Re: Racial frustrations

I have had the same experience as a Canadian of South Asian descent. People are always asking where I am really from and imply I am not truly Canadian. Even though I did immigrate to Canada (from England) I never give in, I just continue to insist I am Canadian.

In a related story, the other day at the bar a guy of Turkish descent who has lived here for 25 years since he was 4 doesn't consider himself truly Swiss, which is bizarre to me as a Canadian.

Things are different around here. It matters what your blood is. Go with it, enjoy Switzerland and Europe, and appreciate how great we have it in Canada.
