NO, you are not the center of the universe!

If you are one of those who like to talk about nationalities, or about excluding others because they are foreigners, check this video…

No, you are not the center of the universe. And no, the guy from “wherever you want” (place here things like England, Spain, USA, Argentina, China, Japan, Chad, Congo, Sierra Leona, or what the fuck you want to write there) is not a foreigner. In fact, he is just the guy next door, so It´d great if you start treating him as your brother…

As a friend reminded me a couple of days ago:

You have a Jewish, Asian, or Islamic god. Your car comes from Japan but drinks Arabian black gold. You eat Italian pizza and warm your house up with Algerian Gas. You drink Brazilian or Colombian coffee in the morning, and Belgian beer in the night. You spend your spare time in Morocco, Thailand or France, and you read this words with your “made in China” computer, through a “made in USA” network. You count with Arabian numbers, and talk with Latin words.

Then tell me… How do you dare to call your neighbor a foreigner?
