[QUOTE=Jo.Ru_onway;7342871]Come now, I can't believe anything would escape you ...and i'm sure you overcome all your challenges, I think that both the British and the English are now a minority in Great Britain, we all know who the majority are now - but again thats another story - one of which i no doubt am sure everyone has their own opinion on.[/QUOTE

I think you're wrong, according to census -

The majority of people in England are British.
I have no hated minority which is yours as i am just as interested to know that ?

That's about colour, not nationality. There's no conflict between being Black and being English.

I dislike Chinese drivers.

Who then are the majority in Great Britain if it's neither the British nor the English?

I think racism and homophobia aren't acceptable in humour - however I'm happy to see religious people mocked relentlessly which I guess makes me a hypocrite (I also feel guilty cos you shouldn't take the mickey out of the mentally ill).

No, your just trying to get me to say it so everyone can go loopy at me

Why would anyone go loopy at you? Be proud of what you are thats fine but dont hate others different to you.

The biggest problem with racists is that they know racism is wrong.

which might reasonably be interpreted to refer to ethnicity. Do us a favour, tell us what you're on about.

I'm assuming that you're European. Whether you're a lesbian is immaterial to me.

I don't like fish, but apart from that i don't really dislike anybody or any nationality, especially as most of my family are African ( i hated my pe taecher at school cos she made me put my hair up ) but thats about it.
It's the M word but I'm saying no more than that as it's late here and i'm too tired to get into a debate over it, but i have NOT said i dislike these just that they are probably the majority and if not now they will be one day.
