Conclusion:

You got weighed, you got measured and you completely got left found wanting

Now i suggest you learn to sort out your potty mouth

Then once you have done that, learn to acknowledge when wrong.

Then after that, actually grow up

Good luck

I don't give a stuff what you report. I've had enough of your revolting personality and arrogant manner. I have no further interest in discussing anything with you. You're retarded, completely ignorant, bigoted, and pathetic. You lie all the time too.



Contradiction
As you clearly do by stating as such.
More unfounded accusations thrown, simply because she got annihilated in this simple debate
Proving further she needs to grow up[

I go to the US quite often and have plenty of family there.

And it's not like I'm immune to racism.

So your concern is actually quite patronising.

Let's not pretend that you know what it's like to be an African American. Lol!

Again you have no comprehension of being born black in the US

Never said you have not experienced racism

I never claimed that I understand what its like to be born black in the US.

The telling point is though, I am willing to listen to them in order to understand further the social issue still prevalent in the US.

So again nobody is saying they were racist but how such a stint could be easily construed as doing so, based on countless such similar events happened and where also backs would have been the victims of such rascal hatred.
So when you attempt to state how it should be viewed, you did so based on very little understanding
If you did understand, you would already then know how it could be easily viewed as racist

Do you understand the issue based around countless years of racial discrimination?

What is surprising is how bad your reply was, is how it was not even comparable, again

It may help before you write that you learn some history mate

Ta

What intent people have "now" has nothing to do with history.

You've admitted that there was no racial intent in this case. Which is why you have no response to my post.

Its because of a deep long rooted history of racially discrimination, as to why the problem still exists

Interesting though that you lay a false claim and make this now about me and nothing in regards to the actual debate

I don't mind having a discussion about racism in America or how "black lives" don't seem to matter to the previledged whites and its historical context.

But this thread wasn't about that. It's whether 2 white girls were being racist by wearing a black face mask. You are conflating this with racism in a historical context.

Two boys.
Again the above shows again why you fail to understand how it can easily be viewed as racist

You then make the absurd notion I am conflating the issue based on no reasoning

The question you need to ask yourself is two fold.

In the US could such a stunt be viewed upsetting to black African Americans?

The answer will be Yes

You do not decide the parameters of the debate either

This thread was about how in fact they were utterly nalive, as it could be easily viewed as being racist.

Again not being born black renders you unable to not only answer the above question and never lay claim that its conflating

Yes, I'm not black. Nor are you.

"Some" may have been offended but their sense of being offended was clearly misplaced in this case. Your attempt to speak on behalf of ALL African Americans is utterly hilarious as it is pathetic. You're not even basing this on any testimony of an African American and just speak on their behalf. Which is in itself, prejudice and racist.

No they are decided by the flow and direction of the debate

Again you lay a claim as if African Americans when they are offended as being misplaced. Based on you never having been born black in the US.
Do you realize how your claim is grounded in a falsehood, based on you failing to understand that people did complain and were offended, which proves the historical aspect as to why some would get offended
I do not even lat claim to speak for All African Americans. but I certainly understand those who would be offended.
You completely then ended with an even further falsified claim,. not backed up with any reason.
Your whole debate methodology is based on attempting discrediting, not reason.
Why you constantly come up short all the time.
Just some helpful advice for you

Now, I'll put my 2¢ worth out here for general contributions to the TOPIC at hand.
a.) these 2 were doing a facial mask
b.) they thought they were rather amusing looking
c.) they put it out on 'SNAPCHAT' because they wanted to share the wealth of their humorous appearance
d.) they didn't title it - weren't attempting any 'BLACK FACE' innuendo
e.) other then the 'PEACE SIGN' that the girl to the right was showing; nothing that these two odd couple did could be misconstrued into a RACIAL ISSUE...

But as with all things shoved out onto our FB/SnapChat/Twitter/Internet --- it's always up to specific individual interpretations and if someone is going to take offence then they'll find SOME THING TO BE OFFENDED BY. It's what we humans do and what we excel at when we aren't trolling around dropping acid verbal attacks at people that we DO NOT KNOW! Suspect

Sorry but until I am convinced otherwise I will certainly see ore point your way to be Bee. However if I am wrong, then I apologise, but the jury is still out.

Two points

Using mental health issues as if to demean people is at best infantile

Second, you are way over sensitive to something if you are telling the truth you are way over reacting to this, if you are innocent. That in fact points to you being emotionally comprised. I suggest you understand people will have suspicions, but seriously, your attempts to insult are very lame and emotively driven

So I will chose to perceive how I want to do so, whether you like that tor not,

No one knows Bee better than me. He and I have been friends for nearly a decade now.

Aspca is not Bee. Bee would come back as Bee or Lone Wolf. Just thought I'd mention.

@Syl: I don't think you can divide life into personal history and national history. I own Scotland's history just as much as any present-day Scottish citizen. Sorry if anyone doesn't like it; I already possess it and it's over here in my back pocket.

Any claim that America doesn't have a British--or Irish, or Italian, or German, or for that matter, African or Asian, etc.--history, is just false. Contrary to all rumors, we didn't just spontaneously materialize in 1776.

The enormous fuss about this is completely absurd.

There are comments about lessons being learned, and that these two girls need an "educational course". The onus seems to be on them to express remorse and "educate" themselves about the dangers of putting black face masks on. Why should they express remorse?

Maybe the ones who need educating are the ones who are sticking their beaks in and telling people they shouldn't put black face packs on and take photos of themselves. Of course they have a black student union where the members think a lesson should be learned. Well yes, the lesson is that they should stop being so paranoid about face packs which happen to be black.

Well we have a lot more history than you do...maybe we just get on with life as it is now and don't persecute the people of today for the atrocities of the past.

Nobody has any different history than anyone else.  Mine is American history, and before that Scottish history, and then before that Celtic history, etc., etc., etc.  It goes back forever as does yours.  You are confusing geographic borders with chronological discontinuity, looking for breaks where there are none.

I find interesting your distinction between being the being the black person and standing outside, seeing the situation of the black person.  It reminds me of the distinction that anthropologists make between structuralism and functionalism.  The structuralist stands outside the culture he is studying, and with detached objectivity records what he sees; but it is argued he can develop no 'feel' for what it's like to be inside the culture.  The functionalist lives within the culture and becomes intimate with every detail of it, but he loses the detached objectivity of being an independent observer.  Levi-Strauss, Structural Anthropology, 2 vols. (1958, 1976).

The problem with arguing the pure functionalist method, is you are locked inside the culture, unable to objectively describe it, or even understand it--least of all, to describe it to other cultures.  I think as a white American I can get close enough to black culture, without being swept into it, it's myths, values and perspectives.  And yes, I do feel with blacks, but not so much that I cannot engage my highly white, Scottish/Massachusetts objectivity, and deal with it that way.

It's a matter of exposure, not clear lines--well, history--that describes life.  The British don't have that closeness to the functional reality of post-slavery, black culture.  They've not been raised by a black nanny, or built a fence with an old black man.  They have not driven down a Louisiana highway and seen the blacks have to drive 5-mph under the speed limits, for fear of being pulled over and beaten by the white cop.  They have no feeling for--as didge puts it--the history of it all.

Consequently, the Brits rather cavalierly say, What's the problem?  White equals black...so of course there can be white racism!   For them, that life is all clear lines.  But where's the nanny?  Where's the white cop?  Where's the beating?  The Brits have not experienced the...well, the history of it all.

 I think American history reveals some appalling crimes against the black population on a scale that can barely be understood here in the UK, particularly in this day and age.   After the abolition of slavery things seemed to get even worse for them, instead of better, and as is pointed out, even today things are  not right.  Perhaps it never will be.   One of the worst things I've seen was the torture and murder of Jesse Washington in 1916.  Inconceivable to me that so many people gathered to watch such a wicked act against another human being.  Be warned, the link is graphic.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lynching_of_Jesse_Washington

I don't think we're so much cavalier about it as much as just not exposed to the scale of horrors experienced in the US.   However, we have had our share of racist murders.

Well that was Quills point earlier on, but I disagree.
I think there has been racism here (and still is) not to the extent as in the USA, and not specifically  to Black people, but Asians especially are definitely still discriminated against.....and in turn they discriminate against not only Whites but people who are from a different background, creed, culture to themselves.

The worst racist incidents I have personally  seen have been between Pakistanis and Indians in my area.

I've got West Indian friends and they hate Asians.  They call them paki's and consider them dirty.  White people don't have a monopoly on racism.

If white/black/Asian/Hispanic people in the US want to get hysterical about this kind of thing, it's up to them I guess. If white Americans want to keep on apologising for what someone else did before they were even born, it's up to them. It sounds to me almost like white Americans are being asked to apologise for being born white, but hey ...

My concern is that they'll try to export their particular kind of paranoia to other countries, or that some people in the UK might take their lead. I would reject any attempt to bring this "microaggression" shite to the UK - that's if it's not here already.

Sure, there are some racial problems in the UK, but we have laws which say that people are equal regardless of their skin colour or whatever, and I don't think we need some idiot telling us that white people must be aware of someone as a "racial/cultural being" at all times. If someone wants to live their whole existence based on what colour they are, or on where their ancestors came from, that's up to them, but I don't see why others should have to pander to them.

I would hate to see the kind of paranoia which is displayed in the US.

I just can't get my head round this "white privilege" shit either.

I mean - at what point are white people in the US told that they're privileged because they're white? When they're little kids? How are they told this? Do their parents say to them - you have to remember that you were lucky to be born white and that it makes you privileged?

I think it's pathetic.

America did one of the biggest ethnic cleansing atrocities in the world.  

The English were pretty much as evil with the Irish and Scots.  Good job they don't hold a grudge otherwise we'd all be fucked.

We are all of us descended from victors who bred.

Dear specsaver/asp, I don't think that asking if you're wolfman in one thread really qualifies as trolling around the community looking for you. However, I have noticed that you're prone to histrionic, OTT reactions. I see that your reaction to the word "specsaver" was a very good example of that. I'm not pandering to your absurd paranoia. You rant as much as you like - it's highly amusing to see you getting so uptight. Taking the meaning of racism too far. - Page 6 3489511464

Anyway, I can find no reference to "Spec & Span" on the internet, but I did find a product called "Spic and Span". Is that a microaggression? Shocked

Specsaver, you've been here for five minutes and you're already disrupting threads. Please take your trolling and do it elsewhere. This was a good thread until you took it off topic.

Get a grip. Didge called you Bee, so I asked if you were wolfman - who is the same person as Bee. That was in one thread, and you got hysterical and brought it to this thread like a demented mad person. You also got hysterical about eddie. You need to calm down before you explode and make a mess of the whole forum. Razz

There are comments about lessons being learned, and that these two girls need an "educational course". The onus seems to be on them to express remorse and "educate" themselves about the dangers of putting black face masks on. Why should they express remorse?

Maybe the ones who need educating are the ones who are sticking their beaks in and telling people they shouldn't put black face packs on and take photos of themselves. Of course they have a black student union where the members think a lesson should be learned. Well yes, the lesson is that they should stop being so paranoid about face packs which happen to be black.

http://www.tmj4.com/news/local-news/uw-whitewater-students-say-blackface-photo-was-really-facial-treatment

Points to show why the above is utterly and completely born from a lack of knowledge on the history of discrimination against African Americans

The first flaw in the above is how it downplays the problem of racism. Failing to recognize that both students were not only naive but fail to evcen comprehend that it could upset some people.

So why could it easily upset some African Americans?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackface#United_States

Yes there has been an on going problem for centuries where African Americans have been stereotyped and insulted this way

So just because they did not intent to be racist, ignorance oin how it can easily offend due to hundreds of years of this abuse up to the present, means they need to understand and learn from this

Maybe its about time that you8 stop makingf poor excuses all the time on just about every thread you on Racismn. Yoi always look for ways to downplay racism, ignore racism, blame the victims etc. Such racial discrimination is wrong, I suggest you start understanding this

You totally miss the point. No one is apologizing, nor is this a blame game. The issue is remedial action.

Today there exists present effects of prior discrimination. Those need to be addressed. That is what is at issue.

Fussing with blame and/or apologies is a waste of time.

It is about blame - we all know this. The "remedial action" stems from trying to make people guilty for being born white.

Well that was Quills point earlier on, but I disagree.
I think there has been racism here (and still is) not to the extent as in the USA, and not specifically  to Black people, but Asians especially are definitely still discriminated against.....and in turn they discriminate against not only Whites but people who are from a different background, creed, culture to themselves.

The worst racist incidents I have personally  seen have been between Pakistanis and Indians in my area.

I've got West Indian friends and they hate Asians.  They call them paki's and consider them dirty.  White people don't have a monopoly on racism.


Horatio you are fabulously correct. I have been saying this for ages.
