Whenever Any Form of Government Becomes Destructive To These Ends,
It Is The Right of the People to Alter Or To Abolish It,
And To Institute New Government

Don't travel to Britain

Sky News:
The advice in Air China's inflight magazine came to light after Beijing-based journalist Haze Fan posted a picture of the article on Twitter.
Social media users were quick to pick up on the article, which has been described as "ignorant" and "blatantly racist".
What was this horrible advice?
"London is generally a safe place to travel, however precautions are needed when entering areas mainly populated by Indians, Pakistanis and black people. We advise tourists not to go out alone at night, and females always to be accompanied by another person when travelling."
Where did the Chinese get these weird ideas?
Ahmed Mohammed Ibrahim, 17, was repeatedly hit across the head with a samurai sword, baseball bat, machete and metal pole after being chased in Sefton Park, Liverpool, in March this year [2008].
Totally racist.
Likely Islamophobic.
The advice is quite sensible. Most tourists in the world aren't rushing to Pakistan and Africa every year. Soon, they'll simply refuse to visit Londonistan as well.
