What it is and what it do? I am back to deliver some knowledge onto your domes...except this is all opinion.
I recently had a surprise conversation with someone i forgot was on my contacts list. This person was a candidate for a podcast i am running. He messaged me complaining about Canada's winter and how he was cold. He then started to say how Americans could never deal with Canada's snowfall.
Pretty soon the conversation shifted over to America. Now, I love America as much as the next guy but I also love to give it grief because, this nation is flawed. I mean, what nation isn't? I could go on a rant about politics and how we can improve, but I really don't have the interest to....right now.
As the conversation went along I decided to act out the stereotypical American while the skype user continued to put in his two cents worth of opinions. I told him that i wanted to move, but didnt want to go to Canada thinking it was too cold. Heres what he had to say:
that, i did not know. My friend in Canada has been saying its always cold
[4:08:48 PM] Jalokim [(Mikołaj Dudek) VA for Tartarus Productions]: he has been feeding you mis-information
[4:09:10 PM] Jalokim [(Mikołaj Dudek) VA for Tartarus Productions]: most of the world doesnt know jack shit about Canada. All they know about it comes from you fucks
[4:09:22 PM | Edited 4:09:30 PM] Jalokim [(Mikołaj Dudek) VA for Tartarus Productions]: which is actually REALLY inaccurate
[4:10:21 PM] Jalokim [(Mikołaj Dudek) VA for Tartarus Productions]: actually for me, the summers here are too hot
[4:10:30 PM] Jalokim [(Mikołaj Dudek) VA for Tartarus Productions]: which is why I love late spring
[4:11:06 PM] Дакота Helheim(пожар): i can sense you dont like americans that much
[4:11:11 PM] Jalokim [(Mikołaj Dudek) VA for Tartarus Productions]: not at all
Afterwards, I called him out for being Ethnocentric, which is another way of saying he thinks his country is superior. He back tracked and tried playing it off as hating our government.
When I tried pointing out to him that insulting people and their countries isnt a way to make friends he simply went emo on me and said he doesnt care, and that he would rather die alone.
I would quote the rest of what he said , but I quickly blocked him and un-added him as a contact.
The point I am trying to make here is, dont be Ethnocentric. Just because you dont like a country or culture, it doesnt give you the right to insult a person who comes from said country or culture
