Pretty much typical.

During recent history - i.e. the last 100 years, there have been many evil regimes that have committed many terrible atrocities. For me I am a collector, I am certainly not a racist, fascist or a nationalist. Due to my travelling I have very good friends whom are Jewish, Moslem, Catholic, Protestant, Gay and Straight. There are good and bad in all cultures and peoples, we need an open mind and the best form of education is to travel.

“Our true nationality is mankind.” - HG Wells.

Yes I am a collector but living proof that not all TR collectors are out and out racist and bigots.

Just my honest comment. :thumbsup:

X2 Dave exactly what I thought you would say which applies to all of us collectors but unfortunately this opinion is what we are up against. They don't wish to listen or try to understand just pass judgment equally to all. Which is rather hypocritical when you think about it.

Hi Mark,

I'm with Dave on this one:

I have always believed that it is not really possible to be racist if you have done any traveling, people around the world may seem to have slight variations in physical appearance due to location and climate but there is only one race- the human race. Pretty simple really.

Cheers,
Michael

Typical Dail Mail.. (-|

I suppose the Imperial War Museum is rascist?

The brave soldiers who brought stuff back from the different wars they fought in?..

Example:

The IWM buys the Graf Spee eagle.. how many new visitors would that bring in?

The tank museum holds many a open day with Tiger 131, tens of thousands turn up with their families, and have a great day out.

Without the Tiger?.. :-?
