    Yah ... Seriously
    They got sacked ofc but only because they had the misfortune of having their racism caught on camera

    The funny thing is, BBC did the exact same documentary 5 years later. Not much changed.

    You can swap with me for the day, you can tally up how many times you get stopped and searched by the police
    so you get stopped and searched by the cops on a regular basis? quit blaming it on the color of your skin and take an honest look at your behavior.

    with the ACLU and Al "bookman" Sharpton looking to burn anyone they can for "racism" there isn't a white cop out there who is going to risk pulling that crap these days.

    So you acknowledge that even if you think another race receives some particular benefits, that doesn't mean you want to trade or that you're a hypocrite for being happy in your own skin.

    If that's true, then why is it that when Caine noted some benefits of being a minority, you responded by asking him if he wanted to trade races as if that proved some point?

    Caine noted some benefits of being a minority. You noted some benefits of being white. You're both happy with being who you are.

    unfortunately yes. "wah, wah, wah da man be keeping me down. Racism is the reason I can't get a good job...never mind the fact that I dropped out of high school and have the motivation of a dead fish...it's still all whitey's fault."

    I have got stopped and searched before on the basis of my race. Many Black and Asian youths have.
    I have spoke about it before on the forums. The only criteria the police officer who stopped me explained was because to paraphrase, I matched the description (I was black) and I had a hoodie ... that is it.

    Ah well. UK needs to take a leaf out of US's book and get our own ACLU then and Sharpton

    Observe: the facade cracks; the incipient racism shines through.

    So you weren't stopped on the basis of your race, you were stopped based on the fact that you fit some basic description of a person who had committed a crime in the area.

    If I lived in a neighborhood where a lot of crimes were committed by blonde dudes wearing yankee hats and jeans, I would be stopped by the police all the time. That doesn't mean that they would be stopping me because they're bigoted against white people.

    I wouldn't wish to trade my skin colour because it is part of my history and something of my culture even if I think white people have it easier.

    I don't see any benefit to being Black in US or indeed abroad. African Americans are the most disadvantaged race in US imo, both educational and financial wise. Many are likely to be born in a single parent household or a low income family. So whatever benefits he claims they are receiving, I do not see or agree with.
    And individuals of every race is capable of being racist and I'm sure there are many racists who are Black so his second point is moot.

    That was just one example and when I spoke about it on the forum, I wasn't particularly bothered because even if they stopped me, it wasn't that traumatic in that instance but I have been stopped and searched over a dozen times in the last few years for no good reason for what I believe was no reason than my skin colour.
    Most Blacks in London/UK, especially Black/Asian youths are stopped and unfairly targeted because of their background and little else. Hell the Chief constable admitted previously that the Met Police is "institutionally racist"
