    It's no better here. Especially if you read what Polish people think about race issue in America. Imagine a stereotypical polish cop but worse but then again we elected our own Trumps but they are not loosing popularity.

    trump approval's one thing and i'm not saying it's not a problem but the acutal percentage of people who belong to the fringe hate groups is very small versus the disproportionate amount of attention they crave and unfortunately receive.

    In which way?
    I'm certainly not part of the silent acquiescent group.
    I've been vocal on here, on facebook, on twitter and in real world.
    I coped a bit of abuse over Thursday to Saturday as the wall of my breweries booth at Beervana was highly political and anti trump.
    Not sad at all that I reduced an american tourist to tears made several more have fits of rage and also had security throw a ranty right wing south african out of the beer festival.
    The wall to the left I should have taken a pic of as well but didn't had sprayed on it "Never again" & "no more fascists"
    And a pic of Trump with a red blot from a paintball gun between the eyes.

    Fringe hate groups are one thing but fucking assholes who can go eat a bunch of dicks are another.
    According to my latest calculations were talking about a group of approximately 69.5%.

    Not sure if this is the appropriate thread.

    Although the British did get rid of it rather earlier. It was banished in the UK in the 18th century and throughout the Empire in the early 19th century.

    There's a fascinating book that opines that the US independence was not about taxation without representation, but about slavery:

    https://www.amazon.com/Slave-Nation-.../dp/1402206976

    Written by two distinguished lawyers, it tells the story of how an American colonist came to England with his personal "manservant", picturesquely called Somerset. Somerset saw that his fellow coloureds in England were free, so why couldn't he be? So he took it to court and won. This sent a shock of horror through the Virginian gentlefolk whose wealth was largely measured in slaves, and they saw the possibility that this court decision might well be enforced in the colonies - and this they couldn't tolerate.
