Is the BNP racist? (British National Party)

Which immediately brings to mind 'is the Pope a Catholic?' and 'does a bear...' and so on.

I'm sticking this up to point people to this site, which gives a reasoned answer to the question 'is the BNP racist?'. I'd recommend all those wanting to squeeze the BNP do the same on their site.
(h/t Matt Wardman)

For what it's worth, I think there is only one race - human. I also think that the BNP flourishes in part because a healthy and generous sense of English identity is suppressed. What is thirsty will drink of stagnant water if fresh supplies are denied. We need our roots:

And we learn to be ashamed before we walk
Of the way we look, and the way we talk
Without our stories or our songs
How will we know where we come from?
I've lost St. George in the Union Jack
It's my flag too and I want it back

Seed, bud, flower, fruit
Never gonna grow without their roots
Branch, stem, shoot
We need roots

Haul away boys, let them go
Out in the wind and the rain and snow
We've lost more than we'll ever know
'Round the rocky shores of England
We need roots...
