THE devastated family of a nine-year-old boy who hanged himself say he took his life after racist taunts by Asian bullies.
.... He said one kid even said to him, My dad says all the white people should be dead.

I hope I am not being too aggressive or rude.
I am not saying the UK dosent a problem with (a minority) of UK Muslims, but I get angry at the usual ‘the UK is a dhimmi and conquered nation’ stuff that I read on here. 99% from people who have never been to the UK, and just believe what FR, Rush, rightwing radio and Fox tells them. Much of it is not only wrong, but hysterical.
You at least have been here, so whilst we may disagree, I respect your opinion more than most.
Banter is a blood sport in the UK, so, I remain your friend as I enjoy an impassioned exchange of thoughts.
Respect returned. . .especially since you are a Scot (UK’s version of a Texan, independent and hardy).
Cheers, my FRiend. . .and
Would the use of the word "paki" get one into more trouble than openly voicing the opinion that Mohammed was a delusional pedophile?
How about the level of trouble that one would get into in the UK over openly burning a Quran?
Or publicly voicing the opinion that Islam is incompatible with Western civilization? Or openly expressing a desire to nuke Mecca?
We KNOW that "paki" is a pejorative term that some people will get upset over. You need to understand that it's not that we don't KNOW, it's that we don't CARE.
That was very impressive. Rarely do we see that level of discourse here or anywhere else.
I think the word ‘Paki’ has become the n-word because Muslims and leftists have used the vilification of a mildly offensive word to advance their agenda and to silence people who criticize the Islamists.
For God’s sake, we call the British limeys and sorts of things and people are not trying to shut that down. It’s a shame that it has become verboten — it may be a little crude, but it’s not that crude. No more offensive than saying Jap for Japanese which was common during World War II. That was crude. But it is hardly on the scale of the n-word.
I’ve been to the UK many times and have never used the word because it isn’t polite conversation. We’ve come along way since the time when we had real freedom of speech and people who hear a few off-colors comments and go about their business and not go into cardiac arrest over an imagined offense.
For years, the UK tolerated the rantings of Anjem Choudary who screamed death to Britain, death the Queen, death to freedom, death to everything in the West and who hates Christians and vilifies them — and that was not considered offensive? He is vile beyond belief and deserves to summarily arrested, tried for treason and shot by a firing squad. But it’s taken forever just to ban the vile organizations he has created. And yet people get worked up about “Paki’s.” Good grief.
The offense business is a one way street that only advances a leftist and Islamist point of view. No one is ever offended if a white person or a Christian or Jew or anyone who isn’t in the protected class is vilified and insulted. Indeed, the insults and attacks are non stop.
Yes, NSS, but he asked "Please dont use the word paki. Esp when its a British story." If the word "Paki" offends in the UK, who cares. We should be able to say that here if we want to.
Response: I would not argue too strenuously against your statement. I meant poor in the sense of poor spirited.
I do not bow well.
