Ok first off it was an OT post like about a quarter of the posts on the portuguese forum are and I did tell Marco, Dan and Razor to deltete the post if they thought right. Marco closed the thread and I had no qualms with that. I was also not the one who asked for the re-opening of the post.
To Redeagle. I'm killing the integrity of the forum. How, exactly? To the next thing, 'someone as intelligent as SLB couldn't distinguish between what is interesting and what is clearly mundane.' Well RedE you do not know me at all, for all you know I could be a complete no hoper who knows nothing, but then again I could be a top student at oxford. So you don't know how intelligent I am and posting this post has absolutely nothing to do with intelligence.
For the record I don't agree with the article that blacks were responsible for the downfall of Portugal, I mean according to the article Im black anyway. But yes, I did find the article interesting. As for using it for propaganda. For what exactly, what the hell is going to use this on xtratime where 2/300 people at max are going to read this achieve for me, a platform for world domination
To Pila, 'it is racist in this politically correct world and the other.' Pila Im not sure what type of history you got taught but to discriminate against blacks up to until about 60/70 years ago was pefectly normal. Take America until the Jim crow laws were intorduced where blacks became seperate but equal, blacks were treated as second class citizens. When the jim crow laws were introduced not much actually changed but it was a first step.
As for comparing racism to child molestars.....please...give me a break!!!!
Racism varies depending on your point of view, but extreme racism is essentially a right wing political ideology. Some people would say me saying "I hate spain" would be racist whilst others not. Recently a British soldier got thrown out of the army because he had a tatoo of the British flag on his arm....which was racist.
My point was about political correctness. If anything exists, in England anyway IMO it is racism towards whites. Political corectness is shown perfectly in the article. Changing what the encyclopedia said because it said 'black.' Would it have done the same if it had said white, No I don't think so. Recently here in England in Oldham a group of young asians assaulted a white war veteran. The British National Party ( a nationalistic political party, not racist but then again they are nationalistic so probably racist!) went on to GMTV (the top morning program in the UK) for an interview. As I speak there is a demonstartion outside GMTV's studios because it is racist to have someone from a nationalist party on television. Political correctness gone mad. Still in relation with this attack I was watching an interview where the local asian minister from Oldham was talking about the attack. The interviewer asks doesn't he think that it is wrong that asian youths can do this, the minister responds 'yes, but they have nothing else to do' Great nothing to do lets beat up war veterans
If a white minister had said this I guarentee you that he would not have had a job by now.
