I'm in a TA unit, here in Northampton I was joined to the Gren Guards back in 1998..and like I said I did not see or hear of any hassle like you think.. you might get
If you do, report it! is my best option, we have a couple of asain lads in the TA unit.. They do pretty well and get along with everyone as does everyone else
Racism, Sexism, whatever, there is no place for it in the Army. However remember there is a fine line between abuse and fun, if and when you find you cant laugh at a certain remark, joke, slagging anymore then before rushing off and complaining think about how it was delivered and recieved. In my time in the Army I have not really seen/witnessed any racism, I have however seen squaddies being squaddies which could in many situations be taken totally wrong by onlookers. Some of my very best friends are black and Asian. If the day ever came I cant give them some shi!t due to our different features,colour,race or creed, and likewise they cant give me some stick for my small white penis amongst many other shortfalls I apparently have then maybe the Army isnt for us.
Be aware the Army can appear a cruel place to civvy`s, but believe me you will meet people you didnt think could exist and friends you really could trust with your life, maybe not your wife, but definatly your life!!
Good Luck, dont be a civvy all your life be brave join the Army and be the best!
Note to self....... Little bit cheesy toward the end Marky!
Yom Mon, I've not witnessed any Racism in the 15 years i've been in, However Ginger people tend to get a lot of Sh*t!
As long as you bring your sense of Humour you'll love army life.
If you join the RMP's you'll be known as a Monkey, this is not ment racially! LOL
