and now Kipling gets the Rhodes treatment.

Widdow 11 does seem to have a full sense of his own worth and consequently has become very tedious.
I am now going to use the ignore function regarding this poster, the only other poster I have on ignore is bounce banana, an equally tedious character but more due to his inane ramblings than being supercilious.
Tragic.
 
At no point did I tell you what you could find offensive, What I put forward was my interpretation - you didn't agree -
News flash just because I disagree with your interpretation doesn't mean im telling you what you can be offended at - merely offering another perspective - its a discussion forum after all.

Your interpretation is yours I disagree that doesn't make yours right or mine right you also then went onto to pretty much brand anyone disagreeing with you racist.
I challenged that after which you pretty much said oy whitey only black opinions matter

I personally feel that regardless of colour creed and gender you should be able to have a valid input on whats offensive - I also believe offence is a subjective matter so no one can be told what is and isn't offensive at the same time just because I find something offensive doesn't mean you shouldn't be allowed to say it (Ethnic / other slurs aside).

Discussion of whether somethings truly offensive or intended to harm isn't the same as telling an individual what they can and cant be offended it - Its how a reasonable society sets the standard between offensive unpleasant behaviour and something you just dont like. The shrill cry of "you are telling me what I can be offended at" it is simply a weapon used to stifle debate by branding any one not in agreement the applicable ist or phobic.
But as with all your ilk* you expect every one to conform to your ideology

You want white people to stamp out racism - but at the same time tell them they cant identify it

Make your ******* mind up you sanctimonious Prick either My opinions are valid so I should challenge it or ive no idea what it is and my opinion is irrelevant in which case I shouldn't speak out because I dont know if my opinion is correct


Edit *Ideology not colour lest that remark be misinterpreted (and in fairness it would be easy to do so given the subject at hand)
You ok hun?
 
Are you saying someone's view on what is or isn't racist is only relevant if they're not white ?
No I’m saying that it depends on who the offense is aimed at.

You don’t get to choose what black people find offensive. I don’t get to choose what white people find offensive. Men don’t get to choose what women find offensive.
 
Then the battle has already been won and you have absolutely no need to tsunami this thread with your accusatory posts. I can't help feeling that for a 'serving officer' you seem to have an awful lot of spare time on your hands.
You will notice it’s a certain times of the day. Can’t have phones in the enclave - so spot a pattern.

I’m not accusing anyone. Just pointing out racists are racists.
 
That's the stupidest thing I've read all week.

Just because someone's view isn't 'relevant' to you, it doesn't mean it isn't relevant at all, just that you're unwilling to ascribe any relevance to it.

Which is, at best, shortsighted.
No - it means it’s not relevant.

I’m no legal expert but I’m pretty sure the law doesn’t excuse racism because a perpetrator didn’t think it was offensive.
 
I would say no - after all you are mocking some feckwit who is trying to be black as a fashion statement*

I would also say the entomology of the word concerns me - im not sure its acceptable - Widow11 is better ( Genuine opinion not piss taking) placed to say If Wigger does also imply (to black folk hearing it) the user has a negative opinion of them as well.

*When you need some born and inbred** englishmans Jamaican girlfriend to translate all the gangster bollox hes coming out with into a coherent sentence mocking is the least he deserves

**Bristolian
I wouldn’t be offended by it at all - nor would I be offended by the so called ‘cultural appropriation’.

I can’t speak for everyone though.
 
Careful. Latrodectus could be offended at the incitement implicit in your post.
Say, hypothetically, half his troop (or whatever he allegedly commands) bang their papers in.
CoC will get wind, mutter something along the lines of 'rottenness in Denmark' and invite said Cdr in for a chat.
What's his answer going to be?
Extrapolating from his comments so far, it wouldn't surprise me if he responded 'it's because they're all racist and can't stand me'.
How, then, will today's fluffy (officially if not necessarily in reality) CoC react?
Sadly I’m a bit beyond platoon command stage.

If you are an actual officer, are you making it your business to go after everyone in your regt/corps/etc in person who you believe to be racist and having every issue properly addressed for the good of Queen and Country? Or......are you just sticking with being an anonymous mouthpiece trying to wind up others and likely whiter than an albino that hasn’t seen daylight in decades?

If I felt the racism was serious enough at work I would certainly address it.
