    black people have to pay for meal before getting it but some random white kids who come in can pay after. Plain racist! When will Britain learn to tolerate people of all ethnicities!

    Edit: see how the racists are neg repping me for exposing them. For shame!

    That's racist stereotyping of black people. Another example of ignorance and racist on behalf of the british people! For shame!

    It's quite simple, as long as the UK has a monarchy, non-whites will always be viewed as second class citizens.

    So maybe they were served by two different people with different understandings of the rules? Maybe the restaurant asks for people to pay beforehand for larger, more expensive meals. If this happened with two groups of white people, nobody would think anything of it, but because one of the groups is black, obviously it must be racist. When will people accept that not everything that is unjust is racially motivated? This is why I hate political correctness.

    The Pizza Hut incident was plain racism from what I can gather, to be honest. There's no defending it, the people who were working there were obviously out of order to say the least.

    Judging by your comments in the last thread you yourself are a racist bigot so you are the last person to be commenting on any kind of racism

    Sounds to me like not all staff followed the police advise to make people prepay. It doesn't say the same waiter served both groups.

    Another act of the British being racist? What a stupid statement. Fair enough this is an example of racism, but grow up, it happens everywhere. If you look how accepting and caring we've been for the amount of immigrants we've accepted into this country, maybe you'd think twice of generally accusing the British nation of being racist.

    It's inevitably gonna happen. Why complain against imperfection in an imperfect world.

    I am very impressed with the way the guys dealt with it though, if it was me I would have kicked up the biggest fuss!

    Who cares? Everyone knows it happens, everyone knows it won't stop (and that goes for every country in the world). If being a criminal offence (I believe it is?) can't stop it, what makes you think a disgruntled student is going to do anything?

    You talk like it is every body in the country who is doing this and shares them views.

    In fairness you do get racist black people. Along with racists from every race.

    The metro was more indepth on the same article, apparently its Pizza huts has a new policy that they can certain customers to pay upfront, which they seemed to ask the black guys but later on some white guys came in and they wasnt asked to pay upfront.

    When the black guys were asked to pay upfront, they asked was it their policy, and the manager said no, but its the way you look.

    The manager is a moron their is a policy that you can ask certain customer, the manager just proved he is racist but saying its the way you look.

    Ok firstly, i mean no offence at all with anything im saying, so please don't accuse me of anything because i may not agree.

    Am i correct to assume you are black?

    The oxford thing: How many black students applied and how many white students applied? Im sure there would be many more whites to apply, as there are more white people in the country. Also, are universities given ethnic info like that upon application?
    (may seem like a stupid question but im not university age tbh) If they are accepting the people with the best grades/track record then fair enough.

    The pizza hut thing: Maybe its because they're semi-famous footballers? The restaurant may have asked them to pay as they may have thought they could get a freebie, seeing as(again) they are semi-famous footballers
