Dear America, this is how the western world needs to celebrate racial and cultural diversity.

    Let's try not to make this thread another race flame war.

    Let's be proud of, and celebrate other people's cultures - not just our own.

    This is how most Brits feel about our inter-cultural society, and it makes me feel rather warm and fuzzy.

    OK I've read this twice now and I'm pretty sure it's an article using propaganda to cheer up Londoners who feel depressed and divided. I've been to London and loved it but I don't see anything to emulate here.

    What do you understand by the author's use of the word, "divided"?

    I'm not a big fan of London, sorry.

    I like New york more.

    I've been to London and didn't care much for it. Gloomy, service was bad, food was below average considering its an international megacity. As far as green space goes New York, even Moscow has more park space per person then London.

    I've been to London and thought it was crap. It's not as dynamic and doesn't have the energy that New York has.


    That list is kind of lame.
    It talks about all the different foods they have. lol. As if every major city on planet earth doesn't have varieties of food.

    "There's always something going on" and then they show a pic of a pillow-fight. That's lame and doesn't look fun. Any city has stupid shit like that going on.

    What's up with pic #5 and the caption "there's always something good to eat?" I mean, look at those big pots of "soupy" food and tell me if that's something you'd eat.

    This is my new favourite thread. A race thread where no one's talking about race.

    Not to down London but that list could apply to almost any huge city with large immigrant populations if you change it around a bit.

    And if there's such a celebration of cultures then why are you constantly hearing about Londoners complaining about the middle eastern element? I don't live there so I can't say what it's like.

    I confess to being a bit of an Anglophile. It struck a chord with me. I'd certainly rather spend a year in London than Berlin. Paris, on the other hand, would be hard to turn down. But I'd come back fat.

    Toronto is nothing like NYC or London but I find it cozy and comforting.
