If Carol was Asian or other non-white, would there be any furore if she had privately said 'gollywog'? What gets my goat is the proliferation of derogative words in rap songs etc where the singers arent prosecuted either here or in the US. That disgusts me.
With you on that one. Was once at Salford climbing wall. Me and my mate were the only ones in there. Playing over the speakers was some rap crap which seemed to be solely comprised of offensive misogynistic lyrics.
Considering how bloody pc uni's are (banning otc from fresher's fairs etc), I was pretty surprised. Mentioned it to the receptionist on the way out, who said gym users sometimes brought cds in to play. The speakers in the gym were broken, so they had silence and we had 'she's a sl*t and takes it up the a** whether she want to or not' (or words to that effect) all evening.
Agree that rap has serious problems with sexism and homophobia and we can address those issues without being racist.
Yes Hora you can be racist if you are not white and I would be just as offended and moan just as much.
"The BBC said complaints over its handling of the situation had now reached 3,348, while the number of calls and emails supporting the corporation had doubled from 60 yesterday to 133 today."
I do find it funny that the situation where the bbc breaks with it's historical record and refuses to support a humanitarian appeal where 1% or the poplulation of a state under siege has been slaughtered in two weeks, an argument on this forum regarding the pros and cons of the obligation under law to support said establishment, and this is what gets people hot under the collar?
Is this the dark ages?
I wonder what world events/government b@lls-ups have been buried by the level of news coverage devoted to this staggeringly unimportant event + with the addition of that unbelievably rare phenomena (slap me with a kipper, I'm stunned) snow in winter, most other things seem to have paled into insignificance.
