    Not at all, your reasons are that they make the place worse for everyone else.

    No they are not mate. EU migrants are mostly atheist/agnostic or Christian and they are at least 40-45% of all UK immigrants.

    If you 'dont care' why did you make a thread about it?
    Face it you do care! You care so much to make a thread about it and ask random TSR users their opinion. If you real didnt give a **** about the fact that it makes you look like a hypocrite. Then this thread wouldnt be made.

    It's likely that he's an uber-troll, not even from Ghana and thus doesn't really care.

    I wouldn't use the word hypocritical. Hypocritical in my books is when you do something different to what you outwardly express to other people. Now since YOU did not choose to come here (but rather your parents) I would not class it as hypocritical.

    I would use the word ironic maybe.

    If YOU immigrated yourself, and then hated on immigrants, then that would be hypocritical.

    Not liking someone because they're trying to change something you don't want changed is fine but to just apply that to every single muslim and immigrant is stupid and makes you look dumb.

    If you are going to be a hypocrite and make generalisations about people, the be proud of it.

    You are not a hypocrite for not liking immigrants. You are a hypocrite for refusing to find a way to dress your prejudices properly so that they do not show and become too obvious.

    The heading of your post talks about immigrants. The content relates to Moslems. Are you trying to insinuate that immigrants=Moslems? In which case, your statement would still have all the signs of prejudice. Further, you are also an immigrant. Maybe you dont like yourself either.

    Lastly, race cannot be compared to faith. Faith is a very different thing altogether. Moslems want to be able to practice their faith, which you knew about at the time of allowing them entry, without unreasonable restrictions. I have never heard about a black person complaining that they have not been allowed to practice being black, whatever that would mean.

    In short, yes you are hypocritical and your prejudice smells from kilometers away.
    Oh and I am black like you.

    I don't even who that poster is and I didn't bully you into anything lol. Your replies are nonsensical hence my belief that you're a troll.

    It makes you stupid, it doesn't make you a hypocrite. The stupidity predominately derives from the fact that you believe an immigrant is a Muslim.

    'Immigrants' aren't just under one umbrella.

    That's the thinking of a lot of youth nowadays who are immigrants (by choice or not) - you got the opportunity to settle here, have a decent education, good human rights and a lot of freedom, but you don't want anyone else to have the same opportunities. It's just taking everything for granted and being ignorant.

    Also generalising all Muslims is extremely ignorant too; all Muslims aren't immigrants, and then some Muslims do actually try to fit in.

    The more you comment, the more your prejudice seeps through.

    You are a child of immigrants but you have the audacity to say "I don't care about being a hypocrite but do care about immigrants coming and mashing up the country..."

    Well if your parents were welcomed into this country and no one said what you are saying to them, what gives you this self righteousness? People like you are just trolls.
