Racists are a strange bunch. I am sure there are very well to do racists but these tend not to be the ones who are out and proud racists. The racist we see on TV are ignorant, incoherent, knuckle dragging thugs fixated on telling everyone that they are not actually racist and reminding everyone who will listen that they will not tolerate any racists within their organisation and then rolling out the token black racist to show us all that they can not be racist if they have a black racist in their organisation.
The EDL which let's be honest are nothing more than a bunch of skin headed football hooligans and pub racists that evolved to have a show of hands to elect someone to make a Facebook page are the current go to racists. Every now and then a gibbering cliché turns up on Newsnight and Paxo sits back and lets him sprout his bollocks. Paxo realises that you can't argue with a racist because the people watching at home are either racist or not racist and this acts as a social barometer for the folk sat at home. If you agree with the man and think he's talking a lot of sense then you are a racist. If you don't agree with a word he is saying then you are not a racist. If you are watching it laughing your head off or enraged that the BBC has given this man a platform then you are probably not a racist.
Sat on the train the other day I heard a man moan about the price of a cup of tea - 'Bloody immigrants pushing the prices up that's what it is'. Sums it all up doesn't it.
