    That's an awful experience Didn't anyone in the shop defend you? They can be arrested for what they did. I had to stand up for my Italian friend when these guys where shouting "go back home" Call the police if it happens again we have a zero tolerance to racism and anyone who goes against this rule should have their citizenship taken away from them. A lot of us brits love the multi-cultural society we live in shame some **** heads spoil it.
    Everybody was just looking,I think aswell with what happened in France,people didn't want any confrontation. I was almost about to cry to be honest,ive never felt so embarrassed in my whole entire life

    Blame the media? You mean blame the extremists... otherwise the media would have nothing to report.
    Yes the media is a powerful tool,indeed.

    Also half Chinese, half German. There is a lot of racists around, but I have been desensitized a long time ago. The ones I have met tend to be the skinhead and EDL variety, generally poorly educated and brought up people.

    As for acceptance I don't give a damn, if they don't accept me then **** them, if they do then good.
    *hi-5* I've been feeling like this too.

    Firstly, Queen Bee, you look white to me, so I do not understand why they would even come up to you.

    Secondly, what makes someone white these days? Is this specifically Anglo-Saxons? or the rest of Europe? What is defined as white?

    Terribly confused.
    Ask the racist *******s
    To me,I would consider somebody white if they were Anglo Saxons or if they were from countries like Germany,France etc

    So basically you're saying Italians, Spaniards and what you probably term "slavic" peoples aren't white? What gives you the right to decide who belongs and who doesn't?

    I had always presumed that it included most european countries, ranging from Sweden, Norway, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, All Yugoslavian Countries, Belgium, Holland,Germany, France, England, Russia, Poland and so on?

    Is this wrong?
    That list is spot on
