I would guess because this is more specific in direction and subject. The more specific you are, the further away from prejudice and racism you get.

Unfortunately Mr Fields didn't understand what prejudice is - it's when you form an opinion about someone (or thing) before meeting them (or understanding the specific facts of the case etc). Mr Fields was ultimately prejudiced, in his example.

And when did women get the vote here?
That's apples and oranges.

Switzerland undoubtedly is a conservative country (to this date) and I - Swiss female btw - am somewhat irritated if not ashamed of that fact sometimes. But women (and minorities) have certainly never been systematically oppressed in the often horrific ways that are normal in Saudi Arabia and quite a few other countries

I'd like to point out many Muslim countries gave the vote to women before Switzerland.

That being said... It is stupid to do what you think God wants when you can't communicate with said purported being.

Yes but we're discussing Saudi, not "Muslim countries"

calling the Saudis a race is just as stupid as calling the Dutch or the Americans a race, again despite what the typical Saudi will try to tell you while he is watching "foreigner" Muslims do his job for him.

Re: Stupid, stupid, Saudi men!

I have nothing more to do with Porsche1909. We met once at Odile's home, and he seems to have taken a great dislike to me. He used to be a drive by groaner until I put him on my ignore list, since then he has become more personal in his attacks.

If Porsche or anyone else wants to accuse me of being a racist, then go ahead, I really don't care for these people's stupid opinions. Go ahead, you can call me a racist - does that make you feel any better?

I once worked with a true racist. He was an Englishman, originally from Pakistan, and out of uniform he dressed entirely in milk chocolate brown colours. He had a Vauxhall car in a milk chocolate colour, and he used a fountain pen in milk chocolate brown colour. Now, how coloured prejudiced is that?

Sbrinz found a news story about the deaths of several pilgrims in a crush near Mecca. For reasons clear only to himself he tacked it on the end of this thread. He has since started a new thread.

Re: Stupid, stupid, Saudi men!

Maybe he just liked the colour.

Are you suggesting the Man from Del Monte is also racist, as he dresses entirely in white? Or Colonel Sanders perhaps?

#BBCtrending: The female football fan causing outrage in Saudi Arabia

When are these IDIOTS going to reach the 20th century?
Just for the record: you are drawing conclusions on Saudi men based on comments on youtube...
Not necessarily. "These men" could just as easily refer to the people commenting and not the whole country. That's a conclusion you made/inferred.

In my opinion, what you are writing is, to a certain extent part of the problem.


It is a pretty depressing thought when one realises that women in 7th Century in Saudi Arabia had more rights than women living in Saudi Arabia today.
Even more depressing when you realise that Mohammed was the first person (or one of the first) to actually give rights to women (inheritance, property, social and marriage rights).
