Are we stopping them from going there? Too be honest are they really interested in this part of the country?

    No, I doubt there is many who would have any issues people with colour exploring the countryside. Those who do they would be against them in any given situation.
    This is it what bothers me...why does everything has to be about 'us & them'..there is too much 'descriptions' going on that separate people. Like when you read newspaper articles about somebody and they mention person who comment something about their age and where they from or what they do for living....when those details don't have any connection to do with what is reported, they should be left out!
    To me sounds like media is on a mission to stir things up and trying to find something to write about.:rolleyes:

    Oh another one...
    There has been on tv about certain ethnic groups in UK don't tend to go to countryside...it is not in their culture to venture that way. So some charities have done work to arrange some trips to see wildlife and farm animals and short walks outdoors so people from city community circles get introduction and experience different kind of life to their own.
    But from my own experience...I don't come across many ramblers and dog walkers in those little further away places that are other ethnic origin than 'whites'...certainly I don't have nothing against anybody as long as they behave, don't damage the nature and take their litter with them when they go back home.

    When I was in hospital after having DS2, my husband took DS1 to his mother and toddler group (I doubt they would give it such a sexist name now). Of course there were no rules against this, and I'm sure no one in the group would have admitted to not being happy about a father turning up, but he felt completey shunned - and he's not one to imagine this stuff.

    Maybe this is how some ethnic minorities feel, if not every day of their lives, but in many situations. Racial bias is often unconscious, and can show itself in very subtle ways, but humans are also very good at picking up subtle body language. I didn't see the programme, but when we don't have direct experience of someone's experience we need to keep an open mind.

    I think it's wise to remember that what we read in the papers and see/hear on TV and radio isn't the truth.

    It was from a black chap, when I see a black man walk into a pub or cafe, restaurant I for one don’t stare at him and his family, so I say again most of them just are not interested, it may change a bit now as covid but it’s just another angle to make the news and that does worry me What’s next?

    Of course nothing wrong with them, they the black groups are just saying it’s a white environment, well I can’t see we are stopping them , they choose not to go but since the floyd death is now whites only , it isn’t it’s just they don’t want to go, everything is all getting taken out of context .
