    Britain is not exceptionally racist - you have no evidence for this assertion.

    You haven't travelled abroad have you.

    Britian is about the least racist Country in the world.

    Only idiot Socialists think otherwise.

    Try travelling around Africa, Middle East and China, they make UK seem positively Angelic :-)

    You don't know what the word Racist means until you've had a wide experience of it.

    We obviously only white countries that aren’t communist can count. I mean Indians and Pakistanis hate each other but we won’t count that as racist because they are the same colour. Same with Japan/ China/ Korea.

    Russia is extremely racist but as a ex communist country we never mention them either.

    Arabs just see black people as servants at best , slave labour otherwise . They hate Jews even more than the Nazis did.

    Half of Africa is at war most the time but that’s not racist because they are all black (BLM not in Africa).

    The French, Spanish and Belgian empires were as bad as any but it’s no fun hating them because they don’t care and get worked up about it.

    So it’s either Britain or USA.

    Britain had an empire. They exploited their colonies like any other country would have done, if they had been capable. It was the accepted norm in those days.

    The British Empire changed into the Commonwealth. Membership is voluntary. 99% of ex colonies are happy to be in it.

    UK now has laws against racism.

    Have a look at China. They are notoriously racist.

    A lot would depend on how you define "racist". The classic definition is the doctrine that one racial group is superior or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others. Based on that some Asian nations such as Korea, Japan and China are notoriously racist. Many colonial powers tended to be racist.

    "Throughout history" means "from the beginning of  the historical record".  The British have not been "British" from the start; therefore you British cannot be "the most racist throughout History".

    Neither can the Americans (a polyglot nation,  yet one group hates another group), the Germans, Austrians and Swiss (It is still the rule that you cannot become a citizen unless you can prove your bloodlines are from those countries, isn't it?), the Spanish (the Reconquista and the earliest extermination of Native American), the French (Indochina and their feuds with the English and Germans), the Japanese, the Chinese, the ethnic cleansers in the former Yugoslavia, the Italians (Carthage  in Roman days and Ethiopia by the Fascists), African slave traders against other Africans, Arabs and Jews against each other.  Others I don't know or am too tired to add.

    The British are not the first, not the only racists, not the first or only people who are giving up racism, and perhaps not racists for the longest period in human existence. (Do you want to boast that you are?)  You and we Canadians, and probably the Australians and New Zealanders, learn British History  in our schools. Even the Americans learn it (At least up to the American Revolution.) We are bound to it because it is part of own own histories. Most of us have not learned so much of the history of any other nation.  Not of the Dutch East India Company.  Not of the French Empire nor of the Spanish Empire, the Austrian Empire, the Russian Empire or the Ottoman (Turkish) Empire. We think Britain's imperial history is the only history there is. But those empires were just as racist and exploitive and some lasted longer.

    The British are not racist compared to other countries.   The Chinese Japanese Hindoostanis Spanish French Dutch Germans and others are much worse.

    big revelation .. when an empire goes in and subjugates another region they generally wipe out the inhabitants down to a manageable level and put the rest to work .. color has nothing to do with it .. they'll do it to the irish and scotts just like they will with africans and indians .. 'slavery' has been the norm in history NOT the exception ..
