    We see on this site everyday threads about immigration and immigrants, the problems they may or may not cause. Whether or not they are liked or disliked. Whether or not the natives of the country they have moved to are racists or whether the immigrants themselves are racist.

    But stop and think about this, how can you tell if someone is an immigrant?

    Are you claiming this as a fact or opinion, because you will see in such **** stirring papers such as the Daily Mail, that white people can also fall into the category of "immigrant".

    This Brits that old you they hated non whites, what provoked them to come out with such a remake? (Assuming they didn't just walk up to you in the street).

    An immigrant (in my opinion) is someone that doesn't have a British accent (or local/regional accent for that matter).
    I.e someone with a Geordie accent in Birmingham is clearly an immigrant to the Midlands.

    We don't wish to compare ourselves to other races, we are unique and we are what we are, and we want to stay that way.Unlike the brits we never felt the need to steal from other country ,even nowdays these low class brits prefer to claim benefits and selling drugs instead of working...:mad:

    Out of interest, where in the UK do you live?

    I think you should know pretty well from the responses that you are coming across as an absolute idiot - just like any Tamil on the street. Although I still love all Tamils.

    Good indicator is if they can't speak the local language or aren't looking like the local people

    Asking this question is a good way of drawing out what the real motives of those that always complain about immigration on here are:

    remember how they always like to tell us they aren't racist, it's only the media that is playing the race card against them, they are just reflecting 'genuine concerns' about low pay, housing shortages and whatever

    But when it comes to it their definition is basically they don't look like or sound like what they think a British person should be, ie white. The bottom line is they judge people on the colour of their skin: if they aren't white they don't want them here and they want to complain about them all the time.

    But remember folks thats not racist, it's just the left wing media that plays the race card.

    Mass immigration affects British blacks, and British Indians etc aswell .

    They should also oppose mass immigration.

    An immigrant is someone who isn't ethnically English, Scottish or Welsh.
