It really beggars belief.
A DJ of 32 years loses his job over playing an eighty two year old song.
There is uproar because the song contains the word "niggers".
The Irish Times runs their headline "BBC DJ quits after playing song containing ‘N’ word" which is the height of hypocrisy. Either you know what "the N word" is, in which case you mentally substitute the word "nigger", or you don't in which case the headline is meaningless.
This political correctness has gone way beyond even farce. One has to tiptoe around the eggshells these days because someone might be offended. Who are these people that a mere word causes them so much grief? Are their sensitivities so fucking delicate that a mere utterance can cause their world to crash around their ears? I worked in the UK in the past and came in for quite a bit of the racial stuff. I completely ignored it. Even better, my ignoring it pissed off those who were trying to offend me. It really is that easy.
So, for any
nigger black wog darkie spade coon Person of Darker Skin Pigmentation out there who is so fucking offended by one fucking word in a [rather cheerful, happy] song that is nearly a hundred years old – grow a fucking pair and piss off.
And I would like to dedicate the following to David Lowe.
