I just saw a side of my mum that Ive never seen before, she was talking about the world cup and how England are going through but Scotland might not and she said "They cant be better than us, thier English". And she proceeded to rant about how the English are this and that. What has happened to her? I nevr thought she felt that way.
Maybe shes just being patriotic?
i suggest you look up that word in the dictionary. you'll notice it cant, and will never, apply to what you said about your mum.
nah its not racist...no offence to any scots here, but they do tend to me more nationalist than the english...no bad thing.
Are the Scots and English the same race? Remember race as a based of skin colour is a fairly modern idea. "Race" used to be based on genes and ethnicity, but has been perverted for social and political ends.
I'm suspicious of nationalists, or anybody who needs to belong to a group to feel good about themselves. But nationalism isn't always racism. I know some Indian anglophiles as well as black British patriots, so yup, nationalism isn't always to do with whether or not your skin colour matches th majority of those around you.
it's always the old togers init!!!!1
for christ sake. this is not racist at all. It just patriotic as many people mention. She just wants her favourite team to win. I would the same if i was a fan of a certain sport.
