Jesus, what's next? Sex classed as politics?

Only if people get political about it.

Julie. Now I'm very confused...

The personal is political, Janneseti.

...and as we've seen from discussion here, art is personal.

Oh by the way. The Racial Aspect of this discussion, was started by other's. You know who they are.
..

It now appears that you are unaware that this thread is about racism. Did you read the OP?

I would be more than happy to see this thread moved over to the politics forum. This has already been suggested to me as a sensible way forward, given the current ambience, and I agree.

Be careful what you wish for. Some of us have been holding back because it is not in the politics forum. ;)

All the personal attacks, denying, misrepresenting Posts, deflection from the above: Just confirms that truth.

Clyde, you are pretty much one of the worst people on this forum for personal attacks.

Es, I believe the word you are searching for is troll.

I hope that he is a troll. The alternative is that he actually believes what he says and that he actually used to be a policeman. :/

Been reading up on this Catalonia independence business. Do you think
Cameron agreed to the Scotland referendum as a way of sticking the boot in
on Spain over the Gibraltar issue?

Cameron agreed to the referendum because he is an arrogant out of touch public school tw*t who has no concept about how the Scottish view the British government.

Careful there lassie, you might get labelled an ex-pat bolshie anarchist by "ssssh you know who..."

You say "ex-pat bolshie anarchist" like its a bad thing.

Neither Wiggo, nor Es99, understand, or fail to admit: I am NOT denying Racism, Institutional Racism, nor any other vile and evil things.

I believe Black People, as ALL Other Oppressed people, can succeed on their own.

Those White People, believing Black People can't: Are exhibiting the 'Bigotry of Low Expectations'.


That's all fine and well if anyone had actually said anything about holding that view. No one has. Which is why you've been accused of a straw man argument, missing the point and ignoring the facts.

Clyde i don't wish to argue about the right to bare arms .

All i will say is that history has proven that sort of arguments like what you use are total crap .

It is a "assumed wright " any gov that thinks taking the weapons away from people will make it easy'er for them to supress a people is forgetting about all the revolutions that have been .You only have to look at the wars we have had in the last couple of decades . Just because the people have guns will not stop a dictator from coming to power .

A bad man will throw out the constitution any way so having it there is a total waste of time , unless you have a vested interest in making the guns in the first place , profit ! is the main reason it is pushed by the gun lobby and you just lap it up B/S and all .

And there is the proof . A dictator will not care about the right to bare arms .
And the people will make there own arms very quickly even if a gov takes them away if they wish to overthrow them . So the whole argument you use is total B/S

The king of England had better arms and a real army but that did not stop Cromwell from over taking the King . The King of France wasn't able to stop the people from cutting his head off either .

Stop lisening to the gun lobby . Just look at history .

Never mind that his sweeping generalisations about Europe and the US seems to have completely ignored the genocide against the native americans, or the deaths caused by the slave trade.

It must be nice to live in Clyde's bubble.

The Liberal White 'Racist Thinking' is that Black people are Inferior, and therefore MUST be considered Children. Who cannot be held responsible for their failure's, and do not expect any success's. They NEED Assistance from their 'Superior's'. AKA 'White Man's Burden'.

That is a straw man argument. And for context, I speak as a 51-year-old white male liberal, who's lived his entire life in South Africa.

Stating that those who believe that Black People can't 'Make it' on their own, as other Races have, are themselves Racist, is a 'straw man' argument. Why?

Looks like I hit the 'nail on the head'.

Because "white liberals" don't think that.

Treating a Black People with less responsibility for their wrongful acts, than White/Asian person's. IE: "You have to understand".

Never heard a White Liberal say that about a White Hillbilly, with a third grade education, spitting chewing tobacco, and his mother and sister are the same person, committing a bad act, or saying something racist. While you hear this phrase continually, regarding some Black University Professor, or other Black Professional.

It is called: 'Bigotry of Low Expectations'.

What bit of "white people are treated with less responsibility for their wrongful acts than black people" are you not understanding, Clyde?

We've all explained it in so many different ways. It's almost as if you don't want to understand.

The RSPCA often ask for a police presence if they have to seize an animal due to neglect. If this accident was a once off and the cat has a good home then fair enough. I just think they are remiss letting it out on the window sill.

Question is how is it getting on the sill?

Its a cat.

You have to know that before you condemn the owners.

Agreed. You could just end up making things worse.

For someone who complains about others "SHOUTING" you certainly have double standards of your own there CLYDE (BTW, highlighting is totally different to SHOUTING, if you can realise that that is).

Your posts are full of SHOUTS, not to mention SHOUTING your own NAME to start with, and you still bounce around all over the place, right, left, up or down, just as it suits you to get an argument out of others (as most of us reckon).

I'd really feel pretty sad for you CLYDE except for the fact that almost everytime that you post all I can see in my mind are pictures of either Sheriff Buford T. Justice or Sheriff J.W. Pepper talking your talk.

How you expect anyone to take you seriously at all is totally beyond me, but then again I'm probably to centered in all my ways to understand your bouncing personality at all (except that you do it for your own entertainment I take it?).

Though you really should re-read a lot of your posts because if you didn't realise it already you just come across to a lot of us as many types of "-ists" (the subject depends on the type of "-ist" that you display).

So really the only thing that you "hit on the head" is yourself, but thank you for letting us know how you think anyway and for keeping us entertained with your boring comedy. ;-)

Cheers.

Have a read of the comments below the report .....

Salmond

Why would anyone read any comments after a news article? Apart from the fact that its where a lot of idiots with access to a keyboard go to hang out, any serious vested interest in the issue will actually pay people to go and post negative/positive comments there.

ALL 'games' are rigged against some group, who eventually succeed.

Whites are, Blacks are, Asians are, Women are, Men are, Muslim's are, Catholic's are...

Anyone making the above statement is...

Don't have to answer the question. We know the answer.

Note: It really doesn't matter if the person is making these statements regarding his/her OWN Group. We all understand (To Use ONE Example), that Anti-Semites REALLY believes that ALL members if his/her group are Anti-Semites. Only they will not admit it.

This Evil is in the heart of the accuser.

The game is not rigged against white men. I am not sure what world you think you are living in if you don't understand this.

Oh come on. Never said it wasn't.

All I am saying is that Black People have the same Intelligence, Drive, and Ambition as any other group.

Obviously, you don't agree.

Obviously you don't understand what "obviously" means.

I am still bewildered that Cameron agreed to this.

Maybe you are. In my view Scotland were always entitled to vote upon their own future. My personal view is that it would be a mistake to go it alone, but they must make that decision for themselves.

I'm out of the country 5 years and the place quite literally falls apart.

It was always going to do start doing that that whether you stayed or went. I would judge you are well out of it. If I could afford to move where you are I could be well tempted :-)

By the way does anyone here have any Scottish connections to declare.

I shall be eligible for a Scottish passport should devolution go ahead and will apply for it.
