hmmm, let's see...

1.4 billion angry, screaming Chinksat your doorstep demanding their money back pronto!

KEV

We will point them northward so they can attack the racists.

Chink is NOT racist...it's like the term Yid, Kraut, or Wop, etc...

It's merely a "nickname" that refers to a specific ethnic group....not race.

There is ONLY "one" race on this planet.

The HUMAN race.

KEV

Ask a Chinese immigrant how they feel about the term.

Everyone in the USA seems to be offended by ethnic based humour.

This is not the case in the UK where I grew up

Benny Hill - Mr Chow Mein

Mimicking, and poking fun at ethnic stereotypes is probably the best British humour.

Here's another example:

The Two Ronnies - Insurance against becoming Jewish

Lighten up - will ya

KEV

Kev, here's a question for you. Would you use any of those terms in when you're not behind a computer screen? Would you call a Chinese person a 'chink'? Or an Italian, a 'wop'? Or a black male, a nig...?

Well that really is not the point, as Kev has pointed out this is stock standard British, Aussie, New Zealand humour, we have no sacred cows, nothing is sacrosanct. Politeness means that we may or may not use these terms face to face, but either way it is not about race per se.

Many Yanks just don't understand this with regard to British-Aussie/NZ humour.

Yes, we have NO sacred cows, Indie-Bums, Paki's or Coons.....that's just the way it is

Incidently we have a collection of nigger boy money boxes on display that does not mean we hate black people, they are just examples of Americana we have collected over the years.

Yes, my wife Krissoula has a large 1920's "Nigger Boy" collectable money box and a "Sweet Tassum Negros on the Porch" framed picture display in our sunroom with other stuff from that era of Americana.

and she is absolutely not a racist in any way shape or form.

KEV

I don't think it has anything to do with nationality. It has more to do with age and growing up in a time where white people could get away with racism.

It has nothing to do with race, you just don't get it because like most of your countrymen you have no sense of humour. It really is that simple. Ffs zombie boy thinks I am a racist because I have a small collection of Jolly Nigger Bank money boxes!

Calling another race names is not humour. As I already said, distasteful jokes are for shallow people, nothing more.

Calling someone a racist for having Black Americana is? I presume you are not a native Aussie, 99% of them have a great sense of humour.

How long have you lived in Australia? I have been here 15 years. I clearly know that Australians don't take racial slurs as jokes or sense of humour. Do the wrong thing at work or in public, there can be serious consequences.

Yeah right whatever, fifteen years and you haven't developed the Aussie humour, let me guess, Chinese, leb? not knownfor their fun loving ways.

Your friends and relatives must be proud to read your comments on this thread, Dennis.
The next time you insult a Chinese on the street, I hope the one who kicks your ass is not Korean or Japanese.

Highly doubtful that that could happen. What is much more likely is that the Chinese will spit on the street, will push arrogantly in front of you rather than wait two seconds, or my favourite, will slowly dawdle across the road in front of oncoming traffic. I haven't managed to hit one yet, but give it time.

If I were a bigot, I would think all 4,487,178 New Zealanders are idiotic racists like you.
Give it time, a racist will show, no matter how well they disguise it.

I no more represent New Zealand than you do Australia

Now what exactly in my comments did you misconstrue as being racist? It's ok it was a rhetorical Question. Answer nothing. You like many self professed experts confuse race with culture, as Kev has pointed out on more than one occasion there is only one race (No Robert not Master) and that is the human race. It is perfectly clear to anyone with half a brain, (do you fit that category? ) that some cultures just do not mix well with others, that isn't racist it is simply being a realist. Therefore it is of paramount importance that Governments around the world take note of this when formulating immigration policy. Much like the Aussies do with boat people.

This "There is only one race, the human race" excuse to wiggle out of racist comments is a bit old and stale. Whenever I see someone use that excuse, it tells me that are doing a bit of wiggling.

Really? Could you point to the comments in this thread you consider racist, and explain your reasoning.?

Your stereotyping to imply that all Chinese spit in the street is certainly racist. If you cannot see that, no use for me to try to enlightened the numb with more.

That's it? your best shot. Chinese people do spit in the street, frequenly in front of other pedestrians, not all Chinese, which I never claimed nor intimated, but many do. Clearly you have zero idea of what and what does not constitute rascism. Obviously little point in me trying to enlighten the dumb.

So do many Italians and Greeks, and ....

Answer my human race as the only race question , if you will.

Well it is the one race. The other things that get your knickers in such a knot are culture issues. Just like it is not the norm in my culture to spit in the street in front of others of the human race, perhaps you do, I neither know nor care particularly. So one race but many varied cultures some that can co exist with others and some that can't. Some that I am happy to have in my country and some not so. Are you begining to understand the difference between race and culture?

"People are dying to live in America"

I know the difference between race and culture and don't need your warped view. I'm asking about the word "race" and if you think it applies ONLY to the human race?

I accept standard definitions in language and that's the only way to effectively communicate. The dictionary define words for common use and understanding. The dictionary has more meanings for the word race than the human race.
