Wow...was expecting this Thread to turn racial any time...

And it didn't take long. :roll:

Racist ? Which part of that post is Racist ?


Strange...did I used the word "racist" ?
I suppose there is difference between "racial" and "racist".
The later can be defined with the use of derogatory words like "nigger", "gook", "chink".. etc. Opps! I guess I just accidentally pointed out where that "racist" post began. :wink:

No, that's not racist at all. Politically incorrect, definitely, but racist, no.

To be fair TMD said "racial". This is a term I have heard Kiwi's using when they mean a conversation is now centred around race but is not necessarily bigoted or "racist".
For example:

Aussie: I had a married woman last night; man she had resisted my advances but I'm a celebrity so I won her over!

Kiwi: Yeah I had a white girl and I grabbed her pussy.

Aussie: Did the white girl come from NZ?

Kiwi: That's a bit racial mate. She was your sister.

See - the conversation isn't racist per se (but obviously sexist and demeaning to women) but the tone switches to a racial bias away from the sexual bias. It's a complicated usage of a not commonly used word but one I would like to see in more common usage because it denotes that the topic of race/nationalism/heritage is noted but no actual accusation of bigotry is being made.... yet....

Some more examples;


1. On the farm

Aussie: those bloody wide comb shearers are back.

Kiwi: yeah mate we are - we can shear six sheep in the time it takes you to do one!

Aussie: I guess you're a bloody half maori as well and can't hold your piss?

Kiwi: that's a bit racial mate; I can drink you under the table any day.

2. In the pub

Aussie: How come this pub has got such good looking birds?

Kiwi: The publican has been hiring backpackers recently... these ones are from Sweden.

Aussie: Does that mean they have blond pubes?

Kiwi: I assume that the blinds match the curtains but it's all a bit racial for me mate.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

Hasnt Duerte said he will be impeached if he gives up the Philippines claims on whatever is their historical claim?

Is is any surprise that people might misread your comments, with English like that?

http://news.asiaone.com/news/asia/duterte-announces-separation-us-aligns-philippines-china

"I've realigned myself in your ideological flow and maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to (President Vladimir) Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world - China, Philippines and Russia. It's the only way," he added.

"With that, in this venue, your honours, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States," Duterte said to applause. "I have separated from them. So I will be dependent on you for all time. But do not worry. We will also help as you help us." China has pulled out all the stops to welcome Duterte, including a marching band complete with batton-twirling band master at his official welcoming ceremony outside the Great Hall of the People, which most leaders do not get.


Job Done :D

The Philippines version of Donald Trump has just totally screwed his country. In bed with the Chinese is worse than being in bed with a demon. You shall be f*cked, Duterte... the Chinese are far smarter than you.

Will be interesting to see what sort of benefits the Philippines will get out of this.

If Africa is anything to go by , almost all the infrastructure projects are done using Chinese labour and materials with very little benefit to local workers and industry.

A good way for China to get rid of its excess capacity , give/loan countries money to buy there own stuff. =D> =D>

Similar to Germanys loans in the EU ... =D> =D>

It's probably all moot; a qualmless shoot-from-the-hip gangster this antagonistic, with a checkered past and with so many enemies in the underworld and the political realm, frankly, I'd be surprised if he makes Christmas.
