Is it just me? 19:51 - Jun 10 with 11673 viewsSpruceMoose

Or does anyone else find the thought of Boris Johnson being our PM, something we can never erase from our history books, utterly and thoroughly depressing?

I mean, ffs, what's the point of anything if that sh!tstain is our representative?

Britain's fall to complete laughing stock will be complete should this come to pass.

No. I didn't. Go back and read what I posted. It was literally just about the photo. I can see how it looks that way, but if you read what I actually posted and take it at face value, you'll see you're wrong.


If you say so.

Well you would think that. Surely the people living in London are the best to judge?


Happy, as a Londoner, to tell you that he didn't.

"Unless you physically hurt or kill someone it isn't racist"


Not only did i say the opposite further up, you've put in quotes as though I said it verbatim. Think you need to retract.

That is the most absurd definition of racism I've ever heard. Race based name calling isn't racism? WTF?

Try doing that in the workplace, at football, in a restaurant, anywhere in fact and see how far you get.

Madness.


I wouldn't try doing it because I think it is unacceptable, i just think we need a new category as it is conflated with acts of racism.

I am sorry.

You don’t get to decide what is racist for a group of people you don’t belong to.

Of course people can make mistakes, and apologise, and not make the same mistakes again.

A person that has often been cited as using racist language, by the targets of that persons comments, on multiple occasions, with no apology, is a racist.


It's a bit like the Big Ron thing. What he said was disgraceful and he rightfully lost his job, but how can he be a racist if he spent years and years developing, promoting and defending Brendan Batson, Laurie Cunningham and Cyrille Regis?

Because his job was to win football matches and he felt they'd help him to win football matches. The argument that Ron can't possibly be racist because he played black players is lame.

This is just the "I have black friends" trope written in a different way.

Racists don't have to be card carrying Klan members.

I see the various warnings about players taking this sort of forum behaviour badly haven't sunk in. Well, let me tell you now, if we get off to a stinker this season I know who I'm blaming (and it isn't the players).

Not at all dear boy. All of the above words were used by you towards Joe and myself. So unless you were goading Joe and I.......

I know a West Brom supporter who has written on this, I would have to go back and have a chat to him about who he interviewed specifically but when I asked him about Ron Atkinson his enthusiasm cooled significantly.

I think this issue here is that you have a fundamental misunderstanding of what racism is.
