Well the key strategy for outreach by the GOP seems to be getting a spray on tan, then talking "at" and "down" to Latinos. It basically comes across that the GOP feels that what the various Latino voting blocs' view points based on their entire life experiences are meaningless to the GOP; while the GOP bombards Latinos with talking points as reasons why their viewpoints mean nothing, trying to shame them into becoming Republicans. The concept of actually listening to Latinos, realizing the differences between Latino nationalities/ethnicities, and molding policies based on this to actually help them better their lives; escapes the modern GOP.

I realize it's a joke, but Asian should be jutting out of the chart and piercing the guy

I had a polish guy rant to me for 4 hours about the 17th century..

I thought most people agreed that the various peoples of the Mideast retired that particular trophy?

I've heard an interesting theory on that topic.

The Middle Eastern people (at least the tribes) are innumerate.  Any time much past "In my grandfather's memory" is the same.  "My grandfather told me the story of when".

We hear

"700 years ago, the Queegs under Sir Qwa Khan came down and slaughtered 2000 people in the village"
vs.
"4 years ago, the Queegs launched an offensive out of the mountains and shot 2000 people to death"

And go "WTF, Let it go," and they hear:

"Dwah years ago, the Queegs under Sir Qwa Khan came down and slaughtered 2000 people in the village"
vs.
"Fweet years ago, the Queegs launched an offensive out of the mountains and shot 2000 people to death"

And sort of equate the 2.


That is an interesting and retarded theory that presupposes that all Middle Easterners are unable to do so much as count their camels. It's especially interesting and retarded given the particular people involved, especially if we're going to be talking about claims dating to medieval times. I mean, sure, the medieval Muslims were stunningly advanced mathematicians who invented algebra and trigonometry, and sure, the medieval Jews were the transnational bankers of Europe, managing interest-generating accounts in virtual currencies with double-entry bookkeeping at at time when illiterate heads of state were a thing. Still, I bet everyone's just holding onto those medieval grudges because Ahmed and Yitzhak forgot how to add two and two.

Besides, grudge-holding is certainly not limited to the Middle East. Never mind Korea and China's ongoing anger over Japanese occupation in the 1930s; that's small time. China claims islands in Indonesian waters because they appear on medieval Chinese fishing maps. Vietnam still resents medieval Chinese occupation, and still puts up statues of generals and warriors who fought to evict the Chinese. In Europe, Milosevic invoked the 1389 Battle of Kosovo to justify his genocide of Bosnian Muslims. Hell, the Irish are still angry about Cromwell.

I'd say that, taking a global perspective, the notion that nationalist outrage over past slights *isn't and shouldn't be* relevant to modern policy is an aberration largely confined to Western Europe and the Anglosphere (and frankly, given the history of the past few centuries, "let's all just forget about who killed whom and stole what" is a notion those societies find especially convenient).
