Black snowflakes — 15 Comments

    • Aw diddums!  Poor ickle feelings were hurt?

      If this were some spotty teenager that's possibly, remotely understandable but a fucking security guard?

  1. threatening or abusive words or behaviour” – well it’s a damned shame that plod is more interested when it’s done by a has been footballer than when it’s our friend in Norfolk and some of the things he’s said about Anna Raccoon. Frankly the comments he’s aimed at a dying woman go well beyond threatening and abusive!

    • But Anna is not black. Nor is she LGBT. Nor is she Muslim. Nor is she an immigrant. Nor is she a right-on feminist.

      So abusing her is perfectly fine. She's under the radar of the ever vigilant SJWs.

  2. The black community has collectively taken offence at a tea towel with a golliwog printed on it

    If I were a black person who looked like that golliwog I’d be seeing my doctor (and tailor).

    ‘struth – if the majority of black people just want to get on with their lives and earn respect as decent human beings – just like the rest of us – then their spokespersons ain’t doing them any favours.

    • Some Irish people object to being portrayed as leprechauns. We've had some political kerfuffle here recently about something termed 'leprechaun economics'. Some people believe in the fairies.

  3. Lesson number one is that if you find yourself up in court for this bollocks, don’t plead guilty and throw yourself at the mercy of the system. Frankly, they both need to grow a pair.

  4. Seriously though the Guy turned up to do his job of providing security not to be publicly ridiculed and humiliated. I agree with the judge when he said

    The judge told Gascoigne: "Mr Rowe was clearly humiliated on stage, as part of an act.

    "As a society it is important that we challenge racially-aggravated behaviour in all its forms.

    "It is the creeping 'low-level' racism that society still needs to challenge.

    "A message needs to be sent that in the 21st century society that we live in, such action, such words will not be tolerated.

    "It is not acceptable to laugh words like this off as some form of joke."



    • Seriously though the bloke should have grown a pair and just ignored it.  It would have been forgotten about in minutes.

      I used to work in the UK and was never called by my name – I was always "Mick", "Paddy" or just plain "Irish".  On top of that were the jokes about coming from the bogs or only eating potatoes, where I was always on the receiving end.  No sweat.  I just ignored them as they weren't any kind of "threat" or "abuse".  Sometimes I laughed [if the joke was a good one] but generally I never reacted one way or another because it didn't bother me.

      • Likewise when I lived in Australia in the '70s. As a 'Pom' (or, more popularly, 'Pommie bastard'), I was given quite a hard time. For the most part not malicious at all, just banter, but most definitely what would be considered today as 'racist hate speech'. But if I'd taken offence and had a fit of the vapours (it was in fact water off a duck's back to me, and I gave as good as I got), I probably wouldn't have had any friends at all. In those days, the Aussies were a different breed to today. There was no virtue-signalling and mealy-mouthed liberalism then. They were rough and tough and valued their freedoms. And if they liked and respected you (even if you were a Pom), would do anything for you.

        What the fuck happened?

  5. This could set a very dangerous precedent and open up a massive can of worms. Hopefully it’s just a one-off completely fascicle incident.

    • "A message must be sent" is a clear indication of a desire to create a precedent.

      The danger lies in his statement that "such words will not be tolerated".  What words?  Who decides what is an "offensive" word?  

      It's the old story – offence can not be given; only taken.
