You mean I laughed at Stooo for using it all the time, due to him fitting the description himself?

It was mildly amusing that the 'everything is racist' mob took to using it as insult, and tied themselves in knots trying to prove it had nothing to do with skin colour..

I've been a minority before and survived it btw. :thumbsup:

Don't let your opinion of someone derail you. I know you have some issues with her/him but the point is there & it's valid.


I'd prefer it if you didn't make incorrect assumptions thanks.

I'm an Irish woman, a long time here, and I have less experience of the things she claims to in her 'young years'. Its bullshit and its unhelpful to genuine cases of discrimination.


I guess people keep any interaction with you to a bare minimum. The sight of you wandering down the street glaring at everyone, or asking for four lots of ID to verify who they are probably means they think you're batshit crazy and avoid you anyway. :roll:

About PC

Are people aware that many people from outside EU and some EU countries still use the word black/white when referring to people from other countries? They are not being offensive but it's just that the country they live in, come from is not as PC and when asked about this, they confirm they are not being rude/etc but just grouping people together and the same people often refer to oriental people as Chinese ie people from China, Taiwan, Nepal, Japan, Vietnam/etc. I speak four languages relatively fluently and there are a lot of other things that we in the UK will not see as PC in the English language but acceptable in the three other languages I speak apart from English.

I would say the opposite, and that the Irish and the English get along very well. Lot's of English enjoy the 'craic' with them, and St Paddy's Day seems a far bigger affair here than St Georges day.

People tend to use other people's nationalities as a prefix anyway (good and bad) as an identifier, ie 'You know, that Dutch guy' - so if you're Irish and living outside of Ireland, you will probably hear yourself being referred as that 'Irish..whatever', but I wouldn't say it was necessarily discriminatory or offensive though. When I've lived abroad, I was always referred to as an English something or the other, but I never took it as people meaning it in a prejudiced way.


The EU issues in relation to the 'backstop' have seen things flare up a bit. Arlene ain't budging, and it's having a knock-on effect. It'll settle. :thumbsup:

You're off topic, but one little slip should be OK. Hmmm, it would seem that trying to point out that it's dangerous to share too much about personal information online with strangers, has put me up there on par with Eva Braun. Yet every advice online board voices the same warnings. But I'm the baddie, I'll live :thumbsup:

How will I go about that?

Should I black up like Al Jolson and become a wheelchair-bound homosexual?

I did not like the tone of your question so no matter what I posted there would have been some doubt in your mind.
