I have recently been working on a project with a friend which involves interacting with the public, and it's safe to say i'm pretty shocked by some of the reactions he gets compared to me.

I'm 23 and white, he's 23 and black. We have both lived in Britain our entire lives and grew up in similar environments. We don't talk or act any differently, we have the same group of friends, we like the same things......the only difference is our skin colour.

I'm not stereotyping, but I find mainly in the older generations, white people seem to genuinely dislike being approached by him and give really bitter/nasty replies before walking off.

Whereas me, I generally get a sincere and polite, "sorry im in a hurry" or at worst "no", I've never been told to "fuck off" or "go home."

It really pisses me off how arrogant an racist some people are towards him because he's the nicest guy you could wish to meet.

Ultimately, he's grown up the same way as me, in the same environment. He is no less British than me in any way. I just wish some of the racist uneducated shit spouting filth we have to deal with would stop and actually THINK for a second before they act in a certain way or say these things.

Racism is way to common in my opinion, be it subtle underlying racism or out in the open verbal racism, the UK needs to really think about the way it perceives and treats these people as they are no different to us.

As I said in the title....A persons skin colour does not define them as a person.

Skin Shouldn't define the person... but we have to face it-WE LIVE IN RACIST TIMES....REGARDLESS OF racial mixing.... Bringing mixed children into a hurtful, and cruel world, where no matter the numbers, they will be judged by the supposedly coveted-Because full black people are supposed to be envious of them...Right??,'brown skin' that they have..... VERY SAD..

Yes, Korenna, you are right....Too right...I am an example of someone who has been unsupported,harrassed and spoken down to by the black community), after lies told against me by a mixed race relative(Who is condoning INCEST(trying to set up her murderer brother, with his own cousin!! The rest of the family support her too!!) AND OTHERS SUPPORT HER!! DISGUSTING!!)-THEY ALWAYS BELIEVE MIXED RACE PEOPLE MUST BE INNOCENT AND BLACK PEOPLE ARE ALL LIARS!! Mixed race people get marvelled over due to their mix, and black people, some of the very people creating them HYPE THEM, and allow them to be CONCEITED!! BLACK PEOPLE NEVER LEARN FROM PAST MISTAKES AND ARE RELIVING SLAVERY (Whether they like to believe it or not!!)BY UPLIFTING NON-BLACK PEOPLE OVER BLACKS!! SHAME!!

Hopefully in 30 years time this will not be a problem but thats what they thought 30 years ago as well. It might take 30/40 years for the generations post 1900 to 1960 to die out and hopefully with this kind of thinking.

Agreed a bad person is a bad person not becaues of what their colour is. The same goes for if a person is good it doesn't matter what their skin tone is

I'm good,Dinie, how are you? Lol interracial mixing isn't going to get rid of racism at all, even SOME mixed race people will tell you that - well the ones who actually have their heads screwed on that is!! Anyone who thinks otherwise is clearly deluded!

True... Especially, as the mixing that goes on is almost entirely white/ethnic... This just emphasizes the idea of white supremacy, and doesnt actually include other mixes.. Which happen just as much as white/ethnic mixes... Someone I know is Bangladeshi and she and her Chinese husband have just married..Not uncommon, or strange.. Unless you are some ignorant fool...Those who delude themselves, as you rightfully say, will argue against even ethnic people intermarrying... Such is their dislike of people not following ideas of white supremacy.. Nonsense!!

I know what you mean, one of my old school friends is Thai and 7 years ago she married an Indian man, and you would not BELIEVE some of the racist comments people said to her at the time!! Some of the worst ones came from two of her aunties, who are both married to white men!!! KMT!!

I have been through some shit because I speak the truth and have stated many times that due to disrespect from wm,and the fact that I don't find them overly attractive/better more than other men!! A man is just a man!!

Some Thai's and Filipinas are the worst for thinking that w.p, are somehow better than their own people...And they openly show this behaviour.. W.p in many cases represent WEALTH for those of poorer backgrounds... This is not always the case, many of these same boasting women, marry BROKE wm, and don't always have status that they crave and try to show off about! Haha.. In my case,people have openly shunned me for arguing otherwise, and it has come from Asians AND w.p who seem to think that they can BULLY OTHERS INTO THEIR THINKING...AFTER TWO YEARS OR MORE, IT HASN'T WORKED AND ISN'T LIKELY TO...Each to their own, but, my life is not their business..Just like your friends life is none of their business..If it wasn't successful, THEN IT WOULDN'T WORK..Good for her.. PEOPLE LIKE HER AUNTS NEED TO GET A LIFE AND STOP CHATTING FUCKERY TO HER OR OTHERS THAT THEY HAVE A VIEW ABOUT!!

Wow. I'm in this program at school called AVID. I'm African-American and I'm one of the smartest people in class. The only grades I make are A's. But it's so sad how racist you are.

I don't think you are East Asian no because some East Asians are innocent because any one can be anything online but i am multiracial i am mixed with 7 different races but i look like i am mixed with 3 different races those were the dominant genes and part of my genes Asian , i am more proud of my English ancestry than Asian ancestry and i don't mind the English men being my pussy lover specially the nice and fine looking ones Lol i don't think Asian men are attractive i am very exotic and pretty i can have any men in these world but Asian men are not my cup of tea .
