No.

Dimwitted dickheads like those on there are just incredibly paranoid and sensitive to any word, term or phrase they associate with anything that isn't white or Western and assume it's expressing some sort of prejudice. Like thinking it's racist to say Islam is shit because their tiny minds are only capable of connecting Islam with brown people.

I have loads of black mates - mainly in the south - all professional and successful people.

If I uttered the word banana republic to them and then said sheepishly, "sorry I think that was a racist term"

I think I would lose them as friends. They'd probably say - do you think we have a predilection for bananas like?

Those daft cunts otr clearly do not mix with normal people in the real world. Just locked in some ideology on the internet. Sad cunts.

The term Banana Republic is not fucking racist.  

Christ why do people not have the capacity to think any more.

 :meltdown:

From wiki: In political science, the term banana republic describes a politically unstable country with an economy dependent upon the exportation of a limited-resource product, such as bananas or minerals.

You have to start with the premise that Old Red Nose is not the sharpest knife in the box. After that it all makes some sort of sense.

Rutters also how many people did they wish dead on there. I remember numerous posters on fmttm saying thankfully most of them will have died by the the next referendum. If that's not a hate crime then what is ?

Never even go on there now, they are not left wing in terms of having any meaningful idea of what socialism means, they are just a bunch of stupid over sensitive cunts falling over themselves to be the most right on, or were the last time I looked.

At least on here we have a range of political stances and can have a discussion, until it turns into threats of rolling around the cross car park or nonce accusations.

Hopeful Steve's axe wielding will allow a good level of spiky debate without the above, you can still feel free to call me a camel shagger by the way

Frankly, this and many other things just show the world has gone fucking mad. When such phrases are used there is no intent to cause offence ONLY if you are looking to find offence. These do gooders do harm by creating a situation out of nothing.

We have largely become so guarded about what you say - the do gooders have largely won - and will continue to do so. Depressing what our lives have become.

I am certain many are not "do-gooders".  They are intent on creating division and discord.

Don’t Go down the road of insults steve,  shame things turned out the way they did for some off here.  I think public warnings and suspensions might have sufficed but it’s your board your choice. This board is always at its best when everyone’s at each other.

I'm done with warnings and suspensions. Certain people proved they just don't work. I'm glad I did what I did.

Also, you should see the abusive shit I got this week from certain people. My new nickname for RR is very mild compared to that but they're so thin skinned over there, I have the phone in my hand and am expecting Crybaby Central to make contact any moment to unleash their latest blubfest.
