Well if the authorities catch the "racist bonehead" with a knife he will get upwards of 6 months in gaol just for possession these days and if found to be wielding or threatening members of the public could quite possibly get a whole lot more.
The mindset of a skinhead has little to do with nationality and a lot more to do with racist Nazi ideology really.
Definition of racism 1 :a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race 2 a :a doctrine or political program based on the assumption of racism and designed to execute its principles b :a political or social system founded on racism 3 :racial prejudice or discrimination

You're both right , because it is too easy to use the term racist for some , and I forgive it as their lack of learning
But , it really does melt your bones when you know you're being falsely accused .
It boiled down to we'll call you racist if you talk about innocents, which is about where those imagining some convoluted form
of social justice have got in their understanding so far . Someone or something must be helping them into that bubble . It doesn't seem particularly wrong to be instantly defensive of innocent members of the community , but they a carry a weaponized sting around for the job

This is like saying it is racist to state a true fact like, there are a lot of blacks in prison, it's not racist.

TBH I need some sympathy All I did was mention that there seemed to be a disproportionately large contingent of foreign innocents in the central part of town on an infrequent visit I made to town yesterday .
Suddenly they were like " you can't say that , it's racist !"
So I was like WTF? I is no racist and you know it! ? (I have got a long history of being the opposite of a bigot or a racist) . I was just making a point of fact that were a surprisingly large number of innocents there , just way more than there used to be. No hate involved -whatsoever
And then it was , "there you go again, you effing racist!" And they were triggering big time . The time they'd heard twice they wouldn't listen to anything I said . It just got worse as I wasnt just going to take that , it s a serious accusation
I folded and walked away I am gutted . I'm thinking they've been brainwashed, pretty thoroughly . The I word is a trigger word , triggered sjw is almost definitely a thing . And the I word in any context triggers them
I am NO racist I can promise you that , could have proved that to my accusers, and they should know it anyway . They were having none of it , because,
I'd said the I word . I had quantified the I word, even worse . And now I'm Dr.Evil for even having a point of view which was purely observational.
I'm thinking I should give up political comment entirely, just never say anything about the state of the world again to anybody . Just go with the vacuous into the vacuum cleaner . I feel dirty , and like my brain has been rubbed with a grater . I wouldnt advise using that word , ever . its a trigger for hatred and I fell foul of it yesterday . I'm now a nervous wreck , and honestly I did not stick my neck out for further punishment , but by God was that being prepared . Its frightening
