    Racism is the word of the day. And xenophobia.
    Without turning this thread too heated, at what point is a negative opinion seen as rascism? Can you generalise when you are complimenting a nation? Does lack of integration contribute to rascism?
    Are some minoritties racist against other minority's and British people?
    Is the press pushing this agenda?
    If there is a scholarship programme, and it goes to only one eu and one foreign student, the other being British, can you use the rascist card?
    Eg: Is it rascist for Fulbright to deny opportunities to those with us citizenship, if they are educated in the UK?
    Is rascism used instead of discriminatory or choice?
    Are immigrants less integrated today than before because they don't need to assimilate, since they have their own communities,,shops, schools, churches?

    At what point does a negative opinion of someone seen as rascism?
    Something is racist when you pick on race to emphasise a negative. So, "The robber was running down the street." is ok but, "The black robber was running down the street." becomes uncomfortable simply because you would never write, "The white man was running down the street." given most white prejudice would have all black men as potential robbers.

    Can you generalise when you are complimenting a nation?
    No. There are thousands of racists and bigots in this country. The country is not racist as a whole though. I wouldn't like to think I am racist.

    Does lack of integration contribute to rascism?
    Yes and no. It is too complex to answer succinctly.

    Are some minoritties racist against other minority's and British people?
    Yes. But not as a whole.

    A police report search may need more details such as tattoos birthmarks and skin colour or accent to locate the,perpetrator.

    There is a significant difference between describing someone by their appearance and using their race to emphasise a negative aspect of what they might or might not have done.

    Since of the dawn of the new age of modern leftism, radical liberals have often used buzzwords like "racist" and "sexist" as a mean by which to silence debate contradicting their skewed political bias. If you question mass immigration - you're a racist. If you question the gender pay gap - you're a sexist. If you question the high crime rate amongst Eastern Europeans - you're a xenophobe. Sadly, leftist hysteria when it comes to discussing pertinent issues based off solid data is why freedom of speech, especially in Europe and now in university campuses in the US, is dead.

    You are racist if you are against a particular people because of their skin colour. Therefore, being against mass migration because of disintegration, pressures of public services and western incompatibility with Islam is not racist.

    Excellent conclusion, can we use it?

    Racism & Xenophobia are Prejudices (Pre-Judgement's).
    They are used by people who wish to keep their land, capital, labor and family away from another tribe of people.
    You will always find prejudice where there are resources which humans need.

    The EU referendum was the best example of prejudice you will ever see in your life time.
    Britain is and has been in a deficit of resources for some time and those who where privileged with a vote chose to restrict resource access to other people who had no voting privilege.

    I voted leave for a whole bunch of reasons and the reasoning above was in the TOP20.

    But to find out if someone is really a Racist by definition you need to ask them whether they would prefer 1 race over another race to migrate to the UK. And I am not going to answer that because someone can claim to be offended by the statement which will result in a ban on my behalf.

    Would it not be useful to the culture of the country if migrants assimilated into the country of their choice? Years ago,, no matter where you came from,you became British and wanted to be. Albeit the Brits had not so great food, but the behaviour and conduct was admired worldwide, and even other religions went to morning assembly.
    If anyone has the time and inclination, visit a few GPs, disibility offices and welfare lines.
