I agree people are free to use racially abusive terms (which is small fry compared to say beating someone, enslavement, binning their CV) if they want to. The vast majority who would prefer some decency are just as free to call them racist etc for doing so.

Use these terms if you want but don't get upset if you get challenged by others exercising their free speech.

I don’t believe anything on forums or social media. To understand a person you need to talk to them face to face.

It might make you or your mates laugh but would you feel comfortable walking into a room full of black people done up like Diane Abbott? Would you feel comfortable getting the 343 bus through Peckham by yourself on the way home? If not, why not.

We have a union. The saps that join it throw their money away. The union doesn't do shit. I went straight to my boss the other day and asked for a payrise and justified it, said what I'll deliver if she gave it to me. Done. Payrise given. I'm my own fucking union. Cool

Unions are just a scam to do weak lazy people out of their money.

Laughing out loud

unions are the reason you have paid annual leave, safe working conditions or pretty much any rights whatsoever at work

Blackface with no malice done as a joke like the guy at the darts is not racist at all. His motive is purely to highlight how silly Dianne Abbot was or blackface in Antoine Griezmann's case is done endearingly because he loves the Harlem Globetrotters. To answer your question - yeah I would be fine, I might have explain why I was in blackface but I think all the people would be ok with it - if not then that's their problem and they should check their own heads.

Have you ever done this to someone's face or just to girls you're stalking on Twitter?

I didn't stalk any girls on twitter. I've no criminal record and successfully argued why with the police out of court nearly a decade ago. I'm quite happy to talk about on here but its irrelevant unnecessary spiteful trolling on your behalf.

You didn't answer my question, have you ever called anyone a racial slur to their face? If not, why not seeing as it isn't offensive?

Are your questions not rhetorical? An insult is always offensive - dare you to find a person that hasn't said something untoward when provoked. I've not said anything racist in that context because that is NOT a joke situation. Have I said something to their face when its done as a joke yeah

I don't have paid annual leave, I'm a casual and get more per hour than the sap lazy full timers. I never get sick (touch wood), down a six pack a night to stay sane, eat spam and eggs to afford more toys. I work in an office which is pretty much safe already.
