YOU Said you didn't want to BE racist. I am offering a suggestion to HELP you.

I already do that. I'm not as racist as my original thread sounded. My response was to your first part "as if that's a huge accomplishment against racism".


If you find yourself defending your non-racism with over explanations to how NOT racist you actually are............ then you've said or done something racist in the first place.
we're only trying to help since you stated you'd like to NOT be seen as racist.

Don't want to have your comments raked over the coals? DOn't be or sound racist to start with. An ounce of prevention is a pound of cure where racism is concerned.

Comments like "my dad goes to mexico all the time and I actually go with him"
reads like "Hey look at me - I'm not racists I even go to Mexico and so does dad"
which --- IS a racist thing to say (in a thread on racism)

Don't leave others with the impression you are racists and trying to dig yourself out of that hole. Just.............





don't BE racist to start with.

all will be well - I promise. Thumbsup

When I want your opinion I'll read your entrails.

Which is the point a few of us on here may be angling at Smile

Yes I realize that.
Read the post by DLJ, THAT is what I'M trying to angle at. I just couldn't really explain it so I sound way more racist than I actually am...

Don't worry mate. It's all cool! We're all getting the script now methinks Big Grin ... I bet you think twice about your wording in future when you post on forums at daft o'clock in the morning though haha Smile

A man blames his bad childhood on leprechauns. He claims they don't exist, but yet still says without a doubt that they stole all his money and then killed his parents. That's why he became Leprechaun-Man

My original thread was way more harsh than I meant it to be because I want entirely awake when writing it. So all the other pages are me trying to correct myself but being able to effectively communicate it the way I mean.

meh. I've been down this road on the forum before.
People on this forum can't discuss racism type topics to save themselves.
Their panties instantly get wadded and all you get is fingers in ears and lalalalala.
People don't like topics that make them uncomfortable, particularly white people and racism type topics.

OK I see your point there. I just would like to say that was not my intention at all. Wow, I honestly didn't even think about that. Shit...

To be honest, the last thing I remember is browsing the forums... I don't remember posting this at all. But I did have a weird dream about reliving that incident and getting pissed off...

RE: Am I being Racist?
I once dreamt I'd gone to the toilet for a tinkle and instead of water in the bottom of the loo there was a numerical key pad. When I awoke the next day, it turns out I'd pissed all over my dad's phone! Hahaha ... Trust me, I wish I'd just said something controversial on a forum instead! Smile ... EVERYBODY makes mistakes hahaha
