That's totally contrary to what he said in the OP. He's on about the government stopping immigration. And I don't understand why they allow people
to emmigrate here when theres nothing for them (my mistake there's the welfare state, because thers no job opportunities) XXXN30 gives you an idea of
why this happens.
You will see there is good and bad in every race, religion, culture, gender.
Did he not state that himself in the OP. Wake UP!!!

I believe you should not be worried about getting bombed by a 'muslim' terrorist as much as getting robbed by local on the side of the street. Or
even glassed during a night out. Get me?
He already lives in a culture that has a high incidence of casual violence, so he's already got a good chance of being killed on the street. But he
thinks he should be worried also about suicide bombers maybe thats irrational but it's still valid.
Yeah exactly. I wonder how often they would get it if they were going for a night out to the bar, pub, club for a round of drinks an a drunken fool
starts them up by singling them out as middle eastern and told to get out of this country..
Their are so many examples proven in getting a job, at the workplace or just in the general eye of the public that first impression does count and
being different will initially downgrade you.
Do you think you've gone a bit too far, he's asking if he's racist because he feels he can't trust them, it's not about whether he's a racist
because he doesn't like their skin colour, he doesn't want to discriminate he's just wary of people.
Your like a white american who were worried by the blacks intermingling with their race in schools, on busses and public places. You are judging a
whole race through a handful of people. Should we judge every american as being greedy red neck war mongerers?
And we've lived with them for 30 years+ and no real problems. No his fear is about being blown up when they become radicalised, not whether his mom
is going to run off with a black guy.
Understand their religion and culture first hand before you go making your decision on what definitely has been influenced by the media and
government. Did we not see through their lies already?
What he doesn't understand is 'they ghetto-ize themselves, don't speak the language and have an innate distrust themselves of white
people'(they're racist). So the media and government have the same message then don't trust muslims from what you say, I don't think that's true.
I think your missing the subtlety involved and in truth he's not being that subtle, let's try not to throw the word racism around like it's a fad,
let's give him the benefit of the doubt and let's not be so quick to judge.
