the pressure on first generation children of immigrants
to prove that you are indeed proof that parents’ sacrifice was worth it
is something that many Americans will never understand
Oh darlings. You think that’s just Americans? You think that’s only the second generation? People from the third or fourth generation in France are still treated as immigrants. They are still reproached every bit of non french culture that they kept. Racism is a terrible thing.
Racism is so strong where I live that fourth and fifth and generation children are lead to believe they don’t belong there, so they come back to their grand-(grand)parents language, form groups, and throw the exact same hate back at us.
And we the ‘native’ white people are blaming them for not trying to blend in. HAHA.
