    RamNut reacted to Needlesh in Professional Photographer Recommendations   
    We podded out for a photographer. Over-priced. Annoying ducker who thought the day was all about him getting the right photo's rather than us getting married and detracted from, rather than added to the day. The photo's are slick, professional and nicely presented, and I've had them out once in 20 years.
    Take my tip...don't ducking bother.

    I don’t think Craig ramage is a racist either.
    He didn’t express himself very clearly or cleverly, but the reason that he began to generalise is ultimately because both young full backs had been dropped, and both made errors. They aren’t being sacked for their mistakes. Personally I don’t think anyone on radio Derby should have been sacked either. A simply apology would surely have sufficed.

    RamNut reacted to BucksRam in Max Lowe Racial Stereotyping   
    Lurked on this thread for nearly 40 pages without commenting.  Why?  Because in today's society almost anything you say on race, religion, sex, disability or any number of things can be miss-construed or judged. We all have views and opinions based on our own race, colour, creed, upbringing, age or social class   It's a precipice. I  hadn't commented as I was worried about being judged. How mad is that really?
    Was CR right in saying what he did? No. Was he being consciously racist? IMO no.  What he said however, WAS wrong as it created an unconscious bias and race stereotype.  I was accused of being a racist 2 years ago at a Twickenham RFU bar by a black girl, just for challenging the cost of drinks on the basis of "are you saying black people can't add up". Utter madness (we were overcharged but she refused to apologise).  My mate had a similar experience politely asking a woman to turn her phone off speaker in Nandos as it was full volume for ages and was affecting his family's meal time.  The manager was scared to ask!  She accused him of being a racist. Another school teacher mate is currently suspended undergoing safeguarding checks because he's twice had crying students in his office asking for support but had his door unknowingly closed.  A female teacher has done similar but nothing's been said about that.  He's now borderline depression as a result with the view that regardless he will give up the job he loves because of how he's been viewed. He feels he's being badged a groomer / paedophile.
    Where am I going with this? No idea really.  Racism, sexism and most other -isms are a real thing and are very serious but there is still a long way to go yet to get rid of the huge grey area between society's perceptions of an innocent situation (my 3 examples), ignorance through something innocently said or done which does rightly cause offence (where CR falls into I think) and genuine racist or sexist comments aka monkey chants etc. which need to be dealt with as strongly as possible. 
    Sorry for the long piece. Said my bit now.  Let's just focus on the football, getting behind our great club and team regardless of their colour, nationality or sexual orientation. They pull on that shirt, they're a Ram, that's all there is to it.

    That’s awful.
    its very difficult for us to even comprehend. When I think that as a kid, the war and the liberation of the camps was only twenty years previous. It’s mind blowing.
    I often wondered.....
    How could neighbouring villages stand by and allow these camps to be created in their midst.
    How could soldiers in the camps obey their orders.
    How could the commandants live on site in their plush houses with their wives and kids and not go mental.
    How could architects bring themselves to design the camps and fret over the elevations and the design.
    How could engineers design and install the furnaces.
    How could the German people allow all this to happen in their name.
    How sick and twisted can people be?  it almost is beyond belief.  
    the people who survived have lived with tremendous dignity. The struggle to survive, and the horror, seems to have suppressed rage and anger and desire for retribution. They must have been tormented and riddled with survivors guilt. 
    i couldn’t visit the relics of these camps. It’s just too horrific.

    I think it’s important to put some perspective on this.
    I am a black man in my 40’s growing up in the 70’s suffering horrendous, unimaginable racist abuse, not only from people in my majorly white British community but also from parents and school teachers.
    Whilst what he has said cannot be condoned, it’s a racist comment by definition of the very words he chooses to use. If he says the two full backs or just the young lads etc then it’s just a comment that everyone can debate and either agree or disagree.
    Is he a racist ?, no not for a minute do I believe that at all, I have lived through racism, it’s defined me as a person through no fault of my own.  I never asked to be abused, never asked to be singled out when walking into a room where only I looked different from anybody else.
    He’s made a mistake, he has received his punishment for what is a lack of judgement and poor use of words. Racists hate, they cannot praise, they cannot admire and most importantly they cannot hide it, if he was this way we would have seen this way before now.
    When John Terry behaved the way he did with Anton Ferdinand lots of people who knew him all said football knows what Terry is, this will not happen here because Ramage isn’t that person.  
     
    Because of my colour my opinion matters no more than anyone else’s no matter what colour you are but please let’s not crucify the man for just poor use of words. 
     
    All Derby aren’t we !

    No point,I can cause much more suffering and for a much longer time.

    I’ve researched it more the older I get and in amongst the records of 21 of my family members at the Holocaust museum was this which it says is a train pass for one of my relatives who was 10 at the time from a work camp at Bialystok to Aushwitz where they were executed.
