    How do you think the little kids going to turn out with a "dad" like that?

    Blimey. Not surprised it was London again, the poor cannot afford to live there any more.

    Something needs to be done about these racist and islamophobic ignorant people.

    Muslims are seen as different and weak,they shouldn't accept this and stand up against this nonsense.

    Or find out what is making people angry and try and address the issues.
    Making someone 'angry' justifies racism?

    They deliberately pick on weak people to take their racism out. Notice how both attacks were on women (pregnant as well) and a disabled man. I'd like to see them say this to a 20 something man.

    On what basis do you say that? Would you say the same is true for the man he abused in the video?

    It's very likely he's a second/third generation immigrant.
    As the man in the video was speaking with a accent that wasn't English it's easy to say he isn't English

    But just because someone is a 3rd generation immigrant doesn't make them one

    I have no idea what this means.

    What I said in my original post, and reaffirm, was that the black man's parents (or grandparents) probably didn't come from a stable, prosperous country, so it is hypocrisy and ignorance beyond belief for the black man to say that the man he called Turkish can't go back to Turkey because of "the bombs" etc.

    I am a white male who has been racially abused on buses before so yes its not the stereotypical white people only racists.

    What is annoying is some of the responses assuming he must be on benefits, so racism=bad but nasty stereotypes about all bad people are on benefits = ok?!

    making someone angry cause them to lash out in way people don't behave normally

    But say for instance the old man said something racist to him and this started the argument could in this instance you understand the response?

    And I'm still not sure what was said was racist. I heard him attack his faith and be rude about his family but what did he say that was actually racist.

    Har har.

    No, i don't. And i don't care. All i know is that he's a disgusting racist and islamaphobe and that's enough :yy: Why are you sticking up for him anyway :curious:
    Yes I know right

    what did he say that was Islamophobic?

    I'm not sticking up for him I'm simply trying to understand the issue and what caused the argument.

    Exactly. They think Muslims women are weak because apparently Islam treats them as second class citizens. Despicable. Muslims need to unite against islamophobia,everyone does and racism

    When did anyone say it was only white people?

    He most definitely is on benefits. You can tell.

    Are you being retarded on purpose? Or are you actually this stupid? From what I've seen of your posts I'm inclined to favour the latter.

    Where his parents come from is irrelevant and has no bearing on the issue (unless you are going to argue the children of immigrants born in this country should be considered as immigrants themselves)

    Nobody said only whites are racist. Why do people keep repeating this over and over again

    It is relevant insofar as it exposes (and reaffirms) the ignorance and hypocrisy of the black man, for the reason I gave above.

    I'm asking what was said that was 'Islamophobic'

    But as you seem to go for the personal attack I take it you're not a fan of the questioning mind. Which is odd given this is a student forum.

    Only if you are a member of the BNP

    Where his parents or grandparents come from is completely irreverent to what he said.
