Actually this was something I used to think about.


I don't feel intimidated because they are an ethnic minority/difference race, but if I perceive them as having had a more difficult life than I have had, then yes I do feel a little bit like that. An example would be a Syrian refugee who comes to this country with nothing aged 18, keeps in shape, starts his own successful business but maintains that ruggedness to become a sort of cultured thug or intelligent wildman, I have nothing but respect for such people.

Not ethnic minorities specifically, no. But I do feel kinda bad when I see somebody who's had an easier life than mine get stuck into a positive feedback cycle whereby he does well on something, gets endless praise for it and then uses the praise to motivate himself to do well on something else, and so on. I suppose it's one of those childish 'it's not fair!' instincts I haven't managed to suppress yet.

Not at all, good for them. I take them as inspirations for self-improvement.
