    My dear fellow seeing that you aren't under the influence of any narcotics you have no excuse. I fear that you may well lack what we call an intellect.

    He is lacking an intellectual person?

    The correct grammar is "I fear that you may well lack what we call intellect".

    If you are going to insult someone, at least get it right.

    I am a so-called ethnic minority but have never really had problems. Except for one time when a woman at a bar called me a muslim. I have green eyes and dark blonde hair I'm half white (German) and half black (Cuban) so I looked mixed so I don't know what on earth she was thinking.

    I'll be honest these terrorists pee me off not just because they are evil but it seems every time they do something in the name of their false god then other non-muslim minorities have to pay part of the backlash from the community and we can't hide behind the 'our religion is peaceful' banner either because it's not even our religion or culture!
    I know

    I have more time for your average "non native" British person who fully embraces British culture than I do your average "native" British person, I get a feeling of great pride when I see people of all colours waving the flag, or doing things that you would consider "British"

    As for people who make no attempt to integrate in the slightest, I don't give a **** about them, and I wish they weren't here.

    Simple as that. I think many people are more than willing to accept people from different cultures, and we should be multicultural, but revolving around one culture.

    I know it's hard to say exactly what "British values" are, and people obviously love to make fun of Tory politicians when they say that but it is disingenuous, people know the sentiment of what they mean, and in my opinion it really is something that should be encouraged.

    Eurgh. People are idiots. Am ashamed to be British myself because of this. Criticising individual Muslims IS racist (if indeed you are a Muslim and even if you are not) but criticising Islamic doctrine is not. All ridiculous ideas be they religious or not deserve ridicule but individual religious people are not the issue here. We are all fallible and should be very glad that is the case.

    Muslim = Religion

    Muslim =/= Race

    Also the OP is not Muslim.

    You said the criticizing individual Muslims is racist. But it can't be as Muslim is not a race.

    In northern ireland we have to deal with the protestant/catholic divide, just up the road from me a middle aged man, father of five, was dragged out of his house at 10:00 pm and was shot dead in his garden, this was at the start of the week.

    I know I am being ironic hence ... "Am ashamed to be British myself because of this."

    Similarly... of course we have free will, we have no choice but to.

    (Apparently my intended sarcasm doesn't come across well)

    To clarify... of course Islam is not a race but attacking individual Muslims - and people who "appear" to be Muslim - IS Islamophobic. Attacking ridiculous ideas in any religion (like misogyny in Islam) IS NOT.

    I oppose bigotry in all forms be they religiously motivated or otherwise. I don't know how I can make this any clearer.

    Time and a place of course but ridiculous ideas demand ridicule be they religious or not. To do otherwise is to act as an enabling Mafia wife.
