When did you move to America?Flairon wrote: ↑Fri Oct 16, 2020 12:46 pmAbsolutely Tone. And if you check my posts, I have been consistent in the points I made, which were basically, 1.) I did not understand why people got upset by what is a peaceful protest and 2.) that racism does exist in the U.K. Trust me, when I first came to the States, I had an old black lady spit on the floor in front of me and always had young African American lads stepping to my wife, asking why she was with me. Even before I moved here, a black lad from England tried to tell us how we are all racist in England. Ultimately I believe I have a fairly balanced view. I do not attend protest, or shout loudly from the roof top about the injustice of the world. I do however respect another person's right to protest, and peaceful protests are fine by me, so long as they do not delay my travel home.
I certainly do not belief that either position makes me a snowflake or guilt of social signally ffs.
Some of the vitriolic statements leveled against me, I suspect says more about the people making them, than it does about me.
I agree that before the turn of the century,there was lots of racism in this country,but things have changed a lot this millennium..Equality in the work place is so strict now.You cannot get away with the sort of behavior that occurred before..One slip of the tongue and you will be sacked and out the door.
