For fear of going off topic, gitanos are considered a separate race or ethnicity, but in Spain I believe they are not officially considered so. This is interesting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romani_people

You should treat everyone as equal regardless of colour / religion /culture UNLESS of course they are not equal!

My view is many cultures and religion are just not compatable with the western world , 99% of immigrants are against integration or their religion will not allow it so there`s not a cat in hells chance of us all getting along happily.

I heard at the weekend that muslims are not allowed to donate organs after death but there thousands on the UK NHS waiting list for organ transplants, now this is enough to wind up the most understanding anti racist surely!!!

I think if you look at the (my) thread in TIO the idea was not to have discussions that could turn heated hijacking a Spain thread.... I don´t think it´s wrong to ask and there´s already a thought provoking answer.

Did 'some bloke in the pub' tell you that? I suppose it never occurred to you to check it out - if you had done you'd know it wasn't true. In Islam organ donation is an individual decision, same as Judasism and Christianity.

Not quite the same but you have reminded me of something. There was big campaign for blood donations here on Ibiza earlier this year. The local ex pat newspaper reported that many of the islands muslim community donated blood and that the blood was generally very good quality.

You have no business apologizing on behalf of others.

It was raised on BBC question time and not denied by a Manchester muslim leader, do your own home work instead of talking to your mates in the pub

I don't need to, I know it isn't true. Have you tried checking yourself yet?

Here's a link to help you:

Muslim, Jewish or anyone elseś attitudes to blood or organ donation have no place in this thread. 90 minutes ago the topic of discussion was one personś experience in the workplace in Spain & how best to deal with or move on from it, or prevent it happening to others. I may have been responsible for questioning the use of the word race, but I certainly don´t want to be associated with quite so much of a deviation off-topic

Yes, I agree Fiona, however you are right to question the definition of race as it is important in this thread, as it has legal implications if someone is considering taking legal action due to alleged racism...

I am making no comment on whether there is a race issue here, just commenting that this is the reason for the thread. I actually don't think there is a race issue here, instead prejudice.
