People with a moral superiority complex would have everything banned. It is galling that inoffensive innocent traditions are to be lost due to PC. Change is inevitable, but this is plain daft. Making a song and dance about nothing.

Perception is the cause of racial tension, negative views that are the problem not the solution.

We all bleed the same colour.

Would you feel the same if black people whitened their faces to appear as ghosts at Halloween?

Aren't we all just looking for racism, rather than accepting that we all have different skin colours ?

Many white men have played Red Indians, in cowboy movies, and they had to wear make up to show a different skin tone.... I don't remember anybody making a big fuss about that!

Those of us that treat all colours the same and judge them by their personality, not their skin colour, are the only ones who treat them as equals!

This is modern England everything has to be poetically correct, what a sad state we are now in. Old values - traditions - customs- are being wiped out and replaced by the latest must have fads which will not last . Makes me wonder about peoples values and what they have forgotten

Nothing wrong with showing preference for one's own race.

It's just national pride incarnate and there's not a damm thing wrong with having pride in one's nationality.

Nor is there anything wrong with stating the bloody obvious that all races are NOT the same in strengths and weaknesses.

In any case multiculturalism promotes racism.

Encouraging immigrants to establish their own colonies / cultures in parallel with that of the guest nature culture is also racist.

The ONLY time that matters of race should be of concern is when it is used to unjustifiably creat friction otherwise to pretend it doesn't exist by attempting to stifle any and all reference to races in all matters is just Orwell's "Newspeak" dressed up fancy and within spitting distance from burning books.

It's not racism until someone mentions it.....
Some people are obsessed with it.....
