What Is Your Nationality?

Postby Imbalistan » Thu Jun 13, 2019 8:14 am

To get away from the usually depressing world of General, I am here to ask: what is your nationality?

Mine? Born and raised in the USA to Pakistani Immigrant parents. My father was the son of rich granary, which fell under government control. He moved to Saudi Arabia at age 8, and at age 18, got a education visa to the US.

My mom was born to Pakistani parents, and lived there for only a month before my moms and her family came to the USA on a education visa.

In all? Pakistani.

Anglo-Luxembourger with roots in America. Primarily identify as British though.

Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

It might not become too racist/religious/political.

Threads.. Threads never change.

They change rarely. My topic on what age children should be given phones at was a rather big debate, but there were never any racist/religious/political references.

Actually, after editing the title, there's no way this can be fixed. Like the Chan Island quote in Imbalistan's signature says, this will turn into a racist shitshow in no time. The thread is locked and please don't re-post.
