Racism In Scotland  
Here is a series of questions that I put to the members of this community.

As a Scot, have you ever felt afraid to reveal that you are Scottish while you are outside of Scotland (this includes other areas of the UK)?

Have you ever experienced "Anti-Scottish" racism?

As a Scot, have you ever taken part in "Anti-English" racism?

Do you believe that there is a problem with racism in Scotland?

Non-Scots, how do you perceive Scots living/visiting your country?

Have any non-Scots ever experienced racism while visiting the country?

Did you have an idea of what a Scottish person was like before visiting and found it to be completely different in real life?

Non-scot. Don't have a perception of Scots living in or visiting my country.

Found that Scottish people vary as much as any.

Found them to be interestingly lacking initiative to fight small injustices. This is the fault of overbearing systems and attitudes though.

Do you feel that this is the overbearing systems of Scotland, or of the whole UK?

I do find that Scots are a lot more cynical about "fighting the system" as such. For me, it's more of a "been there, done it, didn't make a difference" that leaves me uninterested in trying to make changes, although I am more inclined to feel passionate about smaller matters than larger, what might be classed as "more important" ones. Just don't ask me to take part in a protest!

Probably whole UK.

You're right about making a difference though. :)
