    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24653643 "For the most part, people who hurt… they come from hurt. It is a cycle." Thomas says she tries to do something to break down racial stereotypes every day. No grand gestures. "The biggest thing you can do is just be kind to another human being. It can come down to eye contact, or a smile. It doesn't have to be a huge monumental act."

    http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/oct/29/italy-immigrants-treviso-honorary-citizens Treviso is changing, albeit slowly. Racism exists, he says, but so does a vibrant civil society that over the years has succeeded in welcoming immigrants despite the hostile tone of local politicians. "I understand that some people are scared but, slowly but surely, we are getting to know one another and people are realising that they don't have to be scared," he says. "You can see things are changing – slowly, but they are changing."  Anna Caterina Cabino, the council member responsible for the honorary citizenship proposal, says: "The governing class managed to shore itself up for such a long time because it campaigned on fear, on xenophobia, on the defence of presumed local interests, on law and order, on the identification of an enemy … but this does not reflect social reality."

    "I didn't know whether to laugh or cry when i read this newspaper story. Attorney General Dominic Grieve has said politicians need to "wake up" to the problem of corruption in some minority communities. Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Mr Grieve said he was referring mainly to "the Pakistani community". He said some people arrive in the UK from societies with a "favour culture" – but it must be made "absolutely clear" that is unacceptable in Britain."http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-25062450 Have i overlooked the culture of crony capitalism, the old school tie, the free-mason handshake, in certain Tory quarters? And what about the corrupt dealings British governments and companies have with foreign countries? Did anyone mention BAE?…What is it the Bible say about those with sin casting stones and more secularly  those in glass houses shouldn't throw stones either

    I couldn't resist posting this in response to a early commentALB – "I wonder if he's a redhead" A man who slashed his neighbour's throat with a butcher's knife after being taunted about his ginger hair has been jailed for life for murder…  Storie told police after he was arrested that Mr Findlay would never call him "ginger-heided" again http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-25859849 — You got to watch out for those red-heads…fiery tempers are in their DNA, they are all genetically disposed to tribal violence…just ask those who remember little Billy Bremner and Alan Ball !!! (or was that because they were wee men?)

    http://dissidentvoice.org/2014/02/where-did-white-people-come-from/ "When and where did people first become white? It’s not clear. But it happened fairly recently, and not necessarily in Europe. Why does it matter? Because color-based notions of racial hierarchy continue to plague us"

    There seems to be some sort of justice in the world after all. Harper, the minister for (i.e.against) immigration, who was forced to resign when he was exposed as employing an "illegal immigrant" as a cleaner, was the person who thought up and authorised the "Immigrants — Go Home" vans.

     There are many kinds of justice in the world.  And they're all fucked! You can thank the social force of capital for that.  Downing Street, that bastion of truth, says that there is no evidence to suggest that this disgusting little insect knew that he was employing an illegal immigrant.  Which means they've hidden the evidence.  Probably had it hoovered up by someone working for the minimum wage.  You know how it goes.

    This thread had experience of this 'scientific' neo-racism based on genetics which this article discusses. http://uk.news.yahoo.com/forms-racism-arise-science-research-133114264.html#AIsflH1
