Re: Oh my giddy aunt....

I saw that a few days ago, all I could think of was to gather those "offended" people up, take them to a coal mine, and have them tell the blackfaced coal miners that they're offensive, and see what happens, because it's just getting ridiculous how people are offended at historical things, what are we meant to do? Re-write history to pander to the waterheads? Roll_eyes

Re: Oh my giddy aunt....

There were moves a while back to change the name of a pub outside of Swansea. Thankfully that bit of stupidity died a death and it never happened - not as far as I know anyway.

Re: Oh my giddy aunt....

There needs to be some legal process involved with this onslaught of feigned "offence", such as taking into account the historical basis for the name, activity or process, the reasoning given by the "offended", and a record made of whether they're a serially "offended" effluent-stirrer, because a lot of these examples are baseless and are usually thought up by people who actively seek out things to be offended by to just stir up trouble and widen the fractures in this so-called "multi-cultural society"...

 

What a crock that phrase it, a multi-cultural society, so long as it's not our own culture of course... Roll_eyes

Wonder what that "committee" or whatever organization it is, would do if a 100% black person Morris Group, turned up to display their talents....

 

Probably get them to put flour on their faces to make them white...

But Morris dancing (of any colour) is offensive.

Re: Oh my giddy aunt....

I'm sure it's a case of pure jobsworth.

I'm also sure that there has been more than a few newspaper stories about people being offended. And when the actual group of Muslims, Jews, Blacks, Whites, etc were asked the answer was a straight no of course that doesn't bother us.

It only bothered some faceless committee who took it upon themselves to judge that this or that group would be / should be offended by something that no one has given a second thought to until now.
