The car you drive, the clothes you wear, the gadgets you use, the food you eat...there's bound to be imports somewhere in the mix. Our markets wouldn't be as diverse if it wasn't for these "foreign imports".

you need what the people or the merchandise? As for the people,you do need them because they come to your country and do the jobs you don't want to do. I'm not being rude its just they will gladly do your dirty work because its better then where they came from. for that reason they get my respect. Same foes for the merchandise, it makes sense to import. It cost to much to make because our standard of living is to high

Wanting your country to produce it's own products and not accept those of other countries is not racist. Perhaps you should take the time to educate yourself on the meaning of racism before you throw the word around like the morning paper.

Possibly. "We should all be deported" is the verbiage, though. Sounds more like OP is referring to people because of the "we" in that specific instance. The rest of the FML seemingly implies that he is speaking about products, though.

43- You don't understand. Foreign imports are made by foreigners, as in they are made in other countries and then bought into another. The only thing you can deport is the product because it's all made in another country. That "we" must have been a grammar mistake because it does not fit with anything else.

43 is spot on the money. It sounds like OP is making reference to all those using the imported products. The "we" is referring to the people not the imported product. Deporting all those who do not buy locally made products.

47- I do understand, actually. You are aware that people can be deported, right? Not just products? If it was actually a grammar error, the mods would have fixed it by now. I'm not saying I agree with the original comment that started this thread, I was simply clarifying its meaning.

@ 34: That's still not even racism. Not even close. That's called playing by the rules . . . but then again the OP is from South Africa so I think you're just some kid who doesn't know better.
