    I've lifted this video from the bowels of USArmyRetired's thread in the Romper Room as I feel it warrants the detachment of its original location's bias. In the video Mr. Ali voices an opinion that many would claim falls within the parameters of racism. I say it doesn't. What say ye, USMB?

    I didn't watch the entire thing, but unless he was saying one race was superior to another, it wasn't racist.

    I couldn't understand a word the interviewer was saying....damn, Brits mangle the English language.

    He said the races shouldn't interbreed and that people who do inerbreed hate their own race.

    So, so-far we're all in agreement that when someone says that they prefer the company of their own race (regardless of the colour of the person saying it), it isn't racist.

    Ravi's confession that she has difficulty understanding spoken English (even when spoken by an Englishman) is merely an added bonus.

    He did indeed. But why do I suspect that if the same sentiments were expressed by a white man, they'd be verbally assaulted with accusations of racism?

    That's pretty stupid. Maybe even racist.

    But what are you going to do? They guy's dead now.
