I suffered my first real dish of racism today.
As my friends and I were sitting in Burnley's answer to Central Park, a large gang of about 16 Asian youths was walking past us, about 25 metres away.
There were 7 of us, 4 boys and 3 girls. The boys were playing with our frisbee and the girls were sat in the middle of our square-ish thing reading.
They started shouting:
"Oi, give me a throw of your frisbee!"
"Oi, you white cunts, he wants to throw your fucking frisbee. I'll snap it over your white faces in a minute, you pieces of fucking shit etc."
"Listen up lads, this is our country now. What the fuck are you doing here? Fuck off somewhere else, you white pieces of fucking shit etc. etc."
They were pretty far away, so we just ignored them and carried on.
"You think we're not for real? Oi you white motherfuckers, I've got a fucking blade."
One of them has hold of a large Rambo knifelol. They then turned their attention to the girls.
"Oi, you little white slags. Can we cut your pussies off with this and put them on chicken burgers, you fucking white cunts?"
Then they drifted off into the distance.
Race relations in Burnley - a little frayed, I think. Have you ever suffered racist abuse from ethnic groups? I hadn't in the past. I'd had 'white' somethingorother shouted the odd time, but not on this scale.
