I am a guatemalan
I've been called
> R A R E
by some of you
So there must be an absence of guats on this board
In ligt of that: I am a guat, AMA
Devuelvannos nuestro oro!
Mixed, but i personally don't resent spain because it failed economically and lost all 'big bad world power' quality in my mind.
I also have a spanish friend and i love me some spicy spanish memes
> igual qur toda centroamerica
opinion de panama? quiero saber que piensa la gente de por alla
I'm not on my computer sorry
Guatemalas golden ages were
> before the spaniards
> 1944 - 1954, when true socialist revolution made the economy boom and gave farmer peasants ownership of the land they worked
I like the people, the culture, the banter, the fact that we could fuck all of central america
I dislike the government and anti-nationalistic sentiment of some people.
Also some folks are racist agains the indigenous people and i think that's anti nationalistic
ustedes son el ano de centroamerica
por lo menos no somos la puta de estados unidos
mainly, guats speak real spanish, no gay accent
we are the biggest economy in CA
we are just better, even if saying that is new york city syndrome, and were just the same as the others
>why do guatemalans have anglo names like kevin, brian and shit like that?
that's not only guatemlans's thing though there are many brazilians with anglo names you know? probably they think anglo names are cool
toda la agresividad jaj. bueno, eso depende de como definas "puta de estados unidos".
tomando en cuenta que les hicimos ceder su gema de ingenieria, mientras a ustedes se los violaron tan duro que aún no se levantan y tienen que irse a mendigar por allá arriba
en un par de años seremos la economia mas grande de america central
You don't see that as often as in central america you retard
here people like to name their kids with stupid names that they invented like yuvitza o amairani but there is quite common.
Trust me i live near to the border with Guatemala
Lower class people name their kids weird bastardizarions of american names
> el kebin
> el brayan
I guess it's similar to how blacks nametheir kids ghetto names
It makes them seem international i guess
These names are associated with lower class and delinquency, so normal people tend not to use them as much
One thing i hate about chiapas it's the people ... "Usos y Costumbres" it's fucking ludicrous, BTW i hate those sellers that put some ropes in order to stop cars and sell some things
1. What is Guatemala's rightful clay?
2. Describe to me the noteworthy differences between the Central American countries.
3. Summarize the general mindset of your countrymen.
4. How strong is the SJW influence in Guatemala?
5. What's currently being discussed in Guatemalan media with respect to internal politics? As in, any scandals, constitutional changes, things of that sort, etc.
6. How huge of a deal is it that your country elected a non-politician as president? Would you equate it to as big a deal as if the US elected Trump?
7. Worst thing about your nation? Best thing?
No, no soy pobre
> rightful clay
All of central america
We talk good spanish and have mayan culture, better military and more diverse climates
> gringo lovers
Most people are normal tho
Limited to upper class, and even then it's unpopular, as we are very male dominated
> internal political dialogue
Getting rid of corruption
I care more about farmer peasants' rights tho
> new pres
No one cares, it's a joke
He's not as strong a meme as trump, as he doesn't propose any radical policies
> worst thing
Anti nationalism and self hate
> best thing
Food, people and banter
What is your opinion of the US?
Do large parts of the population still speak some mayan languages as their primary means of communication?
Do you like it there?
Would you like to move somewhere else?
Do you have hope that your country will improve in time?
Resent them for fucking us in a 40 year civil war
Admire them for military prowess and nationalism
> mayan languages
Very much alive, up to 45% speak them
> do i like it
I love it, wouldn't trade it for the world
No, only temporarily to germany or finland
I plan to be directly involved in improving the country
>Resent them for fucking us in a 40 year civil war
fair enough, Arbenz seemed like a good guy and I think the country would be much better if he stayed in power and wasn't ousted in a US coup. I recently saw a pew research statistic about US popularity around the world and I was honestly surprised that the US is so popular despite the fact that they fucked your country over. Why do you think this is? I would guess lack of education but maybe it is something else. http://www.pewglobal.org/2002/12/04/chapter-4-global-publics-view-the-united-states/
>I plan to be directly involved in improving the country
Also left/right wing or do you see it as an outdated model. Describe what you want to happen in your country.
People like the US because consumer products and entertainment.
Indigenous farmers, especially old ones still resent them
Arbenz was top nigger
Either by getting into politics, or working with peasant communities
Or by leading a revolutionary war
> left, right?
I think the left/right paradigm in the US is fucked.
I beleive in workers' ownership of the means of production, but i hate other "leftist" cuck memes like sjw shit
>I would guess lack of education but maybe it is something else
its called propaganda, if you keep telling everyone you are the best, the moral compass, and mass produce movies, you can rape anyone at free will apparently
> I plan to be directly involved in improving the country
good fellow. i forgive you for your stupid agressive ignorance
>Arbenz was top nigger
So you have a negative opinion of him? Why?
>I beleive in workers' ownership of the means of production, but i hate other "leftist" cuck memes like sjw shit
well you can be a Marxist and not be a sjw, that's mainly bourgeois leftism.
Yeah I guess, lesser educated people are much more susceptible to propaganda. I'm guessing you dislike the US too, they really fucked over your country. Do you feel overall US influence in Latin America is dwindling or do you feel you are still puppets?
Guatemalans here in the states are the stingiest people. I've seen them get a hand basket, grab a pack of corn tortillas, can of beans, some cheap cut of beef, then they get to the beer aisle. They'll grab a 40oz of Budweiser and just hide the meat on a shelf and then go cash out.
Oh ok, sorry just misunderstood the phrase top nigger.
Sad that he was overthrown though, could have been nice if he stayed in power. Are there any mainstream parties/politicians that try to follow in his footsteps and make similar reforms?
Yeah I guess a threat of a US coup must be quite scary, do you think they would still try a coup today if some really left wing people got in power? (probably a more subtle coup than in the 50's though)
i have nothing to say about migrants
they are not true guatemalans to me, as they do not live and experience guatemala directly
they are needed to provide for their families, though, so i dont form an opinion either way
I definitely agree, unfortunately people around the globe still have a overall positive opinion of them, only the in the middle east does >50% of the population dislike the US (in terms of regions, you can find non ME countries that hate the US)
American English is the bee's knees. If you go to England where it all began you'll hear a butchered version of it. Shit even Canadians from big cities can pass of people in Los Angeles.
