It depends how one "favours" a race?
I'm not sure what you mean. If you favour one race above others in law, society, freedoms and rights, then yes, absolutely that is racist.
As for anything else, I'm confused. I don't know how a person can "favour" one race in friendship or relationship in life. Surely you know Black,
Asian, European people?
If you were to limit your friendships and relationships to only people of your own race, consciously, I'd say that's more xenophobic than racist.
Ultimately, people are free to have their opinion and live their life to their own laws in these respects. But the moment it crosses the line into
restricting the rights of others, then there's a problem.
When it's the leadership of a country, it is in direct violation of Human Rights and public opinion.
I am all for the idea of putting certain groups of people first in housing and so on, when a nation can barely manage as it is. But this has to be
done very carefully, and with the right intentions.
As I've said, instead of making the very simple statements of "British first" and "end immigration", people need to think logically of why people
would choose to leave their own country and come here, and most of the time, it's because of unfair restrictions and the damage we have caused to
their own economy.
