If you're either english, scottish or welsh I would like to know whether you consider British born Pakistanis/Bangladeshis to be a true part of british society or do you still consider them as either 'inferior' or 'foreign.'
Of course I view them as equally British as I am. It would be totally ridiculous not to.
In fact a British Asian person is also English, Scottish or Welsh if they choose to define themselves as such. Being a nationality of one of the constituent countries of the UK is not limited to white people, or any other race, to claim so would be just plain daft.
If they feel British then they're British to me, I don't care either way, some of my mates see their Asian identity as more important, some see British as more important, most balance it pretty well but it's no business of mine. They're no less British than me anyway I'm more Irish than English, my grandparents were immigrants and so were theirs so who am I to judge
What a strange question. Asians tend to be more tradition oriented, family oriented and can be a bit insular. But the key word there is 'tend' - personality isn't controlled by skin colour. And I certtainly don't consider them inferior...
of course they are equal, and of course they are are british if they have birtish citizenship and passport. they can do whatever they want as long as they speak english. Preferably they will make efforts to intergrate with causian/black people etc but ultimately they can do whatever they want as long they speak english and abide by the law.
I don't think of them as being any different than caucasians.
And although I feel a few of the students at my University who are Pakistani act childish and as if they are better than anyone else (one kid, during first year chemistry, kept skipping the queues to the Fume Hoods to pick up chemicals when there were six or seven pairs waiting in line that he ignored.)
I know that there are plenty of white kids who act the same.

The majority of the asians I've been exposed to have acting like they were part of their own little community and not integrated at all. So those ones are not productively British in my opinion.
Why the measly mouthed qualitive "productively" ?
If you want to say they're not British, at least be a man enough to actually say what you think.
