    Can you back it up or not?
    Go to wiki

    I couldn't find any more about race there than I could find stuff about fighting over carrion in your altruism links

Especially since it would also entail transfers for the professors among others.

    On the top of my head I wo ...[text shortened]... more Ivy League universities to offer and therefore 'must' be further advanced in many subjects.
    Pretty much immediately. Postdocs are usually on short-term contracts of one to three years, so they are continuously pouring into (and leaving) the U.S. and U.K. But I haven't yet seen any hard data so it's difficult to judge quantitatively what the impact of Trump and Brexit respectively has been and will be.

    In terms of the quality of research, there isn't much difference between Ivy League, Oxbridge, and, say, Copenhagen or Aarhus universities.

    Actually we both made statements, so we could both choose to back them up or not.

    That's the other half of twitheads statement blown out of the water.
    You haven't actually provided any evidence whatsoever, so no, it hasn't been 'blown out of the water'.

    Here is evidence for my claim:

    What evidence do you have of a muslim ban and that 'the world' views the UK as racist.

    Haha, you went to google and typed in racist and brexit then posted some links without reading them, idjit.

    Just to be clear, if another 4% voted to stay in the EU 'the world' would no longer see the UK as racist?

    BTW not one of your links proves Brexit is racist, and that's a fact, you should try them sometime.

    I didn't claim there was "stuff about fighting over carrion in [my] altruism links."

    You did claim Brexit has nothing to do with racism. Will you back up this claim or not?

    You didn't have much to say at all, which was not like you but; in the OP I quoted your idiotic carrion statement.

    Your response: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altruism

    Further in the thread

    Wajoma ....And what is more, if it's not common, why aren't we oh so dramatically "fighting over a piece of carrion".

    Your response: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altruism

    Brexit is the UK leaving the EU, I can't prove there is racism or a lack of racism because I can't prove something that isn't there. There's no mention of race anywhere in it. The UK is shrugging off the parasitical buratcracy known as the EU, no mention of race.

    Keeping in mind that I put it in quotes.

    and that 'the world' views the UK as racist.
    Evidence provided already.

    Haha, you went to google and typed in racist and brexit then posted some links without reading them, idjit.
    Haha, you just ran your mouth without thinking first, idjit.

    BTW not one of your links proves Brexit is racist,
    Not one of my links was intended to prove that Brexit is racist. Do try to keep up.

    I note that you still have not provided any evidence whatsoever for your claims.

    I posted the link to the Wikipedia because from the discussion about altruism it became apparent to me that you don't know what altruism means. Hence, I think it would be beneficial to look it up and learn about it. Then you can recognize altruistic behaviour in humans as well.

    The comment about "carrion" was meant to illustrate that humans, as a social species, developed cooperative behaviour with complex social structures, unlike, for instance, certain predatory, solitary species that might indeed fight over pieces of carrion. Once you take a bit of time to learn about altruism in nature, and among humans in particular, you might begin to understand how and why it evolved.
