    Indeed. But I think that's neither here nor there. Any moral discussion of this kind presupposes free will. The whole thread (and hundreds of others) would be rendered null and void if every time a moral issue was up for discussion it was pointed out that there may be no free will at all. Within the libertarian framework on which this whole topic must be based, there is a difference between choosing your race and choosing your actions.
    Yes, I suppose we must just put that issue aside or else we'd be frozen and unable to discuss anything else.
    I'd suggest that the issue, and many others, like you say, truly are rendered null and void, though, and so we continue to discuss them for entertainment purposes only

    no dig at you, but I cant ever see that happening. I dont trust the daily mail they would pinrt something like that, though ive never heard of the other source before. Minorties only make up someting like 8 % of the population. I doubt indigneous Britains would ever be a minioirty in thier own country, if they were threatened some ecnomic factor would play key to ethnic numbers being reduced.

    Its just my opinion that whites wont be a miniorty, I know there is studies that say they will be, but i personally cant see it happening. If it were to happen it would hardly be there fault they cant exactly assimiliate into our society as they are not accepted.

    Is saying something like 'the majority of Indians are poor' considered racist? Lots of people would probably say yes, but it does have truth to it. Thats what I mean by people are oversensitive.

    Asian refers to my half of my body that is chinese, ihave no problem with the chinese as they are not extremists and dont continually suicidally bomb innocent members of the public.
    I dont say this often but you're an idiot. Its stupid to hate an entire race just because a minority of them do undesirable things.

    That's not racist, that's to do with their economical situation in India...

    No, it is not. How is saying that racist is beyond me? It is statement of fact. It is not wrong to be racist.

    Being a different race to someone doesn't just mean a different skin colour. There a variety of genetic factors, such as facial structure.

    I've already dealt with this - there is a lot more to the concept of race than simple skin colour.

    I totally agree with you saying that we need integration. We need tolerance and acceptance of diversity, not measures in order to divide people even more than they already are. I believe that diverse cultural traditions can be maintained to a degree whilst integration is ensured, and really this is only achievable through acceptance and the unravelling of myths and generalisations about immigration.

    Not to mention that if someone votes BNP due to imigration policies technicly they are xenophobic not rasist... appoloties for any spelling mistakes
