The video was just for fun... get a life.
Teaches people that they have a right to commit violence if they are offended by what they perceive someone else's attitudes, beliefs and speech may be. That's what got Treyvon killed. And thank God Zimmerman survived him, otherwise he would have been killed. I still feel bad for the poor Zimmerman family, having put through what they went through as result of one ignorant thug's belief that a person's words and/or attitude justify whatever violence they feel like committing, only because they are offended.
And the OP deserves neg-rep and infraction for posting a blatantly racist thread, that attempts to justify "mob violence" because some people feel offended by what a white person said. It also promotes racism against people of color, because it's fundamental premise is that there are special standards for persons of color, and that they (for whatever reason) are unable to control their tendency towards violence when provoked by insult and disrespect.
I disagree, I don't believe OP posted a deliberate & blatant racist post, his intention was not to rile and get a racially-charged response.
Nige, i understand the premise you're talking about- as no colour should recieve special treatment, as that in itself breeds racism. However, for the purpose of the thread OP was expressing - if you act like a cunt on the football pitch, you will get treated like one - I don't believe a deeper cross-reference & examination is required.
This is why Hockey is the best damn sport on earth! If someone calls someone else a nigger they can just beat the sh!t out of each other.
Not all Hockey players are brutes. Just watch this video until about half way through when Georges Laraque wishes his future punchbag "Good Luck man."
Racism in 2013 is just another distraction method used by the government/Matt Cutts to slow down all this internet money we are making.
In other words, "Ain't nobody got time for that!"
Gee... some of you need to chill...
How are we gonna get rid of racism? Stop Talking about it - Morgan Freeman
Racism is done by an ignorant person, just puts him in the lowest level possible.
Score Balls, sorry....
How does this dumbass have 1306 in reputation?
Maybe you feel like kicking me in teh balls or something?
Aaaand you'd like a special set of rules that would allow you to get away with it, and maybe even get rid of the "stand your ground" law so that I couldn't defend myself?
I agree with your sentiment there Luka (certainly on the issue of ignorant people at lower level),
however, having observed some things in life, I notice a huge correlation between
Open Racism and Naked Sectarianism and had a few papers published on this issue.
Long story short, there is a strong correlation in the motivation behind sectarianism and racism,
and many many reasons why it exists.
However, one thing that we need to do in our lives, and prepare the next generation for a better society,
is to be ANTI-RACIST, rather than passively NON-racist etc...
and to be ANTI-SECTARIAN, rather than quietly saying that we are non-sectarian etc...
Such a positive re-inforcement serves to counter those ignorant people (who know nothing else sometimes)
and lays the framework for a more tolerant society, and a much brighter, better future for our children.
Please note, I am not getting into a huge political / philosphical discussion by saying who is right, and who is wrong etc;
(besides Morgan Freeman is one guy I really admire and generally trust his opinions on such matters)
but WE ALL as a civilised society need to recognise this as an issue, and BE PRO-ACTIVELY trying to stamp it out.
I have just noticed a potential fuelling of the racism fire above, and it is a pity to see this in BHW.
Sadly, I predict this thread will be deleted before much longer, which is a shame really, especially since the thread
was linking to a video about a very serious and touchy subject (all jokes aside),
and that a constructive debate COULD have ensued, without some members getting upset,
and as alpha males, then it is full chests out, and the macho talk begin.
Could we not please just chill a LOT, and have a friendly conversation?
Why so much hate and flaming?
PLEASE stop it, and then calm down, and talk about it rationally and resonably, like mature adults.
The belief that one can "stamp out" another person's thoughts, feelings and beliefs creates more negativity than what you started out with. A good bit of my identity has been formed as a result of other people attempting to "stamp-out" or otherwise control my mind. And I think it scares the preprogrammed drones, as the "texture" of this reasoning doesn't resemble anything that they've seen on TV, and they don't know what to do with it, besides stuffing it into whatever pigeon-hole that is most expeditious.
I'm on a constant search for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corner_case, and if the end result of my analysis appears ridiculous or offensive, that's not my fault. I just report what I see, what I think, and what I think it means.
Cool video and it is very true though maybe not exactly. The thing with racism is that it's gone way too far and it is hard to remove something that has been rooted into society. Especially when it's worldwide. Us human beings like to name things, whatever it would be, we name things as we see them. I may be very wrong but I believe that the best way to stop racism is to ignore it and treat it as vulgarism or bullying. When you treat things differently or with higher priorities you make these things stand out, and when things stand out, they are usually picked on.
You are equally entitled to your opinions, and I refuse to be drawn into any negative argument.....
hence I shall state for the record....(albeit flippantly)....
IMHO "It should not have been a corner kick"
Steve Moore is still in a wheelchair & Bertuzzi is still playing. No justice.
I am sensing that your butt is hurt in some way. That's okay, there are butt doctors.
BTW... most of the kicking was done by other turks only the last one was by the black guy. Mindblown.gif
where the fuck do people find the time to write a 3 page essay reply to a forum thread that...oh wait its just crazy ol nigel again.
