At the end of the day.....IF you feel British and have integrated into life in London and taken on the culture of the UK then you are British.
BUT bare in mind the old adage....to much milk in your coffee and its no longer a coffee!!!

When most minorities 'kick up a fuss', nothing happens.

In the USA racism is alive and kicking like a stallion. Most whites won’t own up to it, as it’s considered politically/culturally incorrect, but you can bank on it, it’s there. And it goes from the bottom of society to the very top. I believe some of our political “leaders” are the most despicable racists of all. It offends me when they skate around the issue, and when they use buzz words and phrases to convey their hatred and contempt for minorities; ie “Takers”, “Welfare Queens”, “Foodstamp President”, “the 47%’rs”, “the President isn’t like us. He doesn’t understand America”, etc, etc, etc. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out this is racist trash talk to the core.
It’s also quite obvious that it’s no coincedence all these gun-toting, bomb carrying vigilante groups seem to pop up when there’s a democrat, ESPECIALLY A BLACK ONE, in the Whitehouse. That’s when the Waco’s, Ruby Ridge’s, and Timothy McVey’s come out to play.
I’d wager 10-1 odds that if Cliven Bundy were a black man, a Mexican, an Asian, etc there would be no armed militia around to cover his backend. Instead he would be labeled a “welfare cowboy” and would be scorned by all the white do-gooders out there.
I guess many of us just want some group(s) to kick around, call “different” and intimidate so that we can feel better about our own sorry asses. It’s sad, if you ask me. We can be a really ugly animal...
