I have bought and sold property in London, Gold Coast and Melbourne. So
have other Goans, Malyasians, Chinese and Vietnamese and other non-white
people, resident or non-resident, citizens or non-citizens. There are no
WASP-only localities -the first time I have heard it mentioned, was by you. Blah blah.

Halleluja, I am saved. I am convinced. The pro-west chest thumpers have
finally made me see the light of the day.
*There is no racial prejudice in the West or Australia*
Also read the posts of Mario G in similar vein.
Your halleluja may be premature. You haven't been saved from anything yet as we continue to inform you about things you see mis-informed about.
For example, your latest poppycock is a gross misrepresentation of what Gabriel and I have written and taken totally out of context.
Gabriel and I were responding to your previous poppycock about foreign immigrants being unable to live and buy property anywhere in Australia or the US. Both Gabriel and I explained that we could buy properties wherever we could afford them without having to worry about being foreign immigrants.
I don't recall anyone talking about "no racial prejudice in the West and Australia".
There are stupid and prejudiced people in all countries, including Goa.
But then can someone explain to me why so many Indian students in Australia
are being abused and killed, or so many Indian students being killed in good ole U S of A? or the 'dots' group that killed Indians because they wore bindis? Or Canadian children of Goan origin who call their parents PAKIs (I have actually witnessed this) Why is the term PAKI derogatory? Why if you are dark skinned and spout Spanish you are likely to be called a 'SPIC? A lot of Goans could be classified as spics.
People are being killed by common criminals everywhere. No one is focusing on Indians who may be victims from time to time.
Paki is a short form for Pakistani. The kids of your Canadian friends are simply disrespectful spoiled brats. Blacks were called "niggers" and whites are called "honkies". Calling someone of a different background or race names is no different than Goans calling non-Goans "bhaile" and "ghantis", etc.
Like I said above there are a few stupid and prejudiced people everywhere, including Goa. You and Samir are obviously prejudiced against NRGs.
This has nothing to do with were we can live or buy property, which was your original false charge.
I wonder what you will try to use next.
In the meantime, unlike the developed countries that Tony is obsessed about, Goa is going to the proverbial dogs, while a couple of RGs are busy attacking NRGs.
