That's a pretty sweeping statement to make... What evidence have you go to back you up? And also, what exactly do you mean by "against"?
i put 'seem' as some people act like they are pro Bin Laden as they are scared to say anything else, and some people are militant and don't need the goverment to influence them.

50% is like a statament that will not offend people as it is half and half, i don't know the facts as i said above, but thats what i saw on the tv and artciles and stuff.

the women are suppressed so most will appear to support Bin Laden and people for his cause, children don't count as they can be swept up in the moment as it might seem fun to them.

and i think that the male natural instinct to fight accounts for the average 50%.

but as i said i havn't read the facts and was asking for some links to articles...

What if I said something like 50% of all black people are criminals? That would clearly be offensive, and would also clearly be wrong.

You can't make sweeping statements like that, especially when you have zero emperical evidence to support your argument.

Kilroy has made racist comments; fact.

what then am i supposed to say.

there were lots and lot of people in the streets celebrating. and i kept on seeing this stuff on tv on al jazeera.

i put it around 50%, but if you can prove to me otherwise please, do, and as i said 'seem to' because you don'' really know if it is their opinion or not

I agree there, i'm also black and being labelled...'coloured' is offensive. I'm not red or blue i'm black. Just as alot of people are white, you dont call white peoiple coloured do you? I'm offended.

Maybe you should stop trying to be funny and think about what you're putting!

Sorry if I offended none intended. But I think you will find that coloured is a generic term for any races other than white, I think. The British empire used to call mixed race people coloureds and it isnt offensuve why is it? I'm not white i'm a lighter tone of skin pigment but not white, but I dont find it offensive being called white? My grandad always says coloureds, he lives in an area with many asian communitys, and thats the term everyone uses there. Bradford.

NO i get you with the whole not knowing if black people mind being called black but coloured!!!!
The whole black thing, that's probably a result of all the racism that used to go on...ppl are paranoid about being offensive.....unless they actually are like that Kilroy Silk guy!

u No what though, i've noticed (and this was mostly in school) that if a white kid said something racist they got hit by a tonne of bricks....butblack and asian kids could say what they wanted....and people wouldnt accept that that was racist too.

Sweet heart I wasnt being offensive my family says coloureds it isnt racist or politically incorrect. None of my family are racist my grandads sister is marrioed to an asian man for gods sake and many of his friends are coloured. So how can I be racist? It is a word whats wrong with it? Alright I find white offensive because i'm not white, Im not the colour of chalk am I so it offwensive. All it is is melanin pigment anyway so race means nothing really. I dont even knolw why racism exists.

maybe it's accepted there, but that was my point, many black communities find being called coloured offensive, it imples the colours of the rainbow or something! 4Get it anyway, if ya didnt mean it then i'm not gonna keep ranting like some crazed idiot

I don't know why racism exoists either but it does, among some people, i'm sorry if i overreacted to your post before but where i come from it's just not accepted. The reason i called white people white is because i have heard m,any many white people call themselves white. How many black people have YOU heard say..."i'm coloured"

i will change my figure to about to nothing as i found a generalised number for the whole population of muslims being about 200 million around the world. But i did see how many people were celebrtating that day, and saw the atmosphere that was there.
