    No manners or am i racist?

    Today while i was buying a few things at a Tesco (in London)
    an African came to the cashier next to me,

    "GIVE ME BENSONS 10"

    Nothing else just that, the woman cashier gave him the cigarettes took the money gave him the change and said thank you, he just walked off without a word!

    Is it just me or is this lack of manners disgusting?
    I know its not only Africans but they seem to be the worst.

    Yeah, that annoyed me as well when I lived in London.
    It's only the young ones, part of their macho culture, a sign of insecurity me thinks.
    I am talking about black Brits, not Africans.

    About the same thing happens in American citys everyday,,

    2 Black young men enter a 7-11 store with their hats on sideways and demand of the cashier
    "Give us all youse money afore I pops a cap in yo ass muthafucka",
    then the walk out of the place with the money and a 6pak of Colt 45 malt liquor and never a thank you.

    What aout while your queueing in 7-11 or Family Mart in Thailand and some Somchai marches in throu the door (**sound of door beep**) then istantly demands "Krong Thip gap fai chek krap" with total disregard to the line of people waiting?

    Same as the "Bensons 10" African if you ask me, same mentality as well probably.

    Sounds like lack of manners, but if the accent is heavy it might also be a language problem. Along the same lines as foreigners who haven't learned to say "khrap" or "kha" after ordering in Thai.

    Not too hard to check, just say 'You know, it would sound much nicer if you added a 'please' in that sentence'. The response will tell.

    I don't think it matters what race you are.

    If you're English, you'll be well mannered. If you're a Johnny Foreigner, you'll be less so.

    Elementary really...

    They're northerners. More like Scots than Englishmen.

    Errrrm....we don't call it soccer. We call it football. You know, the football you use your feet for, not the football where you use your hands.

    I've never had a personal problem with Black Africans, but I've seen them be rude, act stupid to others around me.

    Send them back to the hut and dirt floor where they belong.

    P.S. In Asia, they're useless, and very stupid.

    No.

    Black trash is in the cities, white trash is in the rural areas, but my definition of "trash" is not about income, being poor, or education or lack or employment.

    "Trash" to me, is violent, criminal, anti-social behavior.

    From my now distant experience in the UK I'd stick my neck out saying the blacks routinely own larger chips than whites, that they take great pride lugging these around on their shoulders, are more commonly racist, overtly so, and with impunity, and it should go without saying (at writing time) that there are more UK whites than the aforementioned minority.

    The strangest thing is that the 'English soccer louts' (football hooligans actually) are a dying breed. It's yet another thing the Europeans are excelling in.

    Surely they'll kill themselves off quicker in Pattaya than they would back home? So many balconies, so little time.
