Status a way to Group People
Status a way to Group People
People are racist, judgmental, petty, more or less in the closet bigots who keep saying to themselves they are open minded.
Ask yourself a question:
Do you think foreigners are smart?
The Mexican, India, China?
“We cannot bring ourselves to believe it possible that a foreigner should in any respect be wiser than ourselves…”
-- Anthony Trollope (1815 - 1882) British novelist. Orley Farm
I often find myself thinking,
“Why are all the low-class Mexican coming to the USA?”

I guess I give them low status, I do not think them as status symbols for the country.
I wrote a post about how people groups themselves
, by country, race, religion, motorcycle gangs, there are many ways to group, saying I am part of this club and I am not that club.
Now, I need to add the word “Status” to this list:
Numbers of Groups of People
I was in the airport in Korea and this Canadian girl was making some angry and insightful comments about the Nigerians in Korea. As she said or explained, I guess the Koreans consider the Nigerian as unfit to associate with, some special grouping for the Black Nigerians in Korean.
I tend to think of Asians as extreme racist, I believe they consider white supreme and off colors less than, and black as being inferior.
“Are Korean Racist?”
“No, they just care too much about Status.”
“To talk with Nigerians would be to lower their status.”
In reverse, I suppose to have a Ferrari Car, or to Fly First Class, would be a status symbol. The reverse is to be a Hobo, and live in five dollar a night hotels, taking the bus.
I admit, I am outrageously status conscious, this is one of my hobbies, I am totally enthralled with status symbols, ideas, and how a person improves or lessons his or her status on the planet. It is amazing how much work a person will do to look cool.
I was mulling this status idea around in my head, decided I need a cup of coffee in the airport. I went to the water fountain, filled up a cup of water, walked back over to the electrical outlets close to the seating. I plug my one-cup cooker into the wall electrical outlet and wait. Many people are watching, I think to myself, I suppose they think this is low status or low class, I think paying four dollars for a cup of coffee is something a lemming does.
I do not care they drink four dollar cups of coffee, I think it funny, I love to be status conscious, I mean, I constantly am aware of others people need to be upper class at any cost.
Macho in a way, death before dishonor, never admit they spend their whole paycheck, or have no remorse in billing everything to their employer.
Sometimes people make fun of me, I say,
"Now do you ever see me working, you work, and I play."Status a way to Group People
