Re: Last TV show/Box Set you watched? (Flag spoilers)
You seem to be hung up on this. I think there are no Asian racists? And no I do not consider your Asian step mother who lives where exactly an authority on billions of Asian people. Sorry about that.

It is true that most people of any race prefer to marry within their group though and that applies to any race, but most of the people I know are married to Asians despite not being Asian and the kids don't face many bullying issues or anything like that.
In London perhaps there is a reason why different groups are suspicious of one another. For instance the prison population is 14% black despite being only 3% of the population. It creates distrust and different communities tend to stick to their own in a multicultural society. If a certain demographic is more likely to carry out crime etc, then it breeds suspicion.
Edit: Blacks are 3% of the total population, so in London there are obviously a lot more black people and they make up a significant prison population at 14% of the national total. I am sure the genuine Asian prison population is much lower. Asians tend to have stronger families, better education etc, so if one group is not nurturing children and criminality is much higher then you can see why some among them might think negatively about sharing a city with those who cause a lot of crime and nurture less. I am sure some white bloke up in Rotherham doesn't think too highly of changes in his community too. Is it racism? Maybe, but that seems to be a natural consequence of unregulated multiculturalism.
So, I don't really see that as being beyond the pale in terms of attitudes. Al for instance has his views and Beanz would call it racist, but it hasn't emerged from a vacuum. Any group can be and is racist. In fact it is almost a badge of honor to move to England and not integrate. That too is terribly racist.
I don't see the argument, but Fenster seems on point to point out propaganda in television in the main post that kick started this.
