    This thread is completly pointless. Something as deeply rooted as someone's view on racial relations cannot be changed through anomyous post at a security site. This is just going to lead to animosity between people were there was none before. Drop the thread and move on.

    <cold light of day> You're probably right, I was taking it too seriously. </cold light of day>

    However, just because I don't publically object to racial slurs (or other slurs) doesn't mean I approve of them.

    I don't see why I should have to publically make a song and dance about non PC comments, especially when I don't even know what PC is.

    BTW, my favourite insult for people (all races, genders etc.) is 'spanner'.... I wonder what that says about me.

    This is my last comment on the matter, I'll take advice. Thread dropped I'm moving on.

    Well you can take heart in that you are the only one to post something interesting. I hoped this thread would bring about an something worth reading and thinking about. Yet all it has gotten is petty gripes about my grammer and spelling. Cest la vie....
