There is a saying in the U.K " Racisis in America are direct and in your face while racists in Britain are more subtle and 2 faced". Some blacks in the UK believe that there are more opportunities for black people in the US. They say at least in the U.S you can tell who your enemy is straight away so you know who to turn and not turn to. I believe Malcolm X said he'd rather talk with a man that lets him know where he stands even if he is wrong than talk to a man that comes across as an angel but is really a devil in disguise. Makes me wonder anytime a white Briton is being helpful to me is he/she genuine or is just putting on a happy face while hiding a racist attitude? When I am in America I feel a need to stick to black people. Call me ignorant for making assumptions about white Americans but I am but I am working on it. Have any of you been to the U.K and if so does your attitude change? What are your assumptions of white Britons?
