    So, all folks from the Philippines are now a race? What race is that, exactly?

    They are an ethnicity. It still counts.

    When I make an observation about people from Texas, or hillbillies, or rednecks, it's no more "racist" than what the OP did.

    People really need to get over themselves. Either that or take some drugs for the paranoia

    Your opinion has been noted, and has all of the standing that any other opinion has. Which is...not very much.

    Maybe you are speaking about yourself and your feelings, but you are skirting the rules of civility (as usual), and trying to get a nasty dig in upstairs...

    Oh, my. The horror.

    However, I think it is fair to note that your views on race aren't particularly enlightened, based on your history on this forum. I would frankly be shocked if this was an isolated incident.

    He sounds a lot like me, Catz...I make comments about race or gender all the time. Why do I get a pass?

    i have two mates from new zealand, they both have bad handwriting, and they're both from new zealand.

    oh ****, i'm racist
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God
