    PAGE 1 OF 3On page 2 and 3 there are short summaries of the Parker, Hopley and Donald murders.
    Man, that article is actually legendary. I thought The Times was turning into a more liberal, Guardian-type magazine, which, by any doubts, wouldn't publish something like this.

    Thank you, The Times, for showing people the extent of anti-white racism.

    This very story utterly discredits your entire notion that there is some kind of media-led conspiracy to downplay anti-white racism.

    To be honest, I'm bloody flabbergasted that this story was released. The article points out that anti-white racist attacks are a taboo in society - and that's absolutely true. I've always had a bit of faith in The Times.

    Yes, of course every British citizen is British.
    Spot on. It is obviously possible to be British without being Anglo-Saxon, Scottish, Welsh or Irish. 'Britishness' being a legal technicality dependent upon where you happen to be born/where you succesfully immigrate and in no way connected to your ethnic group. A black kid born in England speaking English as his mother-tongue and raised within English culture is anglo-saxon in my view. Culture and language are not genetically inheritable and his ancestry has no direct bearing upon him. He is just as English as any white kid whos ancestry can be traced back to Alfred the Great.

    I had faith in them, even though they seemed to be turning into a liberal-type paper. Just glad they've done an article such as this one.

    Wonder why I called The Times a magazine the other day...

    Im sorry but i dont agree with that point, when i see a black person for example, they may sound english and lived here all their lives but i wouldnt think that they were english simply because of the skin colour, they may say their english but i still dont think 100% that they are.

    They are english and its completely foolish to classify on the basis of something as utterly meaningless as complexion.

    While they may be English, per-se, they most certainly are not Anglo-Saxon.

    Complexion is not the only thing which differentiates races.

    Of course not, no one's suggesting you can change your race, but that has nothing to do with their nationality.

    Are you sure you meant that, AS?

    Because it looks like you've contradicted yourself, following on from the first sentence of that paragraph:

    It is obviously possible to be British without being Anglo-Saxon, Scottish, Welsh or Irish.

    Who are the English spk, who are the Zulus, who are the Ainu, who are the Iroquois, who are the Maoris? Could you identify each of them in a "cultural" line-up, just by their appearance. I could. How would I manage something like that?
