In this era of Political Correctness its clear that there are problems appearing.

For example we are told we live in a 'Multi-cultural' society when its not so! No we live in a society of many cultures, many move away from the rest of society and create a sort of White or Black only area.

We can say whiteboard but not blackboard?

The Christmas lights didn't go up this year in one nearby town, fear of offending the Asian community, the thing is the Asian community don't mind and they are very tolerant. Now people blame them!

Whats your view?

some times they go WAYYYYY over the top, i had this discussion with Centauri a few months back on the way to Church, some people are WAY too sensitive, and sometimes people try to think they know what offends others!!

i am hoping the internet will make available a world wide view of our lives on this world,
a time/behavioral perspective of us, humans, to be seen as how things are, as our time
is so short here. no time for hate, very little time enough to breath in life as a
community, a family, as a single individual...

theres a suburb not far from here, when the train i was on stopped there, u look out the window people walking around drinking alcohol, drugged up, chain wrapped around fist....i mean this suburb has copped a lot of flak, but if they want it to have a good reputation instead of changing laws and rules, maybe they should work WITH the people, such as karls example of the asian community - had they have worked with them they would have discovered that they didnt mind, but they didnt and now people hate them for what they wernt offended by...

The issue is clearly worldwide, somehow i thought it was mainly the UK.

I am sorry you all contend with this.

yeah, it was strange because it happened nowhere else but that suburb - just there... but i guess there will always be groups of idiot minorities wherever you go who are willing to disgrace thier own countries flag and name
