Blimey.
A lot has happened here since last I looked. Stowjon, I'm pleased to know you are not a racist.
If you read my post you'll see that I didn't out and out say you were, but I certainly read your second sentence in the way everyone else seems to have read it. I'm glad that's not what you meant.

You started a thread entitled 'Racist or not?' I understood that you were specifically inviting opinions on whether the actions of those landlords and estate agents were racist (they were) and whether your own post was racist (it seemed to be.)

I thought I was responding to your question. 'Is this racist?'
The questions of whether someone has a right to be racist in their own home, and by extension whether a privately owned house offered for rent to the general public should be considered 'their own home' in that context, are separate. I addressed those too.

Of course it is upsetting to be called a racist when you're not. But if you say something apparently racist, and seem to define someone else's racism as acceptable. Then ask the question 'racist or not?' You are likely to be upset by the response.

Apologies if I misunderstood.

You have to laugh at white Brits.

They are the only people on earth who for whatever reason, are obsessed with race. They usually throw insults around like 'you're racist' and all the white people get on their hands and knees to prove they aren't! It is like, such an amazingly big deal to them.

I have traveled all over the world and they are the only ones on the planet obsessed with all this.

Bizarre people, weird and bizarre.

I can think of several continents and at least two hemispheres you obviously haven't traveled widely in.

My ultimate point is that people should not be judged upon race. Whether someone does is up to them. However, it is government policy in the UK to judge someone on their race. The idea of positive discrimination (which clearly discriminates against some people due to their race) is racist. The idea of racism to make things less racists is ludicrous!

It's racist to instruct an estate agent to not rent out your house to black people. It's wrong for the estate agent to agree. I don't see how this point was ever up for question.
