Hahah, my dog wouldn’t dare do this to the cats. Licking them in the face is fine, batting them with his paws - no. But then, he’s a big dog and could hurt them accidentally, so it’s best he’s not allowed to do it at all XD
As a Englishman I’d just like to say that this post and its content is a disgusting misrepresentation of the English - to my eternal shame we are often far more prejudiced, impolite, arrogant and racist than that.
The audacity! England colonizes the whole world and then wants to act brand new now that people are coming to England since England ruined their homeland and that they dare to bring their culture with them and keep it through generations. The entitlement and ignorance of white English people is incredible.
Western race relations in three images
but then they expect to have the right to wear our clothes (which is usually cheapened, degraded and insulting) and play with aspects of our cultures, use important religious symbols along centuries and centuries of history without letting us enjoy OUR own past
THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN ENGLAND NOW DID NOT COLONIZE THE WHOLE WORLD. HOLDING ACTIONS THAT THEIR ANCESTORS DID AGAINST THEM IS NOT FAIR, OR IN ANY WAY OK.
This is generalizing English/Western people extremely anyway. Every English person I have ever met has been tolerable and understanding. Taking the extremist view of one person and generalizing an entire population is how you get to the points above. That’s like saying that the woman being insulted is a terrorist because she is wearing a headscarf, and does that make any sense? Most western people do not hold grudges against people due to beliefs from 100 years ago. In fact, I find the English person in the photos quite shameful, sooo..
"Every English person I have ever met has been tolerable and understanding"
maybe, just maybe…..
that’s because you’re white. Obviously you have had positive experiences with white british folk if you are white, when are you ever going to experience Islamophobia or racism. You are in no place to comment on the experiences of minorities in Britain
I saw this and I had to say, I found it the single most accurate, the single most natural representation of the British people ever broadcasted.
And I say that as a British person.
I had to reblog this because I can’t stop looking at it… I’m white & I can’t speak for the experience of people who have experienced it directed at them - but yes there are too many people like that woman in the middle panel, the older I get the more I’m aware of - and the expression of the lady in the bottom panel says an awful lot I couldn’t anyway.
Even if there was only one person in the world like this, it’s one person too many. I honestly don’t understand why people have to be so intolerant and hateful to each other. But could we please not brand an entire nation as a bunch of xenophobic twats just because we do have some xenophobic twats here? There are dicks in every country, but they’re not representative of every other person that lives there. It’s just that the dicks are unfortunately very loud, and thus paid more attention to than the decent people in the world.
