I apologize if my last post sounds a little bit offensive. :0)
Let me get back to your points.
1. About the senior positions in Asian divisions
I think I shouldn't have used "unfair competition", which was not what you meant. The point I tried to make was that in my mind those Chinese managers are just as competent as the white managers. I agree with you that some positions are more advantageous to some certain groups; in this case, it seems logic to have a Chinese manager to supervise Asian division. But back to our discussion about US discrimination law, it would be illegal for the bank not to hire a white person for that position because he is not Chinese. But the bank can require bilingual skill in both English and Chinese is essential to that position, which will automatically screen out white candidates if they are not fluent in Chinese. I believe the Chinese managers can be as competent and competitive as white managers in the other positions. In theory there shouldn't be discrimination against people based on their race, national origin and the etc. But in reality, is there discirmination? Yes, there is. That is why discrimination law cannot be abandoned now.
Yes, I feel attached to Canada personally. Not only because Canada was my first destination in the West, but also my parents immigrated there too. So Canada is my home.
There is no doubt that my LG has played a very important role in forming my point of view about the West. I see the West in my own eyes as well as in his eyes too. It provides a different perspective.
The reason to come to Canada or US, I believe is to have a better life. The first phase is to survive and the second phase is to make yourself comfortable in the new environment, not only physically but also psychologically. I think it would be tragic for people to live in a place which they don't feel at home. There are two ways to fit into a new environment: one is to be dragged in; another is to walk in, which needs more effort.
BTW, my LG is not Canadian. :)
I don't have enough background information about this case, so I don't have comments.
I really enjoy our discussion and I found it is inspiring. Let's keep on. :)
