We Now Have English Owners! Chip Shop Owner Caught in Racism Row After Buying Out East Asian Managers

Sam Webb, Daily Mail (London), August 29, 2013

A chip shop boss has insisted he’s not racist after putting up a banner boasting that the business now had ‘English owners’.

Paul Bradbury insists customers ‘want to know they are going to be served by somebody English’–even though the shop had previously been run by English people of east Asian descent and of Greek descent.

He and his wife Rachel took over the Chippy On The Green, in Hapton Road, Padiham, Lancashire less than a fortnight ago.

But the couple have already provoked a furious row with a banner across the front of the shop that reads: ‘Under new management with English owners’.

Burnley’s Lib Dem MP Gordon Birtwistle and the mayor of Padiham have both issued demands for it to be removed.

But defiant Mr Bradbury has no plans to take it down.

He said: ‘I’m not racist. Anyone who thinks I’m a bigot is narrow-minded.

‘People want to know they are going to be served by somebody English. People have said to us that they are glad somebody English is serving them and that the sign made them want to come in.

‘They’ve never had anyone in the shop before. We are advertising that we are English.

‘You wouldn’t want your fish and chips served to you by someone Turkish, or from wherever, because it wouldn’t be as good a recipe as it would be from somebody English.

‘It doesn’t matter what colour or race you are, we’ll serve you. We welcome everyone here. I won’t be taking the sign down.

‘We don’t want to upset anyone and we aren’t racist. We wouldn’t be serving foreign food if we were racist.’

The shop, which sells traditional English takeaways alongside Chinese food, kebabs and pizza, re-opened on Tuesday.

Gordon Birtwistle MP said: ‘I would rather it didn’t say what it did. It would be better if it said “serving good quality food to the community”. If it is causing consternation to people, it should either be taken down or changed.’

Mayor of Padiham, Coun Vincent Pridden said: ‘I don’t think it’s a very positive message to be putting out in the community. If it’s causing upset, the council should look into it.’

Gary Curson, a teacher at West Craven High School in Barnoldswick who lives near the shop, said he would not set foot in the takeaway again.

He said racism was ‘alive and well in Padiham’.

He said: ‘We’ve used that chip shop when it was run by other people, who were well liked and respected in the community. I wouldn’t go in there now and neither would many of the people I know.

‘Half a dozen local people I’ve spoken to since yesterday have said they are disgusted by what it says.

‘In this day and age, it shouldn’t matter who you are being served by.

‘It’s not a positive message to put out to children which go to local schools that you should prefer to go into a shop run by one sort of people. It’s not good for them or for the community.

‘Burnley is supposed to be an enterprising, multi-cultural place. Asian people run the shop just down the road. This gives a very bad impression of the area and could well upset people.’

Local councillor Joanne Greenwood said: ‘It’s not helpful at all and it could well upset people and I can see why. I certainly don’t think it’s necessary to say that.’

Lancashire Police say they have not yet received any complaints about the banner.

    English run business in England? I mean, what are the odds, right?

    • me

      Heaven forbid that the English should have anything in their own country…..

      • cancerous bananna

        It would be like a black serving you chinese food.
        Oh it sickens me…… that it has gone this far.

    “A chip shop boss has insisted he’s not racist after putting up a banner boasting that the business now had ‘English owners’”
    An English owner in England serving traditional English food accused of “racism” because he states what he is. The insanity continues,,,,,

  • MekongDelta69

    Wouldn’t you LOVE to see – JUST ONCE – some guy come out and ‘insist’ that, “I am racist. You have a problem with that?”

    JUST ONCE…

    • seapeaMP

      Let’s be honest, RACIST means WHITE.

      Just like the N-WORD means Black, the R-WORD means White.
      It’s derogatory, demeaning and de-humanizing, it’s a Hate word.

      It’s a word that helps anti-Whites commit White Genocide with a clear conscience.

      • Sick of it

        They’ve given the impression on numerous occasions that the only way for racism to disappear is for white people to disappear. They claim that we are inherently racist, blah blah, etc. So yeah, any excuse to commit genocide against us.

        • cancerous bananna

          Its not that we are inherently racist.. just observant. They breed like flies, no wonder life is meaningless. We take care of our children and our communities, life has meaning.. I could go on and on.
          I suppose that makes us equals on a natural selection level. But who wants to live like that?

          • Sick of it

            We used to raise large families who were well cared for. Obviously it’s not economically feasible today outside of a community like the Amish.

          • cancerous bananna

            Still though, you’d be surprised at the sacrifices you’d make to make your child happy despite the money you earn or gets taken from you.
            That leads me to what a hateful thing alimony is… but thats a whole other subject.

          • Sick of it

            I’m not surprised at all, my sister has three kids and I spoil them whenever possible. And yes alimony is a hateful thing because it’s not for the children and often misspent by the mother.

          • HJ11

            Who cares about “economically feasible”? We must have large White families. We won’t starve. We can use the same government safety nets that are allowing non-Whites to out breed us. But, first, we have to shed some false ideas that we adopted when this country was more White. We are not in that country anymore, and we need to understand that we owe nothing to non-Whites such that we feel we shouldn’t over burden the system. It is no longer our system. Use it to breed more Whites. Whites who breed more have a greater chance of surving into the future. It’s a simple evolutionary principle.

        • BarnyL

          Yet they ignore the fact that black racism isn’t recognised or reported. In this way they can claim it’s a White failing.

          No black ever killed a White because of his skin colour, right?

          There is even a black man walking around with “Kill Whitey” tattooed on hi face.

          • Sick of it

            Our population reduction over time is proof of the racism of other races.

          • BonusGift

            Sadly that is a good and simple proof of the genocide committed against us.

          • Sick of it

            Read Negroland of the Arabs on OpenLibrary (DOT) org. Apparently part of Senegal was once white, as well as the regions North of the Niger River (not where it curves southward). And I mean as recently as the Middle Ages. People in the 19th century knew more about history than the brainwashed masses today.

          • BonusGift

            I think real history is just too frightening for the TPTB, and the average person for that matter. For example, we can’t have people thinking that Egypt and Mesopotamia were the result of YT can we? It is amusing and also sad that people are brainwashed into thinking that various civilizations and the people that inhabit the geographic space today are one in the same. We can’t be allowed to know that civilization can be destroyed as the people responsible for that civilization are swamped and outbreed and/or killed off by the ancestors of the people that occupy the newly created hellhole today.

          • Sick of it

            It should be obvious that people and places can change over time, just from the frustration of trying to connect medieval Islamic place descriptions with 19th century descriptions of the same places and then to translate that on top of a modern map. In 200 years most places have been renamed in Africa.

          • HJ11

            Yes, but we have far too many weak seeds among Whites. Various of these weak seeds: engage in miscegenation, have abortions of White babies, engage in family planning (the intentional limiting of White babies being born), are pathological altruists who bound off to Africa to help starving Blacks survive (who then have more Black babies), are aracial, are virulent anti-White anti-racists who attack their fellow Whites. These are the ones who will go extinct as nature grinds on. They will not be part of the Whites who survive as Whites.

            In other words the weak seed Whites among us are helping with the genocide of many White family lines–mostly their own–while those without weak seeds will continue on to breed more without weak seed genes.

            I’m convinced that we’re in a period of rapid White evolution as a result of environmental destabilization, caused not by climate change or by the rise of mountains, but by massive anti-White immigration into our niches, that is separating the weak seed Whites from the Whites with the so-called “White racist gene.” As you probably know, destabilization is often necessary for macro evolution to occur.

            Time will tell, but I also believe that the Whites of the future will be stronger and smarter and will build huge White populations. I believe that they will be the descendants of relatively few of us now alive–the ones now alive who have the White racist gene.

            These new Whites will not have the fatal flaws of the weak seed Whites but will live consciously and will care for their own alone and not for other peoples. This I believe.

      • OlderWoman

        I don’t know. Considering all the articles I’ve been reading about black on white crime I associate racism with blacks. That and my experience as a White woman who worked in a black corporation.

        • Spartacus

          Really ? Because I associate racism with logic, and blacks have none of that…

        • seapeaMP

          You poor dear. I hope your black corporate work experience hasn’t traumatized you too much. Someday we’ll have programs in place to help OUR people through their experiences with anti-White terror.

          In the meantime, I can’t recommend a book more then “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay. I first read it 23yrs ago and it’s as useful to me today as it was when I first read it.

      • BonusGift

        Bingo, bingo, and triple bingo; well put, and that is why they do it: they want “GENOCIDE with a clear conscience.”

    • We are so used to capitulation when the race-busters come out, that the fact that he seems to be standing his ground and not taking the sign down is something to cheer as being a step in the right direction! Tragic, but true. Many others would apologise and grovel, saying they did not understand how they could have been so insensitive and how many black friends they have, blah blah blah.

      • BarnyL

        I don’t have any black friends. Don’t want them, don’t need them.

        I never heard a black apologist saying how many White friends he/she has. But then they don’t need to defend themselves from attack.

  • HJ11

    The move to blend all humans into a Tan Everyman–an untermensch–continues apace in all formerly White nations.

    The biggest impediment to the blending is White people. We are the ones they want to exterminate, primarily via bedroom genocide, but ordinary old murder will also do the trick.

    A step on the path to our genocide is to erase various parts of our cultural identity–no rebel flags in the U.S. South, for example, and in Great Britain we see things such as this down the rabbit hole nonsese of keeping an Englishman from advertising that he is an Englisman and that he is selling that iconic English dish, fish and chips.

    While it sounds like this guy is craven for saying he’s not a racist, the laws in GB are such that he is really forced to say such things if he hopes not only to stay in business, but to also stay out of jail. There’s no First Amendment in GB.

    • HJ11

      More…I hear some unawakened Whites railing against the New World Order, but few of them have any real understanding about what’s going on and they apparently view the so-called NWO as primarily an economic conspiracy to meld all nations together economically.

      I say, that’s an error in thinking and if anyone bothers to pay attention to various threads in the world today, one can see that a traditional conspiracy is not needed; just a conspiracy of opinion.

      Here’s what I say is going on: There is a conspiracy of opinion that the world would be a happier, more peaceful place if those things that keep us apart are removed. This is a wrong headed view, but that’s waht some believe.

      Thus, in this sick view, all races, all nations and all religions should be blended together as much as possible. Now, as far as religions go, some will doubt this, but the way it’s working is that the rough edges are being filed off different religions so the different religions will keep their own names and their own beliefs and rituals–so long as they don’t offend anyone–and this will essentially homogenize all religions over time and make them religions of what’s happening now with pablum faiths.

      You have, for example, the Catholic Church saying, aw shucks, it twernt the Jews who killed Jesus, why the Jews are our friends. And, then you have most religions now accepting homosexuality as just another choice that is fine with them.

      It goes on and on, and you can fill in the blanks yourself. I say the above is what all the blending is about.

      They want one World. Which means, one tan race, one blended nation, one namby pamby religion.

      • Spartacus

        They(and by “they” I’m referring to one very specific group from the middle-east) want to brazilianize the whole planet – mix’em up so that they’ll be too stupid to offer any resistance, but just smart enough to understand and follow orders, work in factories, etc .

      • Sick of it

        All of which are good reasons to support otherwise oblivious people who want to fight against the New World Order.

      • NorthSea

        I remember Bubba Clinton in the 90s refusing to allow Bosnia to segregate into separate Serb, Croat, and Muslim enclaves. He insisted they all be meshed into one big pit of diversity. Thought the U.S. experience was the model to use. He was wrong on both counts. No surprise there.

      • cancerous bananna

        My pastor came by the other day, we had a beer (he’s human) talked about engines and making cars work and about dogs.. then he hit me with the I’m going to Haiti punch and before he asked me for a dime we were talking about the work I have to do now.. If I don’t do it it won’t be done nonsense…

        Plus he’s adopted a pair of kinky haireds that slobber over the pews already. Ugh

      • BonusGift

        Yes there is a NWO theme but I strongly think it isn’t what you describe. For example, you must explain why white Christian countries are for everyone but African countries are for Africans (e.g., Why is O.K. to genocide native whites in Rhodesia and South Africa?) and Asian for Asians (e.g., Why is it O.K. for the Japanese to keep out the hordes of Chinese, etc. that want in?). If it was the case that we should be “one tan race” then why would only Christian whites be asked to go away and/or become some mulatto blob (thus disappearing)? As Orwell wrote in Animal Farm: “Some animals are more equal than others.” The goal isn’t a “conspiracy of opinion”, the opinion/goal is white genocide put forth and enforced through the media, finance, etc..

        • HJ11

          Yes, it is White genocide they want. We are the main impediment to their one world, one race, one religion dreams. And, while there are no doubt some who are actually planning this, most of the dopes pushing it (such as now deceased John Lennon) are just dupes with false ideas of the nature of reality and evolution. The dupes actually believe the world will be a better place if we are all blended together.

          So, you’re not really saying anything different than I wrote, you’re just not taking the longer view of what’s going on.

          • BonusGift

            The important point we agree on, and that I think is most important; that is, they want white genocide.

        Correct me if I’m wrong, but Communists believe the concept of “private property” to be anathema.

        • BonusGift

          Marxists abhor things like the 1st and 2nd Amendments as well. ‘Gun control’ and ‘hate speech’, as well as ‘public’ ownership, are basic requirements to achieve the communist ‘paradise’ (that and killing as many people that disagree with you as possible).

  • Luca

    Didn’t we also see an article about a black fast-food shop owner in Britain advertising that she was black?

    If the PC morons make them take it down, they should put a new sign with their names and pictures on it and say “New Owners”

    • me

      Yup. You’re right. The Bantu shop owner screamed ‘raaaaycist’ because no one would frequent her ‘shop’ and buy her non-English swill. It must be great to be a non-White in the country formerly known as ‘Great’ Britain.

      • BarnyL

        Putting the blame on (White) customers for her business failing. I have seen many people enter a cafe etc.., look around, and walk out.

        They have their reasons. And it wasn’t skin colour.

        If people don’t want to come and eat in your establishment. Look to yourself. Take a close look at YOUR business.

    • OlderWoman

      That story was hilarious. She said people would enter, then leave when they saw her.

  • NorthernWind

    “Paul Bradbury insists customers ‘want to know they are going to be
    served by somebody English’–even though the shop had previously been run
    by English people of east Asian descent and of Greek descent.”

    I reject this redefining of the English. A Greek isn’t English and an Asian certainly isn’t English!

    • Northerner

      This is about English the race vs English the nationality. Are Greeks and Asians racially English? No. Are they English by nationality (either from birth or immigration)? Yes – and that’s what people are responding to.

      • Romulus

        The f they are! They are British CITIZENS NOT ENGLISH. English is not only of true northern DNA but an ethnicity.

        • Correct! They are British nationals, British Citizens, but they are not and never will be English or “Britons”, irrespective of the geography they find themselves in.

          To say that they are English is to remove the identity of the genuine English people. Many seem to forget that the very word England is a formation of Angle-land, Land of the Angles. The name is derived from the ethnicity of the the people, not visa versa!

          The chip shop owner is rightly saying that they are English, and yes, the poster above is correct, in that this is why there are accusations of racism, because to point out that notion that there are genuine English people in England is no doubt verging on a hate crime in society! (Given the reaction by Gordon Bertwistle and the libtard teacher interviewed in the piece).

          • Romulus

            Thank you. People of European ancestry are having their cultural memory erased right in front of their eyes and seem incapable of mounting a defense. It is beyond comprehension. There has to be a point where this insanity stops.

            Exactly. The difference goes further than semantics, because having legal status in a country doesn’t confer genetic status.

      They’re as English as a cubic zirconia is a diamond. You can put a pig in a ball gown, but it’s still a pig.

    • kjh64

      This is true. There is no such thing as an “English” person of east Asian and Greek descent. The former owners may be English citizens but they are not racially or ethnically English. It would be like me going to, let’s say Japan and getting Japanese citizenship, which would not be allowed because I’m White but let’s say hypothetically it was allowed. I would be a Japanese citizen but I would not nor could I ever be racially and ethnically Japanese. I would be a Japanese citizen of non-Japanese race and ethnicity.

      • borogirl54

        There are Japanese citizens who are not Japanese. There are bars and other places that have signs that say “Japanese only”. Some will serve foreigners if they accompanied by a Japanese person. I saw one white Japanese citizen, go in there and brought proof of his Japanese citizenship. The bar still did not want to serve him.

    I have seen similar signs at motels that say “American Ownership”. I make a mental note to stay in that place if I ever need a room. I know that they are going to understand me and make my stay pleasurable. The room will be clean and will not have roaches or anything like that in the room.

    These libs are afraid of their own shadows. Always terrified that any acknowledgement of racial differences or nationalist thought is the prelude to the fourth Reich marching down main street.

    East Asians and greeks are NOT EFFING ENGLISH! Even Southern alp umbrian Romans are not English,Of which I am descended. Wogs are not English! Only the Anglo- saxons are true English. Even the pritons are originally from Alba. Being a CITIZEN is not the same as the ethnicity of being anglish. Only the gaelic,germanic, and Scandinavian tribes are indigenous to north and western Europe. Im sick of ignoramuses and leftist retards

    • ms_anthro

      It’s more sinister than mere ignorance. They are trying to make indigenous Europeans and British unpersons. By denying we exist at all except as citizens within borders, they attempt to erase our cultures in one fell swoop. And if they can do that, what stops them from justifying our total destruction? We don’t even exist, after all.

      We must fight this attempted genocide with everything we have. This is a great evil being perpetrated against us and our kind.

      • Romulus

        Yes, I believe we here know they’re strategy. *sigh* Im frustrated with the insanity over the pond. If they we’re speaking of Greece circa Homer,Pythagoras,Archimedes,Plato,Socrates, and Aristotle,.. I might say they had more in common. Before the Wogs ruined Greece and Rome. Im not saying Rome didn’t have some role in their own decline but pointing out that a certain group has a history of nation wrecking.

      • Lagerstrom

        They also scoff at the notion of indigenous English and other European ethnic groups. All part of the plan. Remember the lovely Mr Jack Straw said that, ‘the English aren’t worth saving’, straight from the (w)horse’s mouth!

        • BarnyL

          More precisely, if I may say, it was something like The English as a race are a bunch of thugs who are past saving.

          I should have been more clear, I meant isn’t being a citizen of the UK called British Citizenship as opposed to English or Welsh citizenship. I didn’t realize you were from the US.

          • Romulus

            That’s quite alright. If I did reside in the UK, I would certainly be a supporter of the BNP. MR.ASHTON, I find to be an excellent commentator. I share the love of TOLKIENS England with him. When I think of The UK and Ireland , I dream of a united people, much like as described in “The real middle earth” by Brian Bates.
            I think of the beauty of the English countryside hamlets with stone cottages and pubs.

    To all of the race traitors who say they will not patronize this fine English owned business, good riddance to you. Go eat soul food from a Bantu owned greasy spoon and enjoy your food poisoning, you cretinous morons. Better yet, buy yourselves a one-way ticket to Africa and enjoy the diversity there, where you may find YOURSELVES being served and eaten..

      Chips optional.

    “Lancashire Police say they have not yet received any complaints about the banner.”

    But rest assured they’re out looking for some right now.

  • MBlanc46

    My goodness, call in the SAS. They’re upsetting people by advertising that a Lancashire chippie is run by English people.

    • NorthSea

      Is someone who owns a fish & chip shop in England a chippie? In the States a chippie is something a bit different, lol.

      • Nah, they might be a “chippery” in some areas but not a chippie. I don’t know what that is in the United States, but a “Chippie” here is the term used to describe a joiner/carpenter type by trade.

        • NorthSea

          Here, a “chippie” is old-fashioned slang for what you’d call a “slag”. Years ago Californians called the California Highway Patrol (CHP) chippies, then it slowly dawned on them what they were saying.

          • OlderWoman

            I’ve never heard that. Where did you get your information? And I never heard CHP’s called ‘chippies’. The term is ‘Chip’.

          • NorthSea

            The term “chippy” is old, old American slang. I’m talking from the 40s or 50s. The story of the California Highway Patrol I got from a TV Guide 30 or so years ago. There was a show called CHIPS. The magazine said they were gonna call it CHIPPIES, as Californians really called them, but decided they’d better not.

      • MBlanc46

        Partridge’s Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English, definition 2: “a fish and chip shop”. Partridge’s has it “chippy”. I failed to check my spelling, but the definition is correct.

      • MBlanc46

        “Lern yerself Scouse”, Volume Two, by Linacre Lane (Scouse Press, Liverpool, 1966), page 18:

        “chippy: a fish and chip shop”

        The only time that I have clear memory of encountering the word was in the north of England. Perhaps it’s a northern usage.

  • White Mom in WDC

    If you don’t like the sign, don’t look at it

  • In some parts of the South, the white American hotel and motel owners have another ace up their sleeve as far as that goes: The Confederate Battle Flag, or in the case of Mississippi, the state flag which still has the CBF within it. A motel in the South flying a CBF is saying that they’re white American owned, no Mattel Patel.

  • cancerous bananna

    Correct. Foreigners don’t know or care how much that paper absorbs and how it makes the dish palatable.

  • I live quite near to Padiham and know that area of Lancashire pretty well. In fact, I think I will now go out my way and make a special trip to buy some fish and chips from this shop!

    What people may not understand about this area, and many areas in Britain now, is that it is increasingly hard to find a GENUINE British fish and chip shop.

    We have awful Pakistani ‘fast food’ places with Halal chicken and burgers and pizzas (that do fish and chips on the side), we have Chinese takeaways which do fish and chips – and NONE of them, absolutely NONE of them are in any way on par with English fish and chips.

    I do not know what it is they do different, but it IS different. A different taste, a different smell, it is hard to explain but they are always a poor imitation of the real thing.

    When I was a child, which is only the 1980’s, there used to be proper fish and chip shops on the end of every other terraced street. Now, they are virtually all run by Chinese or other orientals, or are the Pakistani ones. I can only think of two in the whole town I live in, and one of them caters for Halal pies and such, given the demographics of the area.

    It is important to people who want proper ‘traditional’ English fish and chips. I would, without question, use this shop because it was English! The guy is right, in this area it IS a selling point! I have often had to drive to the next town just to buy a decent fish and chip tea! This is how bad it is!

    Padiham, which is for all intents and purposes a sub-section of Burnley, I believe, is still 97% or so White British. It previously enjoyed a BNP county councillor and mayor, until all that went pear-shaped.

    Good on Mr Bradbury for not backing down! That’s the way to do it!

    • Greg Thomas

      Proper ‘traditional’ English fish and chips has been declared “racist.”

    If I move to Korea do I get to call myself a Korean of American descent?

    Didn’t think so.

    • Northerner

      That’s precisely what you’d be.

      • BarnyL

        No. You would still be an American/Englishman….. who now resides on Mars.

    • BarnyL

      If you move to Mars. Does that make you a Martian?

      • Sick of it

        Actually it would, since no one else lives there.

        • BarnyL

          So when some Americans went to the Moon. They ceased to be Americans?

          I don’t think so.

          • Sick of it

            No no, just being a bit obvious. The first people to settle on Mars could honestly call themselves Martians, as no one else lives there.

  • Yes, polystyrene boxes are now the normality in a lot of places, which tends to make the batter on the fish soggy by the time you get home. Sometimes you get plain white paper with a greaseproof sheet inside, which is better. I wouldn’t mind going back to actual newspaper, especially when it is the mainstream media being used for something useful for once, but yeah, I suppose finding black ink smudges on the chips isn’t all that appealing. Nothing wrong with the plain paper though, or using a sheet of that with newspaper as a bolster to it.

    As a kid, I would read the newspaper articles whilst having my fish and chips, lol.

  • BarnyL

    “Half a dozen local people I’ve spoken to since yesterday have said they are disgusted by what it says” There are millions in Britain that have no problem with this.

    Yet the views of a few get printed.

  • BarnyL

    Another reason may be. If a black proprietor wants and needs Whites as customers. Then it might help if they got their fellow blacks to stop pissing Whites off, stop persecuting and accusing them.

  • BarnyL

    Perhaps that is what they should have put on the poster, native Briton?

      Or perhaps, “Now Serving Genuine ENGLISH Fish and Chips.”

  • Romulus

    As mr.antipodean is find of staying , the greeks you see there now are what he calls WOGS. Almost certainly not the originals, depending on who’s version of history you believe.

    • Sick of it

      Sadly, too many folks buy into the idea that modern populations are the same as the ancient populations. Genetics, archaeology, and history all say otherwise.

      • Romulus

        I find it difficult at times to connect with the general masses who can’t discuss anything outside of popular culture or non stop material consumption. Even basic historical facts are lost on most I talk to. I feel alot like Jesse waters when he interviews the public on his news segment Water’s World.

        • Sick of it

          Not too long ago some guy was trying to argue with me about Roosevelt knowing that the Japanese were going to attack Pearl Harbor ahead of time. Apparently he did not realize that even the history channel has been reporting this fact for years now. Though I read about it in a book years before I saw a documentary which mentioned it.

          • Romulus

            I remember that documentary. After what we’ve witnessed with this administration, it’s not uncommon to view governments with a healthy degree of skeptism. If there was fore knowledge or no, the Japanese were commited to attack without provocation. Justifiably, America went after them and interred nationals. Whether they lived here or not is irrelevant. They were still Japanese and therefore suspect. Interestingly enough, Hawaii is now 60% Japanese.

          • Sick of it

            I was actually skeptical of the government starting at a very young age. The modern decadent society caused me to focus more on the distant past and distant future. I just couldn’t cope with the abyss into which I was thrust, not for years. The very idea that people can be okay with the way they live today is truly frightening, because it shows a certain level of madness.

  • Bobbala

    Truth is racist.

  • Alexandra1973

    Because it’s probably a crime over there to be English, a bigger crime to admit it.

    Somehow I’m even more happy about my English ancestry!

    • OlderWoman

      As am I. I am obsessed with British programming. I seek out the programs with an all White cast.

      • Alexandra1973

        I don’t have cable TV or satellite. But my son loves his Bob the Builder DVDs, and I understand that show originates from the UK.

        And the nice part is…it’s not too diverse.

        • OlderWoman

          I gave up my tv six years ago.

          All I have is the internet.

      • NorthSea

        I fully agree. I recently posted somewhere else that I only indulge cultural activites of Eurocentric content: No professional sports, no MSM, discriminating music listening, even attention to casual conversation. It’s not impossible, just takes discipline.
        I was recently visiting a home where TV was on. I don’t own a set and haven’t for years. The monstrosity playing was one of those “realistic” talent things where desperate creatures perform for a panel of idiots for judgement.
        I was aware of this thing but seeing it was a shock. Everyone there was African or wanted to be. And I didn’t see anyone who would be suspected of being heterosexual. Disturbing yet not surprising.

  • Luca

    A sign out front that says “This Hotel is Smoke-Free and Curry-Free”.

    That should suffice.

    The fact there’s a problem about an English citizens in England getting trouble from immigrants about being a proud English owner shows how bad immigration really is in England!

    How loyal are the Greek and Italian immigrants to your British history? To the origins of your nations? To its unique culture? To your monarch? Or are they simply Greeks and Italians who speak English and live in Australia? There is more to assimilation than simply legal citizenship.

    Black Jamaicans (and every other type of black) aren’t much into “doing all this.” You Brits used to understand this — that’s why the Colonialists had to import Indians to Africa and the Carribean, because indigenous blacks refused to work.
