Not at all confused.
His post starts off as observations, not complaints. The word complaint was introduced by a respondent to the thread.
Now you are just being deliberately obtuse. A much admired quality. Once again- well done you.
So Their sacrifice is never forgotten

Read the general category details. Another stupid post by someone with nothing to add. Thanks FreightDog for putting this member in his place.
I can see that you have never been to Bradford. You should check out the percentage of Asian families who refuse to fill in census forms.tightenupvolume1 wrote: ↑Mon Apr 01, 2019 3:24 amBRADFORD
The largest proportion of the district's population (63.9%) identifies themselves as White British. The district has the largest proportion of people of Pakistani ethnic origin (20.3%) in England. The largest religious group in Bradford is Christian (45.9% of the population).
FreightDog seems to be one of the few who bother top read posts and understand their point.
I have never complained about colour nor have I complained about the number of immigrants in the UK. I simply commented on the fact that I was the only white person in the supermarket and it came as a surprise. It is the PC, holier than thou brigade who call "Racist" at every opportunity. It makes them feel important.
FYI, my wife is Singaporean Chinese by birth but British by education and nationality. She has probably contributed more to the UK than many who shout racist simply because of an observation.
Jumping on the "Racist" bandwagon comes to mind. Makes you feel good eh?
And to finish on. Someone who I hardly ever agree with has posted the perfect example of what I am talking about......Burnsy and his Father Ted racist clip. Classic example of hypocrites and bigots who did not bother to look deeper at what was meant.
Just love it how the "Anti Racist" brigade use every opportunity to post stupid replies in a post they have not read properly or understood. That is why I headed it "Non Racist" to make the point that it was an observation.
So for centuries we've had people with shared ethnic & religious backgrounds or similar socioeconomic status band together in certain parts of town. Obviously, you are very much aware of this, there's Little India and the Muslim area in Singapore, in other parts of the world there have been Jewish quarters, "Germantowns", China-/Japan/Korea-Towns, Little Italy's/younameit's, etc..
So, you see this happening in your own country and suddenly it becomes a big issue for you. Why?
Actually, not hard to see why but I'd like you to spell it out and BTW, one cannot declare their own speech as non-racist.
So how would you have felt if the place had been full of ethnic Chinese? How about Khmers with dark complexions or Southern Thais & Malays?
You seem to be comfortable with one kind of non-European/British/Caucasian type of person because you have become familiar with them but not others, even though they could all be classified under "Asian".
What makes you embrace one culture and feel very uneasy about the other? Behavior, skin color, appearance giving away religious affiliation (i.e. Muslim)?
