I saw this earlier on and assumed it was a piss-take.
It must be a piss-take, right?
|>>|| No. 4920
I've never been sure whether half-caste and coloured are meant to be offensive or not. I've definitely never heard them used anywhere near offensively, if a police asked me for someones description I'd consider half-caste to be perfectly acceptable to say. Same for handicapped, I'd even go as far as to say it's more polite than disabled.
Rent-boy isn't offensive, it's a job description. I'm sure our government would agree with this.

I don't know, this is Liverpool after all.
|>>|| No. 4922
Bloody euphemism treadmill. Look at half-caste, coloured, cripple, and handicapped on there, they don't belong. And 'man up'? Sure, gender stereotyping, but offensive in only very specific contexts. And when did gypsy become a term of abuse?
Lists like these make me angry - not that people shouldn't be protected from offence, but that people choose to use them to offend, and be offended by them, in the first place.

>I've never been sure whether half-caste and coloured are meant to be offensive or not.
I don't think the words themself are offensive, but they're archaic and the historic connotations they have mean you'll be painted as an ignorant bigot if you use them. It's why it's acceptable to say Brit but it isn't to say Paki.
|>>|| No. 4924
Half-caste is racist, you racist buffoon. I dare you to say it to my face. You racist twat.

Why should I say it when you play like a girl, you pikey midget!
|>>|| No. 4926
Yeah yeah. Wha yu mean when yu say half-caste. I'll tell you what I fucking mean - mixed race. Nothing else. Isn't it your own problem if you perceive racism where there's none?
|>>|| No. 4927
To be honest, I didn't even know half-caste was racist until someone in maths class called me half-caste and the teacher flipped her shit. But yes, it is offensive thanks to glorious British history and racism. It simply means half pure.
|>>|| No. 4928
Mate it is racist but good on you for telling me, a half-caste, what is and what isn't a racist term. The all knowing white Englishman sure schooled me. It is your destiny, your burden, the white man's burden, to educate us less pure fools.
|>>|| No. 4933
Yes. If you feel the urge to chastise divers and players feigning injuries then you need to check your privilege, cis scum.
|>>|| No. 4934
>check your privilege, cis
Well judging by the context you're using them in you haven't got a clue what these mean, have you?
|>>|| No. 4935
I was unaware "spic" was in common usage here.
Also my aunt is still convinced "coloured" is fine to say.
|>>|| No. 4936
Spic? It isn't common but the owners of Liverpool are American. So...
|>>|| No. 4937
I do, but I couldn't think of a funny word to use instead of 'cis', check your priviledge scruples-scum?
|>>|| No. 4939
Because people who don't dive and play-act are more privileged than those who do and should therefore check their privilege before they criticise them.

My Grandad thinks 'wog' is acceptable because it stands for 'western oriental gentleman'.
He's a good person, really, but my word...
|>>|| No. 4942
It's better than calling them Chinky, Nip, Gook, Ricer or slanty-eyed bastard.
My friends told me off when I said one of them had yellow fever for fancying a Chinese lass. Madness.
|>>|| No. 4943
Ladmate, do you know what wog means and where the "Western Orient" is pertaining to?
I mean, you're quite right in that it would be better than calling them a chink but that's only because you'd have to be a pretty shit racist to confuse the two. Or, come to think of it, a really good one; "they're all just fucking foreign to me".
|>>|| No. 4944
I thought wog was short for golliwog and meant for black people, but I naively assumed Western Oriental Gentlemen meant Chinkies that have moved here. Sorry for not being au fait with my racist vernacular.
|>>|| No. 4947
I'm pretty sure my elderly relatives use "wogs" to mean black people.
They're Irish and they were bemoaning the fact that when they first moved to London, most houses to let said "No Irish" and the ones which accepted Irish people were "all full of wogs."
|>>|| No. 4949
>My Grandad thinks 'wog' is acceptable because it stands for 'western oriental gentleman'.
I hope you set him right on that one.

Too fucking right. They're many things, but one thing they ain't is gentlemen.

It's quite funny how the bin-dippers are asking for loyalty from Suarez while they've just shipped off Reina to Napoli on loan without letting him know.
Fuck knows why Arsenal have bid £40,000,001 for him. At first I thought they were doing it as an exercise to show they're willing to spend big money this summer, but it now looks as if they're being serious and actually want to sign him.
|>>|| No. 4955
I don't know, either.
There's nothing racist in using 'Bongo Bongo Land'. It says more about the people inferring that it's offensive. There must be people who spend their spare time Googling words to see if they have any negative connotations, no matter how tenuous, so they can explode and get offended on someone else's behalf if some unsuspecting soul uses them.
|>>|| No. 4956
I don't know, Bongo Bongo land stinks of Victorian explorers running after some black people to enslave in the forests of Africa somewhere.
|>>|| No. 4958
"Bongo Bongo land" is right out of the same dictionary as "fuzzy-wuzzy" or "jungle-bunny", a long-established piece of classically racist language dating back at least a hundred years or so. Essentially it comes from a faux-ignorant position of lumping places like Sudan and Ghana all into the same pot because "they all look alike and their names all sound the same".
|>>|| No. 4959
Victorian explorers, those notorious slavers.
Just because you erroneously think something sounds racist doesn't actually make it racist, bwana. It's just a lazy excuse to have a pop at UKIP when there's enough legitimate reasons to do so.
|>>|| No. 4960
Have a look at >>4958 lad. Nobody is having a pop at UKIP, they aren't doing themselves any favours by letting their racism leak out every once and again.

>Bloom was ejected from the Mansion House in 2009 for heckling Lord Turner for giving staff a bonus after the massive regulatory failure of 2008/9. According the Daily Telegraph he was the first man to be ejected since John Wilkes in the late 18th century. Bloom also signed the petition in disgust at the knighthood for the failures of Hector Sants
>In October 1992 Bloom launched a campaign to help people avoid mis-selling of pension schemes. It was very warmly welcomed by the press, particularly the Observer. It was the very first indication of the problem. An employee tape of the advice was produced for all human resource departments as part of a redundancy package.
>Bloom claims that most MEPs have "little or no business experience" and do not understand the consequences of their actions.
>Bloom told an interview that, "no self-respecting small businessman with a brain in the right place would ever employ a lady of child-bearing age." Around the same time, he said that "I just don't think [women] clean behind the fridge enough" and that "I am here to represent Yorkshire women who always have dinner on the table when you get home." Bloom told BBC Radio 4's Today that his comments were "said for fun" to illustrate a more serious point, that equal-rights legislation was in fact putting women out of work.
>Bloom was filmed at the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen congratulating the French for bombing the Rainbow Warrior, a Greenpeace ship, in 1985.
It's quite mild, really. In some of these you can argue he's right. However, I live in East Yorkshire and whenever he's in the local media he comes across like a complete knobhead.
On another note, from looking at the Wikipedia page history for their entry on Bongo Bongo Land it seems it was only created because of his comments. It's still awaiting a citation that it's derogatory and on speculation that the name comes from bongo drums.

Utter bollocks. You are posting absolute bollocks. Complete twaddle.
Jungle bunny is a racist American term from the 60's. Fuzzy wuzzy was a nickname for a Beja tribe that's no worse than referring to Germans as The Hun or Jerry during the First World War. If the term Bongo Bong Land is a 'long-established piece of classically racist language' then you should be able to easily prove it; it is not an antiquated term from the days of Are Empire. To quote an earlier post in the thread:
>Just because you erroneously think something sounds racist doesn't actually make it racist

Mate, you can use it. I doubt whether the word is racist or not would really change your mind anyway.

The Graun fluff pieces about Bloom are dire and they have, quite rightly, been savaged BTL.

No, the police have decided to start enforcing long-standing laws that criminalise a crippling lack of imagination.

Judging by the quotes, he didn't say anything outrageous except for this bit about feminism. It is undeniably true that many men are dirty pigs with no concept of hygiene and many women are not very tech-savvy.
|>>|| No. 4974
You won't be saying that after they throw you in the gulags for posting on a forum that Chelsea are a plastic club with plastic fans or for Tweeting that Rio is a bit of a cunt or that Torres dives like a girl.
|>>|| No. 4975
What's wrong with that? Women only get mad at the toilet seat being left up because they don't always look before sitting down and sometimes fall in. Nowt to do with hygiene.
|>>|| No. 4976
It is, actually. If you flush with the lid up specks of shit and wee come flying out of the toilet.
|>>|| No. 4978
Well aye but you don't sit around for the bog to finish its work before repositioning the seat/lid do you?
Lid should always be down on a toilet lest it's in use tbh..
|>>|| No. 4979
I’m loath to enter Godfrey Bloom’s childish world of stereotypes (“Ukip MEP disparages women drivers, feminists … and mild-mannered men”, 21 August) but just to make a point I played in three consecutive rugby league Universities Athletic Union finals, am still involved widely in many sports, and also support the goals of feminism.
I admit I leave the toilet seat up, but my wife (probably known to Mr Bloom as “the little woman”) also refuses to conform to stereotype and never mentions it. Neither of us have knowingly had sand kicked in our faces.
--Michael O’Hare, Northwood, Middlesex
Gosh, a real man reading The Independent (letter, 22 August)? What next?
--Godfrey Bloom MEP (Ukip, Yorkshire and the Humber), Wressle, East Riding of Yorkshire
He's such a prick.
|>>|| No. 4980
Nope, that just ensures that whatever godawful stench you made in the toilet bowl only sticks around to greet the next person who uses the loo. Smells don't dissipate without ventilation. Leave the lid up.
|>>|| No. 4983
There's no stench unless you leave skidmarks or your toilet is defective. If you take a shit you should make a quick check and use the brush if necessary. The basin should have some toilet duck put in it at least once a fortnight too.
But really I hate selfish toilet users.
|>>|| No. 4984
Or the residents of the house you're staying in are male and apparently make godawful shits of such a reek that you can most definitely smell it hours after you know the toilet was last used? Admittedly their house isn't spotlessly clean and their toilets are a bit gross to begin with, but my housemate does it to my scrupulously clean toilet and the toilet always smells more when he's left the lid down on it.
Furthermore, the brush is not for cleaning shit out of the toilet. It's for scrubbing the toilet with once you've chucked a load of cleaner down it; the idea of using a toilet brush to rid a loo of stubborn skidmarks and then putting it back in the holder without first dumping it in a load of bleach makes me fucking shudder.
I bet you do that, don't you? You wipe your shit all over a toilet brush and then just put it straight back in its little holder, for your shit-germs to colonise and multiply among the bristles.
"/ocd"? Fuck off.
|>>|| No. 4985
No, I scrape with the brush, hold it in the basin for a second mini flush then put it back in the holder which is a well of disinfectant.

He admits that he enjoys winding up Guardianistas and the like because they always take the bait. It's just IRL trolling.

Really? I can't say it any more? How is Yid Army negative? I will say it when I get there.
|>>|| No. 5039
It's not really about Spurs fans saying Yid, it's about Chelsea fans doing gas chamber impressions. Ajax have a similar co-opted Jewish association, which has led to some very ugly scenes with rival fans chanting "We hate the Jews" and giving the Nazi salute. There's a very real risk that football rivalries can normalise anti-Semitism.
|>>|| No. 5040
Just like there's a very real risk that schoolkids drawing swastikas on school desks will start world war three I assume.
|>>|| No. 5041
How exactly do you do a gas chamber impression?
|>>|| No. 5042
It is bullshit. You can't cure racist in football because the fans themselves are racist scums and the dregs of society. All these laws are trying to do is making football more middle-class. This has been the case since the 80s.
|>>|| No. 5043
You only have to look to Italy to see that it's a serious concern. Two Spurs fans were stabbed in Rome last year in an attack that the Italian police treated as an anti-Semitic incident. Paolo Di Canio is covered in fascist tattoos; In 2010 he attended the funeral of Paolo Signorelli, a fascist terrorist who had been convicted for his involvement in the Bologna massacre in which 85 people died.
There were clear historical links in Britain between football firms and groups like the National Front and Combat 18. Do you not remember when banana throwing and monkey chants were commonplace in British football?
|>>|| No. 5045
I don't think you have any idea how the word yid and tottenham hotspur are related.

You shouldn't, it was flavour of the month in the media when he got the Mackems job. The only people who care are those who have no interest in football, like when Richard Keys and Andy Gray were sacked.

Yet again ARE GODFREY gets a bum deal.
Though, since we're on /spo/, I suppose the rainbow laces thing deserves some mention. Right behind gay footballers. Personally, I don't mind being right behind gay footballers, but quite frankly if you haven't worked out the punchline by now there's really no hope for you.

I have no idea how many clubs wore them. It looked like a very poorly organised gimmick.

>Manchester United has apologised after a 'swastika-style' logo was sent out to fans in a newsletter alongside the Nazi affiliated title "New Order".

What similarities? Crying racism has become its own industry.

Same. I thought it was some new right-wing magazine/newsletter.

But then you stopped to actually look at it and realised it's nothing like a swastika? It's certainly not something worth apologising for, this stinks of Baddiel.

This one looks a lot like swastika. When you tilt your head and squint. And scroll past it on a webpage. When will Pope finally apologise for this poor design decision?

That would make three of us, then.
BAN THIS SICK FILTH, I say.

Well, swatika has a cross in it. What else do you need? Also, "One Lord, one faith, one baptism" sounds really similar to "Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer" to me.
