I didnt even read the comment but only the title. Well I think I'll leave this to teh Americans and I think you are alittle racist. You should maybe ask which on of these two countries do people experience more racism than the other one.

America, for sure. Especially considering the history of racism in that country as well, UK doesn't have that. America takes the cake, I think.

And wait. Blacks display the worst racism? I'm sure there are black racists, but I think it's hardly compared to what whites have done. I don't want to rehash the past or anything, but if we're ranking...no competition, it's whites.

Either way, racism is overrrated as HELL. I am not suprised there are black racists (due to the history of blacks in the USA), but it doesn't make it right.

BTW Leroy Lipps, you're the most racist idiot on this site, next to some other ones. So don't talk about blacks considering your own racism.

Cushie Tushie,
Be nice. I'm trying to get some objective answers here.

How can you ask for objectivity when you have been nothing but racist and your question is completely biased? Racism exists in every single race. Honestly.

Black people do not have the power to inflict racism to the extent that you white people do to us past, present, nationally and globally included.

USA by far. The USA is the most horrible evil country and government in all of world history. All the countries with nuclear weapons should launch everything they have against it from sea to shining sea until the whole thing is a crater 10 miles deep.

Blacks here in the USA display the worst kind of vehement racism towards whites and other non-blacks.
How does this compare to the situation in the UK?
really, what is your obsession with black people?? you keep jumping around to different threads and starting topics that are just hateful. why are you on here if you hate blacks so much?? why do you spend your time on a forum full of people you hate??

It'd be worth it if it means there's no more USA. And I'd be gone, and you, and everyone on this board.

The UK! Constantly race riots are being displayed over there. Not to mention Europe is the most xenophobic continent on the face of the globe.

As someone who has lived in both the USA and UK I have to say that they are both different when it comes to racism.“Racism” is too ubiquitous a term. One has to be more specific.

When it comes to racism against black people the USA is definitely worse. Its history of slavery and racial segregation is more than just a sore in its history. The effects of this past to this day plague race relations. Since the UK never had such a history toward blacks one definitely has to say that white-on-black racism is worse in the States.

However, when it comes to different types of racism I would say the UK is worse, especially as a previous poster mentioned xenophobia. Today’s racism in the UK is targeted more toward immigrants from Eastern Europe, Muslim countries, and South-East Asians. Just recently the British National Party (BNP) which is a neo-fascist, nationalist, anti-immigration party gained two seats on the London Assembly. So one sees a stronger racist element in main-stream politics in the UK than in the USA (don’t get me wrong, Hillary Clinton claiming that she’s staying in the race because of RFK’s assassination is just as racist if not more so, but it is more veiled).

At the end of the day racism has to be combated everyday in both countries so that its spillover effects don’t undermine liberal secular multiculturalism.

The BNP are narrow minded uneducated idiots, as far as what the bloke before said about them gaining two seats in London that is true, but what is even more true is that they lost several seats in the North to the Conservitives.

P.S, are you Tableux?

theenglishman! Yes, its me tabby.:0)

I agree with you on the BNP. They honestly believe that England's white majority are a minority. They're retarded.
