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.



2.此外,你前面在你选择国家时提到钱不是一切。你提到的好象还有HOMENY,种族和睦,归宿感一类的吧。你还表达了对加拿大的特别的归宿感。我在想这是不是因为你找到了个洋人
LG所以才特别感到归宿吧。怎么我和我认识的人就恰恰没有这种归宿感和睦感呢。

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. :)


3. 我有个好奇的问题请问大姐。前一两个星期我在星岛上看见一篇评论。这个华人评论员
批平安省政府的教育政策是提倡种族分离,因为政府提倡在多元文化政策下各族裔要
各自独立办学,也就是华人的孩子去华人自己办的学校,白人,黑人各去他们分别独立办的
学校。您对此如何看法?您觉得这是体现了那种种族融合?是不是体现了各族裔须在自己
族裔里获得归宿感?

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. :)
