Very sinister I feel. This coming from a country who has a history like yours. I can maybe take it from some tolerant utopia but coming from you ill take it with a pinch of salt.

If anything our country is to tolerant. We allow people to openly say they want to kill all westerners and let them off scot free.

nobody considers Russia a first world nation, they are second world, anyway i got my data from a unbias website.

That was one incident and only one or two more that have happened in the past 10 years.

I really can't believe that people are offering their wisdom and insight on a country that they evidently know absolutely nothing about, let alone visited. Can people please substantiate their claims that white youths in Britain spontaneously attack black people for no apparent reason? And please don't cite one solitary incident reported in the Daily Mail or the Sun, as that is not substance, that is cherry-picking to prove a misguided point. I'd also like to see the evidence that supports the notion that England is 'more racist' than Texas.

I await with trepidation.

Oh, and a P.S - that CNN 'opinion' article is, of course, a load of hogwash. There was no anti-Muslim backlash against Muslims during the 7 July Bombings in 2005, so it is rather funny that he decides to pick out this incident in what appears to be a self-reassurance article - clearly this man is very insecure about the United States and needs to proclaim that it is better than country x, y and z. I think this incident is slightly different to the 7 July bombings - he was butchered in broad daylight for a start, and one of the killers, with blood-covered hands and a bloodied meat cleaver, then went on camera and tried to justify his actions, which was then broadcast on television for all to see. This doesn't excuse the thuggish nature of the English Defence League and their neanderthal supporters, but it does tell you that this is different to your typical terrorist attack, and as the comments on that article suggest, England is a smaller country, and Muslims make up a larger proportion of our population, so the opportunity for anti-Muslim attacks is a lot greater than it is in the US.

Regardless, using this incident in isolation to justify such nonsense is absolutely pathetic on the part of that Dean Obeidallah, and I am saddened that anyone would post that drivel on here to try and make a point. I thought we knew better than that.

Saying England is more racist than Texas isnt saying much.
Texas is NOT that racist, they have the most diverse city in the nation.

I don't care how 'racist' Texas is - I still want to hear his thoughts. I want him to explain, in full detail, why he thinks England is 'more racist' than Texas. I don't want him to base his opinions on media reporting, either, as you cannot gauge how the general populous act or think via the media, you actually need to experience the people by visiting that country. Sadly, many people on here seem more content on basing opinions on misconceptions rather than actual experience.

They don't hate you so much - they hate the Western world. They target America because a) it is usually the main instigator regarding Western involvement in foreign countries, such as Iraq and Afghanistan and b) it's larger and more well-known.

Teenage girl beaten in nasty racist attack in Plymouth street | This is Plymouth
A YOUNG female Chinese student was beaten to the verge of unconsciousness in what police have described as a "blatant and nasty racist attack" in Plymouth city centre.
The 19-year-old victim told The Herald how she was set upon by a racist thug nearly twice her age in the shocking and vicious early hours assault.

Anti-English rhetoric is at risk of “creeping” into Scottish society after police reported a record number of racist attacks against white Britons, it has been claimed.
(as you see, people hate each other)

Muslims come in a variety of races,so that's actually incorrect.
