Racism - callout as it is

The liquor stores have detrimental effect and they blame ethnic groups from the Asian communities opening these businesses in their communities. 

The types of Sikhs that get hit by the black communities tend to be recent migrants who open these businesses and live in these communities. 

Eventually when these migrants become more established they move out of these areas.

100% true. Instead of learning the value of the hard work they feel jealous and those shop owners who ignore and focus on the hard work with risking their lives, they move to the next level and vast majority of their kids end up getting good education. However, this is the same attitude comes from both black/whites. 

I also believe that the system is making them unable to stand on their feet.

There are a lot of African Americans that have resentment towards other ethnic groups if they have certain types of businesses in the neighbourhoods like liquor stores.

I have friends that lived in Flushing in Queens. Flushing is mainly a Chinese area, my friend would rather pay several hundred bucks on rent to live here than somewhere like Jamaica Heights.

What people also need to realise New York is effectively a minority - majority city. There are not many WASP (White Anglo Saxon Protestant) living in New York.

The major white communities tend to be Jews, Italians and Irish.

Sikhs are predominantly in Queens and they are surrounded by mainly Hispanic, other Asians and blacks.

This reminds of this famous scene in Menace II Society 

Having visited America a couple of times, I would say the Hispanics are the most racist and rude. The blacks were the most friendly followed by the whites.

What's strange is that I've met a few really black loathing people from the UK who do business in the US (around NY and Miami) and whatever experiences they have had seems to have changed them. Now they say they can't stand black people but African-Americans are okay. lol! 

Might watch that film again btw. Haven't seen it in many years.

The Hispanics are a diverse group.

In Florida  (particularly South Florida), they are mainly Cuban.

In New York, they are mainly Puerto Ricans, Dominicans and Columbians and this varies depending in which borough you are in.

California and Texas, they are mainly Mexicans.

When I speak to my East Coast relatives, in their opinion the Hispanics are not bad bunch, quite family orientated but when they live with blacks, they pick up a lot of their mannerisms. 

I think it depends where in the US you go to.

When you mix with Americans and from different parts of the US, you come to realise the country is more like a continent. 

Even African Americans from different parts of the US are very different from each other. 

I went to both Los Angeles and New York.

I found the Mexicans in LA and Puerto Ricans equally as rude. My wife has been to Miami and said the Cubans were similar.

They just seem to have a really bad attitude. Even a Malaysian Indian I worked with who frequently flew to New York said you don't want a Hispanic guard at Immigration when you land, they will give you a hard time.

It would be like southall.........

My wife's from there. It's full of lunatic drivers and generally impatient people who have no regards to following laws.

There's no country with a South Asian majority that can be considered a first world country.

New Yorkers generally are quite a rude bunch. And that is New Yorkers of all ethnic groups.

Californians I find a lot more relaxed and laid back (generalisation here) compared to New Yorkers.

But your experience could because you were in the big cities. In the smaller cities and towns people tend to be friendlier. 

I myself had a bad experience at JFK airport, one with an African American and one with an Italian American.

    • Hey bro, by Vaheguru ji kirpa you are doing incredibly well. You received Amrit at young age, and from Sri Anandpur Sahib, wow that’s awesome! Amrit doesn’t ‘break’.  All young people are the same, kaam is strong at that age. As for feeling down, honestly every person in this world is miserable and down. Life is harsh and unpredictable. Death doesn’t always come in old age it can come at any time. Daas is not from any Sikhi background at all. My younger brother passed when I was 9, that’s what started spiritual curiosity. Religion is a game, spiritually is something different. Maybe life has to be unduly cruel to show you deeper things.  The purpose of human life was to merge back with Vaheguru. Kulyug, maya, 5 vikaar are absolute snakes which wrapped themselves around people to distract them of that purpose. Bro Vaheguru expressed his love towards you by arranging you meet Satguru ji. Now you gotta take strength and fight. Your strength will come from gurbani, sangat, seva, simran, keertan, katha. Sikhi history will give strength too.  Guru Sahib Ji loves you so much, he sacrificed his chaar sahibzade for YOU. Focus on your relationship with Guru Sahib Ji. Love him back and trust him. ❤️
    • No your amrit has not "broken" if you haven't committed any of kurehit of tann, physically. You mention kaam and mann, so I assume it is chetvan kaam. Worst you can get is a tankhah from panj piare otherwise. Biggest influence on your mann will be sangat around you, be sure to filter through your sangat and environment. Keep your head up Singh. 
    • Maharaj, any updates? Daas is planning on doing the same in the coming future.

      So I am 16 and was blessed with khande di pauhl exactly 1.5 months ago at anandpur sahib. Before that, I practiced everything a khalsa would do. nitnem, chastity, naam abhyas, etc. I have a pretty good image in public and people. Before, i felt like guru is very much near me, but now I feel like i am being seperated from him. I still do nitnem but i really want to defeat kaam and other evils. I read other threads but I feel like this is the only option left. I quit social media for 6 months but now my manmukh mind is back at it. I have committed no kurehit. Please tell me my amrit is not broken.
