I wish people cared about this back when I was in high school and college... I was told to go back to my country everyday lol and everyone laugh at me. I’m kind of glad it happened now... I tend to ignore stupid. Good life lesson I guess but it was extremely derogatory when I was a kid.
Also, I don’t think his remarks are racist as the same can be said about some of of Eastern European countries. It’s just derogatory comment toward people from other countries. Which is fuged up. I despise people who say that. Brings bad memories.
Sad part... it happens a lot, still, by many Americans. You know what else feel derogatory? When people ask how long you been here in US... you say 5 years and people ask “Do you like it?” Makes you feel not a part of society. Just FYI.
