What thrill do people get out of trolling? Is it just the attention, or something more?

I do not agree that I’m trolling at all. A select number on the forum are dead set on getting personal every time. Particularly with a serious topic like this.

Seems like the would-be trolls on here are just dying to be ‘funny’, but without the prerequisite command of language or the imagination to create an original or amusing character for themselves. And then it doesn’t help their plight that in return they get nothing but earnest responses to their shit routines trying to convince them to become better citizens.

on a separate note…



glad to see the tea bois joining in the show of solidarity on social media, would be pretty awkward if their entire offering was a direct product of british colonialism

(would be even MORE awkward if there had been multiple investigations into labour conditions and treatment of ethnic workers at british tea plantations over recent years too)

just imagine!

So anyway, not one has admitted their white privilege. There’s no trolling going on I’m simply asking you to recognise the issue to help over come racism.

What could possibly be more emblematic of white privilege than a message board for middle-aged men to tell each other how nice they look in jeans

The thread should have been used to unite people instead they attack the author with their judgement enforcing white privilege with zero compassion for fellow human beings. Essex boy, swede, rural, crackajack, sodom, figurine, pops , etc where’s the love? All trapped in ego.

How do you equate this with what you said two years ago X?

Unless you’ve changed, which is laudable.
If you’re admitting your mistakes and past racist tendencies you might get some sympathy.

I don’t know if you were trolling then, now or both?

You can’t start a thread like this, get caught out for past comments and then whitewash your past views mate.

I’ve said racist things in the past masquerading as banter, but I didn’t realise I was being offensive. Ignorance isn’t an excuse. I learnt from my mistakes and don’t say things anymore, joking or not.

I don’t think I’m racist.
My parents are though and their views rubbed off on me. You are a product of your nurturing and I had to unlearn all that bullshit.
I still hear it when I see them. Now I pull them on it and its a source of resentment.

A few people have said it will take time, generations probably.

If you have racist people around you it inevitably rubs off on you.
If you’re changing for the better more power to you.

Your views two years ago were wrong. If you’ve changed, that’s cool mate. But ignoring past comments while being holier than tho here looks a bit disingenuous.

this applies to white people in general. If your not telling your "black friends" about your racist white friends, you are complicit. Thos been the case since 1492.

Do you call out your black supremecist friends, or are you a black supremecist? Kinda sounds like it. Might surprise you I had very little fucking privelege in my white life. A lot less than a lot of my asian, indian, sri lankan and whatever friends growing up. Thing is race mattered like 1% where I grew up. 99% of privilege was related to family situation, health, looks, sporting ability and other things. Some of the coolest fucking kids were Vietnamese at my school in early '90s, some where white, if we had any black kids at my school they woulda been treated like gods coz all kids loved was Jordan, Spike Lee and Wu Tang. A Jap kid came out on exchange, he was god coz of Asian heroes like Jackie Chan and all that cool fucking Japanese animation. He had mad gear we'd never seen neither.

I don't know about your life, your privilege or not or where you grew up. I've lived in the USA and seen the differences in where white people generally live and where Black people live but seems to be mostly by choice.

So yeah I also knew some racist fucks growing up too but I had very few friends. I still no some but I need all the friends I can get. I put up with their shit coz if I didn't I wouldn't have no friends at all. It doesn't make me responsible for the history of the fucking world. I was born in 1978 and never did shit to anyone black. Fuck you if you think I should feel guilty for being fucking white. I'm a 47 year old casual worker with no job security who still rents and can't afford a car despite a university education (I'm still paying that off too, only $30K more to go). My Dad is doing his best to spend every cent of his money before he dies appears. He thinks I'm just lazy even though I work extra shifts weekends and nights.

Guess I shoulda played my "white card" or ticked that box on that permanent job application that said "Are you from a white background?" Damn, I coulda had it all! Hahahahaha

Fuck you man.

black Americans who are not around white people, which is about 90% of us, don't think about white people at all. How else do you think we're able to influence the world with culture, music, fashion, Christianity, etc? Because we are in our own world uninterrupted, unless it's due to white supremacy

We peeped game about white people 400 years ago, we honestly don't fuck with white people like that but white people fuck with us. If we gave a shit about white people or what they think, none of us would be posting on this forum right now, it wouldn't exist.
