is a selection of open-ended responses that relate to the question:
'How favourable or unfavourable
do you feel about people from minority ethnic communities?'
They [community relations] will never
change, Protestants & Catholics will never get on. Ethnic minorities,
however, are a positive asset to our country.
I've answered quite indifferently in
these questions, because I feel that judging somebody has nothing
to do with race or religion but quality of personality. You get racists
in all races so I don't want to give generalisations.
Most people need to accept those from
different countries, rather than threatening them or beating them.
Northern Ireland is a mix of religions
and colours. Where I live there are a small number of Catholics and
just outside my area there is a large Catholic estate. Riots break
[out] every Twelfth of July. Chinese people get their windows pelted
with eggs and bricks .I believe that this will never change.
Northern Ireland is full of people who
can't accept other peoples race of religion.
People still prefer to know which religion
someone is so that they will know how to act around that person. Our
society needs to be a lot more used to multi-religious and multi-ethnic
Religious and racial intolerance is only
related to a minority in N. Ireland, but we all get tarred by the
There has also been a lot of racial hatred
in N[orthern] I[reland] as well - I do not agree with this.
There is too much division between Catholics
and Protestants, but also between ethnic minorities e.g. In our society
of small-minded fools, you cannot be different than the mainstream
way of life, or else you get hassle.
