    But their reasoning is illogical, irrational crap.



    I never add friend codes.

    And isn't that the sweet irony?

    I don't even know what to say in reply to that. And that's not me admitting defeat.

    You see, banning inter-racial relationships is not racist. I'm not saying I'm necessarily for it, and I'm not saying I'm necessarily against it.

    However, the fact that this 'ban' would affect everybody of all races is exactly why it is not racist. It's a policy that affects every one.

    I suppose the reasoning for such a policy is somewhat controversial - but it all comes down to personal beliefs, so I'm not willing to accept what other people say as truth - and nor should any one else even consider my personal opinion as truth.

    Enoch was right.

    There is however something British about hating the French.
    I swear it's in my blood. I just can't stand them. Especially tourists.
    Every other race/nationality is win for me though.

    I'm a mexican that was born here in the US BTW.

    Read slowly,
    "If an illegal alien (doesn't matter what race) takes your job and you are an American who speaks and reads English, you are a ****ing retarded dumbass. How stupid could you get when someone who hardly speaks English and can't even read it takes your job. Your are pretty pathetic in my opinion."


    I ain't adding anymore Brawl Friend Codes.

    It does seem prevalent, but I've never followed it personally, nor understand it.

    But I wonder, are the people who believe in white British people being banned from mixing genes with other races be as adamant if a German and a Chinese couple had offspring (in whatever country)?

    Also, I think it still is racist, it's just racist against non-British people.

    For example, being islamophobic, one could be afraid of black populations that convert to Islam as well as a lot of people in the middle-east.

    All in all, the problem is some people thinking they have the right to not only speak on behalf of others (inside and outside their racial/geographic group), but also to enforce beliefs not held by others.

    Welcome back for starters haven't seen you around in a while.

    With tourists, whenever I go to say Devon or Norfolk they're there and just painfully rude really. Lack of manners/common courtesy when about. Different occasions my Mum's been barged into 'cause they wouldn't go single file down a path or whatevz and I've had a go at 'em. I'll respect them as a nation when I find a reason to, which I'm yet to tbh.

    Fair enough. Sounds like you've had bad experiences with them, and I understand you would come to the conclusion you did. However, I wonder what British tourists are like in France. I mean, we are renowned for thinking that the entire world should speak English, rather than us learning to communicate with others...

    Oh, and cheers for the welcome back message. I always liked the political discussions.

    In my experience, the French are incredibly rude. And in one case, a bit pervy (though that's quite a radical generalisation xD).

    They didn't queue, they push past you, and they're hardly pleasant in speaking to you (granted, I don't really speak French - god awful language).

    Enoch was right.
