Bad analogy. To satisfy that analogy you would have to use the term
"people" or "human beings", "Britishers" or something, a pig is a pig is
not a judgement.

That's bullshit, that's not what racism is, and it goes far deeper than
that. The local pubs had to shut down for lack of business. The new
people don't mix with the Britishers. There's no longer any social cohesion.

No, the people there already respect the culture. Newcomers should meet
the old timers halfway at least, if there is going to be a community.

I am simply noting that it is always Muslims who have this great
difficulty integrating. The reason is either they don't want to, and
polls have shown that many don't, and/or their culture is simply

Why would being uncomfortable make you racist? A racist believes that
other races are inferior. Muslims are not even a race.

I have a problem with having a government dictate how I think, presuming
that Canadians are unwelcoming to other cultures unless ordered by the
government. I'm accepting, but I also demand that Canadian values are
respected by other cultures before they get my respect. They won't get
it because I was ordered by the government, not ever. It's a ridiculous
and naive idea.

Nobody gives a fuck what "Dutch" thinks. Multiculturalism is the law of the land, and Canadians felt
so strongly about it that we entrenched it in our Constitution. You can try to organize a
Constitutional amendment, but I think we both know that is never going to happen. Your next best
option is to leave Canada and go live somewhere where the prevalent culture fosters and supports
bigoted attitudes like yours. You are simply not welcome here. Muslims are.
What you don't grasp is that it doesn't matter if you fetishize
"Multiculturalism" or not, it will ultimately lead to divisions and
problems. There is plenty of anti-Muslim sentiment in Toronto and other
places, and if you're looking for the reasons, I'd list the number one
reason as resentment against imposed "Multiculturalism", reluctance of
Muslims to adapt and modify their strange (to non-Muslims) customs, and
least of all, racism.
