If you're implying what I think you are I would suggest that this site has proven enough times that this country already has an adequate supply of angry racists.

Yes. Yes it has a lot of angry racists. The thing is, you must never confuse racism with people who are not afraid to defend their own country from a foreign aswell as domestic danger.

Secondly, again don't make the mistake that all racism is down to white people.

Firstly, i never proclaimed you were a lefty.

Secondly, i think you need to realise that your kids (depending on how old they are) are going to come across different beliefs throughout society and will be exposed to this at some point

Fair enough. I've moved around a bit and lived in different cultures and found there are usually far more things that bring us together than divide us (religion being the worst divider in my opinion.) You don't appear to have a very dissimilar view to your dad's take on life....so that leaves me wondering whether you have taken your own advice here and considered "different beliefs throughout society."

I can't work out if you're asking a real question, being condecending or simply trying to get a rise out of me?

Let's say it's a real question..

I have come across many different beliefs in our society. I feel there is racism on both sides, not just all one way (as many leftys sould like to think) and it's not just in grays aswell.

Oh and btw i'm than capable of making my own decisions thanks :)
