Developed countries!! - Or are they?
One of my friends told me about an incident that her cousin experienced in US. Well, her cousin is settle there and his little daughter is in a school there. So, once he noticed that she only had the native americans as her friend and when he asked, do you know what the little girl replied? Dad we are black!! Couldn't believe there racism still exists and even in the minds of kids. If it's in the mind of kids, then surely it's their parents who teach them such things. Well, I don't know whether it's a rare incident but I'm hearing such thing for the first time. It is hard to believe that in so called developed countries racism still exist. Here is another incident. A meeting was going on and people from UK didn't attend the meeting 'coz of some sudden holiday. So, one of the indian guy, as a joke, told that "it seems today is britain's independence day". Suddenly, one of the guys there got up and said "How dare you! You know, Britain was never ruled by anyone. Britain ruled the whole world and it is people like you who have independence day" What an idiot is such a guy? Can't take a joke? or don't have a humor sense? or won't like humor when it's said by an indian?
'N don't forget about the shilpa shetty incident!! Atleast it helped her to win a lot of money.We call them developed countries and modern people. In what way are they modern? In their dazzling outfits, they look like they are from 25th century and what comes out of their mouth makes us think they are from 18th century.
So, have any of you come across such situations or atleast heard about these?
