Pretty sure that in the near future veganism will be compulsory or at least the only dietary option available?.. Just saying..
Ps: I'm not a vegan in any way. But I can't see how we can sustain the level of animal agriculture while the population is growing at the rate it is, with the limited resources we have.
Almost 50% of people surveyed were negative towards Muslims. The survey also revealed that almost 30% of people are negative towards Asians. It is nothing more than fear that makes people feel negative about other cultures.
As has been discussed discrimination and intolerance breeds isolation, hatred and social divide, which breeds intolerance. It's a vicious cycle.
And intolerance and racial hatred certainly does exists, on both sides, even if your suburb does not reflect that.

And whether people are justified or not in being scared does not change the fact they ARE scared. Simply just saying "oh it's because they come from white neighbourhoods and are ignorant" does not help matters at all. It means people are not willing to discuss their concerns for fear of looking or being accused of being ignorant and/or racist and further compounds the secrecy and suspicion people hold and doesn't address the issue.

What is it about multiculturalism that you don't think can work or has worked?
Do you live in a multicultural area?
How multicultural is your circle of friends and your children's (if they're old enough) circle of friends?
The other thing is when someone from a minority group commits a crime we judge all of them but we don't do the same for white people.
The reason so many people think negatively about Muslims comes down to the media plain and simple.
