Do you hear the people sing Lost in the valley of the night It is the music of a people Who are climbing to the light For the wretched of the earth There is a flame that never dies Even the darkest night will end And the sun will rise. They will live again in freedom In the garden of the Lord They will walk behind the plough-share They will put away the sword The chain will be broken And all men will have their reward! Will you join in our crusade? Who will be strong and stand with me? Somewhere beyond the barricade Is there a world you long to see? Do you hear the people sing Say, do you hear the distant drums? It is the future that they bring When tomorrow comes! Will you join in our crusade? Who will be strong and stand with me? Somewhere beyond the barricade Is there a world you long to see? Do you hear the people sing Say, do you hear the distant drums? It is the future that they bring When tomorrow comes! Tomorrow comes! Tomorrow comes!

"Your car is Japanese. Your Vodka is Russian. Your pizza is Italian. Your kebab is Turkish. Your democracy is Greek. Your coffee is Brazilian. Your movies are American. Your Beers are German. Your shirt is Indian. Your oil is Saudi Arabian. Your electronics are Chinese. Your numbers -Arabic, your letters -Latin. And you complain that your neighbor is an immigrant? Pull yourself together! like if you're against racism."
Automobiles are German in origin. Vodka is Polish. According to Hungy, pizza is Chinese (in any case, the modern form was first created by a FRENCH chef in Italy). Kebabs are Egyptian. Our democracy is closer to the model established by the Weimar Republic. Coffee comes from Africa, and was popularised in the Middle East. India has the largest film market in the world. Beer is Egyptian. My shirt is Chinese. My crude oil is more likely to be OPEC than Saudi Arabian specifically. My electronics are Japanese. Our numbers are actually Indian. Our letters come from the Greeks.
I don't mind immigrants, but you're damned ignorant.
