Hi, I lived in Manchester for 20 years and not once did I encounter racism of any significance. I am white British and atheist. My wife was Asian British and atheist. We lived in a mixed area - Rusholme. White, black, Asian, Irish and all. We all got on. I now live in East Lancashire. Here, it is endemically racist. I attend Blackburn College, university Centre studying for a BA in English and History. Half of my fellow students are Asian and 80% of them women. We all get on together because we relate to each other, not on our religious, cultural or gender differences but on our similar personalities, interests and intellectual capabilities. It is easier and a lot nicer to find common ground with each other than find an arbitrary and irrelevant ground for conflict.
We are all people. I do not judge anyone on whether they are atheist or religious. I do not judge people on their colour. I judge people on their commitment to freedom, commitment to free speech and their commitment to tolerance.
