    That means Brittany so your comparison kind of fails...

    I despise the place. I hate the language, attitude and general culture. My dad's a pilot so I've been lucky enough to tag along to lots of places, and I can honestly say I felt the furthest away from home in France.

    All right then,
    I wonder if, somewhere in France, there is a Frenchie on Le Salle De Student posting on a thread called 'Quest-ce je suis le seul personne qui DETESTE la grande-bretagne?' pondering if, somewhere in Britain, there is a Brit on The Student Room posting on a thread called 'Am I the only person that HATES france?' pondering his existence.

    Clean? France?

    They still have toilets that are just holes in the ground you know...
    ... Well if you want to pick on the country's worst thing, then England, America, Canada, Japan are just as worse.

    Photoshop can do wonderful things
    :rolleyes: No, it's just funny that people think France is the only country with any sort of historical heritage worthy of seeing. They're just really good at whoring themselves out to tourists.

    They also use it in a really strange way like "oh putain!" To exclaim the fact that they are really annoyed, in the same way we'd say words beginning with s and f that TSR won't let me say.
    When I had French friends they came up with this great phrase that I adopted as well:
    putain de mèrde (I think it's spelt correctly).
    I've said it a fair few timesin the UK:P:

    What?!

    I suppose the BNP isn't? ...

    Jean-Marie le Pen wasn't elected so politically, France is not racist!

    What experience have you had of France being a racist nation?

    France is awesome. Most Brits don't know the first thing about it - I've seen them in Paris, speaking english to everyone and expecting them to talk english back. It's so rude. Then they see Eurodisney and the Eiffel Tower then they think they have seen it all.

    Paris pwns London, for a start. Cheaper to live, eat, work, more stuff to do, more pretty buildings, etc.

    You can't make a lackluster claim like that?! What experience or evidence do you have regarding the French being racist? What have you witnessed that would suggest they are going to become "inherent" in their racist ways?

    Racism is worldwide, a global issue, racism happens everywhere and every nation has news stories or examples attached to support that every country can express racism. It's unfair to say that France, singled-out, will become a totally racist nation! It depends on the individual person or group as to whether or not they are racist, not the entire country!
