    Imagine singing the words “Hankey Pankey, Shanghai, Hankey panky, Shanghai” sang to the tune of happy birthday, whilst narrowing your eyes in a parody of a Chinaman, and then imagine that your kids teacher is teaching the kids that.

    Is it racist ?

    whilst narrowing your eyes in a parody of a Chinaman,

    *Cough* by “Chinaman” I presume you mean ethnic Manchu? Unless you were trying to be a post modern stealth meta racist???

    LGBT

    LGBTQIA these days. Do try and keep up.

    Are you the teacher?

    I think something is only considered racist if it’s used in a nasty sort of way.

    The fact that there’s singing and kids involved with the above scenario makes me think it was supposed to be lighthearted fun, not racist. Of course, it’s possible to find offence in almost anything these days, so who knows?

    It is just that a friend is a bit perturbed by his 6 year old son coming home and making slanteyes and singing the words above, both taught to him by his teacher.

    I’ve not been in a school since the 1980’s and I though things had moved along a little bit.

    No, just like blacking up and singing unbongo song it not because it is just a bit of fun and if it’s fun to someone it can’t be racist.

    Seriously, didn’t you hear about Brexit? Half of Britain is a racist.

    Is this entire thread a troll?

    From an outside perspective, it would be presenting a very negative take on the glowingly amazing community that STW is.

    Just saying.

    It sounds like a episode of father Ted

    Is the teacher Dutch?

    I think this might be a Dutch thing.

    I believe the current PC term is LGBT+

    I’m guessing the plus is because there’s too many variations and no one can be arsed to type them all out.

    Doh auto correct

    Sounds like a bad teacher. Probably had a nasty moment in the supplies cupboard.

    no one can be arsed to type them all out.

    Clearly, some arseholes can.

    The lyrics in the OP though seem more like a sex tourism though, so, definitely some issues there!

    [Sensible answer time ] This sort of shit has no place nowadays. As a kid I used to come home from school in tears because of taunting. I used to wish I could be white. My dad realised the bother and taught me how to properly punch someone. After that I never hesitated and would hit immediately on provocation. I was in front of the teachers a lot because of this. But it was worth it to avoid that individual doing it again. Now this was bitd when attitudes were different. I would hope now that kids wouldn’t need to fight their way through childhood. That a teacher today is encouraging outdated and racist behaviour is beyond belief.
    [Sensible bit over]

    Shit down the teacher’s chimney please

    I just assumed as a CIS male that the ‘plus’ was an abbreviation.

    I don’t actually know. But the OP song does strike me as racist. It sounds like a lads holiday chant to go drill some prozzies.

    Just checking if it’s still wrong to call the Chinese takeaway the chinky even if you’re Chinese?

    *Prays charliemungus doesn’t see this 😉
