    This is stupid.
    What makes Great Britain so ******* great is its diversity.

    Go bring the BNP with you and build yourself a small white country in the Antarctic if you don't like it this way.

    Everyone is entitled to express their opinion so **** off you lefty vegetarian ****.
    Oh, come on. If you're going to quote me - at least give me a response that is worth reading.
    1. I'm a girl, check my profile. I do not have a ****, it's biology 101
    2. I'm about as far from vegetarian as you can get, seeing as if there is any meat in the house; I have to be the one to buy it.

    But the fact that you use vegetarianism as an insult is amusing, because you say everyone has the right to an opinion and then mock the vegetarian choice to not eat meat. Go you! :rolleyes:

    The fact that when you're out, you're looking for a white:non-white ratio is sad to say the least. For me this country can never have too much culture - it gives people as ignorant as you clearly are, the chance to watch/listen/learn from other societies, and the people who are accepting of a multicultural country, like myself, the opportunity to be part of a more dynamic and diverse society. So watch this space, it might provide you with two brain cells to rub together. :surprise: (Why yes, I do feel the smiley is appropriate - and that's my right to an opinion)

    I realise how blessed the UK (in particular London) is in terms of being multiracial - in Japan (where I have been living) less than 2% of the population is foreign - of which most are Koreans who have lived in Japan for generations and don`t stand out in terms of appearance. As a white person I visibly stand out and I am quite clearly treated as a foreigner in many situations. While far from all people are prejudiced, it`s not uncommon to get "OMG foreigner" glances, or people assuming I am not able to speak Japanese, and must only speak English. Most of this is simply based on the fact that Japan is not as internationalised, and that the amount of interaction with foreigners a Japanese person has (particularly in rural areas) is very limited, although that is starting to change. In the UK, it is much rarer that one is treated as an outsider, and if somebody is a native speaker of English, it is possible for them to be regarded as English irrespective of race - in Japan, even if I got to the point of speaking Japanese at a native level, I would never be seen as a "real" Japanese.

    Lol you been there? Notting Hill itself does not have many black people. It goes some of the most expensive houses in the country which I doubt most immigrants can afford.
    Was a large black area, the whole area was the focus of race riots in the 50's.

    I'm not racist and do not wish to sound like a BNP supporter but don't you feel white British people will become a minority sometime in the future. I was out in town today and I saw so many black and Asian people with a few whites chucked in lol. I've got nothing against people coming over here to live but the Government simply has let in far too many, including white Europeans.
    Exactly, I absolutely am not racist but, there is a nagging thought in the back of my mind that somewhere down the line us "britons" are going to become the minority ethnic group. The population and childbirth trends seem to support this idea - scary

    Why does it matter if we become more multicultural? The government should keep the interests of UK citizens are heart - and being a citizen of the UK doesn't imply you are white.

    Realize that immigration isn't necessarily a bad thing provided it is controlled in the correct way. I don't think the "racial" mix has anything to do with it. People can be British and not white.

    What does it even mean to be "British" anyway. Think about it, a large proportion of the UK is from mainland European origin anyway. Why are you as a white citizen anymore British than your black friend who emigrated here 100 years ago?

    One of the best post I have read in a while.
    Thanks. It's a shame no one that holds such views has bothered to reply.

    With race people forget to ask ourselves the simplest of questions. Instead they hide behind issues of fear - such as differences in culture and religion. We forget that we deal with these differences in our lives every day, irrespective of race. Yet when someone is black or asian, and they are from a different background or are Muslim, this seems to change people's mindset. It shouldn't.

    Does a person think or feel in a different way purely because of their ethnicity or nationality? No. These things are a by-product of experience.

    That is why I will never support this mindset, which racialist politics entails.

    No. Race shouldn't mean anything. It's just pigmentation in skin. Why can't people be seen for their personality and not colour?

    There is often more to it than race/colour such as religion, culture, etc.

    You could attempt to give a reason why its a problem to see less white people?
    Why do you find a problem?
    How does it affect your life?
    Why does it cause you concern?

    If you can answer those you might be able to have a focused debate, I dont understand your point really.

    I have a problem with specific people who do not respect my culture as a white british person. And I am happy to respect other peoples cultures, I just wish people were nicer - same can be said about some one from a different "social class" or region of the country, ie people who are different. But there is no way I could generalise about people that werent born here. Diversity is good, if people are well integrated.....acceptance inspired by education is the solution.

    Why is it scary? I'm not trying to discredit your point. I just think it would be good to hear why its causing concern. Personally it doesnt concern me. Is it more than an instinct?

    Here's some collective cognitive dissonance:

    My town of about 30,000 people was considered an area of key support for the BNP by the BNP themselves during last months Euro elections. There's always BNP posters popping up overnight, the occasional bits of white nationalist graffitti, people writing in to the local paper to whinge about the rape of the white man at the hands of the immigrant horde etc

    But we must be 99.99% anglo saxon, I know just one first generation immigrant family and I know a few second or third generation immigrants and mixed race people. You could spend months here and not see a single non-white person; it's pretty clear it's all in the local BNP's mind.
