So, this evening I went for dinner at a friends house. I took my bro and his buddy - both Americans - so that was three Americans at the dinner.

There was a bunch more people - most of which we had not met before. During dinner, I noticed a weird thing.

Bearing in mind, I live in England.... at the dinner were:

3 Americans

2 South Africans

2 Zimbabweans

2 French

1 German

1 Canadian

1 Englishman

Just struck me as weird... all those people - in the UK - and only one of us was actually born in England. :lol: England definitely has an immigration problem. :lol::lol:

I was in Manhattan a few months back with my son. We took the train up, so we were mostly getting around town on the subways. At one point, we looked around at the crowded subway car we were riding and realized we were probably the only native English speakers present. Though it didn't seem like a problem to me. I though it was pretty cool actually.

Why?

I dunno. One interesting bit is most of the people there were communicating with each other in (various qualities) of English. Sitting across from us was a Japanese exchange student helping an Italian family (who seemed to be on vacation) with their English phrase book.

I'm from the midwest, where everybody looks and talks pretty much the same. So it was really cool to be in such a cosmopolitan setting. All these people. from such diverse backgrounds, getting along in the same place. Maybe I'm still hanging on to romantic 'melting pot' notions. You think that's naive?

It's fun to be exposed to different cultures and languages.

Does it bode well for our country? Who knows. It hasn't brought great improvements to Europe and Britain, that's for sure.

Yeah, I get it. You're a racist and proud!

In fact, about half of them were black people. Not so much with the vulgar and fiithy though. Maybe they save that up for you, eh?
