Mayweather assumed wrong with his effort to sway the Canadian crowd. Mistakingly, he considered that he could gain support by acting professionally. Also, he believed by wearing a T-shirt and a hat bearing the Canadian flag he could overshadow an Irish guy in Toronto. Many Americans assume Canada is like America! During sports, we expect contestants to try to win. Except in Canada, it’s not always about that. I made the same mistake without grasping the cultural mindset of the people. I later realized that the prerequisite was based on nationality. If you are a Canadian or not. Interestingly, even if you’re great, once you’re not a Canadian, many Canadians will root against you.
Americans judge by excellence and acclamation, Canadians judge by nationality. It is straightforward for an American to miss the point. Again, in Canada, it doesn’t matter if you possess high abilities. In fact, someone might try to replicate your knowledge. From the outside looking in you may rely on the response of Canadians who you met outside of Canada. Those ones are usually different. Many Americans assume that America and Canada share the same outlook. Not always! Or that the opportunities or recognition for hard work, wealth and achievement are the same. INCORRECT!!! Yes, there are exceptions. However, if you’re an American, there are unforeseen problems that could blindside you.
Therefore McGregor became a Canadian by default because the Irish Canadians identified with him over his nationality. So even though Mayweather was more professional”
Only if that outsider was an underdog from a country other than the United States. No matter how considerably gifter the American. You are not a Canadian. In Canada, the citizen gets automatic support because they are a Canadian. When racism sets in, you will find whites banding together. Those with the same European background go against others who are not from that European realm. For Americans, one does not possess the talent. They must have the merit, influence or attitude that is required to thrive in that situation. When they don’t, that person is toast even if they are an American.
Americans could oppose each other over a foreigner. Without considering the person’s nationality. In America, your appearance, talent, education, wealth, or abilities determine your status. Those are the things that heighten the competitive drive. As they do, the American feels compelled to win. Most of the time in other countries (including Canada) they resent Americans for that. And they often give us a big L for loser. On the one hand, Americans are more racist. Canadians rarely support an outsider within the Canadian border. This is why nearly everyone who lives there decides to naturalize. Only if that outsider was an underdog from a country other than the United States might they get some temporary support?
Yep, it doesn’t matter how awesome you are, as long as you are not a Canadian citizen, in Canada, the citizen will always gain support just because he or she is a Canadian and you are not. If you’re black, and you want to impress a lot of people in Canada, you need to look for the Caribean and African communities. People from the Caribbean and African populations do not attend baseball, basketball, soccer, or boxing matches in the number that you would see in the United States. In Canada, most of those kinds of an event including Hip Hop concerts and comedy shows are attended mostly by white Canadians.
If you’re famous, the none racist whites will find you, but you’re better off not even bringing your money bag to make it rain or the iced out chain to stunt, to be honest. This is the first place where I saw ordinary people disrespect wealth. LOL! It took me years to learn that. Flag down a random chick she will automatically assume that you’re trying to sleep with her. If you have a nice car while wearing a nice chain then its the chain and the car that made you think you can relax with her. Yep, you can’t even say hello to a stranger! Sometimes you will encounter “hatred” being taught as if it’s a virtue. *
