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

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 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.
