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.

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 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.

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".

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.

"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".

>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."[12] 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."[11][13] 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.[11]
>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.

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.

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.

It's not really about Spurs fans saying Yid, it's about Chelsea fans doing gas chamber impressions.

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?

Thought as much.


Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go and protest about Kyle Walker and his promotion of recreational drugs.

The fact that you didn't sage this makes me think you're serious. I really hope that's not the case.

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.

Di Canio has gone. It was likely to end in tears, but the Director of Football buying a load of shite didn't help.

>Manchester United has apologised after a 'swastika-style' logo was sent out to fans in a newsletter alongside the Nazi affiliated title "New Order". The similarities between the logo, which spelt out the letters MUFC, and the Nazi symbol were pointed out after United Uncovered was issued via email.

What similarities? Crying racism has become its own industry.

I was just scrolling down /*/ and I have to admit that on my first pass I did think that was some kind of swastika.

Sage for footy-plebs.

What does Rio think? It's not racism until he says so.

Wrong way around mate, it is racism until Rio says it isn't.

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?

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.
