    Where I work in London, I am an ethnic minority _ i am white, British and middle class. I am fine with it because the ethnic people around me are British, middle class and brown..... and funny! We don't see each other as different, we blend in perfectly and I actually like it.

    I'm glad people have put those up. Too many think minorities can't be racist but they can and white people are usually the ones they attack most.

    People forget not all whites were for the slave trade years ago and I'm not racist for something that someone else did years ago anyway.

    Well, they're not wrong. Just seems a bit of an odd message - although there's been an increase in people going nuts over race recently.

    It IS okay to be white. It's okay to be any race. The far left, and the far right, really need to understand this.

    Actually, I think this whole thing was a /pol trolling session that people overreacted to.

    I totally agree with them!! Black supremacy is just as bad as white supremacy. There's absolutely nothing wrong with being white, just like with any other race.
    It should be blatantly obvious that white people nowadays aren't responsible for slavery and blacks nowadays didn't even suffer from it, so they should quit asking for reparations.

    Is this an attempt at humour?

    There are still people nowadays who's families profited from slavery all over Britain, if your family profited from slavery you are still responsible. Blacks do not have to have suffered directly from slavery to feel anger at it or ask for reparations.

    wtf is going on, why is this such a big deal

    it's contributing to the same overall message of acceptance of oneself, isn't that what everyone wants? sick of this sh*t

    people too busy arguing amongst themselves than tackling f*cking real issues, this is why nothing gets done

    How is someone responsible for the actions of their ancestors, what a silly concept. This inherited guilt is dangerous and only leads to hate and resentment from both sides.

    Because you have profited from it, you enjoy the profits and ill gains of your ancestors thus you are responsible. You can ignore it and sweep it under the carpet but it's a fact. This is not a concept this is real life, it's not something I have made up.

    That's true but it's difficult to find those people, imagine if the government found the wrong ppl and ended up demanding huge amounts of money from some random while person who's very poor? That would be stupid.

    One of the things the British are brilliant at is keeping records and there was a programme in the past on channel 4 of those all around Britain who got paid in compensation when slavery was abolished. Who says they are poor? That's just your assumption.
