Anyone else laughing at Justin Trudeau?
Jumps on the SJW bandwagon and is presently being hoisted on his own petard.
Mind you, I've no idea why dressing up as Aladdin is racist. As far as I'm aware it's still a staple of pantomimes far and wide.
I heard some spanner say it reinforced a cultural stereotype. What fucking culture? Arabs? Persians? Who the fuck thinks Aladdin is stereotype of Saudis and Iranians.
Why dont people understand what racism is anymore?
It happened 19 years ago ffs !

I get it that in this day and age certain things are unacceptable. Like Morris dancers blacking up which dates from the 17th century btw and was done as a disguise not a racist act. But you have to move with the times. You cannot turn back the clock however. We've all done things we wouldn't do now as the episode involving the vacuum cleaner and my old chap will testify.

The world's gone mad.

Racism should be defined as such only if someone is offended by it. 99.99 % of decent black people would find this pc campaign embarrassing.
Well you could spin it another way. White celebrity "blacks up" is viewed as a compliment to blacks.Because for that instance he wants to identify as a black person.

Or the huge popularity with drag queens who are viewed as good fun. Nobody is outraged and claiming their misogynistic. Because that would be silly and no offence is intended or sought and - get this - every one knows their not real...

But don't dress up in a grass skirt and a black face or a black uniform with a short mustache and jack boots,because...we are outraged ffs...how dare you pretend

The RNLI has been exposed and has been buying burkinis for Muslim women in Africa from the money raised in the UK.

That's ok then.


All for a good cause.

Vegan student says she’s “traumatized for life” after Greggs accidentally give her a pork sausage roll and demands a public apology.
Calm down love.
