    Britain isn't racist? ....130 racist incidents a day!

    In 2013/14 alone there was nearly 50,000 racially motivated incident that had been reported accordingly to the police. Not including racist incidents that had not been added to statistics due to racism within the police, the press and institutions. With these not being accounted for the figure must be significantly higher.

    In actual fact, all countries are racist.   What is reported as racist is usually whites being reported by other races in Britain.   Often there is reverse racism against whites by others, which is rarely noticed or reported due to the "Political Correctness" of the matter.
    Many businesses owned by non-white people do not employ white staff and nothing is said, whereas if white owned businesses don't employ mixed race staff, it is classed as racist.
    If people were honest with themselves, most would have to admit to a certain amount of racism towards at least some races.  It's an unfortunate fact of life.

    I NEVER once mentioned that white people are being racist. Secondly don't compare the racism black people or people of colour face to 'white racism ' it's on a completely different scale. You say that businesses owned by non white people don't employ white people but the majority of businesses are own my white people.That's a fact.

      We may be at cross purposes here, as we live in different countries, and the dynamics are different.   I disagree that white and black racism are on different scales.  Racism is racism.

    The figures are fake. Someone being nervous around a Muslim after the London tube bombings may be profiling, but it isn't serious, while British police ignored the Rotherham rape scandal (1400+ poor under aged white girls raped by Pakistani Muslim gangs) for fear of being called racist.
    So you get a situation where saying "no more Muslim refugees" on facebook is a racially motivated incident, but the gang rape of white girls by Muslim men on a massive scale isn't seen as a racial incident and minimized by the government and press.
