God, Europe. I just don't know.

1. Current rage: fuck you, France. The xenophobia that seems built into discussions of Roma is seriously depressing. They are, obviously, ALL thieves and villains. Erm... wait.

2. General ongoing background rage: Denmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaark. The 24 year rule isn't news, but that doesn't mean I can't continue being pissed off at it. Also, this. (Making a superhuman effort to not read the comments...)

Just for example.

I'm going to go clean something. Possibly viciously.

Did you see recently where the other Nordic countries were having a meeting to decide whether to formally reprimand Denmark because it's been deporting their citizens as well? I think one of them was something like a Swedish college student who was left by her Danish partner and even though her parents were both working in Denmark as well, she was deported back to Sweden with her toddler. The racist nationalism is pretty ugly here too, but you only have to look over there to start to feel that it's not that bad.

It's stuff like this that's always made me understand that China is the only place where I will never have to deal with shit like this. :|

My life in the West has taught me that as long as one doesn't look white, then one will always be seen as Other or foreign. Different dynamics in other places but essentially the same idea. And frankly, I'm way too Chinese to not stand out anywhere I go, really. 3:

Same problem, different location, different people. Maybe we should be helping along the one-world government if only so we don't have to deal with pettiness like this.

It disturbs me how xenophobes of Europe seem to get louder and louder these days, and how people seem to be willing to listen to them. It makes the paranoid side of me very nervous.
