Borja - haven't you learnt yet that you're not really much smarter than me ?


So you're admitting that I am?

I have plenty of mates who are Aboriginal, Tongan, Samoan and Kiwi. Like said above, I joke around with a few and its alright with them. There are also about 7 Tongans in my footy team, 2 Aboriginals, 2 Samoans, 1 Kiwi, 1 Lebanese and about 7 white fellas. The Tongans and Samoans have a go at eachother a bit, and the Lebanese pay out the Kiwi, visa versa. Its all good between them but as said above, when people who don't know eachother say it, then its no good since you aren't gonna take shit from them.

I also don't understand how races could pay out their own race with these racist names lol. They would say it to their own race but won't take it from other races.

Back on the topic


I've had to deal with a fair bit of Racism over my schooling years, and i can say it doesnt feel great. Its a thing that i think will never be erraticated. and the thing is there is really no reason to racially abuse someone, i doubt half the people that have abused me couldnt even locate Croatia on a map.

and i think the question was asked earlier about why it isnt racist if a white person is called a white **** or something, i think that its not racist because of what has happened in the past

I think most people here would have copped some racism at some time. It's quite sad that an Australian would cop racism in Australia, but we're the minority at my school Smile western suburbs ftw

Nah I dont find that racist, just a figure of speech.




Like I said before about how I was bullied for my nationality, if I went back to those wankers and said something about Australia like "the good thing about France is that there are no bogans", my balls would be hanging off some power lines. (NOTE: I would never say anything bad about Australia, that was a hypothetical sentence)

I wouldn't find that racist.

The only thing I consider racist because it's no longer true in a contemporary sense is calling Australians convicts.

What has that got to do with race? Australian convicts were Anglo-Saxon and this insult comes from... the English? Who are? Anglo-Saxon?

All this discussion about what constitutes racism boils down to one thing:

The intention of the person who is making the comment.

If they mean something in a racist way, even if nobody takes offence, they are racist.
If they are joking, and people are offended, then they may need to be a little more tactful and sensitive, but they are not racist.

I also think people ought to be clear in terms: Getting paid out for being French or Croatian isn't racism, because France and Croatia aren't races. I am not trying to diminish this issue, or pretend that real hurt is not caused, but it is a separate thing (and one I am sure people would be more than happy to discuss in a different thread Smile ).

If not racist then just offensive.

Most Australians these days have nothing to do with the Anglo-Saxon origins. To call us convicts in an attempt to link us to those origins is not something I would appreciate.

I'd punch the guys lights out whether he was joking or not. If he was joking that's probably worse.

Maybe it's just because I don't like being called what I know I'm not. Which would explain why I brush off the hypocrite comments I get regularly...

Offensive, yes, racist no.

Though personally, I don't really have a problem with it. It is now so far removed from the truth that it carries no weight.

I could only see it as being offensive when someone calls you a convict and you actually had convict ancestors. If you didn't then it's simply inaccurate, and a bit silly. If you did, then as the great Enlightenment thinker Jean Jacques Rousseau said, you deserve not to be punished for the crimes of your kin.
