Listen now (12 mins) | A breaking story in Britain involves a Buckingham Palace staffer asking a black person where they're from. Why is this considered "racist"? It's not.
Exactly right Raheem. The activists are always looking for an angle to attack.
Not happy people.
Of course that is not racist, it used to be one of my first questions meeting someone new, whether they were black, white or any colour under the sun, queer or not. Nothing racist in that simple question.
GB is Gone. Your King is Klaus Schwab's BFF and a NWO Principal. Our "King" in the USSA is the Deep State with it's Demented Dementia Doofus Bid'emUp and the lurking Shadow Resident BHObamy.
What could possibly go wrong???
I heard this news on my car radio late this morning and was immediately astonished and appalled. I always ask everyone I meet, whom I do not know, where they are from. It is a way of showing interest and making a connection with them. I ask always all English, Irish, Welsh and others where they are from and often have a friendly discussion about their home town or their area especially if I have ever visited or been near that place. It is not racist, nor unfriendly, nor unpleasant to ask anyone where they are from!!!!! Are TPTB trying to destroy this country and its culture and customs???? TPTB are racist and hateful. I will not stop asking people where they are from as a way of making conversation and getting to know people.
Good to hear your voice again. I've missed the podcasts. I totally agree; this culture of malcontent has become an impediment to finding any joy in life. I was raised on the south side of Memphis during the 60's, with the race riots and curfews and forced desegregation and all the rest. There was a lot of head butting in those days, but we learned to make it work. I spent a lot of time shooting hoops at the park. I played in an all black basketball league. I acquired the name 'Spot', being the only white kid. So when I hear some jackass TV personality comment in hushed tones about someone using the N word I just want to puke. The word is nigger. Yes, I used it. Yes, I was called it. In fact there was one group of guys who nicknamed me 'nigga Mike'. Didn't ask why. Didn't really care. You see, the reason why I can talk about this stuff today is because -WE DIDN'T GET OUR DAMN FEELINGS HURT. But the politicians and the media and social planners have made a business of keeping the fight alive. It's pathetic and it's destructive. The reality is that our cities have become muti-ethnic, and the powers that be are pissed because we don't all hate each other. But I will say this. I've watched this social experiment develop over six decades and my conclusion is that we can all 'exist' together but individual cultures must die off in the process. There are things I like about other cultures, but I miss my own white bread "Leave it to Beaver" "wonder years" "Brady Bunch" culture where people never locked their doors, and everyone went to church on Sunday. That was my culture. And I think it was a pretty good one. Every ethnic group deserves to have a heritage they can be proud of. We shouldn't be forced to give that up in favor of some homogenized conglomerate where neighbors don't even know each other, let alone trust one another. That's not hatred. That's just good sense. Racism is when one culture is excluded or suffers a loss of human rights because of cultural differences. The social planners were wrong. We can all get along just fine together. But lives will never be fulfilling if we forsake our individual heritage and the sense of pride and belonging that is the fruit that such a culture bears. Multiculturalism is a fraud. It demands that only one culture survive. That's racist!
"Why is this considered "racist"? It's not."
It's not, of course.
It never was before prior to the the idiocy of what the progressive left started promoting it.
But to respond as to why it is "considered racist", it is because it is merely another tool of the progressive idiotology used to manipulate traditional mores.
In fact, one could correctly say those lefty progressives are racists for making such a false assertion.
The leftist progressives are the REAL racists! The Democrat Party has actually changed little since today they have antifa and blm as their violent enforcers just as previously they had the KKK at their command in yesteryear. They are the real racists.
Royals never learn. It was Camilla who joked whether Woko Ono's baby would have a ginger Afro. Now the whole institution is racist, even when making small talk with what appears to be Bob Marley's granny.
It depends on the situation. I ask people all the time of their origins when it is clear they are not from the US, as people with distinct accents not-American. I also ask about names when they are unusual as it is a way to learn about the person. But I ask out of interest not judgement. When people ask for origins of someone clearly of this country and they are people of color it can be very hostile implying they don't belong here. Many white supremacists are of this ilk and they are definitely racist.
Soon you will be forced to give your home to the thousands of illegal migrants if you ask where they’re from. At least the three lions are the only World Cuck team bending the knee, that will solve everything!
I was raised in the south, Mississippi and Arkansas to be exact. I now live in Utah, I’ve been here for 40 years… I still have my accent, I visit my family often and I’m so proud of my southern roots. It never fails when I’m out, someone asks where I’m from… I proudly say, “I’m from the south”. 99.9% of the time that someone asks you where you are from because your name is different or you have an accent… it’s because they are curious and interested. I always ask others where they are from, because I’m interested! This woman needs to get over herself; but sadly she like millions of other woke people, they look for anything to be offended by. We are becoming a weak society.
Everything is racist. The Marxists/Communists had to change their tactic from everything being a class war to everything is racist as that didn't start the worldwide revolution they hoped for so now they want to divide people based on their skin color hoping this is the ticket which will finally blow apart the world.
"... we take this indecent extremely seriously..."
Little garden flowers will make an incident out of anything. So tedious.
Raheem, I know this is off the subject, but So Vital to us today! Why is no1 pushing out all you revealed in yojr interview with Jenna Ellis? Do our supposed good people out there, like Bannon and the rest, really not know? What you revealed about the Mc leadership, should be blasted Out There! Especially, that Mc Carthy and crew, not only didn t support$ maga folks like Lake and the rest, but poured Millions, into races For Dems vs Maga...then had audacity to blame Trump and orchestrate coordinated media campaign to push Desantis
In the UK asking "what do you do?" is the shortcut way to find out someone's class, and - if so inclined - to judge whether or not to pay them respect or ignore them as beneath you. If someone does not have white skin "where are you from?" is the shortcut way to demonstrate that their skin tone has been noticed and to establish if they might be from a former British colony, or whatever, another way of slotting people into their rightful social position. "What a lovely accent! Is that [insert guess here]" is another way of putting people down: elite folks don't have accents because they speak the King's English. And there are lots more. Manners and etiquette are a sorting system, so too the shoes and other clothing. The incident referred to was evidence of ingrained racism, regardless of what you think.

No, it isn't racist. We need a discussion on tea, our likes, loves. Chai & Chamomile, Raheem? Darjeeling, Earl Grey, Irish Breakfast!
Thank you Raheem for your sensible analysis and shedding light of normalcy on a situation moving into the bizarre. As a naturalized citizen, I often ask others about their place of origin — out of curiosity and wanting to learn
about them and their heritage.
