National pride and competitiveness helps us to associate / identify with our own country, heritage & culture, BUT .... do you have to sometimes bite your lip (at least for the sake of tact & diplomacy) when your are in much more international company ?

No. I find I have to bite my tongue much more often, here at home, when engaged in conversation with "born/bred" Americans. Conversations with other nationalities may spark intense dialogue, but never to the point where I had to curb what I wanted to say.

Of course .... It was just some do-gooder that introduced "EQUAL OPPORTUNITY" & "ANTI-DISCRIMINATION" laws into western countries

I have learned there are good souls and bad souls of every race/color/creed/religion?nationality. But I would never lump one group together and call them "anything". Every individual is different (even twins;)) But I will say this, when I recently traveled to the far Southern US...I was shocked that segregation still exsists there....and to what degree! I am ashamed for my country...

I love the company of bigots, especially those with xenophobic behaviour. They are like a breath of fresh air in an environment where there appears a need to act with decorum. Doubtless, some of the views are distasteful and groundless but looking beyond that, there's something admirable when someone is able to say it like it is and not be afraid of the repercussions.

I will always say it like it is, but when a person is being an ass, what does that have to do with their skin color? It is a personality flaw not a genetic one...

I do hope you keep you own words in mind if (and when) you find yourself on the receiving end of someone else's bigotry. It will be interesting to hear how enjoyable you find their company.

"How much of a bigot are you?" Is it as a trick question?
