"Monique thinks your Dumb"If he'd plagiarised a certain drink-drive ad that's currently on TV and told her "it's like your tits are in my hands", would he now be called sexist?
Living in PNG I am faced sometimes with what I call reverse racialism, but guess what the important thing is to recognise differences and learn to get on with it.
Sir Peter has most likely in this PC world overstepped the mark but at the end of the day actions speak louder than words. What has he achieved and what has the young lady achieved?
He is a rough diamond what you see is what you get, but I don't think he is racist and most in his era did not grow up on a racist society, Jack was as good as his master.
Obviously not a lot of football to discuss at the moment as this is getting flogged to death. A storm in a teacup
Racism is an unusual thing.
I have a blue collar job and am often left out of banter at work because I won't partake in any of the racist jokes.
My flat mate who's part Maori recently described me to someone as the least racist person he's ever met.
Yet when my flatmates bike was stolen from our house recently I instantly assumed it was our rough acting Maori neighbours. Not the other family's or the Asian uni students across the road.
My grandparents will often make the odd "old fashioned" comment which will stick out to me.
They also owned an engineering firm in which they had no issues hiring anyone who was willing to work.
Some times it's hard to decide what is racism and to what extent it is racist.
I wasn't there during this situation and don't know either at all.
Just felt like pointing out racism and discrimination can be a hard thing to define and everyone will see it differently.
Yeah well if that's the case then who isn't, who hasn't remarked at the asian driver or indian shop owner.Let me help you. Racism is any time you act with the mindset that someone is inferior, less than, repulsive or generally less desirable than you because of their skin colour and/or ethnicity.
Some comments need to have more context to be understood correctly. While others are inexcusable no matter what context.
Imo Butch is part of the group that doesn't know he's racist.
Good point which is why I laughed at Mark Hunt commenting on this issue. He was swearing and making racist comments about Brock Lesnar a few months ago. Yes he was angry but was also surprised he was getting called out for racist comments due to Brock being white. Sure it goes the other way more but if you don't want people commenting on your skin colour you shouldn't be doing it yourself. I've met Mark and he seems like a cool guy, he is also a big fan favourite in the MMA world but he would have lost a lot of fans who were behind him on the steroids thing with a few heated comments.Can't stand the term "reverse racism" racism is racism no matter which race you are or which race is doing it
I really like your post, I still take the piss as I'm sure do many others who are and aren't white. If you can't laugh at yourself when people take the piss and give as good as you get then how in the hell can you be relied on as a stand up person if your always having a sulk. Life throws shit at us all, do we dig in or cry for hugs.but for certain generation of white guys they would insult each other all time over the most minor of personal defects as a way to bond and form friendships because for alot of white guys back then only way they would be friends with you, is if they felt like they had one over you. Again it's not racist, it's just really stupid. How do we know that isn't what he's doing ? That in this instance he was just being white ?
