Congratulations. You've got the attention you desired. Now let's hope you get the ban you deserve.
A ban for arguing against the continued usage of outmoded and offensive racial monikers. If a forum bans you for that, well, we know what kind of forum it would be.

I thought this forum was for English speakers in Switzerland, not just English speakers who "look English".

Re: Is the Mohrenkopf a racist piece of candy?

This thread started to remind me of that commercial

"When you're hungry you start acting like a diva!".... I hope it's not too sexist. Not only women can act like divas.

Have a Snickers, folk!





@Mods, could you kindly give this thread a rest, maybe?

Ok, after this post it's now clear that you are a troll on a wind-up. Busted.

I'm sorry you've had to suffer through this thread too.

I thought you said it was "people of colour"? Or are you making it up as you go along?
Black is not an insult. It describes black people. I was asking Chuff a very specific question given his proclivity for the word "coloured".

People of colour can describe people of many different races, but does of course include black people.

I don't think it is too hard to keep up with if you make the effort.

If you were truly interested in this topic, I'd agree with you but I find your posts disingenuous and trollish. I'd say you're much like Trump, but your English is far more sophisticated.

Edit: I think a more apt term to describe your posts would be gaslighting.

Edit 2:

Psychology Today lists these traits to definite gaslighting:

1. They tell blatant lies.
2. They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.
3. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.
4. They wear you down over time.
5. Their actions do not match their words.
6. They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you.
7. They know confusion weakens people.
8. They project.
9. They try to align people against you.
10. They tell you or others that you are crazy.
11. They tell you everyone else is a liar.

If I was interested in the topic, you would agree that racism is bad, but because you believe me to be a bad actor, racism is OK?

It's not gaslighting to suggest your argument might not make a whole heap of sense.

TBH if I was a mod I would have banned quite a few by now. Phew, thanks goodness I don't have to worry for making these types of mistakes.

... these uncivilized and uncultured ignorami just will not listen.
Nothing screams "ignoramus" quite as much as using "ignorami" as the plural of "ignoramus".



(... and I'm going to be charitable and assume that whoever uploaded this video to YouTube titled it with deep irony.)
