Two experiences recently shook me a little. First was several weeks ago when a bloke I'd known for a couple of years (geeky type, codes a bit, games etc) entered into a discussion with a Zimbabwean couple that turned into a racial tirade with him proclaiming that there should be a divide between whites and blacks. He also drew attention to a website that even The name was so offensive I won't link to it or repeat it. After telling a mutual friend what had happened, the mutual friend showed me links to the guys forum sig elsewhere which proclaimed 'multiculturalism is BS'. Later unfriended the guy and let him know exactly what I thought of him. Today however I was chatting on the phone to my own mother who after talking about the Brevik case said she thought multiculturalism had failed in the UK. Her reasons appeared to be based on fear of terrorism. How are things in other parts of the world? Where I live is peaceful and is very little racial tension, even when I lived in London people didn't express any fear of multiculturalism.
