Britain and the world has a long way to go, as seeing a man and woman beyond the color of his skin but by the potential within.
Can you blame it on purely racism or is it a case of a lack of education. We are taught from a young age black is the negative color and white is the positive, unfortunately, there are not many black role models in Europe for the black man to look up to and for the white man to respect. I think the majority of the white population find it hard to relate to a black man and black women are more likely to get employment because they are not seen so much as a threat.

Studies show that when blacks do get skin cancer, it is often discovered at a later stage and is more deadly. Musician Bob Marley, for instance, died of malignant melanoma, an aggressive skin cancer that spread to his organs.

A few years of affirmative action could put that right.

Any UK government should considfer it for a limited period, to give a chance to the black community to break the stereotype circle it is in.

Blacks also need to promote their successful individuals as role models. There is nothing basically wrong with blacks, they just need some image boosting and a fair crack of the whip.

So says a ''honky'...

Well, we know that you have a chip on your shoulder anyway.

It's alright fot you insult other races, but you don't like a taste of your own medicine, do you?

"Honky" has mostly a nice connotation. It's not worse than calling black "blackies", and I take "honky" with humour myself.

Why can't you loosen up a bit?

We are all there to live together.

Depends on the context.

Around friends and on the net I say whatever I want and visa versa.

In professional settings and around the Law people I must respect the Equality Act (2010).

I can't say as I please so nobody else should either.

Someone calls me "gora" "chitta" "honkey" "white mo fo" etc....... then I will pull the race card.

Like I said, you have a chip on your shoulder and no sense of humour.

I view of what the whites have been inflicting on other races, I take the "nicknames" they give us, not as an insult, but as just rewards.

I am British, I don't need to go to those places.

The way you deal with your minorities is your problem, not mine.

I don't have problem with most blacks in Britain. Is that alright with you?
