IMPORTING THE SUPERIOR CULTURE:

The black and Asians 'feel stronger ties to Britain than whites' (STEVE DOUGHTY, 4th October 2007, Daily Mail)

Many black or Asian people living in Britain feel stronger ties to the country than whites do, a survey has found.

Nine in ten Bangladeshis and nearly as many of Indian origin feel strongly that they belong to Britain, it said.

So do 87 per cent of Pakistani people and 85 per cent of Black Caribbeans.

But only 84 per cent of whites said the same - meaning that around one in six white people have only a slender attachment to their own country.

The survey also found that whites are more likely than those from ethnic minorities to believe that race prejudice and discrimination is getting worse.

And they are less likely to think they can influence events or decisions in their own neighbourhood.


Britishness is not native to the soil of Britain.

The whites feel guilty for being white and the rest cannot become white fast enough. Kipling understod it, just as he understood so much about race.
