Have you actually ever spoken to anyone of another race?

How about: A black man can call another black man a nigger. A white man can call another white man a honky. A black man can call a white man a honky. But...

Why?

And for the grown-ups, I hadn't seen the need to put below the cartoon: "Discuss. Or just smile inwardly."

And in a similar vein:

EU commissioners are due to debate proposals that would force quotas for women on corporate boards.

The debate comes after the European Parliament criticised the lack of female candidates for the European Central Bank (ECB).

A parliamentary committee - in a resolution passed by 21 votes to 12, with 13 absentions - called on the European Council to withdraw the candidacy of Luxembourg's Yves Mersch for the ECB executive board, saying his appointment would mean that the board would be all male up until 2018.


So, Yves, you can't have the job because of your gender. Unfair discrimination is WRONG. How simple can it be?

What an excellent explanation of racism because of course racism is basically unfairness to white people. Duh, how stupid are people that they can't see that? Segregation, Jim Crow, slavery, bananas being thrown at footballers, apartheid, sharply higher unemployment rate of black graduates, disparity of income etc etc. All because white people can't say just exactly what's on their mind due to political correctness gone mad. Why can't people see who the real victims are (hint: the pale males clinging to most of the money and power)?
