is really depressing.
get relentlessly racially abused from shitty little kids and scumbag thugs
I know I should, but I can't. I remember a documentary which used to be on in the 90s about a white guy and a black guy going around applying for the same jobs. Obviously, the white guy got most of the interviews. They were friends at the beginning, as I recall, but the strain the obvious discrimination was placing their friendship under meant they ended up having massive arguments all the time.
Britain has a fucking long way to go, I reckon.
attacking Asian's verbally and physically. Really disgusting stuff
It isn't all like that; they're making a selective documentary to reinforce a stereotype about poor areas of Britain that everyone is aware of, but is far less black and white than Panorama makes it seem.
But obviously when it does happen, and it does, it's shit.
i know it's not all like that, the areas i live near and work in are comparable to the area in the film and it's not half as bad here as they made it sound there.
but that kind of thing does go on too much, mainly from people who when they come into my work can barely spell or write their own names and addresses on the membership forms. that might be a coincidence.
yeah it's grim
kids, especially scunner kids, are fucking arseholes. They'll pick on anything, any sign of weakness. Even if she wasn't an ethnic she might get something similiar.
really fucking sour though. What can you do about this sort of thing? Fuck all
if they want the country to themselves lets see how long they'd last on their own
Maybe if we set up a campaign site - where we lobied that any signs of racist abuse was met with a full front handed slap to the cheek. Every time. No concessions. Make it cool - like those daft poverty wrist bands. It could save the country!
(Full disclosure - yes, I have been in the pub.)
being thugs n all...
