While my initial comment could be called a little bit of a rant worthy of Nick Griffin himself, the point I was trying to convey is solid. Also "People who have not been so thoroughly brainwashed by the BBC realise that the US is light years ahead of the UK in race relations, and is by far a peaceful place" you are not light years ahead of the UK in race relation's you simple make a bigger deal of the fact that you are doing something, further representative of the US guiding political and social principle "Lot's of talk, little walk", by the time you've stopped to tell everyone what your (I use the collective "your" here) going to do, the rest of the "developed" world's already done it and moved on.

As for the drunken riot comment, fine we as a nation like to drink, it's a important part of local social interaction in the UK, that you can't really "get", to use another wonderful Americanism, unless you were raised here. I'd rather see a few drunken yob's outside a pub punching the hell out of each other, than a 17 year old kid massacre a school with an assault rifle any day. As for general British racism, of course it exist's but it's mostly just missed directed anger, as the rest of the world continues to carve up my beloved homeland for their own political agenda.
