Between people of different backgrounds and communities? From my perspective I have friends from many different backgrounds and have always judged people on who they are as a person more than anything else. I feel that the younger generation seem to integrate much more than the older generation. What do people think?

i disagree. the older generation integrated much more, the ones born 1980-2000. back then we weren't as phone/internet obsessed, so we had to socialise with each other and play outside and go places to hang out to have fun. back then people mixed races with each other because they liked each other and took that chance, but now it just seems to be a trend. people get with each other because they wanted to make a baby who looks like a random pic on pinterest or for a facebook status, and make kids so they can exploit them on youtube lol and back then people were much more charismatic. nowadays if u dont have instagram eyebrows and a protein shake body and a certain amount of followers no one wants to be ur friend, online or the real world. so if today's dating and beauty standards make socialising harder between people of the same race, it's of course going to make it harder between people of different races.

to go to the rest of your post, nah. this is uk. it's majority white british/english, not just in general but in small and large towns as well. we dont have to integrate if we dont want to. because most of us wouldnt have the chance or incentive to anyways, since we couldnt find a black or brown person to save our skulls. and in the areas where there are more black/brown people, they are mostly grim neighbourhoods and the blacks and browns seem to just mush together in one area and hide out in a safe space together, creating a culture amongst themselves that..no one really wants to join anyways. i was exposed to black culture because i had a couple west indian neighbours (literally a couple lol) and i ran the streets a lot in different areas but...it's certainly not typical of white brits to do that. oh well.

Fortunately, there is not much integration. The Asian communities tend to keep themselves to themselves and are still very much rooted in their ancestral countries. They are brought here by Jews to interbreed with White people until there are no White people left in this country. Diversity is White genocide.

some people do not have any desire to integrate and they live as if they're living in the country they immigrated from. that's why there's a cultural/racial divide in certain parts of the country.

I think it's a matter of numbers more than anything. The area I live in is basically > 99% white, but the handful of immigrants and their descendents who do live here are actually pretty well integrated into the local community, British society and culture in general. Which isn't too suprising to me, if you are just one a few a non-native families in a given area, you don't really have any choice but to try and fit in, being insular isn't going to get you particularly far in life.

The danger is when they come in large enough numbers to form their own enclaves, which has clearly happened across many of our cities and major towns with the advent of mass-immigration. Where is the incentive to integrate yourself into British culture, when you can easily segregate yourself into a majority African, Caribbean, Asian or Eastern European neighbourhood, be amongst your own people and cultural practices, whilst still reaping the privileges and economic benefits of living in Britain? This is where tensions and divisions breed, and I honestly don't know how this problem is ever going to be solved, birds of a feather will always flock together and you can't force people to live amongst those they don't want to.
