Surely this is nationalism rather than racism?

It's not racist because they are the SAME race.

And Indians aren't a race, it's a nationality

So it's like a Korean bashing Chinese


that ain't racist.

It's nationalism

The Guardian purposefully misusing words for their liberal rhetoric and website hits :facepalm2:

1. The Guardian is quoting ITV so if anything, you should be bashing them.
2. From your tone, you seem to be implying that the fact that this is nationalism is some kind of excuse. This kind of abuse is completely unacceptable and people should be condemning it for what it is, rather than trying to change the topic by complaining about semantics. It really doesn't make a huge amount of difference whether this is racism or extreme nationalism.
3. Racism and nationalism are definitely not mutually exclusive.

Idk that made me laugh lmao. Okay just bc people refer to brown people generally as desis doesn't mean they're of the same race. No Indians wanna be associated w pak and I'm sure ***** feel the same way too now. It's the sad truth.

No. They are not. They all are Asian and from the same geographical location. I'm not bothered about political differences but don't let that get the definition of the word race completely wrong.

Ok anyway my point is nationalism is not the same as racism.

Im on about the title so I've no clue why you're responding like I presented an opinion.

Ok now read the last line in my quote to you.

And yes here semantics is very important. Don't you think divide and conquer is a complete shame? Pakistanis and Indians are the same race, no matter political differences. It's all quite stupid. I don't particularly care about the content of the article, the wording is important because of what it clearly is triggering from angry readers lmao, for The Guardian's benefit solely. :nah:
