    I recently stated in a lesson that I believe we should heavily decrease immigration to increase the number of refugees taken in per constituency. I was then called racist, islamsphobic etc. Am I being genuinely ignorant or is this common sense?

    Erm, how could your motivation possibly be racist if you're saying we should let more refugees in...what were they smoking? Then again, what are you smoking with the suggestion "heavily decrease immigration to increase the number of refugees taken in per constituency" ...some strong stuff in that classroom I suppose.

    Immigration inlcudes refugees coming here. You arent making a lot of sense.

    your views are a little unusual, but not at all islamaphobic (infact qutie the oposite as you want to decrease the number of non-islamic immigrants, and increase the number of islamic refugees) and not racist, as you just want to change the dynamic of people coming in, but not reduce them.

    Sadly your young, and young people are, by and large, stupid pack animals who are governed more by emotion and social pressure then by logic/experiance and rational thinking. So your unlikely to ever get a propper decent response from your peers to any manner of questioning/critisising immigration.

    After all the latest buzzfeed article has told them the 30 ways that multicultrualism makes their life great..

    The fact that people only wish to allow Arab refugees in rather than Ukranian refugees is pretty racist.
