Ok, so rename the thread Racial Stereotyping Can Be Fun, post some comedy clips of ironic reverse-racism and let's all go and smoke some cheese.

In Heaven: the cooks are French,
the policemen are English,
the mechanics are German,
the lovers are Italian
and the bankers are Swiss.

In Hell: the cooks are English,

the mechanics are French,
the lovers are Swiss
and the bankers are Italian.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Well that's good. The defensive wording made for abit of a struggle in communication.

Fair enough, sorry about that.

Does this explain when Murikans are held in such high regard around the world? Tongue

The thing is, I agree with most American stereotypes.

RE: Am I being Racist?
I have long given up on discussing racism. It can be done when it is private between two people who know and respect each other and understand where each other is coming from. It simply cannot be done in public, because everyone and their brother will have different interpretations of every word used in the discussion.

So, for myself, I have declared it a non issue. If anyone else has declared it an issue for themselves, you have to fix it without me. I have nothing to contribute.

DLJ, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that was sarcasm.

We got a group for you, DLJ:

Is there such a thing as accentism, discrimination based on accent?

If there isn't, I just invented it, and I am being accentist towards people in that clip.
