    Thank you, no offence taken.

    So you don't like fat jokes, what else do you laugh at that someone in some far corner of the world may be offended by? Or don't you laugh at anything offensive? Squeaky clean.

It makes spotting and addressing genuine racism so much more difficult and people become scared to talk about the topic
    I think the vast majority of things on social media that appear to be racism are indeed racism.

    No doubt 90% of all 'possible racism' is racism and we do need to stamp it out where we see it but we're breeding a culture where if you're not showing to be fully anti-racist at all times you may seem racist, as per this example.

    Saying that, i've seen some of the facebook comments following that tragedy of the boat sinking and there really are some horrible racist ****s out there.
    that's something that happens a lot on here.

    Tell me a joke, and I'll tell you if I think it is funny.

    surely not wanting to appear racist is a good thing? I'm glad these days most people are aware they need to choose their words carefully when talking about sensitive subjects.

    We weren't going for funny or no funny originally, we were looking for what other than fat jokes offend you. You don't seem capable of answering.

    Sludge, I honestly thought that there was insifficient evidence to declare the guy guilty, the reason being that his hands cupped his chest whereas most people would move their hands under their armpits regarding primate-related gestures.

    It's not a question that is answerable really. It could be an extensive list that, on missing one item out, will see me tagged as some sort of *ist.

    Let's put it another way. There was an outcry this morning that someone was perceived to have been doing a racist gesture. Generally, the people who took offence were white football fans jumping to conclusions, and engaging the keyboard to prove they, themselves, are not racist. They were angry that this one man was making this one gesture that was offensive to a large group of people.

    Then, it turns out the gesture WASN'T offensive towards that large group of people at all. However, the gesture could still be construed to be offensive to a different large group of people, some of who may actually have fallen in the original group of people. The response to the gesture offending a different group of people was "Well, that's alright then, as long as it's not the wrong type of offensive gesture".

    I don't, particularly, take offence at fat jokes. If I am sat with my chubby girlfriend (her words) and a comedian makes some fat jokes, she is likely to get upset. Unless that comedian is fat, then she laughs. Strange how it works isn't it? None of it is exactly black and white. It is strange too how a gesture towards one group of people is passed off as "Well, that's alright then" by the same group of people who saw the same gesture, wrongly assumed it was towards a different group of people and were "find him, ban him, name him, shame him".

    By the way, I found the gesture immature and not funny the first time I saw it. I didn't jump to the conclusions that others have because, well, there was always the possibility it wasn't what it looked like. Now that I know the gesture's intentions, I still think it is immature and not funny.

    You’re correct. Based on the evidence of the first video, I concluded that the guy is a racist twat. However, it turns out he’s just a twat.

    Do you not see the difference between someone making racist monkey gestures towards a black person and someone making a “you're fat” gesture towards a professional athlete who is in the top 0.1% of the healthiest and fittest people in the country?
