To boost their GPA's over the non-native speakers.


Pretty much. Most schools offer Spanish and French...Punjabi is in selected schools.

I took Punjabi and French in high school, I guess it helped bump my GPA (although it was easier to get accepted in '07).

I come from and immigrant family, so like most people on this thread I have no problem with this. I am not racist! And the majority of my friends are white (happens to be I get along with them better than brown people, yes I am brown)

I think the one thing I personally want to see changed or become more accepted is inter-racial marriage I know a lot of immigrant families are scared of losing their culture if their children marry into a different race, but its the 21st century. And your living in a very multicultural country, so get used to it maybe?

Thats my biggest issue. Asides from that no objection..... If your nice to me, I'm nice to you!!! :)

There are already many signs in Richmond that basically state that white people are not welcome.,



Care to show us one? Otherwise I am very skeptical.

"Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens & the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We (Allah) parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (Qur'an 21:30)

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

Unless you are travelling to China or India, how would that be useful? Although I get your point but it is just better to have one form of language for communication so everyone could understand each other instead of making everyone learn 10 languages.


Learning a new language helps in all manners of life. One example I can think of is hiring preference - since you speak multiple languages, you have an advantage over the other guy who is uni-lingual given the same skill set.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Even 10 years from now, being non-Asian in most of Vancouver is going to be like being non-Asian in an Asian mall right now, as in expect a lot of stares and passive aggressive attitudes aimed at making you feel unwelcome, as well as being at a disadvantage in the workplace, politically etc.


So basically, the way it is for many minorities in much of Canada right now.

Including the ones who were here before 'Whitey' showed up.

The irony of this whining is kinda ridiculous, and disturbing in its self-involved ignorance.

I bet it'll happen before 2031, once an incoming ethnic group group reaches critical mass then the outgoing one(s) start moving out in droves in a snowball effect, especially when the incomers aren't friendly and have "intentions". We've seen this in many other places and times.

I have a feeling the jeers you get are really in response to the way you talk and act around them. There is usually more than meets the eyes in these types of stories.

In short, no, and I actually find I get more respect by acting when I started acting like an aggressive a-hole when I'm around those kind of people.

I doubt your getting more respect. More like they are scared of you or don't want to be around someone like you.

Whatever works, if they don't like it they don't have to be here trying to change it into the place they're trying to get away from, same thing with all the hick town refugees.

You probably don't have the guts to say this directly to anyone in real life. Your ass is jealous of your mouth. More crap comes out of your mouth then your ass. Pretty sad. It's pretty obvious who you are. I'm happy I don't know anyone like you. I don't like befriending people who can't live in harmony with others. I guess it goes both ways too, if they don't like it they don't have to be here, if YOU don't like it, you don't have to be here or there too.

trying to change it into the place they're trying to get away from


Please kindly give examples of what the f!@# you are even talking about.
