This is a question Racist grandparents

It Came From Planet Aylia says: "My husband's mad Auntie Joan accused the man seven doors down of stealing her milk as he was the first black neighbour she had. She doesn't even get her milk delivered." Tell us about casual racism from oldies.

Thanks to Brayn Dedd who suggested this too

My wife's colleague's Indian family lives in a village close to the border of Pakistan..
She told my wife about the tradition of the town elders from both sides of the border gathering at the fence and spending a good few hours each week hurling racial abuse at their neighbours.

They will then offer individual farewells to their adversaries, who they have previously greeted by name, and will then arrange a suitable date to continue their ritual abuse of eachothers countries.

I rather like the idea of that tradition.

Because you'd like to hurl racist abuse at people,

We'd all feel better for that.
There's a black woman sat behind me, right now, and I'm just itching to start screaming at her.

Reminds me a bit ..
.. of the French taunting in Monty Python and the Holy Grail (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9V7zbWNznbs).

I feel that some of the replies miss the point. I don't assume that you like the idea because you crave to yell insults at other people. Rather you like the idea because you adore the silliness of making civilised appointments with long time acquaintances to do such a thing, as if it were about having a cuppa tea and a biscuit.

If so, I absolutely agree.

Much better than shooting at each other, too.
