Hi adey mate!
Quote:Whether you know or not I'm black, so racism has always been a part of my life. I've experienced it first-hand on a regular basis.
I know you are black amigo. I cannot for one minute understand what racial abuse must be like as I have never experienced it first or third hand.
Quote:However, that has never stopped me from judging a person for who they are not what they are. I don't care whether you are black, green, white pink or whatever. So long as you are a good person, open-minded and have a huge heart then that's fine in my book.
I have close muslim, chinese and jewish friends as well as black friends at work. I try to take an individual as I find them and not prejudge based on colour or religion.
Quote:Now, as far as Suarez is concerned I think it has been blown out of proportion a little by the media but the thing is UK, is that you would never be able to understand what kind of effect those type of words do to black people. It's an imprint in the brain that sets off that emotion which makes black people act that way. It's just genetic and it really comes off as derogoraty.
You are correct that I cannot know what thats like and I agree its derogatory, insulting, ignorant and stupid. But I don't believe that calling someone 'black' is racist.
Quote:I also don't think it was in the " heat of the moment " because if Suarez is used to calling black people that name in his own country. With that being the case then surely it's premeditated and not a heat of the moment comment.
I think the heat of the moment thing probably applies to John Terry more than Suarez. At no point did Suarez seem overtly angry, but its clear he was trying to wind Patrice Evra up.
Quote:The ends doesn't justify the means.
Other than that I agree with most of the other things you said. Evra has now opened a big can of worms.
Inclosing, it does make me laugh when people get offended if someone calls a black man a black man. Because if someone calls me that I'll just say " yeah..I'm black ..so....? "
I do think all the PC bullshit has gone too far, I'm not saying you should insult anyone from any walk of life but if you're black, you're black, and should be proud of it. Same with any other colour you are.
I agree with you mate. Though until each of us has walked a mile in your shoes I doubt we can ever truly understand.
As I said previously, we need to stamp out real racism, not this PC inspired nonsense.
Quote:Happy New Year to you too and you'll lose to the Toon tomorrow night.
I actually think Andy Carroll will score tonight - call me crazy. Demba Ba is on one hell of a run of form though, still our defence is as good as anywhere.
Quote:Not that we are doing any good. We'll probably draw with Villa and lose to Wolves on Monday.
Talk of Chelsea getting the Hulk in January...they might start selling the comic at the club store?
Quote:Oh yeah..then there's the case of John Terry............hhhmmmm..:-)
John Terry is probably the most nefarious character in the Premiership. He is certainly many things, but I do not believe a racist is one of them. This is a guy who has spent most of his life working closely with people from many different ethnicities. There is simply no way he's a 'real' racist.
Quote:and Thor is number one...keeping the topic on topic
Not reading it at the moment mate. I'm waiting until Fraction departs.
