The stigma we carry

Re: Chinese influence in Samoa 

We as an ethnic group carry a stigma with the outside world from NZ, Australia and in the US. 

To them, we ethic Samoans, are dumb people. The prime minister and PS Jeffrey here are prime examples. 

I explained to a white man about this immigration thing with Chinese and he looked at me and asked simply; ‘’You only have a small piece of rock, why would you invite people from a country a million times bigger than yours to take up your space?”. 

I explained the logic by the government as promoted by BS Jeffrey here. And he frowned and said; “Are your people that dumb that you need foreigners to teach you how to survive?” 

Are we BS Jeffery?
