tej zag moob dlawb yeej coob tshaaj los mad. tabsis moob dlawb kaam ua hab kaam nrug luag tej sib tw laiv. moob leeg tsawg zog tag. tabsis leeg tsis kam moog ua le moob dlawb ua. tsawg tsawg tug txhaj kaam xwb. moob leeg mas ntshai txaaj muag, ho moob dlawb ces tsis ntshai txaaj leej twg qhov muag le. nuav yog kuv kev xaav.
that is why you have white hmong figure running all sorts of positions, organizations, etc. or course you will see a few green here and there but its rare that they are the one at the front line.
Kuv lam dlaag xwb mas...kuv twb tsis yog moob leeg le.
I'm half Hmoob Dawb(Father)/half Moob Leeg (Mother, most of my childhood, I grew up speaking Moob leeg half of the time. Now it's very rusty...I'm just a fake now
) But I got my "laidbackness" and laziness from my mom. My dad is more aggressive and ambitious.
I've noticed that generally, Moob Leeg tend speak English better, no? There's many Moob Leeg individuals who are also very much out there and they seem to do well outside outside of the Hmong community as well. You see people in the government are Hmoob Lees like MN state rep Cy Thao
and Senator Mee Moua
. There's also councilman Blong Xiong
from Fresno and others I forget their names and don't know much about. I don't see too many Moob Leeg, but I never would have thought that they would generally be like how you described them. I guess yourself being an actual Moob Leeg, would know more than me about that though.
I really don't know.
