I cant believe I havent gotten wind of this thread until now
Seems its true, the porko forums are where it @
Tazz (and no this aint one of our famous "disagreements") that was only on platini
well thats the only thing that has stamped itself in my memeroy bank hehe
Plainly I choked when i read both yours and red Eagles assumptions on SLB, and if anyone systematically 'defamed' me like that id never speak to them again regardless. You both flat out made derogoratory assumptions he was both a biggot and a rascist furthermore you were practically taunting him throughout your post bro
, Im not saying I wholeheartedly agree or disagree with any particular view but come now they wouldve cut damn deep.
I wanna raise one particular point you made in your post, the point abt being able to walk down the street and not chuckle at the towel on the Indian or the little white boy bla blah blah only then can we say no rascism. Curiosity grabbed me then. Can anybody look at another colour human- being,or a tall, ugly, short, fat,or skinny and not see it? I think not. I mean my dad remarried a mauruitian lady a few years back and i have 2 lovely step sisters in my life now, they are black, they are family, but can i say I look at my stepmum and dont see a beautiful black woman? Of course not Does that make me rascist? they see me as a hot greeko
does that make them rascist? I see a person and say wow shes fat, or wow shhes gorgeous, or phuck thats a tall one, just as I see a german shephard dog, or pit bull, or doberman or or or. I dont believe theres a problem, in fact I think its impossible for a human to look at another human and not take note of physical features, be they color, hair, physique etc etc. I mean dont we today perhaps strive for perfect ideologies that are just simply unattainable? Theres nothing wrong with identifying another person b/c of physical features, theres something wrong when you have a hatred or lack of respect for a person b/c of their color or whatever. Respect all, b/c we are one.
SLB i hope like dae mentioned you only have a problem with those particular asians who caused your angst. To persecute the whole race, that is rascism.
You guys want stories on rascism ask any of us ethnic aussies in the oceania forum what its like b/c I CAN GUARANTEE, just abt all of us have experienced it, some more some less. I copped similar sh!t when playing cricket for my local club, so i gave it up and focused on tennis but the grass wasnt greener on the other side of the pasture oh hell no it wasnt it
Guys, namely Pila and Dae, let me get one thing straight, IYO's is it rascist for asians to mingle with their own, greeks same etc etc when migrating to a new country? If thats the case then in the 70's when the huge greek migration came to australia most of the 400,000 greeks were rascist b/c they chose to settle in more or less the same neighbourhoods. The Vietnamese are doing it now, the italians did it in the 50's......I reckon thats a bit harsh, sure I concede that theres bound to be hints of rascism here and there but I believe its more a comfort thing. They did it and do it simply to cope with the rascism they faced and face.
You know what greeks and italians get called here? phuckin greasy wogs. when i was 6 i was walking along the footpath when an old Australian man stopped me and said "In this country we walk and drive on the opposite side to your damn country" I was born in this country
Would you believe to this day when im walking down the path and someone is coming towards me I still think of that?
