Many act the same way abroad as they do at home. The notorious Brits in Spain as a prime example. Every culture has levels of hierarchy. Every religion likewise. From the Pope sitting on high surrounded by the leading clergy in the vatican — to Cohen’s leading the service in Judaism and right through to Orthodox Chasidic Jews. Racism is stained throughout every culture and in every country. It’s embedded through traditions and learnings and unfortunately will not be gone until the world stops fighting and two generations have passed. The parents pass on the hate, the guilt, the need to have an external enemy, the ‘other’. Best to find a tribe that value friendship and embraces the differences.
