But it begs the question if a black person had used the term in the same context (as many do) would it have been questioned?


Exactly. Like that stupid debate show afterwards, with George Galloway on it (??) , who said the term will be referred to by everyone as 'the n word', but the first black guy to speak said it! Of course he didn't say it in a racist way and it was a completely different context.... but wasn't that the case when the girl said it? But she was white. Seems if you're white you'll always be wrong when it comes to anything racial. They might as well just ban the word, thats the way this seems to be going.

I can see why C4 reacted that way after what happened before, but they never chucked out that jade and them others who WERE being racists. Theyve just gone the complete other way now and over reacted.

She is pretty stupid, I dont like her, do feel sorry for her though because her reputations been ruined on a national scale.
I dunno why I'm watching it either! Theyre all idiots, like that girl crying and throwing a strop because she didn't get to use the hair straighteners first - what.the.fuck.
The whole program pisses me off, but I have nothing else to do tonight and my mum watches it so I'm gonna have to put up with it all weekend nooooo :lol: :eyes:

Gah, it's annoying, people are too easily offended. Jesus christ, all it is is a Latin for the word "Black". And if they want to ban the word they'd have to ban a lot of latin text including the Carmina Burana manuscripts!

Soon you won't be able to describe people as being black either.

From what I gather the girl in question has heard too much gangsta rap and was tying a bit of homie-speak. So very stupid but not as horrendous as has been made out.

Damn straight.


Oh, with the BB thing: Which one got thrown out? And black/coloured doesn't fly anymore either, it's 'Afro-Carribean' or some bollocks...from now on, all us whiteys must be referred to as 'Euro-Caucasian'.

Cats! I hate it when cats catch birds! One of ours bought this poor blackbird in the house and upstairs this evening! Total uproar while I was trying to cook tea! Anyway I managed to save it and it was still able to fly so I hope it is OK!

Just to make you feel better... it'll probably die of shock later, they nearly always do. :lol:

Our cat is pathetic and hasn't managed to catch anything for years, but when it used to do it I couldn't help but feel all warm and fuzzy because of the whole 'gift' aspect of it all. Sure, it's not very pleasant when they bring some twitching half-dead creature into your kitchen, but they're doing it because they love you!

in the past ive used both those and the Iceland HD too.

The smaller the store the less deliverys they have (they are kept to a strict limit) so they are faster from the store to your home.

my advise - find the smallest store and your delivery should arrive in better condition, Smaller stores take more care with stuff like that as they cant afford to lose customers the way larger stores can.

:eyes: (i actually work for 2 of the 4 stores mentioned 1 verysmall 1 bigish) :eyes:
