Raciality or Racism : U. S. Congress Reports about U. S. Trade from Sept 2009 - Are "Third World Nations" despicable ?? - Useless Backward Nations ??
My source are reports of the U. S. Congress - See link and explanations at the bottom of this page.
This has happened many times in my life :
I love to talk about Economics, Trade, Currencies, Perspectives and Prospectives. Coffee Tables, cafes, anywhere or in Internet
White American and European Friends ( Good Kind Friends, non-Racists ) always tell me this mantra or catchword :
"Why are you so concerned with Developping Nations ?? ... That is useless and a waste of time. They don't count, they are unimportant !!"
"Don't talk me about Latin Currencies or African Currencies", "I don't want to hear about those unimportant despicable things"
This behaviour is a "Cultural Meme", "Hereditary Acculturation", Brain Areas that are connected for Automatic Response, Synapsis between Neurons that are hard wired and hardened or fossilized.
But have you ever thought about this ??
For our grandparents China was an extremely poor nation in 1950 ! ... China is now the main trade partner of the USA and increasing the proportion or percentage in U. S. Trade, while Canada and Europe have decreased that percentage in the last 8 years.
Latin America is the second most important U. S. Partner in Trade
Latin America obtains 19.6% of U.S. Trade ( Exports plus Imports )
European Union 18.9%
European Union displaced Canada, and Latin America displaced both of them
Africa's trade with the U. S. is the fastest growing percentage and is now 4.2%, if it continues increasing at that pace, then it will be very important in the future.
China is the Terrible Giant and "Sleeping Dragon of Trade", a Gulliver surrounded by Little Liliputians
