Can a black person be racist in UK?
Are Asians justified to denounce soldiers who go to war in Afghanistan and Iraq?
Is the English Defence League another means used by a group of people to express their bigotry ideas?
Why do some use the name of religion to practice terrorism?
Is religion used worldwide to justify killing innocent people?
Is Islamic extremism practised by just a selected few ?
Is Christianity used by white supremacist to oppress black people a thing of the past?
The dislikes between Blacks and Asians, West Indians and Africans, and within different cultures of the same ethnicity is that prejudice?
Is prejudice a natural circumstances that occurs between individuals in a multicultural society or is it a new dimension of racism?
Should we embrace our differences and the intolerance that exist within it or continue to work on integration?
Now imagine a child whose father is white, mother is black, paternal grandparents are Christians and Maternal grandparents are Muslims. Father does not have particular affiliation to any religion and secretly can be said to be atheist. Paternal grandfather has a history of being a staunch member of a racist movement but is now getting on in age. Maternal grandmother is of Asian and African parentage and her mother, that is the child's great grandmother was isolated and all ties was cut off by her family since she was nineteen when she started dating and eventually married a black man. Both grandparents, parents and the child now lives in UK, a society where people have freedom to express themselves as individuals.
You say that is not possible? ...It is occurring
As a father what values will you give your child?

Wow Koka, a lot of questions and information there! In light of what you've written and in answer to your last question, I unashamedly raise my kids to respect and honour everyone, no matter what their race, colour or religion/beliefs.

However, I still encourage them (not force them) to believe what I do because, like everyone I guess, the reason I believe what I believe, is because I believe its right! (wow, I hope that makes sense!!)

Raising my kids to have respect for people is a big deal for me. Having lived in the USA for nearly 3 years, I have seen a huge difference in how the American kids treat each other and adults (generally with respect) and how kids here in Britain do (generally without respect). Different people with value and prioritise different things to teach their kids.

There's a start. Anyone else?
