    Racism.

    Once again, it's the failure to understand the difference between structural and personal racism. You know what it's like to be personally bullied, you don't know what it's like to belong to a race which has almost universally been regarded and treated as inferior for the whole of history. You don't know what it's like to live in a world where every institution, and every situation you ever have to deal with, is based on assumptions about your intelligence, your criminality, your very humanity, because of the colour of your skin. If fat people from Derbyshire farms suffered the same history of slavery and thin supremacy you might have a point, but they don't, and it's frankly absurd to compare the two. The playing field for black people is so slanted against them, even now, that we have to take active steps to be aware of, and address that fact. So yes, being at the other end of the playing field does give you advantage, whether you realise it or not.

    Racism.

    It's the inevitable group dynamic which recurs every time someone challenges the prevailing view or identity of the group. No amount of reporting individual posts is going to change that, it requires an awareness and intent to actively counter it, which clearly isn't going to happen. As for the other part, guilty as charged. My opinion is that racism and other forms of discrimination are wrong, and I'm not going to dilute or compromise that view for the sake of fitting in. And yes, agreed, cake is very much being had and eaten in certain quarters.

    Pure speculation to justify your opinion/ agenda. From my perspective you have a very heavy bias/ slant on this forum towards particular viewpoints, and alternative views are ridiculed or shouted down. You do nothing to moderate this, probably because you don't even perceive it's happening. In fact, you're more likely to target individuals who 'cause friction' by speaking against it. It's a shame, because in many ways it's a varied and interesting forum, and I'm sure there are some great people on here, but for me it cannot be the community I hoped it would be while the situation I mention persists. I shall post in the predictions league, read about the football, and leave it at that.

    Ongoing Stuff

    So, sat at home, my dungeons and dragons group have left, we’ve drunk all the wine, and all I have left is about a quarter of a bottle of Ardbeg, some weird creme brûlée stuff from Marks and Sparks, which I got for Christmas, and the dregs of a 12 yr old bottle of Highland Park. For the record, I also have elderflower cordial and milk. I’ve listened to the early Sisters of Mercy 12 inches, a couple of The The albums, and now heading into late night Massive Attack territory. Am I alone? Does anyone else get to this point where they want to stay up all night listening to trip-hop and caning single malt?

    No, I really don't. This discussion is completely asinine. I'll leave you all to it.

    Racism.

    When racism is discussed as a topic, the views of people of colour are notable by their absence in the comments. Granted it's possible that there are 500 reading in silence, but it seems unlikely.

    Racism.

    In the sense that white people in this country are often blind to the presence of racism because they don't experience it first hand. It isn't racist to make that observation, and it's a well documented fact.

    Racism.

    The prevailing attitudes expressed every single time race or gender are mentioned. Plus I live in Derbyshire and I've been to Pride Park. Are you actually saying it isn't the case? Utterly depressing, isn't it.

    You can laugh, but this is the actual television I was watching the other night. A bloke in the pub made it.

    It's a forum full of white men. Anyone expressing non white men opinions is going to stand out. You're lucky I bother. On the contrary, we dismiss the prevalence of racism too easily.

    Are you actually serious? You're either wilfully ignorant or on the wind up. Banana throwing and monkey noises are aimed at black players to compare them to apes. If that doesn't concern you then you're complicit by association.

    Racism.

    The sort of person who isn't oblivious to the history of racism in football, and the prevalence of banana throwing to taunt black players. Of what 'persuasion' are you, to deny that there is a link? Disgusting post.

    Ken's is a great shop, sells everything, including a decent organic Tempranillo for £4.99. If you like Le Mistral, also try Mercia, where you can spend your accumulated wealth on eggs benedict and seadog gin in the middle of the afternoon. https://merciawirksworth.com/
