On such matters is it just me or is it noticeably trendy to urbanise adverts at the moment? Theres a pepsi ad for christmas on the radio constantly that seems to be a grime rap for the sake of doing grime, rather than actually being interesting or making much sense. Its just pure twaddle. Likewise with an advert for choccie biccies i happened to see the other day. Seems a risky strategy, there seems to only be a thin margin between pissing off your established customer base and being accused of cultural appropriation/raciss

I've started playing BLM Bingo, comedy on TV it's how many seconds a BAME mentions race/victimhood/anti white. How many BAME are in an advert, The BAME on any news presenting item.

Mind you it would be very funny if they made a biopic of Trump and had an Hispanic actor play him.

My mum (slightly right of Genghis Khan) is also sick of it but I keep repeating "go woke, go broke" but she doesn't quite grasp the concept.

For example, Warner Brothers didn't learn from their Batwoman fiasco that shamelessly shoe-horning LTB&Q into the story is not enough so now they've doubled down with a BAME caped crusader Rolling Eyes Hey guys, here's a thought: maybe good writing and good acting might make more money Wink

I was looking through clothes on Asos the other day and almost every picture had a black person in it. Maybe i'm just racist, but I like to be able to see what the clothes look like on someone who looks like me so I just went and shopped elsewhere. Trouble is most shops have done the same and it only seems to have ramped up since the BLM bullshit this year.

But he has white privilege and has unconscious bias so therefore a racist (I think I'm getting the hang of this)

I was wondering, if you were a white actor and made your living doing advertising jobs given its pretty clear ad companies are deliberately employing BAME actors at levels inversely proportional to the actual racial mix of society, could you have a case in the courts pleading discrimination against you?

No, because you can't discriminate against white people and being white the actor will be a racist in any case.

More damn filthy racism in football:

Edison Cavani tweeted the word 'negrito'. Of course BBC can't tell you that because it's so racist that they couldn't possibly publish it.

Apart from the fact that in Spanish speaking countries such as Uraguay where Cavani is from, it's basically an affectionate term that means 'mate'.

Just goes to show that in this country the vocal woke muppets go looking for racism where absolutely none exists, and take perverse pleasure in finding offence.



Aaaand it's a 3 match ban Laughing

Plus a special re-educational 'face-to-face' programme Laughing

And £100k fine Shocked


All happily accepted because a common Spanish phrase is now racist according to the powers that be.

Nice work libtards Thumbs Up

It seems over in the emerald isle the gards have shot a bloke who was waving a machete at them in a peaceful manner, after being misunderstood asaulting several people and the odd bit of burglary in dublin.

Many thoughts and prayers are being held for this virtous robber

I sawa a meme posted the other day of the queen accidentally beheading a black guy in a BLM t-shirt while knighting him and thought "That's a bit sketchy".,. Then someone pointed out it was Lewis Hamilton and therefore nothing to do with the coloyur of his skin.

My wife [who knows nothing about cars] "oh so he ran round the track or did the car help? I think there's some people in the pit team who aren't black or are we not allowed to say that 'cos it's racist?"

Again it’s not about race, it’s about class, but you can pick out a sub-group and pretend that race is the issue.

Here’s another recent story, although in fact it’s a rehash of a story from 2017. Photographic film is racist. (Are movies still “filmed” in these digital times?)

After seeing the good news that they are making a sequel to Coming to America, I was disheartened to find out that Eddie Murphy will be whiting up again to play the old Jewish bloke in the barbers which must be wrong, although he is very good at it.

I will of course refuse to laugh at the bits where he does this, although I may have to step outside for a moment occasionally.

A Nigerian consultant psychiatrist told me that in Nigeria there are very low rates of depression. Apparently if Nigerians feel unhappy they assume that it is because someone has cursed them so in order to fight back at the person they reject their depressive feelings.

Actually there are differences in the prevalence of different diagnosise in different racial groups. Black people are more likely to be diagnosed with psychosis and white people with mood disorders. Of course there's a lot of argument about why this is but I've never heard any good explanation.

Likely the Nigerians aren’t asked to complete leading tick box surveys which inevitably tell them they have experienced “micro aggressions” or have “PTSD.”

There's all sorts of things like that: women don't tend towards autism and you don't find many men with borderline personality disorder (or, more accurately, it displays very differently between men & women.)

The Nigerian thing is "happiness due to low expectation." Reminds me: Kraut did a video on Nogales on the US/Mexican border. Language, culture, race... the two halves of the town are nearly identical in all aspects bar their government and yet wildly different outcomes in health, income, crime, etc. Very interesting.

He goes on to pretty much blame the Spanish for everything which makes a change from pinning all the world's woes on white Anglo-Saxon protestants Wink

And it rightfully should be investigated and a proper report into the matter published But yet again, the headline is 'discrimination' on the basis of no evidence bar statistics.

In the context of this thread what's interesting is how racial groups exposed to similar level of actual racism experience different outcomes. For instance there's a big difference between Bangladeshis, Hindu Indian, Sihks and Pakistanis living in the UK but they likely experience the same racism, so as bad as racism is it clearly cannot be used to explain away all poor outcomes. The same thing can be seen comparing immigrant Africans from continental Africa and Afro-carribians. Mind though that it seems that the original generation of immigrants from the west indies were as positive as current continental Africans and I'm pretty sure encountered far more vicious racism than contemporary immigrants.

Im suspicious of the BPD stats for gender as I think the way BPD presents is different between the genders. It's more likely more women with BPD get assessed as their symptoms will likely bring them into contact with health services whereas mens BPD symptoms are more likely to get them in touch with criminal justice services.

There likely is a lot of discrimination in mental health on all sorts of grounds not just race. I've worked in psychiatric services for years and it's a mess and I can quite believe that your race would factor in any assessment made. The same true of class and gender though. I suspect class is a bigger factor though than any other.
