OzzieBob Flag Kicking Racism out of Football 24 Mar 05 10.18pm

I'm a migrant so I may be biased, but I emmigrated from England and migrated to Australia. I work for someone whose family migrated from Italy and my wifes family migrated from Greece. Lately there has been more migrants from South East Asia and South Africa to Australia. In the city there is a china town where you can buy all sorts yummy asian food. We have italian restaurants and Australia has developed it's own cuisine called asian fusion. If there was no migration we'd have a few kangaroos and aboriginees in an empty country with no infrastructure.

If you don't want migrants then stop eating Curries, Kebabs, Chinese. Stay out of the off licences and corner shops owned by the hard working indians and Packistani's and while your at it you can boycott Palace for having Hungarians, Australians and numerous people of african west indian heritage. But why stop there, why not make England independant and send Dowie back to Northern Ireland and get rid of all the Welsh and Scots. At some stage you may have to kick youself out because if you go back far enough the romans were in England then angles and saxons both germanic tribes, Vikings also settled in england then the french invaded.

A lot of people seem to want anyone coming to this country to have a complete personality transplant and forget everything to do with their culture and heritage.
Can you honestly say that you would do that if you went to another country?
Wherever I am in the world, even I was living there, I would still be British and wouldn't want to have to completely change myself.

I'm not saying they should completely change themselves, but their way of lives should not disrespect or irritate the ways of life of the current inhabitants.

Sorry to be a pedant but Dowie is actually English... Just has Northern Irish heritage...

The fact that they can say whatever they want to me, do whatever they want to me and it's fine, but if I say anything or do anything back it's racist, or "cos they is black". I hate the over-Political Correctness that the influx of immigrants has brought, so much so that it is unpolitically correct on the majority of the country. Granted it's not entirely their fault (weak Governments are equally to blame), but it does my head in...

Roffey, does it not depend on the nature of the way you treat and react to them? If you react to them as individuals, then you will get treated like one.

If you call someone a '****** c***', then you're asking for trouble. If you call someone a 'c***' that might be fair enough, if they are being a c***. It's where you addthe extra that implies that they are a c*** because of where they come from which will provoke anger.

 


A one and a two...

But Roffey this verbal abuse that you have recieved isn't just from foriegners is it? It is and can be from anyone. If a black or asian or whatever person (British or not) called you a white piece of s***, then yes it as rascist as you say you black s*** back. I think as a white person we may have a different mind set to this abuse and don't take it the same way, possibly because as a "white" person you won't have recieved the same level of racial discrimaination as a black person so playing the "race card" is first line of defence, and the easiest thing to say back. For example, my cousin is a teacher and she has a student who is chinese, she gave him a bad report because he was terrible, he has reported her saying she did it because he is asian. He is English though.

Rise above it and no need to get into rascist arguments with people. People are arseholes regardless of race and religion!!

It does obviously. I've never been outwardly racist to anyone. If you have an argument over something completely irrelevant to race, and the other person says something out of turn to me, and I call them a prick for example, they then use the racist card. Despite me calling them a prick for being out of order to me. Nothing to do with racism at all, or where they are from.

It's absolute bollocks. And it pisses me off so badly.

It can be, if there is verbal abuse between two white people then there is no problem. We just get over it. If you have the same argument with a black person, or an Asian over the same thing if you call them a prick it's because it's racist according to them. It's bollocks.

Oh dear, oh dear. Here we go again.

I, to be fair, have no wish to trawl through massive extensive spiels by inherently introspective and reactionist posters.

I suggest you bother to read the thread, Tome. You may be surprised that a lot of views aren't too dissimilar to your own. Have another go, and then you can get on your high horse.

 


Goodness is what you do. Not who you pray to.
