Admittedly, not recently. Last time was 2008. Has things changed since then?

London and the other big cities tend to be multi racial as that is where the ethnic communities are, get out into the provinces and you see very little ethnicity as the jobs are few and far between and the wages are low.
where I live there is one black single father and he's lived here longer than I have!

UK is not nearly as diverse as the US not is Canada. Itís not even close. At all. This he UK is more integremated in London but the country as a whole is mind boggling my white from an American persepctive. Whites are 60% of the US and 90% of Canada/UK.

13% black is a very very low number for a major city. The average large city in the US is 25% black and 37% white and we have 30 of them. Not to mention the suburbs of our major cities which are about 50% white.

Over half of the near 2 million UK blacks live in London alone, a city that is 13% black and is larger than NYC.
There are more black people in New York City Proper than all of the UK. 47 million black people in the US (most of whom have roots here going back 200+ years )verse 2 million (recently arrived) in the UK. Hard to even do a rational comparison.

That 60% is non-hispanic whites. So people like Cameron Diaz or Penelope Cruz are not included in that statistics.

So what did you find so 'racist' about Australia?

I know Australian and European/UK sensibilities differ way more than the latter generally realise, but I've usually found tourists or recent arrivals from those countries to be far more out of touch or insensitive to ethnic or racial issues, as relevant to Australia, than any local.

As the UK's immigrant population is pretty small compared to the other countries particularly Australia, yet seems to have played such a large part in recent political events, objectively it looks like the UK has much more of an issue with racism / xenophobia.

Perhaps when they first began entering the country, now they're actually valued by the far right, who have had success recruiting them into their ranks.

I'd say Muslims are the group who probably attract the most suspicion at the moment.

It seems that some of the American posters only seem to see racial integration in terms of black and white integration rather than the whole spectrum of races and cultures. To me, the UK feels more integrated but I have only beeen in each country for weeks, not years, so really not my call.

The Canadian census does collect information about visible minorities. At the last count it was 23% with south Asians and Chinese making up 10% alone,. The 23% does not include the native american/ Inuit population, which are not classified as a visible minority.

Most community surveys of the US list it over 70% white, if you include white Hispanics, as white. The lower % often quoted assumes people like Charlie Sheen and Cameron Diaz are not white. The native Amercian/Alaskan population of the USA, are not considered to be white
