    It's funny how the second article never made the news in the US. If it was a muslim killing a german women they would have discussed it for weeks.
    The first article still highlights that it was a european who stabbed the muslim woman, and how "appalling" it is that there is western ignorance to the incident. Isn't that the underlying problem you are implying?

    Yeah the first article mentions the story in the second article but the story itself was not covered in America to my knowledge. Not sure what you're asking though? :P Just thought it was pertinent as the OP mentioned arabs and such being the target of a lot of racism these days which is very true.

    The police shot the pregnant woman who is being stabbed's husband instead of the german guy with the knife? Why?

    I watched a documentary the other day about a puerto rican street banger who converted and moved from his neighborhood. They established a mosque and he was working at a jail to help inmates reform. The FBI raided the mosque on a friday during service (which would be like raiding a church on sunday during service) for no real reason.

    Haha, yes, that's the most laughable policy of them all. Apparantly it destroys a bloodline or something, I dunno.

    Can I say, that was an Islamaphobic attack, not an Arabphobic one. There are many Christian Arabs and many white Muslims- do not think the terms Arab and Muslim are synonymous.

    All this brings up the question: Does this American (out of a job) have the right to be racist against Mexicans if it's happening on a major scale?
    No, but he does have the right to report his former employer to the authorities.

    Poppycock. Of course it's not racist.
    It's preserving race and culture - as opposed to getting rid of it!

    Enoch was right.

    Yes, I understand they are different, but they are often grouped together by those less informed than yourself. The topic is about the current state of racism, which today goes beyond black and white as the original poster stated. Not sure why you're jumping at me for bringing another topic to the discussion. When someone looks at a brown skinned guy with a beard they have certain preconceived notions, to me that fits into racism.

    I wasn't insulting you, don't take it so personally.

    Races don't need preserving. It's just the colour of your skin and a few minor, irrelevant genetic traits. The government has no right to tell the people who they should and shouldn't have relationships with.

    I don't know how you intend to 'preserve' culture, because culture is constantly changing. The culture of 30's was different to the 40's, which was different to the 50's, etc. Saying that, I cannot consider any society that accepts the disgusting practices of eugenics and anti-miscegenation as cultured.

    Yeah I know, it's ridiculous. I don't know how anyone can think that a mixed race child "destroys a bloodline" other than by some absurd racist reasoning.



    I never add friend codes.

    You've got to give them credit- at least they sat in a room and actually tried to come up with a convincing reason as to why inter racial relationships are bad, instead of just spouting the usual illogical, irrational crap.

    Simon Cowell, what a dick.
