“But people are not beetles …”.”

“After identifying my Asian side as Japanese, it has not been uncommon to hear that, “that’s the best.” Excuse me? Apparently the impetus to rank extends to the country level as well.

“And since we are migratory by nature, we mix as we migrate. Some migrations are by choice and some are by force. The force can be the slave trade, war, climate or economic – hence the terms war refugee, climate refugee and economic refugee. Economic policies also constantly change and affect trade agreements, tariffs and embargoes – creating push and pull effects on migration patterns.” -Glenn Robinson
