"In America, there is someone else to despise. In Canada, there is not. In the new racism, as in the old, somebody always has to be the nigger. "
Exactly right. African-Americans already represent the permanent underclass in this society. When other immigrants of similar color come over and "succeed", they tend to slap themselves on the back for their industrious attitude and "hard work." Well, no doubt people must work hard to get ahead here, but they are still getting ahead at the expense of others.
