    Yay, I'm not the only person in Britain who doesn't hate the French.

    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.
    I'd argue it's just as racist against British people. It infringes on our right to be with the people we love regardless of race.

    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.
    Couldn't have put it better myself.

    the government should have no say period on what skin colors you can marry. that is absurd. I'm not so familiar with the genetic arguments but from my understanding doesn't a mingling of the gene pool lead to stronger genes?

    So you can't marry people of different skin color in what country?

    No, we can marry people of other races in the UK. I brought it up because an insane party called the British National Party wants to ban it here. Thankfully they're a fringe party with little chance of any real power (if you want to know what they're like, imagine the Ku Klux Klan without the white robes, trying to convince everyone they're not really racist, but still talking about bullshit like 'racial purity').

    So basically it's a bunch of crackheads that don't want people of different color skin to get married.
    What type of races are over in the UK?

    All types really, just like America. The majority belong to the native ethnic groups (English, Scottish, Irish, and Welsh). Most of the non-whites are from Commonwealth countries, especially South Asia and the Caribbean, and there are sizable minorities from China, Turkey and the Middle East. Islam is the second biggest religion.

    Yeah, there's almost 2 million Muslims here (about 3% of the population). There's a few mosques here in Cardiff.

    Yeah I have cousins in the UK, when my cousin mentioned that to me I was pretty surprised I'd never heard that before.
