It's been my experience that the most insecure people are always the most critical and paranoid of others. My Mom was Swedish. She died in '04. Most closed minded, racist person I have ever known, God rest her soul. My Dad, her husband of 60 yrs., is Italian. One day, before she died, she said to me, "Don't you think that Swedish people are just more clean and nicer than any other people?" I was shocked! I said, "Well, that's kinda hard for me to say considering I'm half Italian!" But it really opened my eyes to just how racist she was, which, even included her husband of 60 yrs.!
