Default Let's blame the immigrants ...

I was speaking to an aunt who lives out West.

Her son's daughter "can't find a job".

And why?

Because all the immigrants are taking them.

Aunt: "You go into (Store) or (Store) and you don't see any Caucasian faces at the registers. I know they need the jobs but it would be nice to see some of our own." (Er ... maybe because they're the ones who've found BETTER jobs ... ?)

Let's ignore the fact that she had a job (retail). She needed all four molars out and quit her job.

Me: "Wouldn't they give her time off?"

Aunt: "Oh, I don't know if she asked. But she didn't like it anyway."

Um ... this is a kid with very little experience. At anything. Same aunt said in an earlier conversation: "She doesn't like retail or fast food."

This is not a situation where you can afford to have a lot of pickiness.

She apparently has done no volunteer work either.

And aunt uses, of course, the old "I'm not prejudiced but ..." Repeatedly.



Aunt also felt it was grossly unfair to be teaching calculus to arts students.

Ohhh I hate that. "would be nice to see some of our own" Ugh. My mother was just like this. She was upset because a family member had a half black baby and "broke our white line" Whatever....who really cares? Race comes down to where people evolved, it's due to climate. That's it. People need to get over themselves.

Said aunt is constantly moaning about all the "immigrants" (read: NON-WHITE immigrants) in her area. She was carrying on once about how all the taxi drivers were [guess which area of the world they appear to have come from] and how she's always afraid they will drive her out of the city and mug her and leave her.

My brother's reaction to this: "I'm pretty sure they're just happy to have a customer who's not drunk and isn't going to puke all over the upholstery ..."

If I was driving a cab I'd prefer the drunk at least the puke they spew is easier to clean up and they stop spewing it when they sober up.
