I’m not racist…
I was thinking over the weekend about how bias my Blog must seem to some people. I’m pretty sure a lot of you think I’m in denial, or even blinded to the many injustices that take place in this country.
That’s not it at all. I know all the dirty stuff; I’d love to see some changes made in certain areas. I’m well aware of the discrepancies that take place on day to day bases here; the racism, the sexism; and the absurd use of ‘wasta.’
The point of my Blog isn’t the trash the rest of the world or make living in the UAE seem like a life of luxury for just about anyone who has been graced enough to get here. The point is to balance all the other negative bullshit people are blogging about when it comes to this beautiful place.
People complain too much. They center on the bad points and tend to forget the good. It’s simply not alright for me; because a clear picture of what living here is really all about is never seen in most blogs. Mine probably isn’t all that clear either. Maybe I do make living in the emirates look like peaches and cream; and it’s my right to do this.
The way I see it, if one person comes across your blog, and then follows on to mine; maybe the picture they’ll form is more realistic than either yours or mine on an individual bases.
I had one hell of a weekend. And I sure have a lot to say. But for now; I need to calm the fuck down over the racist son of a bitch who assaulted on the street this morning.
