Brown In America: Made In China
I am not sure America was ever the great nation it pretends to be. Immigrants from all over the world come there because they believe it is the land of opportunity, a country where the poorest can become the richest, but then they end up struggling and becoming the oppressed or remaining in a similar state of poverty they wish to escape from. A lot of people seem to neglect that the cost of living in America is really high compared to other countries. Even if it seems Americans make a lot of money in comparison to their counterparts. outsiders looking in seem to neglect that the vast majority of this money goes to greedy corporations.
What I believe is the success stories of America have been greatly exaggerated by film and the media. For instance a lot of people will point to Barack Obama's success or Oprah's success and declare that means black people are finally equally liberated, which is simply not true. One successful black person doesn't wipe out a slave nations history and one successful immigrant does not ensure success for all immigrants. Their stories let us know success is possible, but possibility is not reality and the circumstances surrounding their success are likely not surrounding you. We have to find the right circumstances to be successful in and that doesn't necessarily mean America for many and for many reasons.
If you want to educate yourself France, Germany, Sweden and Brazil offer world class education for free just to name a few. If you are entrepreneurial and want to start your own business, it would be wiser to go to a country that is under developed to start a business like China. America is a developed nation. It might have been great for an entrepreneurial spirit in the past, but no longer. If you want to be a zoo keeper I would recommend Africa or Australia.
I see so many people come to America and the main reason they fail is they have no clue what they want to do other than make money and escape poverty. Hell, that's why American's fail in America. Too many people think the same way, come to America to get rich and it's saturating our market and contributing to poverty. You cannot just out run poverty. You have to have a plan and that is why many countries like China try to only allow skilled immigrants to enter their country. For me to enter China, I had to have a BA and a minimum of two years work experience in my field. I also had to have a police report and a company sponsor. They don't want people with no skills and no plan to enter their country and this is wise and what is best for the individual and the nation.
Building a wall is stupid, most immigrants fly in anyway. My last roommate was from Romania and he was an illegal immigrant with no skills. He was working two jobs illegally at Burger King and McDonald's. He asked me to marry him to get his paper and I said, NO. He then called me selfish for not sacrificing my whole life to correct his mistake he could of easily avoided. He kept trying to convince me marrying him was what was best for me. He even offered me 10k, but to be stuck with that guy for 3-5 years wasn't worth it. Not to mention that kind of marriage fraud is a felony. When I asked him why he let his visa expire, he said because he thought an American woman would marry him. He chose to become illegal in this country. He didn't even run out of money or anything. He just neglected to handle his business.
I do not feel bad for guys like this and they should be deported because they have no skills and because they do take jobs from our unskilled workers who need them to support their own American families. America does provide tons of path ways to citizenship, including marriage and just living in America properly for several years with all your visas in order can get you citizenship.
In China I could be a doctor, adopt a Chinese baby, marry a Chinese man and I would still not have Chinese citizenship, so I do not feel bad for immigrants in America who are illegal, because we provide tons of channels for them to become legal citizens. There is a big difference between the person fleeing for their life and someone seeking out fortune and fame. Refugees are a different story entirely over the Mexican guy who comes over here to strike it rich.
Recently, I immigrated to China who has a stricter immigration policy than almost any nation and I did it the right way and with hardly any money. I have my Visas in order. I won't let them expire. I don't believe in living in other countries illegally. I am simply under valued in my homeland and as more illegally come to my nation to find work, the more colored people are devalued further. If illegal immigration makes it harder for white people to find jobs, imagine how much harder it makes it for the black people.
All I know is the world is constantly shifting and you have to deal with the changes. You need to become more skilled and adaptive to survive in this global market. Now more than ever, it's about what you can uniquely bring to the table. Show the world who you are and you will succeed, but you won't do it without MAD SKILLS.
See many successful people find a loop hole. They realize the current way of doing things is not working and they make their own path. I didn't do anything astonishing like make Facebook like Mark Z, but I did go to China, which was an extremely clever and resourceful move for me and perhaps the only way I was going to escape my plight of poverty.
