End of the day people will decide who they want to be with. The only way to stop mixed race relationships is to make it illegal which is a slope far, far too dangerous to go down (it happened in the past and look where that ended up). I am of the opinion that all should be judged for individual actions not classed as a random group with who all act the same and as such should be classed the same.

In my job I have met people of all races some who have been decent people and some less than decent. I take them all on their own personal behaviour and approach to others.

This country is an example of hundreds and hundred of years of immigration. There have been many times before when there have been high levels of immigration and there will be again. it is part of why we are as we are,

Is there anyone else here who really hasn't had any sort of multiracial upbringing or experience? I think I'd struggle to think of a single person I really know, even on a work colleague or acquaintance basis, who wasn't white. I just grew up in white areas I guess.

I do know someone from Germany and another from America, but that's really it.

I should discover what my Chilean roots are. I might discover I might be an Arab, Mapuche or a Jew or something. I know my grandfather from the Maltese side was English. Btw, I've met a bit, Maltese-Punjabi and Filipino-Swedish remain the most surprising mixes. Also, I plan on meeting Berenice Marlohe and inviting her to dinner

Actually Arab or being related to an Arab-speaker in the past wouldn't be a surprised, I speak a language that came out of Sicilian Arabic which evolved right out of Maghrebi Arabic.

Are you afraid of the Irish? They're immigrating to England as well, but they're able to infiltrate good old-fashioned English society on account of being really white. Will it be too late when every British child is either ginger or Morrissey?

Same here pretty much. I know quite a few Asians though and I had a Chinese girl in my class through school. I think I only know of about 3 or 4 black people that live in my town but I don't know them personally. To be honest North Wales can be a pretty crappy place when it comes to racism. The English are still hated round here so y'know...

Is there a place where the English aren't hated though?

Who likes the English anyways? What have they ever done for us?

You've never been to another country and been the only westerner around? the sense of sticking out like a sore thumb or being a bit vulnerable or slightly uncomfortable?. Nothing nasty but just very aware of your surroundings and the people around you. It can be a fun feeling but it can also be a lonely one too.



I have. I was in Beijing for three weeks in 2010. Do you know how I felt?

I didn't give a shit.

Because they're just people.

Doesn't matter what language they speak, doesn't matter what colour their skin is. They're just people.

You are literally scared of people because they have a different skin colour to you. You're like a kid scared of the boogeyman under his bed.

Grow the fuck up you racist fool.

I just tried to find this picture of a lone black guy with a less then pleased facial expression amongst an all-white wedding party photo that I love and all I could find was inter-racial porn. True Story.

Anyway, it's scary how many people I know with Phubb's mindset. I can't tell whether he's actually serious or his wording is just really off, but either way racial integration panic is both amusing and also terrible at the same time.

There is a weird thing about people who hold such opinions though, in that they aren't cast in stone. It just applies to 'other people'. My mum and stepdad are vehemently against all immigration, yet are 2 generations from immigrants themselves. They are also basically racist in their everyday views and yet both have black relatives who they care deeply about. It's a weird contradiction that I guess maybe reflects a wider issue.

It's not even integration (though if you consider miscegenation 'integration', then yeah, Phubbs is totally scared of integration). It's just people scared of the possibility of people with different-coloured skin living within a 100km radius of them. It's pathetic and it's unconscious white supremacism (supremacism is not a word but fuck y'all).

It could also relate to an older mindset in a way but I don't know. Your upbringing plays a factor too. It's similar to people I know that have a bad case of gay panic yet have family members and friends that are homosexual and support their decisions.

Ah, miscegenation was the world I was looking for. And that's exactly how it is where I live. My town's population is roughly 700 and there's maybe 10 people of a mixed race and they're treated much differently to everyone else. It's frankly disgusting to be honest. Archaic mindsets need to be erased.
