Is pres. George Dubya a redneck ?Now the usage has evolved to refer to (usually) white people who seem ignorant, conservative, or narrow-minded. In other words, it no longer refers necessarily to class or location, but to ideology*
*Though someone will certainly disagree, I personally characterize that ideology as the 4 C's: Conservative-Christian-Capitalist/Consumer. *coughs* Dubya *coughs*
It may be this. Believe it or not, thatﾂｴs what happens in my case. I kinda sometimes have some anger of my own people, sometimes even by race reasons (you know, latin, 'orange' skin, like ME). I have this really stupid thing in my head, that I canﾂｴt take it off. I grew totally influentiated culuturally by Americans, and I kinda sometimes feel like inferior to 'white'. Especially when I see one. For example, in the city Iﾂｴm living now, an American couple, which have a son (I think he has about 15 or 16 years) moved to live 5 years here. Their son is really popular here, especially with the girls. An example of how 'white' are well seen, received and treated, not just here or Japan, but in many places in which there is kind of 'American influence' (where people are influentiated by American culture)???Maciamo said:Do Japanese people believe that Asians (including themselves) are inferiors to "white" people (a term I don't like as Japanese are as white as a Northern European) ? Do they fear more to be cheatedor robbed by an Asian than someone of European descent if they weren't born an educated in Japan ?
