    But what proportion of non-white is sufficient to be classified as an ethnic minority? 25%, 12.5%? And why am I reminded of South African and Southern US old race laws?
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    my statement that “white middle class, white working class, white men, white women, white gays, white children” are racist, while rhetorically hyperbolic, was a clear reference to the fact that racism is not an exclusive characteristic of any one demographic.

    The media has a habit of taking people's conversations and statements out of context.

    I remember the Archbishop of Canterbury saying something about poor people one Christmas. It was translated by the press as a comment on the coalition there as if you read the entire thing he clearly didn't

    A more recent example is Corbyn's suppose promise to wipe out existing student loans when all he said is we will look at it.

    This is why Maybot copied Bliar and Camoron by giving short statements that mean nothing.

    Problem with Social Sciences is they don't respect different countries have different attitudes to racial issues.

    So in the UK we tend to go on looks which I know creates it's own problems.

    Also regardless of what country you live in you self identify. Though if your self identity conflicts with what society thinks you are you get into trouble.

    I found it interesting when traveling in Australia and New Zealand that these completely white looking people with Anglo-Saxon names claimed to be aborigine or Moari.

    I was later told by a Brit who worked in Oz with deprived people, that it got absolutely ridiculous as you got these blonde blue eyed people with Anglo-Saxon names claiming discrimination due to their ethnicity when the real issue was poverty causing lack of opportunity.

    Bremoaners are an oppressed minority at 48%.

    No he didn't, he said he'd deal with it.

    Except:

    No-one has ever said replacement will cost £200 billion.

    The figures quoted are for its 30+ year lifecycle so annually it would cost between 3 and 5 bln per year somewhat short of the 100 billion student loan writeoff.

    What would you do with the 7000 people that work for BAE submarines or the several thousand at Faslane or the highly skilled engineering and scientific communities maintaining the weapons, developing new sonar systems, propulsion systems, nuclear reactors? Don't say something else because you would have spent the money elsewhere
