Well in 1968 at least, the Australian govt did finally recognise the Aboriginal people as humans!!!

(I think it was 68!)

at least we did that in 1968 and were big enough to admit our wrongs and say sorry in 2008. i don't think the British would do that - EVER. 'white societies' have a lot to learn about the issue and I don't think the British (and derivatives like U.S. and Aus) can preach on racism from moral high ground.

2008 - Just after you stopped interfering with the sheep!

How long has Australia been a commonwealth and capable of taking its own decisions? And how long did it take to change the law? Are you going to blame the poms for all Australias ills forever? When my grandfather and great-grandfather and thousands of others joined up to go to Gallipoli they did it of their own free will.

Get that chip off your shoulder.

Yo, please stop this, this thread is about Mandouche.
I am not sure I understand the subject of photo you posted.
You are intending for us to see the blonde lady with the odd shaped calves?

Did you recieve any comments on your Rolex in London?

Manouche, you are my hero.

You could manipulate me and become my king.

Dude, seriously. We get it.

But can we please go back to Manouche? At the very least, he is entertaining.

Yes, until that shit in the corner of our flag is removed (dangling a bigger bait to hookup a larger fish) .

Manouche, would you like to meet up in Paris at end of March and we can sit over coffee and talk about our London experiences over the winter holiday. You can buy the drinks, of course.

Manouche appears to be a cheeky British troll with some French writing fluency. I think he's describing an actual weekend he had, and writing it as a Frog, for laughs. Don't mind him, it's funny.

A beautiful post. But my French is non-existent, so I shouldn't sneer.

and while i agree that someone who makes racial slurs should be prepared to address/defend them, to say someone who makes these remarks is automatically a racist is wildly inaccurate. intent behind a word/statement holds far more importance than just the word itself. and there are many people who harbor racial prejudices who don't say anything that could be considered a racial slur, thinking this somehow doesnt qualify them as a racist.

Calling a spade a spade is not a racial term. It predates the use of the term spade in that sense. I do get your point though. Good skills on picking that out.

I do disagree with your statement that using racist terms doesnt make you a racist. But then again I also think that everyone is racist to some degree. The difference is to what magnitude they are racist and whether they recognize it and try to counteract it.

Yea it is. Problem is that people are forced to be PC even if the underlying sentiments are not. Guess thats the definition of PC though isnt it?

Remember Sydney 2005? Australia has its fair share of problems.

And its not only white societies. Asians are incredibly racist, and openly so.

Thats's good ....but, if you're suggesting the need to apologise for past issues etc. I think it's absolutely ridiculous! It happened, yes it was bad, but get over it for god's sake!

i know its not. the quote of mine that you called out was explaining exactly that fact. again, to clarify, i was just making a joke based on the multiple meanings of the word spade. your second statement i've already addressed, and i do agree about everyone being racist to some degree.

sorry, i feel like im part of the reason this thread is getting derailed. so, to move away from this racism discussion, manouche how were you able to remove the pussy scratches to your rolex so that they were unnoticeable to the untrained eye?

I know it was a joke, and I thought it was a good on. Thats what I meant to say when I said good skills. Sorry if it came out differently.
