Snow shoveling in the multi-culti paradise

‘In years past, snowstorms were just white guys out clearing snow and black guys walking in the middle of

the street. Go into cities like Baltimore, Washington or Philadelphia after a snow and you always see a bunch of black people walking in the streets. We still had some of that, but we’re much more vibrant now so the mix of responses to the snow is more diverse too.

Watching the Indians deal with snow has been one of the more enjoyable things over the last twenty-four hours. They suck at snow removal. Now, America tends to get only upper caste Indians so they are probably not used to physical work, but mastering a shovel is not that hard. Watching ten of then work one shovel, smoking and gibbering to one another made me feel like Charles James Napier.

One of things I’ve noticed about South Asians is they tend to confuse activity for work. (Women do this too – ed.) South Americans do this and have made it an art form.’

I haven’t checked out Z Man in a while, so you get a twofer.

UPDATE – Comment from “Uker”:

Very few people after that bothered to clear snow, which is a wonderful way of saying we were happy to work together for the general good until some smart arse lawyer decided there was money for him/her in laying blame, so we opted for no blame.

        Well, at least the old beatnik was right about something!

        Mark Goldblatt’s novel/satire ‘Africa Speaks’ is worth a look.

    Wow, the hatred here against Hindus is pathetic. Sure there are some snobby, elitist Hindus who look down on physical labour. But not everyone who is a Hindu in the West is ‘upper caste’. India is a very warm country, so some of the lack of snow shovelling experience is due to a lack of experience. At least Hindus ( like Jews) work hard and do very well economically in the West, don’t commit terrorist attacks and are least likely to be on welfare. Hindu hating Christians and right wingers are obsessed with ‘caste’ and bring it into any conversation just to demonize Hindus.

    • I took the piece really just to be about the way that different groups tend to self-segregate and not cooperate with each other. I didn’t get the impression he was particularly trying to single anyone out. I mean, everyone understands that India (and Morocco, and Mexico etc.) aren’t snowy places.

      “In fairness, it could very well be their otherness that keeps them from hustling. When I was out shoveling, a few walked past clutching beers. They probably would have been happy to help for some cash, but they were not going to offer. I’m as alien to them as they are to me. But, that’s the problem in a nutshell with the multi-culti paradise. Everyone is a stranger in a strange land.”

      And I really doubt the guy’s a Christian.

    • No one here hates Hindus Canuckistan, you know that and we all recognize your comments as valid. The post really was about self segregation and the observations about a small number of Hindus on a particular street.

      Hindus are still aliens. How many do you want before there are too many? How do you think they will treat us if they become ten or twenty percent of the population? Will there come a point when there is enough of them that they won’t let us eat cows any more? How about when they start to kill people who eat cows like they do in India. How about when they won’t hire your children because they favour their own kind?

      All the polite minorities are polite because they are a minority. Wait until they aren’t.

      • OK we are not turning this into a slagging match. So lets keep it civil.

        Hindus have been great immigrants end of story.

    Snow is just white privilege anyway. #blacksnowmatters
