    Are you suggesting we're meant to just economically regress on purpose to satisfy that chip on your shoulder? LOL

    I'm sorry, but neither I, nor anyone in my family, nor anyone living on my street, nor any white male I personally know has enslaved an African, colonised a piece of foreign land (and repressed the populace), or shoved a Jew into a gas chamber. Do you not realise the sheer hypocrisy of your stereotypical grouping of white people into a category? This is exactly the kind of disparaging attitude and discourse that encouraged 19th/20th century European anti-Semitism. It's akin to an anti-Semite stating that because many of the world's leading bankers are Jewish, all Jews are obsessed with making money and taking over the world (indeed, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion - imported by Tsarist secret police to National Socialist gangsters in Eastern Europe - mirrored this attitude). My fear is that this categorisation of whites will go so far that it will overstep the balance of "strife for minority equality" and ultimately encourage a legitimised repression (especially with increasing minority powers and demographic proportions - with fundamentalist religious impetus if you thought it couldn't get any worse).
    My views? Please show me where I expressed a view on the topic let alone a stereotypical grouping of white people? I simply made a statement. That groups that in the past were related the the Nazi's are continually reminded of this but white people are not reminded of their crimes. This is a fact, not an opinion.

    Please show where I am trying to encourage a legitimised repression?



    What is your point? World politics is based on the past. On past relations between countries, on how they have acted and hat their rulers have done. Why should it be any different when regarding white crimes? Also this does not address my point that Germany and states ruled by the Germans are constantly reminded of Nazi crimes and yet white people don't feel the need to remind themselves of their crimes. Why should it be one rule for one group and a different rule for another?

    What is 'white culture' anyway?

    We talk about a 'multicultural society' but seems always to be for the benefit of immigrants.

    Most British people feel totally cheated by this because they don't have their own culture, in a society which supposedly belongs to them

    The Commission for Racial Equality's own figures highlight that the greatest proportion of racist attacks are directed against white people by the minority populace. Why don't we ever hear about them? Why was reportage over the death of Kriss Donald, white Scottish 15-year old, tortured in the most barbaric ways imaginable and murdered by hateful, racist Pakistani thugs (who went around trying to find a "white boy" to kill), pretty much non-existant? Why is it the case that in particular London boroughs where whites are a minority, and are failing at school due to having to be "taught" in classrooms with over 10 different languages, are provided with no government incentives, despite the fact that minorities (the white populace in these areas) should be entitled to them? Why are there frequent cases of Islamic grooming of Western girls in certain segregated areas (which we never hear about on national news because it'd be un-PC to do so)?
    Good post, it's true.

    only white people are made to feel guilty about racism, other races just seem to get away with it being highlighted. If they highlighted it evenly it may make everyone realise that idiot racism happens in all races, rather than raise tensions, it may make people see the other side of the coin.

    Nope, but your country has benefitted massively from all those activities at the detriment of other peoples.

    Just get over yourself already. Is being *****ed at really that much of a deal? Considering the wealth that was effectively stolen, people just want an opportunity to vent frustration at the sad state of their countries which is a large part the result of "white man imperialism".
    Well everyone had wars and tried to take land etc it's what happened. We're made to feel guilty because we happened to advance quicker and be a lot better at doing it.

    All races commit terrible war crimes, they just hide it away or just didn't have the technology or means to do it to a higher extent.

    It's like the classic small dog, big dog. Small dog goes to bite you and no one bats an eye, a big dog goes to bite you everyone is demanding the dog be destroyed.

    Leo- You deserve nothing more or less than I do. I pay my taxes, my dad does, my mum does, my grandparents did so on so forth.

    Please show me how Barclays of today benefited from the slave trade which was made illegal 200 years ago please. What a weird link.

    I leave it at.

    You live in the UK, live by our rules, our way of life and accept our history and culture. I have no problem with that.

    ot have articulated my point that well, always feels weird on a forum but hopefully people can begin a debate an see where we go from there.)

    As a white male myself I agree with you. We are too politically correct. Racism doesnt count if it is directed at white males. There seems to be strong double standards against white males, nothing can be done in their defence because it might "offend" the minorities.
