Expats vs immigrants

Why are white people expats when the rest of the population are immigrants ?

Surely any person going to work outside their country is an expatriate? But no, the word exclusively applies to white people

Just a thought for today

Er, because those with the power to do so and make it stick made the rules there?
I wasn’t aware that the word ‘expatriate’ is only applicable to whites.

I’d love to hear what the rest gotta say on this matter. Gonna be interesting....drinking
If your suspect as that.. then it is considered as … DISCRIMINATION!

doh crying very mad crying doh
I always thought an "expat" was a person living/working in another country without the intention of immigrating to that country. Having been an "expat" myself, I've never knowen the term "expat" to be singularly applied to those of European decent. But what do I know? dunno
Why are liberals so desperate to avoid class politics? It's bourgeoisie, not white, and the overlap between bourgeoisie and non-white is becoming greater every year. It's never been more to treat bourgeoisie and white as synonymous.

Anyway what the expat is is as a norm is more economically valuable than the typical citizen of the host country.
more wrong to treat*
Not really. Where I'm at everyone is an expat. Only the locals (Emiratis) are citizens and are given benefits. There is no citizenship here for expats, even if their kids were born here.
