    It is my understanding that US forced the Europeans out of colonizations, US also played a big role to end apartheid from South America

        They were enemy combatants who chose war on civilization who believe gang raping little captive girls and selling them is permissible as per their faith. It was a service to humanity to annihilate ISIS, wouldn’t you agree?
        The biggest favour done to the Islamic world was to free them from clutches of barbaric murderous ISIS

          Imagine what if a son or daughter of a black/Indian immigrant becomes the president or vice president of the Saudi or UAE or Qatar!!

          oh wait, those places do not have presidents or vice presidents, just hereditary leachers! never mind.....

          I'm either at work, in gym, working in the garden, or in my beautiful wife's arms!

            Colonization - yes. They opposed it, though not very actively.
            Slavery - no. They were one of the last Western countries to abolish it, after a civil war.
            Apartheid - no. They supported the apartheid regime as an ally in the Cold War. Only after the Cold War ended they let it go.

              Let alone a leadership position just imagine if a Bengali worker fell in love with a Saudi girl? Saudis and Emirates have imprisoned their own princesses and they fear for life from their fathers and brothers. I think they are abusing their own daughters and sisters as well.

                Dude, no offense but verbal abuse hardly qualifies you to compare yourself to the beaten and the downtrodden, lol. Life is difficult if you're a migrant worker in the middle east. especially if you have no trade skills. Unlike in the west, where people doing "dirty jobs" get remunerated handsomely, a garbage man in Kuwait earns less than $200 a month, has his passport confiscated upon arrival, is forced into a 3 year contract with his employer, is crammed into a roach infested studio apartment with about 19 other people all of whom share the same toilet, has no say in when he gets to go back home, gets routinely mistreated by his superiors, etc... and $200 is not even remotely enough to survive here, let alone be sending money back home to your family.

                Unless you're working upper management or run a successful business, life in this region can be very, VERY difficult.
                Don’t underestimate verbal abuse. Sure, the bruises don’t show on the body but those bruises damage humans emotionally. Salary alone is not an indicator of emotional well being. I was the happiest when I was earning near minimum wage. Also the bruises on the body heal way faster. I’ve had some bosses who only hired international students because they knew only international students would put up within their work environment. Later on I realized that employees on work visas are worse off than international students. They have far more de facto restrictions on their ability to change jobs, to travel home and basically on every major life decision. People do not talk about it because of fear of further exploitation. For example, a lady I knew casually told her boss that her husband lost his job and their entire family’s presence in the country was dependent upon her visa. Her boss used that information to exploit her by giving her tighter deadlines from then on and to routinely scold her in front of her coworkers. She started coughing blood due to the stress that built up. Several migrant workers have blogged about their ordeals anonymously but it never gets traction. The ironic thing is that some people who have been through all that and later on no longer need visas turn into the same exploiters themselves rather than showing compassion.

                  Looks like you need your boss to give you a hug lol, can you be specific as to what was said to you? That you did not do your job as expected? Does that equate to getting paid 200 dollars a month, laboring 18 hours, getting slapped, kicked, raped, humiliated?
                  There are strict laws against verbal abuse, HR departments act very swiftly against any form of abuse.
                  I deal with hundreds of people on work visa and they have grins on their faces from ear to ear, both husband wives making 70 k together, also working additional part time jobs making a good life here, most are from India, Nepal, Philippines hardly anyone from Pak, my guess is previous experiences have discouraged employers from immigrating workers from there. Thanks to bad employees who ruined it for the rest, Many employees can be bad employees also, would you agree?
