It would be Jingoism rather than racism, I think. As a Brit, I find it interesting to see how we might be considered by others, and not personally insulting (although perhaps my opinion can't be generalized to others)

Oh, I'm a Brit. A Brit who can't hold even a tiny bit of alcohol, who is therefore very aware of just how much a lot of other Brits drink.

Those people need to get a grip. As a Brit who drinks, I can confidently state that British attitudes to alcohol are broken, and that nix's statement is entirely fair.
