    Moderator's Warning:
    Do you get nervous when you notice people in Muslim garb on your airplane? A certain amount of caution in discussing race and ethnicity would be prudent... especially when addressing the race/ethnicity of an actual DP poster. It is possible to get a hate speech infraction in the basement.

    You asked me this:


    I answered:


    You didn't reply to this question and ignored it.
    Then you come back later on with a reply to one of my posts.



    To which I reply with:


    And once again, you ignore this post.
    Until once again you refer to my ancestry.



    And that is how we arrive at our now current question of:


    Memory refreshed?
    You seem a wee bit obsessed with my race/ancestry.

    I Don't believe you ar Anglo Saxon , or possibly to coin a phrase based on verbiage you ARE familiar with - you may be just a little Wog. Okay. Nothing wrong with that. Britain is a pretty diverse society - but YOUR views on the Islamist's is based at least partially on your background.

    I'm talking about your comment, not his.

    Good Lord, getting you and Ned to follow the discussion on this thread is like trying to nail Jell-O to a wall ...

    I guess the take-away here is that all "people of color" think just exactly alike.


    Are you claiming the above is inaccurate. That the Reverend carried on as usual Right after 9/11. If so I missed it.

    Jesse Jackson has nothing at all to do with 9/11. What he did is totally, 100% ****ing meaningless.

    "Wog" is a racial slur for dark-skinned people.

    Nice, ain't it?

    I thought so, I just needed confirmation.

    Feeling a little bit racist are we Ned?
    Should I expect anything less from a Mormon?
