I have black friends that tell me black jokes, we all laugh about it, because we all know it's a joke, that doesn't mean I am a racist. If I were, then I wouldn't have black friends right?

Superb entertainment as ever.

It's "disappeared", by the way.

Carry on.

5) what's wrong with the head shake thingy if it is part of their culture? and why do you seems like making fun of it?

6) rather than just complaining and maybe insulting people or abusing others on the road or at trafic lights, have you ever though of doing something constructive like e-mailing the RTA about your concerns or trying to organize a civilized campaign for that purpose?

Spot on. Bison, that post makes you come across like a stereotypical pig ignorant and narrow-minded expat. Maybe one day in the future you'll realise that it's not big, not clever and rather like bullying it makes you a look and feel like a total arsehole....just a thought.

LH,

Surely you're not suggesting that Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis and Sri Lankans all look alike.........?

Smile Re: The Day The Skyscraper Dissapeared

I love a good joke based on, often racist or sexist, stereotypes personally...don't care which race. If it makes you laugh it was funny and at the end of the day it's only a joke.

No one should be afraid to laugh at cultural differences or similarities. We are all just people, often surprisingly similar.
