Kicked to the Curb

I know White people supposedly run the world but in some neighborhoods, we are just homeless.  I’m in a Starbucks now and everyone here is either Asian or (I think) Jewish and they look at D and I like we’re something stuck on their shoe.  I look outside and see White homeless people walking by.

The United States has purposely dumbed down our population, aided and abetted drug lords to bring drugs into this country, then allowed smart Asian and Indian people to take the tech jobs and allowed Mexicans and South Americans to take the lower skilled jobs.  It doesn’t leave much for White Americans does it?

We are like buggy whips.  No longer needed.  It sucks watching us be replaced.

PS.  If you think I’m a “racist” for caring about this…don’t bother griping to me about it.  I make no apologies for caring about my own people.

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    I agree with you , but wait, things will get worse, wait until our government approves thousands of refugees from the middle east to come to live with us, they are coming with all the expenses paid for ( by us ), transportation to the US, housing,food,schooling,medical attention + a monthly salary etc, etc for doing NOTHING, & girl, there are thousands of them coming, Obama wants to bring 10.000, but Hillary plans for them to be 65.000.. no big deal, eh ?? I don’t want to think about how many potential terrorists there are in those thousands of people…
    USA is going down the drain with these sort of policies, sad, VERY SAD !!

    Gracious! You’ve got dangerous ideas. You should be grateful for the job. America is the land of freedom and opportunity. If you can’t get rich here, it is your own fault.

    The USA is a strange country. People are infinitely replaceable here. I do not think that any sort of patriotism is compatible with the love of money.

    Maureen, I am really starting to think that those of us that can’t fit into the very narrow constraints of our current economy are meant to just slip away quietly and die.

    It is easier and easier to just fall all the way out of good employment and never find a way back in.

    Regionally, here on the west coast, I’m north of you, we’re seeing what you described. Other areas of the country, surely different sorts of issues. Where I’m at, north of the northernmost Big City, it is still very rural and homogenous. White people are still the main work force except in agriculture where our citizens of Mexican origin hold all the jobs.

    For folks like me, poor, white, but educated and sober, we really just hang around the fringes, picking up gigs here and there. There really are only a very few paths left to me to reenter paid employment and unfortunately, my mental health really cannot handle the things I would have to do.

    What Ryu said above is interesting. Americans hold onto this myth of American opportunity so hard that we are not changing our attitudes to reflect the realities of our particular brand of capitalism.

    We are going to have to make some sort of decision soon, as a society, as to what we are going to do with all the people who just don’t fit into the emerging and changing job market.

      Angela, you have made an outstanding assessment of the situation we’re going thru & the outdated believes of some of our citizens regarding ‘US land of opportunities’, unfortunately ‘ the land of opportunity ‘ began changing( and going down-the-drain ) in the 1980’s when our manufacturers one after another migrated to other countries & left us with a deficit of millions of jobs. NO jobs, NO money to spend, businesses closing, people to unemployment, less money, more business closing & so on…
      Technology is amazing, but those whom can’t ‘ catch up with it are pretty much restricted to manual labor which is low paid & the market is already saturated by people that doesn’t mind to make $7 + dollars an hour for in their countries they probably make $ 7 dollars @ week.

      It’s sad & discouraging to think America is not longer the powerful country it used to be & chances are it will never go back to those ‘ good old times ‘.

    • Maureen, Living in a Van says:

      Thank you Angela for your thoughts on this. On a personal level I am still fighting to be viable but I see many around me slipping away quietly and sometimes not so quietly. I am, perhaps naively, hoping that a different type of President might bring jobs back to this country. I’m not holding my breath though.

      • Ryu says:

        I have found that the real change occurs when one gives up that hope, Maureen.

        Our presidents do not come from the working class. If one has to be a billionaire to make a few controversial quotes, it’s already over in the land of the free. No “conventional” president can save America.

      • lucy says:

        There is a project called ‘ Reshoring project ‘ by which it is proposed to bring many – if not all – of those manufacturers that abandoned US to install themselves in other countries; theoretically talking looks good & it makes sense, however it will required lots of coordination, re-training, $$ resources etc, this could bring thousands of jobs back to us, but… many believe that this project – unfortunately -will not fly.

  4. lucy says:

    OOPSSSS, it is not ‘ Reshoring project ‘, but ‘ Reshoring Initiative ‘

  5. Them says:

    This is just a crazy theory.

    • Maureen, Living in a Van says:

      I know what I’m seeing with my own eyes.

    • lucy says:

      It surely could be a crazy theory, however, when some people ( long ago ) talked about flying to the moon, some said: ‘ it will never happen ‘ !!

      Never say NEVER !!

    I am glad to see you posting again, whatever the subject! I live in the south on the east coast and here the white folks are large and in charge, in California when I lived there in the late 1970’s it was the white gay men and Asians who seemed to own everything. Women are second class citizens in our society, whatever your race, I will tell you that. Being a white haired older woman, at least in the south, people are very polite, open doors and don’t beep at me for going too slow once they see my white hair. I think California is a very hard place to be, it is so diverse, such a melting pot. And the whole American dream thing has taken a tumble in the last 30some years. Just keep on keeping on and doing the best you can, that is all any of us can do. HUGS from NC!

    • Maureen, Living in a Van says:

      Hi Ruthie! It was so nice to hear from you. I think I would fit in very well in a nice old-fashioned southern town. They white hair is coming in fast for me!

  7. Seems to be a lot of truth in your article. If People care to look around we can we have 3rd rate national government according to deeds, and difination. We also have a caste system without empathy. With the internet take over business transactions it makes small businesses tuffer on those that do not change, and adapt. Corporations are now going all out in all fronts with their ability to control the market place for such a long time, and their pollution of the political system (Bribes). This will be year of political change around the world. If anyone noticed already, People have lost faith in their governments. It is time to do sit ins peacefully as a vow. Do not be with anger like the Police ( old paradym) military force in our cities. Some of us will come together regardless of background, or race. When these prejudices are let go, and realize that the debt can never never be paid back except thru an equity swap, and keep these principles in mind with the teachable in the moment held dear so that we can be of One Spirit to evolve all humans on Earth then we will come to new level of greatness on the planet.

    • Maureen, Living in a Van says:

      Hi Chris, thanks a lot for your comment. I agree with much of it and disagree with some of it. I don’t think all humans will ever come together in One Spirit. This carrot was held out to Americans and we’ve been chasing it for a very long time to no avail. Why do I say this? Because so-called minorities (White people are ACTUALLY a minority on planet earth) are still griping that we don’t do enough for them even though they have a better standard of life in Western Countries than they do in their homelands! And remember how ending apartheid was going to create a wonderful world for everyone in the country of South Africa? Well as it turned out when Black people were handed power, they began taking revenge on White South Africans and also have been taking their land by violent means!

      So no…there will never be One Spirit.

      Also peaceful sit-ins will not work UNLESS the establishment feels an implied threat. Do you really think evil, greedy people can be coaxed, shamed or scolded into doing the right thing?

      I’m glad you commented though and I hope you’ll come back again.
