    Racism is prejudice based on perceived differences rather than actual scientifically measurable ones. Race doesn't exist on a scientific level so this is not a satisfactory justification.
    Racism is a word that means nothing nowdays.

    Was at a party last night, we started talking about BREXIT and one guy who's from the country said that he didn't like that there were so many Polish people in his village because in his experience a lot of them were rude, pushing past others in queues and being arrogant to strangers and stuff. And he had Polish young neighbours who kept playing music loudly and leaving passive aggressive notes.

    Anyway half the guys had a massive argument and the 1st guy got called racist/xenophobic. I didnt say anything lmao :ninja:

    Was my friend racist/xenophobic?

    Making derogatory remarks about Polish people most definitely is racist.

    taking jobs is not that bad, especially since they usually have to go through same application process. It's worse when they are unemployed and expect benefits.

    And you are an ideological fascist typical of the
    modern left.

    To answer OP: concerns about immigration are not racist, if he was saying "white British is the best race on the planet and everyone else is untermenschen," then yeah, sure, if he dislikes elements of polish culture and the fact that they aren't assimilating then that is not racist.
    You're going to try and justify the comments in the OP by saying rude and borderline aggressive behaviour is part of Polish culture?

    Saying white British people are the best makes you a supremacist, not a racist. Disliking an entire race of people because you assume they all behave the way a handful have in your limited experience makes you racist
