    Whether I put blah blah or etc etc, I didn't say it wasn't a serious matter, my rant was about hypocrisy in racism. I know racism is a terrible thing and would love to see it irradiated, can't see it happening in my lifetime. We all need to act like children, they don't see colour or creed, we as a people breed racism.
    The pc brigade need to relax a little or maybe they to be balanced, maybe they're the people I'm annoyed at.

    And I wish people would elaborate on a possible disagreement instead of just disliking a thread, how am I meant to know whats possibly upset you, my grammar, my use of the word cheese?

    Cheers Kai

    I dislike most of what you have said and how you have said it, to be honest. I just couldn't be bothered to 'dislike' your posts because too much of what you have written or think is funny/a joke just made me think you are a bit of a <something negative> who's not worth getting into a proper debate with.

    Now you're brushing off people who have made GOOD points as the "PC brigade" (which is another cheap way out, similar to when people brush off claims of racism as 'playing the race card').

    I don't think you have to be a rocket scientist to know what you have posted that has "upset" some people.

    Maybe you don't have a problem with colour, I don't know you; but reading bits of all of your posts in this thread it certainly sounds like you probably do a bit deep down.

    Your welcome to your opinion, the problem is that your never truly going to know somebody from a forum, the rant thread is on here and I used it for what I believe a genuine reason, it wasn't to upset anybody and for anyone that is upset I apologise.

    As for the PC brigade, is wasn't aimed at anyone who has replied, it's the people who decide what we can and can't say, whether it's racist or not, if they deem it offensive they want to stop using them, whiter than white, black Mark and accident black spot are a few examples.

    As for your last comment, if it makes you feel better thinking that then I can live with that, maybe you know me better than I know myself.

    You're right, I don't know you, I said that. But from reading your posts on a topic that is always going to be a sensitive one, the way you put across your points were always going to rub some people up the wrong way.
    Maybe if spoken it wouldn't have, but in plain text things can sound different to how they are intended.

    My bad, I thought you were talking about posters in this thread.
    I agree with what you say about it being silly not being able to use those examples of terms you gave, BUT I do think some of what the "PC brigade" deem to be offensive is correct and shouldn't be used.
    For example, I've heard tooooo many people try to justify the use of the word "paki" when referring to someone who is Asian. Use of this word can never be "OK" for so many reasons. The main reasons being that in the 80s/90s it was majorly used in a negative way, and even people who weren't around in the 80s/90s know this.
    So I think the people who still use the term and think it is ok should show a little common sense and take this into account, and see that it really isn't ok.
    That's just one example of many where I think its good for people to be told what they can and can't ("should and shouldn't" is probably a better way of saying it) say.

    Mate, its nothing to do with making me feel better because, with respect, you are nothing to me. Its was just my opinion on you, based on what you had written.

    Although, to be fair, you're later posts are easier on the eye. Probably why they haven't been 'disliked'.

    I grew up in the US, (I moved to the UK when I was 12) and my best friends were black, in fact I was the minority white kid. I used to go home with my best mate and wait with his family until my parents picked me up later in the day as they both worked.
    My friends family were quite old and they used to tell stories of the old days, and of their families struggles. This is maybe why I liked reading John Steinbeck novels while I grew up.
    My friends father told me how his father used to be made fun of. White guys used to offer him a nickel or a quarter and he would always take the nickel, the white guys would ridicule him saying he was dumb and didn't know the difference. But he knew the day he took the quarter the game would stop. When he passed away they found sacks of nickels up in the roof space, nearly enough to pay for my friends father to go to college.

    When I was about 10 I heard a story about how a black guy was attacked because of his colour, a nearby store owner came out to help him, he was white. Later that day he was also attacked, put into a trunk and thrown into the river.

    Couldn't understand it then as a kid and still cant understand it now, and I'm 35 years older.

    you all missed the point, we are all conditioned to hate each other, regardless of colour, thats what the TV is designed to do to you all, hence I don't watch the Tv or have a Licence for one too!

    Tv = Tell-Lies-Vision
    BBC = British Brain Washing Co-Operation

    Also if you dont like what MOBO stands for then don't watch it, simple as really,

    And Jews, they are not the ones to be blamed, I used to blame them until i learnt to see past what was being portrayed by the false Jews who are hidding behind the Jewish folk, come on dig a bit deeper, google up "False Jews"

    Its also the times we live in. A good friend of ours came out and told us he had no time for black people because they were lazy sods with no intention of working, only taking benefit payments and complaining about how they are treated. Well its his opinion and he is perfectly entitled to it but to be honest that sums up a lot of races living in and around the uk doesnt it ?

    Hummmmm........

    It's not colour that's the problem.

    It's quantity...!!

    A small, well balanced number of varying 'ethnicities' would indeed be welcome and diverse, and 'enriching'.... But when one community displaces another it is no longer 'enrichment', but 'ultimately' genocide.!

    Take a look at this;

    So what's the solution? Bearing in mind that a large chunk (the majority?) of this quantity were actually born here. As were their parents in a lot of cases.

    Mate, I want to be an Estate Agent, or a door to door insurance salesman, or even a tax inspector, being a Banker is too embarrassing these days.

    Racism exists, no-one can doubt that, but it is a good thing to be able to talk about it, without people just shutting down the conversation by accusing you of being racist. Talking about racism and being racist are two different things, and yet anyone tries to raise a public debate about it is cussed and then fears raising the issue again.

    If you can't talk about it, then it will fester. There are very few people in this country who can put their hand on their heart and say they have never had racist thoughts.

    Difficult isn't it...?

    But lets start with that large chunk (not as big as you might think) that were born here.... On the whole not a problem.

    BUt lets deport all the (up to 2 Million) Illegal immigrants and bogus asylum seekers,,, a good start that no sane person can argue against..?? After all we're talking illegal here..!

    Then there's all those, (this is the big chunk) who have taken advantage of Liebours 'open door' immigration policy since 1997..... They need to be 'reassessed'. Can't blame the individuals for coming, blame the Government,,, but time for them to go.......

    How about criminal immigrants....??

    How about breaking up the ghettos...??

    Can't argue with that.

    Not so sure about this one. They'd have been here for up to 14 years, possibily having married people who are originally from another country, having had "English" children who are up to 14 years old and possibily mixed race. Where would they go? And even if both parents are immigrants from the same country.... should the kids have to go?

    Possibly. But dependant on crime. Three strikes and you're out maybe?

    Do we really have ghettos?? But if yes, then yes, break them up.

    I also don't agree that the ones here after a warm welcome should go, even reassessed, they have done nothing wrong, maybe look to see if they've tried to work, health and other circumstances permitting.
    All I can see is the horse has already bolted, should of been on this along time ago.

    why are you associating 'dole scrounging parasites' with people of other ethnic origins?
    it applies to anyone, anyone who is scrounging scum. not just blacks, europeans, asians etc. you cant just say that the majority of other nationalities are like that. that IS racist.

    If you have a look again at what I wrote..... It should come across as meaning our own home grown scum, (i.e. home grown, dole scrounging parasites) we have to put up and deal with. But we should not, as I said, have to put up with 'the scum of the world'....

    Hope that clarifies. :)
