    Depends doesn't it.. if someone is racist behind closed doors and doesn't racially abuse people then they're entitled to dislike people from other races.
    However if someone is being abusive using the P word, W word and N word in a derogatory manner then its an issue.
    As for people swearing, we're all adults on here and swearing is allowed so that's a none issue. Abuse will always happen online no matter where you are.

    I'm assuming we're talking about real life here, and not the chat site. I feel as though everyone should be allowed to express their views. If we silence those minorities who are racist, then how are we supposed to identify these groups and criticise their actions? That's the whole point about freedom of expression, to challenge and change minds.
    I do agree on the point that racism, bullying, sexual harassment or any other forms of abuse, should not be acceptable in any form. Unfortunately, abuse online is very difficult to resolve and take action upon. There are many loopholes online where the perpetrator can freely abuse other and suffer no consequences for those actions. This was one of the downsides of having the guests for example, as little action could be done against them.

    Yeah but disliking and having an opinion about a religion isn't racist? Religion has followers of all races so it can't be racist. Racism is where someone thinks you’re inferior because of your colour, ethnicity, nationality or race.

    When most people talk about racism they usually mean different nationalities, and other races. Its all ridiculous really cos most of us have a mix somewhere even if it is English/Irish/Scot/ or Welsh. I really dont think many people are ' Racist ' if the truth was known.
    We are just people living in a mixed up world.

    Unsurprisingly you forgot the Cornish but racism towards us is encouraged in the UK by Governments and media.

    Maybe the post I answered to wasn't racist cos I know not everyone heard the announcement but If you're insisting on calling a Cornish person English then that is racist, in fact we're Celts. I could even type that in my own Celtic language if I so wished. You can blame the selective English history system for this not being taught.

    And in case you missed it heres the announcement Cornish granted minority status within the UK - Free Chat Rooms

    Can't be helped sometimes, sometimes its accidental but racism towards one side usually leads that side being racist back.
