If you're half black, do you get a giant willy too? Or is it kind of diluted as your racial purity is diluted?
yeah....casual racism on Social Board. Ban Request?
but it's hard to take seriously from someone like that, I think.
genuinely. it makes a generalisation about a race. a non-derogatory generalisation. and mentions racial purity without giving any value judgement on it. problem?
The stereotype that black people have huge cocks is being invoked here. If it isn't racism it's still stupidity that borders on insulting.
How about a thread on 'smelly Arabs'. Would that not be racism too?
Well done, Einstein: 'smelly' is derogatory.
I don't think having a big willy is anything you'd be upset about. If someone called me 'biggus dickus', I'd be like 'HAHAHHA, Cheers!'. If someone called me 'Smelly' I'd probably cry my eyes out.
I love it. Its like a competition to see who can be the most anti-racist in the forum.
to be derogatory for it to be racist.
I don't know how this applies to willies.
It's simply about prejudice and assumption.
So you're now getting upset about harmless stereotyping?
You're the kind of person that begs for something to complain about to make you look better.
I don't personally consider such stereotyping to be harmless.
Black guys have been beaten up and murdered because they've gone out with or gone after white girls (and I should point out there racist black guys who have similar reactions ot white guys who go with 'sistas'). The sort of stereotype you are trying to perpetuate is pretty much at the root of that sort of behaviour.
I don't think much of it.
However, perhaps you can tell me where I complained? I just disagreed with ex_cynic on technical point, you dribbling moron. :D
don't bother me in the slightest... Nor are they related to black cocks.
nor did I suggest that black cocks is what it's all about.
Prejudice by others against such relationships is generally about perceived emasculation by one race over another (as a smokescreen to personal ego issues).
The whole point of not perpetuating a stereotype is about realising they do have an effect via the culture of language even if you personally do not believe in what they say.
is that wrightylew isn't actual being derogatory about any race.
aren't big cocks quite highly sought after?
but i get your point too
by whom sofia?
and its soPHia :P
but i think it's hiding.
has nothing to do with whether or not it is racist.
not Back, theo.
not bad. He rates the threads in terms of replies.
You talk about me like some notorious serial killer.
"He'll be back before nightfall."
i've been reading Middlesex for the last week or so, i'd never actually heard that word before it was mentioned in there.
it's so good.
i only read on the bus to/from work, but i'm racing through this because i'm enjoying it so much.
I wish he wouldn't spend an entire decade writing one book though.
Its actually a serious question.
Its been on my mind all day. Brown willies.
I can't remember saying anything bad about black people. But yknow. I'm pretty much a massive nazi so it doesn't matter either way.
is that everyone will accept me."
Hours of egg slinging fun. Well, minutes.
where they get trapped in the panic room and Peter recounts his family history.
She doesn't have a big willy. In fact she doesn't have a willy what so ever.
But I've never seen their willies.
When in bed, you'll know...
What do we think about white people?
yeah - all of them, I mean, in general...lets assign cartoon carry-on values for a clumsily-defined, billion-strong sector of humanity.
ooh and maybe use terms like
while we're at it. I mean that won't make us out to be cunts.
If someone is totally one race, does that not make them pure, so to speak? Like if your entire heritage was African? You're a pure black person?
But I thought it was a fact that black people had massive willies?
have an ancestor of a different race.
using the term 'pure' to describe a race though... is.... a bit....... no.
So there are actual genitalia size genes?
then sell them to parents who want their unborn child to be a porn star.
Because for people like me who have Mircropenises (put it into wikipedia), its not a laughing matter.
But they're crying because I used the word 'pure'?
I bet you anything there are some black people whose ancestors have all been black. But you aren't allowed to say 'pure'? Am I allowed to say 'totally black'?
What's the phrase you're permitted to use?
The thing is, I wasn't being nasty when I was on about 'pure' black people, and that's what matters, right?
being sensitive to the connotations of 'pure' in matters of race is what matters.
I get you, and I understand that the word 'pure' was used by Uncle Adolf, but it is a pretty weak thing to get appalled at isnit?
And that's the only issue here. Anyone who says they don't look at a black man and think 'I bet he has a giant winkie' is a liar. Especially blonde haired-girls.
I became very good freinds with an ex and became a confidant, and she unashamedly persued that which you are talking about.
no value judgements were attached. if people's minds work in a way that makes them unable to contextualise properly and thus sets off the Hitler Alarm, then it's probably them who have the problem.
We're recruiting for new members. Anyone wanna join DAB?
Sutton & Shearer? You must be having a tough time promoting that in 2007.
short and stumpy.
On a mildly related note, Souness wants to take over Saints and bring Shearer in as manager*. They can all fuck off, I say.
who called it his dingle dangle.
He wasn't mixed race though.
You clearly don't.
Starting pretty much any question with:
"Do black people..." isn't really cricket - I may have sounded reactionary with the first post but:
As a white, regular male, in many accounts, you and I don't get lumped into many generalisations.
"Do people from Lancashire do this / that"...
"Do half-icelanders / 5'9" men do this / that"
The colour of someone's skin trips off hundreds of subconscious triggers in the person trying to size them up (NOPUN)...Prejudice is so rife and ingrained
I just think if you really put yourself in the place of someone of mixed race who deals with this to some extent every day of their lives, you wouldn't make posts like that, or at least use more considered language.
i frequenly get called a 'white piece of shit' by various asian youths on my street. so I'd argue everyone is a bastard.
I get shit from 'Asian' people all the time.
If they weren't all carrying knives and had about 20 cousins waiting to murder me in a dark alley, I'd turn around and be totally nasty back.
and not claim to be racist. that's SO much worse that the 'big willies' thing.
Its actually a fact. They do carry knives.
I'm not linking their race with this fact. Chavs carry knives too.
Also, yes, they do have a load of cousins waiting to beat people up.
As do chavs.
If you're making racist links from what I've said, its your fault - not mine.
all asians carry knives?
shall i ask the guy sat next to me?
You two have interpreted my phrase in a selective way to make me out to be racist. I do not like this.
'They all carry knives'.
'All the Asian people who insult me, this certain gang, at college, get their knives out and show them off.'
Its pretty odd that the people who appear to be so anti-racist are making links someone with a racist outlook would.
all the ones that give wrighty shit. he's still possibly wrong, but it makes much more sense
Was the post really that difficult to understand?
I don't think it was to be honest. I think its selective hearing, forumwise.
we're just trying to make a point. like you are.
People have got this thread totally wrong though. I wasn't interested in causing controversy, I was interested.
I'm just not down with the whole... complimenting assumptions about people being totally offensive thing.
Sorry if any mixed race people didn't like it.
have to deal with Wrightylew questioning their penis size to some extent every day of their lives?
them one day off a month or something.
'Once you've had black, you'll never go back'
I'm going to lambast them for disgusting racism.
I'm also going to lobby for the banning of the film 'White Men Can't Jump,'
It implies that white men aren't as good at basketball. I am mortally offended.
The PC Brigade.
they always inside edge it down to fine leg
will anyone get that joke?
I did like that.
when someone raises a good point in disagreement, only one person posts a serious response; and even that doesn't really tackle his point.
as the PC Brigade. The PC brigade is invented by right wing people to try and make people on the left look ridiculous and humourless.
and I've never heard a black man say 'once you've had black you'll never go back' outside of a shit british sitcom.
they work as civil servants and at middle management level in city and county councils and waste your council tax on producing leaflets and giving annoying seminars and they anger me nearly as much as the Daily Mail does.
it's cos of opinions like the ones expressed above that you need 'leaflets'. Every person who's ever said 'I'm not racist, but...' is responsible for the 'PC Brigade'. People in county councils do those things because they think they need to, because they have to be seen to do something. Not because they think muslims are going to weep themselves to sleep over christmas lights.
That make people feel like they have to justify their actions with 'I'm not racist, but...'
Fact is, this was a humorous post and lots of people went mad about it.
And if you have any kind of opinion such as 'I think immigration should be restricted,' you're instantly labelled as racist.
but you're expected to back up your opinion with something other than latent xenophobia.
and the amount of money they spend is vastly, vastly overestimated.
the sort of people who don't like it should either run as councillors, or STFU. if they complain and then make no effort to change things, the possibility creeps in that they're comfortably off, don't really care about other people, and enjoy bitching.
He's actually right.
How the fuck is 'White Men Can't Jump' LESS offensive than saying 'blacks have huge todgers'?
was the title of the film...and a comment that Snipes' character makes, along with the fact that white people can listen to but not hear Hendrix, where Woody Harrelson retorts with the fact that Hendrix's band were white
hilarious buddy-buddy good times ensue.
Academically, The two statements are as offensive as each other, however, with society the way it is, The former is a little more off.
a massive issue of priority.
never kidnapped huge numbers of white men from their homes to use as slaves? then complained about their very presence in their country?
and also because WMCJ was written and directed by a white man?
I'd have been black and asked this question, would it have been ok?
you wouldn't have asked this question. you wouldn't think like you do because you'd probably a bit more sensitive to racism as a 'real' issue.
So let's just be hypothetical and say I wasn't sensitive to racism as a 'real' issue, but was black.
Would it be ok?
that, hypothetically speaking, if i was a pigeon and wanted blah blah blah blah.
lets live in the real world and try and think about things in a wider context because we're fairly intelligent people. how about that?
Speak for yourself.
you might be able to get away with it if you yourself were of mixed race, and it was ironic. But then I'd guess you'd already know. I don't know. Shut up. Go away.
against whites, surely?
How exactly does that argument hold water...
The first one...
goes some way to explaining why people are sensitive about racist generalisations. It's all traceable back to decades of white men viewing black men as inherently 'lesser' or fundamentally 'different' to them and subsequent mistreatment/enslavement. Which led the current differences in our society which we're trying to get past by saying 'treat everyone as an individual' but then people say dumb things like 'all asians carry knives and have 20 cousins' like wrighty did up there^^^.
Here we go again.
re-read what you said. you say 'I get shit from asian people (...) if they weren't all carrying knives...'
so you said 'all asian people carry knives'. not 'all big groups of aggressive wankers on street corners' 'all asians'.
see my post further up. You interpreted it as 'all asians carry knives'.
I'm not that fucking stupid.
when you define a group of people by their race YOU make it about their race. if you'd said 'all these wankers at my college who are asian' it's not the same as saying 'all these asians who give me shit'. It shows which bit of them YOU consider the most important attribute.
so either you're not choosing your words carefully enough, or you're racist.
in the context of this thread, definitely not. wrighty posted just under snow brigade's post about asian on white racism...
i'm just trying to explain properly to him why people interpret what he says as racist, because I do try and credit wrighty as being a fairly intelligent person (in the face of all the evidence, lol etc).
If I'd have come out and said 'I get shit from Asians at college' from totally nowhere, then you'd have a point.
Since the topic was in fact racism from Asians towards whites, you don't.
I thought you were suggesting that it is more ok for Black people to be racist.
You don't really make your point clear
I posted a reply to clarify.
I was just trying to get across that The film's title wasn't meant as anti-white propaganda on behalf of the makers.
weren't meant as anti-mixed race. He already said that, but the response was: 'well, it doesn't matter what your intentions were..'
who directed it tbh. I've not seen it so I don't know if it's racist or not. it probably assumes a modicum of intelligence on the part of the viewer which to be fair wrighty probably expects from us too and LO! we rise to the bait. But the point is that wrighty says lots of ignorant stuff like this but that's because Amazement! he's young and he's still forming his opinions of the world. If he's still saying shit like this when he's 20 I'll be worried.
The thread wasn't to 'get a rise' at all.
Yes, we as a nation did lots of wrongs. I didn't, so why should we ALL be tarnished with this brush? Isn't this kind of generalisation the kind of thing that leads to racism?
'I was beaten up by a black man. I fucking hate blacks'
Racist comment, born out of a hatred for ONE person.
Our society shouldn't be giving anybody ANY advantage over anyone else, THAT'S equality.
We've been unfair to women, black people, Irish people...the list goes on. Should we tip toe around everyone because of this?
I wasn't saying that black people etc. DO have an advantage over anyone else, but I hope you see the point I was making anyway..
inheriting race-based guilt serves no useful purpose and is utterly weak-minded.
it's about understanding why people are sensitive. and trying to move away from generalisations about race. You can't just go 'but we weren't alive then and no one's 'properly' racist anymore so I wish black people would stop complaining' which seems to be a highly prevalent attitude these days.
But if I get beaten up by a black man, should ALL black people then tip toe around me and expect a modicum of mistrust?
On a much larger scale, that's what you're saying!
how you've got from what I've said to that.
if only one white person enslaved one black person a few centuries ago we wouldn't be having this debate.
thing is a huge impediment to race relations.
There is no-one alive now who owned slaves and no former slaves alive.
Shouldn't we really be concentrating on racism NOW?
but you have to understand the context that racism has had in the past to deal with it. We have to look to the past to understand how we deal with the present. It's why we take history lessons.
Essentially all we need to know is that there was racism in the past....
anything else isn't really helpful.
You're saying that we white people, none of whom were ever involved with the slave trade, should tiptoe around black people, who themselves were never involved in the slave trade...
I just find it a bit of a strange argument. It's not our fault, there's nothing we can do about it.
And I have to say, I know so many black people who would NEVER react like this. I can almost guarantee that everyone who cried racism here was white....
with many many other thing's wrighty's posted like this that people have reacted in this way.
and you're right. there are far more important things to worry about than some joke (if it was a joke) about penis sizes.
that said, you can't deny that it's a racist thing to say. and most of the rest of the thread is trying to explain why it is OR denying that it is. which is kind of interesting and kind of important.
i think i may even have denied it twice. and you know i'm neither unintelligent nor bigoted.
because it is a racist comment. As racist comments go it's pretty harmless. but it's still a racist comment. and it doesn't have to be intended as one to be one.
have we all overreacted? probably
has it raised some interesting issues? definitely
I don't think it was a racist comment.
It was playing upon a sterotype. I think Racism has to intend some harm or insult really.
is a racist thing to do. however minor or ultimately inoffensive it may be.
UNLESS it is intended to harm/insult or say as said below that one race is Superior or Inferior to another
playing on stereotypes become racist?
please rank these statements in order of how racist they are - not in order of offensiveness. and please explain what makes each one more racist than the last.
1) all black men wear hats
2) all black men are rapists
3) all black men have big noses
4) all black men listen to rap music
5) all black men are stupid
which of these is the most racist statement?
I'd have to point out that the people who seem to have been most offended by this are.......
Who are offended by the prospect that something might be seen to hurt someone else's feelings even though nobody has said it has..
Granny state culture, anybody?
I'm trying to argue that it's a racist thing to say, even though it's not a VERY racist thing to say.
a racist thing to say...
it perpetuates a view that one race is superior or inferior to another. given the lack of value judgements attached to having a big willy, and the lack of value judgements attached to the notion of racial purity, i don't think that wrighty's post did that.
god i have to get off DiS!
but once again. I'm not trying to make a grand philosophical proclamation. I'm trying to explain something to wrighty because he says he doesn't understand why it's racist, so I'm trying to explain. however to do so properly would require a much longer post than i have time for and blah blah blah....
are taking up at least as much time as this much feted long post anyway :-P
let's both quit NOW.
I was just thinking that as I typed.
something about language affecting thought processes and in turn language chosen being indicative of underlying thought processes
if you're not racist don't talk like one
generalisations are racist
everyone can tell the different between a joke and genuine racism
Its exactly the same here.
complaining about the treatment of yourself and those around you is one thing. fixing treatment received by people you never knew, in the past, on people in the present is another. people who would seek to do this either have their own agenda, which should be evaluated on its own terms, or are identifying themselves with characteristics such as race, nationality, etc, which i'd be wary and frankly scornful of.
Despite it being a hell of a lot more recent, and there being many people still here who survived it, why are the Germans not falling over themselves to accomodate us and ensure they NEVER make anti-England jokes and possibly even apologising every ten minutes for the war?!
Exactly. When it's countries, it seems slightly different to colour for some reason..
that I haven't said. which is probably my fault. This requires a much longer post than I've time and inclination to do. But i'll try and quickly explain myself a bit better...
I'm not saying that we The White Race have to accept blame and make amends for The Errors of the Past. I'm trying to explain why Race generally is still a sensitive issue. I'm not suggesting that we can 'fix' what happened in the past. But there are still very much knock-on effects of it today which most people would like to see smoothed out by tolerance/acceptance/good old fashioned being friends. And the lumping together of entire groups of people doesn't help.
You can't change the past but you can't deny its effects on the present. And 'those who forget history... etc etc'.
but you can, and should, try to differentiate, precisely and intelligently, unavoidable effects of history and the use of history to further certain agendas.
OOH..SOOOOO controversial !!
youve all played into his hands.
do the sensible thing..
IGNORE HIM. And just hope he goes away.
it's turned into an interesting, if somewhat cliched, debate.
for taking what I meant to say and saying it better. And before me.
I even just took 5 minutes to think of the word for "saying it better" was
making me feel sllloowww
Heated state-of-country debate
Smug protest of innocence
I made that point earlier in my mind.
But usually its supposed to get people talking. But I didn't realise it would be found offensive at all this time.
I wish this was actually supposed to be a comedic thread, I'd probably really proud and stuff.
But its actually not. People just like to think I'm being 'racist and ignorant', no matter what my intentions were in the first place. If I'd have been complaining, then yeah, get angry and stuff. I was generally interested is all.
You're all just keen to sniff out some racist agenda. Must think it looks good.
i dont like it. it's not funny, and it is verging on racist. though i believe you are genuinely too stupid to see how it is racist and didnt mean it to be.
and saying that people are just stupid if they don't get it is NOT an explanation.
this thread is ridiculous.
Happens quite a lot.
A load of people throw the 'r' word around, but when they're asked to back it up, they cop out, and call you a retard for not understanding it.
You're just as bad as the Daily Mail, you responsible.
Hang your heads in shame.
But, as per, you respond with 'nonsense'.
read my other posts.
found this offensive they would have to be a complete.
"first the white man enslaves me, then he makes generalisations about the size of my penis!!! :("
if i wrote a thread about if you are half chinese do your slanty eyes get diluted, people would think it racist.
just because in your opinion having a big dick is a positive generalisation, it is a generalisation nonetheless. and racial generalisations, are- by definition- racist.
"a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others."
Thank you dictionary dot com.
Here are some more:
"hatred or intolerance of another race or other races."
"The belief that race accounts for differences in human character or ability and that a particular race is superior to others."
what i said? cos it doesnt.
good ol' dictionary.com. a perfect replacement for a brain / power of reason.
If you're going to talk about untrue definitions I think throwing in the actual definition would be helpful.
You said that any generalisation about race is racist the statement clearly shows this isn't true. Unless not having a big penis is an acheivement.
generalisations are lazy and ignorant = fact.
sorry about that.
and admit you don't know what racism means.
*seethes with rage at annoying and ignorant child.
my time educating you. it's not my job.
that sounds awfully like loser talk.
is highly offensive.
If you now pretend you were unaware of his hair colour, and meant no harm towards ginger haired people, I'm going to call you an idiot, because you clearly don't understand why its offensive.
If you then ask ME why its offensive, I will not respond.
made by the ginger - haired man in the picture.
1) Other people, non-ginger, could be offended at this.
2) Its obviously been photoshopped to say R_CISM.
The fact that he has gonger hair wasn't meant to be anything to do with it.
You've gone wayyy sideways on this one.
oh how I tickle myself.
sattire. Or something.
see my "Gonger"
and raise me a "Sattire"?
Both to the picture, the response and...just...life, really.
I'm from Essex. I've had my background mocked ALL my life. But if I reacted like some of these people, I'd be extremely unpopular by now.
More so than I am...
at what point does
playing on stereotypes become racist?
please rank these statements in order of how racist they are - not in order of offensiveness. and please explain what makes each one more 'racist' than the last.
1) all black men wear hats
2) all black men are rapists
3) all black men have big noses
4) all black men listen to rap music
5) all black men are stupid
which of these is the most 'racist' statement?
intent should be a factor in how you react to something.
but it isn't a factor in whether something's racist or not. A racist joke is still racist. But how you react depends on whether it's being told by Nick Griffin or someone who you know isn't racist.
All black men are rapists
All black men are stupid
All black men have big noses (not even sure of this)
The rest aren't.
I must ask, if somebody made a joke about an essex girl, or Essex being full of chavs, would you be jumping up and down like this in my defence, restlessboy?
because it would be a joke.
Please understand. I'm not all offended about what wrighty said. I just want someone to explain to me why one thing based on a racial stereotype is 'racist' and another isn't.
If somebody is offended by something, it's 'offensive' (that doesn't just count for race jokes)
I have to say, which of the two comments would you rather hear:
Restlessboy must have a huge cock because of where he comes from.
Restlessboy must be a slut and a chav because of where he comes from.
Now, tell me why there was such a fuss about Wrightylew's comments, but you just said Essex jokes are OK?
i said jokes are okay. I've said elsewhere that the 'fuss' is down to people knowing wrighty, more so than what he said. It'd be interesting to see how people reacted if it was a first time post from someone.
Please, PLEASE find me ONE black man who finds it offensive us saying he's got a big cock!
(and a note to all those people saying racism is putting people down - isn't saying 'he's got a far bigger cock than me! actually putting US down?)
You started off with 'what you said was racist, end of'.
Now you're saying its because I personally said it, and it wouldn't have been racist if others had said the same thing?
I find that pretty offensive to be honest. You've been proved pretty wrong here, so you try personal snipes to justify your weak point?
I didn't say it was because you said it that it was racist. I meant it was because you said it that people have reacted this way.
I'm pretty sure i've said elsewhere in the thread that I don't think you're racist. What i've been trying to do is explain my point because you keep saying 'no one's explaining why it's racist'. I've not been 'proved' wrong. People disagreeing with me doesn't prove me wrong.
It boils down to whether racism is subjective or not. Other people seem to be arguing that it is. I'm arguing that it's not subjective but something which is racist can be more or less offensive/worthy of a reaction depending on context or who says it.
In this context the fact that you said it is what's provoked a reaction. I'm trying to show you that someone can say something racist/offensive without intending to or being 'a racist'.
are clearly racist.
The other aren't necassarily so.
Is it because I'm from essex?
the others aren't necassarily going to be used to create the implication that Black Men are inferior to men of other races.
Racism is about superiority.
so, liek, white, yeah?
so you posting from some position where you can say its not offensive is as ridiculous as me saying taht because im half australian i can excuse things?
were my thoughts as well. Being half Maltese is pretty different to having one parent who is white European and another who is Black African.
are twats and i want them to die
Nope. I'm lost
and hes talking about miscegenation as an impurity
and hes showing that he assumes that all black people have giant willies
statistically, black people probably do have, on average, bigger penises.
but statistically, white people, say, earn more money in the UK, so its the equivalent of, say, "If you're half white, do you get rich too? Or is it kind of diluted as your racial purity is diluted?", thinking that race is the be all and end all in these things
anyway, for people to be offended by this, and to express their offense is completely acceptable, and to put people down for being offended as if youre some kind of superlogical ubermensch is lame
i dont find his comments offensive as such, just stupid. i think its pretty obvious that cases vary a lot, but that, on average, half black, half white men probably have larger penises than white men
and obviously money has nothing to do with genetics. Race obviously has a massive role in some genetic factors.
Purity didn't have any implications. What else was he supposed to say?
I think laying into wrighty and calling him racist was ridiculous.
i dont find it offensive
wrightylew makes shit stirring threads, he posted one with lots of potentially offensive ideas in it, people were offended. he knows people's perceptions of him here, and could have easily phrased it differently to find out the information he actually wanted
is just another sex thread, right?
can't be arsed to read it...
Is the gist. I think.
either that or
Let's Kick Racism Out Of Turkeys
the fact that you call anyone who uses generalisations lazy, yet, devoid of an argument, you retort to 'they must all be racists...'
It's a proven fact that black men are, on average, half an inch larger than white men.
So far from generalising in a terrible and racist manner, Wrightylew was stating a fact.
who's going to be first to apologise to him then?
racial classifications are unpleasant. simple as that.
is the be all and end all in research into racial differences.
Answering the question that was raised.
Go back and read the thread:
wrightylew: question about cock size
everyone else: That's racist! Suggesting black people have large cocks is a generalisation.
Me: No, it's fact.
So perhaps you'd do well to actually back up your argument rather than calling people racists because they dare to talk about *gasp* black people..
Tell me what's your flava?
yo calling him a gay?
whats wrong with that?
JUST COS YOU CHOOSE TO DEFINE YOURSELF BY YOUR GENDER
then just browse through some porn? I guess amateur porn would probably reap the most accurate results?
You could maybe ask some websites to get you in touch with their male 'models' and then they can give you some measurements to analyse or something?
goodies won in this thread. We kind of argued the high horses out of it.
-I was misinterpreted as being racist
-I tried to explain I wasn't being offensive and was genuinely interested. I then asked people to explain why I was being racist. In return, I received bad comparisons and terrible weak arguments involving slavery.
-People then changed their minds and decided that the reason the thread was racist, was because I had posted it, and I am apparently racist. Thus, dodging the need for an explanation for branding the initial post - racist.
People like glasso remained in the thread throughout and argued their corner. The opposition drifted in and out, and threw insults in, like children.
Its been quite an embarrassing read to be honest. Some of you look completely ridiculous.
"Some of you look completely ridiculous."
Nobody can accuse you of lacking self awareness...
You haven't contributed anything to this thread, apart from picking up at the end and trying to get your boring voice heard with little snaps of tedium.
If my post was 'racist', your post was 'tear-inducingly boring'.
In short: piss off.
didn't contribute anything to a moronic thread about genitals that somehow segued into being about racism? Shame on me.
I've not accused you of being racist on this thread or anywhere else, have I?
'...was because i had posted it, and i am apparently racist'. get over yourself, i have no idea who you are and what sort of wacky and controversial online persona you have created.
what you wrote was ignorant and offended some people, that's why people got annoyed.
else stop taking him seriously at 'giant willy'?
are slightly silly.
by it but i wasn't offended as such - what are the implications for my penis size?
See my above post.
REALLY cares what you say but they find engaging you in arguments boosts their self-esteem because you're so intellectually limited
that's fine. at least i know where i stand.
that everyone, during their life, has said or done something ignorant, whether they meant to or not.
I wish all this mudslinging would just stop, to be honest. When people get all ignorant on my ass, I don't react like that. I mean, you can't get much more ignorant than this: I was on a date with a woman, and going to a gig, so happened to be carrying some books along to sell.
The woman read the back of my book. On the back of the book, it says 'when NSH was two, he was diagnosed with a kind of Cerebral Palsy that meant he couldn't tie his shoelaces for fifteen years'. She said 'this is a fucking joke, right?!'.
I could have left her with her drink there and then, but no - I had a decent, reasoned discussion with her without calling her any names, and we went on to have a pretty pleasant evening. We'll probably e-mail each other a bit more, and then it'll peter out.
And whereas she showed genuine ignorance, posting inflammatory stuff about mixed-race cocks just shows an awareness of what's racist and what isn't and a willingness to argue about it.
a thread by wrightylew referencing mixed race? thats never going to have racist undertones is it!
I personally think the assumption that black people are well-endowed IS racist as it constitutes the sexualisation and primitivisation of an entire racial group. But other people don't. What his comments definitely ARE is flamebait. People shouldn't be rising to it.
'Mudslinging' - are you saying that in a debate of this nature, we can't talk about anything brown? I hope you were joking because that's fucking ridiculous.
the mudslinging bit.
Terry Thomas would comment "Long doooong!" and flash his gap provocatively.
because that bit was a joke, but the bit below was a serious point, and there wasn't much effort made to differentiate between the two...
a bit of a break between the two points i guess. I agree with you, his actual comments might not have been racist in some people's eyes but indeed lead to a stupid argument. or something yeah.
basically i wanted to make my point without reading 330 replies so i jumped in with mudslinging, a term i don't genuinely feel is racist in that context. ha.
this reply is a verbose pile of shit.
and i was unnecessarily strong in that other post, so i contradicted my own point. i see the point you were trying to make now...
oh dear. i'm going to go back to 'entering things in boxes onto a database'.
