After the April 25th we gained liberties... we opened ourseves to the world once again but we lost respect for what is ours... There are few patriotic people unfortunatly. The young people are VERY OPEN MINDED to imigrants and everything that is different but they DONT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT WHAT IS OURS! So everything about we being close minded, arrogant, racist and every line of though going that way is completly bullshit!!!
Anyway I would rather have what most of the english came here and said about us (Close Minded, Arrogant, Proud and etc) than have the whole nation afraid and not giving a shit of being patriotic and fighting for the interests of the nation! The americans are that way and they gain alot from that position!! The spainish to the same thing and they gain alot from that position!! so on son!
IT IS TIME TO THING FIRST ABOUT OUR PEOPLE; FIRST ABOUT WHAT IS BEST FOR OUR NATION IF WE WANT TO GROW HEALTHY AND STRONG!
Portuguese will understand better what i am saying even if they disagree.Zé Povinho 15 apr 2009, 07:46 - Rapporteer misbruik
