No east africa but this name is a country from middle africa. I am indian. But noone can pronounce this name when my family is to immigration so we take this name because it will sound like a word that can be pronounced easy by the english. So, I see that nobody has logic argument for me but only bad names for me like moron. These names do not hurt me because I have made good and intelligent arguments. Maybe this man from london which is supposed not prjudice can explain to us what is the percent of british governement that is black as compared to white? I will take this US governmetn that will have many blacks in the government.

Hi 3 Dog, this guy is a phony, he pretends to lack command of the English language, but his sentence structure and vocabulary proves otherwise, his misspelling of words seems intentional.
I was having a nice Sunday, until this guy tries to twist the intent of my previous post to you into a accusatory racial rant, he is what we would call a race baiter by trying to provoke an angry response to prove himself right.
He is disingenuous, and not worthy of a rebuttal.
From the sound of his screen name I'm guessing that he is from East Africa!
I was thinking the same thing you said about his being a fake. It would seem that someone who's lived in the United States for 15 years would have a better understanding of life here including what's proper to say and what's not. He certainly should have a better command of the English language.

Anyways, I hope you have a good evening.

I must say that I look with disbelief at this person who accuses others of intolerance and shouting down. This person makes humor of an immigrant english, at opinions that are not the same as her opinion and cultures that are not hers. If a person is not the same as her, she tells them that they are not intelligents and will tell them to go away. This is what I say that this person can not see her own actions but only judges that action of another person not identical to her. And this person always find a way to blame somebody else like a government politician.

Can we go to the Tamil resturant now?

Can we go to the Japanese resturant now?

Can we go to the Morrocoan resturant now?

Why not? cause the waiter said that we have to leave...

You mean the country, maybe...

I think he meant the store.

We have to now, it is the American thing to do.

Just think of all of the smokers who are retired and not in the economy pinch who says to hell with restaurants (chains) because of smoking bans I can afford it but no smoke no go
Sad you won't have any company to take with you to the oxygen tent?

I smoked for over 20 years and in that time never felt the need to push my addiction (And no, it's not a habit.) onto others who weren't OK with it. Even during the last years I smoked outside at home. I say last years because I'm now quit. It's nice not setting fire to a 100 or so bucks every month.

It is obvious that you only speak but do not listen. I have heard so many as yourself to observe american but it is always cursory. You make no investigation yourself. Have you asked the black if they enjoy the worship and music culture at the white church? Do you ever go to a business meeting in the US where there are all cultures present? Do you look at our government as compared to Europe - we have many elected from many cultures in Washington DC. But I will watch the european governments and they are all white psople. So you only get your infomation through your own prejudice eyes. Black and other culture have no better place on the earth than the US. France? How many blacks in their government? England, how many blacks in their government? In france the black man is welcome to sell suvenir in front of the eiffel tower but is not allowed in government.
I have noticed the same thing.
America allows its citizens a greater opportunity to serve in government.
I don't know why people are angry with you for saying this.
