    Somalia vs Somali... I don't know. I didn't say that Arab slavery had anything to do with Islam stop jumping to conclusions. "So does what the west did to so many civilisations" you seems to think so from what you said. Why have the double standard. Racism is discriminating against someone based on the colour of their skin or their ethnic origins. Hating on white person because of something other white people have done is racism. "I think most white people are very racist" fair enough. "Crimes against humanity" I'd argue that we have amongst the least due to the fact that we invented human rights, if you mean internationally then yeah need to blame the administration. Races do not try to assert dominance, countries do and people do. White people cant help the fact that most of the worlds greatest inventions were made by them, there's no need to be intimidated. Personal gains... This is just mindless jingoism isn't it. Im sick of getting into these debate with people then realising mid way I'm arguing with an idiot. Your just a fifth column with an agenda which your willing to sacrifice all your values in order to win an argument. You are racist and you only care about your own.

    Honestly, you might have not said it but I know what you were hinting at
    Firstly the country is Somalia, the people are Somali. Simple as that.Secondly, the very instruments that you play in your highly esteemed orchestras are instruments were (mostly) first created in Africa, here's a good link on it http://infoboxdaily.com/100-things-a...ted-in-africa/ I could continue about the inventions Muslims have brought into the world and many other pocs (people of colour) have but I don't want to write you a dissertation, instead Google it Whites only became relevant when they learnt basic hygiene 250 years ago I could continue but I am not obliged to plus I've heard all of this before yawn...

    Good for you, seriously it's not a competition over who can invent the best stuff. You've got quite the chip on your shoulder... I'm beginning to think you're a troll.

    Dunno how you are coming to these conclusions tbh..
    Everything I've said so far is how I would handle the situation, you can handle it how you best see fit.
    Im not saying you're not allowed to be upset im saying that I wouldn't let a stranger make me upset.
    And I never said you weren't able to discuss it on here, I'm saying that making a thread on TSR is not going to bring the person to account because that is what you implied in a previous post.
    Again, my point of this post wasn't to bring the person to account. It was to discuss experiences. Damn...

    Funny how you treated it as one when you said "White people cant help the fact that most of the worlds greatest inventions were made by them, there's no need to be intimidated", don't worry I'm not intimidated just humoured and frankly bored of your pathetic arguments, no I'm not a troll I'm just tired stop quoting me like take a hint already

    Oh ok I get it. I wasn't upset just confused, how would that seriously offend anyone I'm not a crybaby. Why would you live in a country which you don't like the people or the culture. Why don't you Just go back to Somalia if you're so sure you're Somali.

    You're forgetting how Somalia was colonised and torn apart from each other by France, Italy and Britain so shut the hell up??? In fact there's a whole unit we're being taught called the scramble for Africa? Like is Britain even denying their attempt to control and enslave Africa as a whole?? Yes we were lynched, yes we were raped and killed in the masses but there is no way I am saying we were taken we were all enslaved but you bet as a black woman I'm going to defend us all like?? Read Warriors by Gearld Hanley tit's really good and you kinda need to be enlightened since you are really lacking basic historical knowledge like how sad
    Sorry, but Somalis were not lynched, enslaved or raped. The British did not dare get invovled in Somali affairs, and southerns made sure an Italian died if a Somali was abused. Certain Somalis helped Arabs enslave blacks.

    I do like the UK to an extent, but I don't like the system and CERTAIN people (mostly white since they're the most racist/xenophobic/islamaphobic/intolerant people I have ever come across) so YOU stop jumping to so much conclusion, and PLEASE I wish I could visit my country but we aren't all loaded with cash are we now? And read what I said in the last post and let it sink in like....omg I am identified as Somali by the UK so...

    Also this is the last time I'm quoting you so you stop quoting me after this please, thanks.

    1. Do some basic research before you lie like this
    2. Somalilander? makes a lot of sense why you talk a lot of trash about your own people
    3. Nice I know the southerners made sure their Italian oppressors who tried to enslave, rape and dominate us in our own land died like !!!! nice very nice love it!!! how are you even saying that's a bad thing? Like love yourself you are disgusting ugh
    4. Don't ever quote be again I don't want to be associated with the likes of you EVER

    *makes post about experiencing racism, has *******s turn it around and make me look like the one with the issue*
    For most white people on TSR their only experience of racial issues is being told not to be mean in assembly at school and listening to Fetty Wap whenever he comes on Radio 1. They don't know racism is still a thing, so they're being ****ty to you for saying it is. Maybe they'll grow up, maybe not.

    Certain people... You were pretty heavy on the generalisations before. 87% of the U.K. Is white therefore obviously most bigoted people are white,duh. I think from the events of last week (Islamaphobic black woman and Saudi Arabia crucifying a kids cos he's Shia) you should learn the world isn't so black and white (ironic) and that you should try and judge everyone as an individual instead of s**t stirring against the people who give you the quality of life you have. If you don't want me to reply then don't reply to this.

    1.Research what? Read Periplus of the Erythrean Ocean. Slaves were being shipped out since the 1st century BC.

    2.What have your parents being teaching you about clans? You hate me because I am from a different region :lol:

    3.I did not say it was a bad thing. Get this victim mentality out of yourself. So now colonialists tried to dominate somalis whereas before in the thread they did? Stay consistent please.

    I lived in Yorkshire where the majority were actually minorities of britain - there were lots of pakistanis to the point where they've set up shops and other pakistani things. I did not expect racism against me because they too were foreign and asians. i was so wrong, i was young back then and got called ''chink'' a lot by the pakistani kids and their parents too, it was with hatred. i cried a few times then cos i was like 6 or 7 but i got used to it and things got better anyways.

    I moved to london, and it was honestly the best place to be a minority, i didnt get racial abused there at all.

    then i moved to south wales, people give you looks here and there, especially when i was the only asian to get on a bus full of white people lol. just yesterday, i picked up my brother from school and was waiting for the bus, these two boys, unsurprisingly didnt look at all educated or nice, walked past me and murmured under their breath '' chinks go back to china town''. It didnt bother me anymore cos i been through worse in yorkshire but it made me cringe and rolled my eyes 360 degrees. thank goodness my brother doesnt really understand, he's only 8 :/

    but i find your situation very scary, that person seems so irrational. things could have gotten worse, but glad he was in the car and on the way to somewhere. I dont know how to deal with being upset over it, because all ive ever done about it is cry and just let time make me forget about it. hang out with your friends more to regain the feeling of acceptance
    you understood and cried at 6 or 7? but your brother of 8 doesn't really understand?

    I'm incredibly sorry that happened to you. I've not had outward racism in that sense but I have had some people make a few ignorant comments about my mix (half black half white). Some friends have said stupid things. One I remember recently was at uni, around a group of white people, someone told me even though I was mixed race I was no different and I was 'just like any other white person'. :facepalm:

    If I was called the N word by a random person I wouldn't care tbh.. Not saying its ok for the person to do it but I really wouldn't care about what the person thinks about me.. No stranger will have the power to make me feel upset.
    I agree with your point on this I personally wouldn't let myself get rattled because of a couple of comments from an ignorant person shouting from their car. Not to say that I tolerate point blank racism.
