But, I was responding the other's generalizations: My husband IS a
foreigner! He says this about Asian Indians. We are alljust people and
we are mostly cheap anyway! I'm not trying to be serious nor slam
anyone, just opening one's eyes to the long held idea that JEWISH people
are cheap. It's all how you were raised, actually. There are certain
characteristics to qualities of peoples around the world that generally
dictate their actions with others, be it money or anything else. This is
true! Your culture forms your personality and your values. Things are
very general, usually. So, anything more?
