    I wonder who will imply that you're a racist first?

    Doesn't help that 2 of the 3 citations are from the Mail Online ;)

    But that aside, it's difficult to argue against this and it's certainly becoming quite a problem.

    In actual news:

    Swedish police foil planned racist thug attacks on migrants.

    Of course, here in the United States we haven't actually taken in any refugees from Syria or Iraq (despite having played a key role in destabilizing those countries). So we'll have to content ourselves with hating on migrants from afar.

    ---> there are religious extremists of all kind around the world.

    In Israel, there are more and more jewish extremists committing nothing but terrorism:

    they write "only a dead palestinian is a good palestinian" on the walls, they burn down mosques, they even destroy and burn down christian churches and threaten christian priests (like just 2 weeks ago in Jerusalem). THey attack/beat/throw stones at women without they hair covered or wearing "too short" clothes - or just for not entering a bus at the back part of the bus.

    discriminating other religions and attacking women is not at all only a muslimic monopol, sadly.

    Welcoming migrants and refugees is a good thing, but giving them some basic training on the local culture and mores and what's acceptable wouldn't hurt matters.

    Western nations sometimes forget that they have a long and extremely dark history of racism and colonialism. The west might harbor a more pluralist culture than it did just a few short decades ago, but there is still plenty of prejudice and xenophobia lurking within each of these "modern" countries. The Syria crisis has shown just how strong those sentiments still are.

    Which is more proof that the people coming into the country are unaware of the new country's stanards, while selfishly believing that the country they left has standards that are globally accepted by default - which is obviously and clearly not the case. Maybe when there's a one world government, but people have been speculating that for decades and even one or two disco songs sung about it too...

    agree 100%

    It is evident that under the refugees there is a certain percentage of criminals and muslimic hardliners. They have to accept our culture and the law.

    But I DO NOT agree to abuse this emerging problems for racist propaganda, as some people do here.

    We have to say "STOP!!" against ALL type of extremists/criminals, not only the muslimic ones...

    And the Eastern ones aren't all utopias and Shambalas we can learn from due to their "advanced enlightenment in treatment of people" either. Let's ignore the suicide factories, forced happiness parades, and other issues -- The sense of sexual entitlement the men have is one face-slappingly big example of prejudice and xenophobia - women are just objects to them, to be dictated at.

    Slavery existed long before whitey stepped foot outside Ireland, too... white slavery existed as much as using other races as slaves. Native Americans came here over the Bering Strait and did pretty much the same thing when they set up home, especially if liberals rewrote history to make them all sound nicer and cleaner than what had happened.

    Women's rights at odds with the Muslim onslaught. Score keeping from the Left: Muslims - 1; Women - 0. Sorry, ladies. You all have to take one for the cause.

    Agree 100%.

    And in fact many European nations have set up programs specifically to help migrants understand the differences between the culture they are used to and the one they find themselves in:

    Unfortunately the sheer volume of migrant refugees, plus a certain amount of reluctance on the part of European governments to stigmatize migrants - has meant that many of them simply haven't received the sort of cultural assimilation they should have.

    yes!

    my todays gift for aaronvan:

    Matthew 7:3-5
    3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

    Cultural racism is a very strong force. Many are not able to overcome its hold on them.

    Meanwhile, in certain places in the good 'ol USofA (obligatory flag wave) they ought to hand out the same notices at family reunions. These threads are clearly posted to imply that the sins of a few condemn all, however we Americans are the awesomist people ever, so exemption for us! USA! USA! USA!

    lol....would it be you for suggesting that some would consider his post racist? A very sneaky way of implying something while leaving yourself wiggle room to say "I didn't say he's a..."?

    LOL. On the original topic, some of us are old enough to remember when groping was a problem in the U.S. The women's movement, consciousness raising, the first Ms. magazine -- it seems like just yesterday. ;)

    Go to any bar or club and the issue is still there, unfortunately the new cultural norm seems to be that when you are at a place like that it's all just part of the "party atmosphere".

    If you talk to women about their day-to-day experiences, you will find that harassment still happens quite often even now. Perhaps it is not as socially acceptable as it once was, but it is still somewhat acceptable in society and is easily hidden.

    As we have found with studies on "terrorism", I have no doubt that the majority of harassment here in the U.S. and in Europe is perpetrated by the native male. I think you are still more likely to be groped, to be harassed as a women by a White, Christian male, than by any other demographic that exists here or in Europe. More scapegoating.

    PC attitudes require suspension of disbelief, as in any badly written fiction.

    And the American male has been sufficiently emasculated and less likely to whistle and catcall than in the bad old days, that role taken over in current times by protected species of immigrants who can do no wrong in the eyes of certain others and are given a pass.

    Belief in the first sentence tends to strongly correlate with the nonsense belief in the second, in my experience.
