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

« Go Back

Just to keep some perspective here - NO ONE has come on and related any tales of how their grandad and his mates once ran down a nigger in a pickup truck and then lynched him from a fucking banyan tree for the crime of smiling at some white cunt. It's all been about some doddery old fruits making retarded comments.

You can claim that it was understandable for the grannies to be racist because they didn't know any better. They were told that their race was the most superior and that other races were morally decadent, and a threat, and had that attitude reinforced by fear and ignorance for their entire lives.

So what is your excuse?? If you are so damned enlightened now and claim to know better, why are you still supporting the regime that keeps struggling third world economies in economic bondage?

The cocoa in your chocolate IS produced by slave children. The coltan in your mobile phone IS mined by slave children. The palm oil in so many of your products IS grown by removing tribal peoples from their lands at gun point.
Make changes to your habits now, or die a racist that your grandkids will mock and despise

*edit* Right. That's that lot told.

No. Jokes make me laugh. It must be something about the nature of them.
I'd get outraged if no one was making a mockery of racism. If we treat it like a Sombre Horrible Thing then we are still giving it power over us. If we take the piss, mock and sneer -then WE have the power over it.
There's a flaw or two there.

but I don't even know what coltan is, how can I make sure it's Fairtrade or whatever? The people require information before making informed decisions - not saying it's your job, but you can't blame Everyman Joe for supporting a slave trade he's not even aware exists.

I think you're misunderstanding what the term "racist" means.
Buying "unethical" products isn't racism. I'm sure hardly anyone is aware if it's little black or white children doing the mining.

I find it hard to take someone seriously when they are complaining about the origin of the innards of a mobile phone, when they probably use one themselves, and the very computer they are writing on has no doubt many dubiously sourced metals inside it.

I should think it's very hard to even survive in a modern world without unwittingly committing an ethical offense!

You really do know how to make a valid argument, don't you!

For what it’s worth, their campaign would have been taken much better if they’d had a coherent message. As it is, most are a bunch of crusties with banners complaining about anything involving money, be it related to capitalism or not, without seeing the irony and certainly without understanding how economies work. Where do they think the money’s coming from to cover the story, police the site and arrange for their eviction?

Unfortunately having little understanding of a subject certainly doesn’t stop people from having a very vocal opinion about it. As you proved in your initial post.

your failure to independantly research even the basic fundamentals of what the #Occupy movement
is so desperately trying to tell everyone makes the veins in my eyeballs bulge with contempt.

Occupy has no coherent message
It has access to the same media outlets as any other protest group. It remained tight lipped for as long as it could because the more lucid members knew full well that it couldn't put out a simple mission statement. It is the People's Front of Judea writ large for the 21st century. When the London group did finally put out a list of requests/demands, it was straight out the big book of centralised economies and given that I'm supposed to be part of the "99% (I'm certainly not in the 1%) it had me running for the hills rather than manning the barricades.

Pretending that there is any great pattern to protests across the planet is also pretty shaky. The "indignants" in Spain want their employment law loosened to give them a slight chance of getting a permenant job before death. This is totally at odds with the resistance to proposed employment laws here.

Like pretty much every protest movement in the last fifteen years, it is a self congratulatory circle jerk that allows those protesting to feel better about themselves whilst never once putting them at risk of having to show the courage of their convictions.

You think now that camping out in New york City in a blizzard - in a tent - is not showing the courage of one's convictions?

They are not going anywhere. They will be here next year and they will be bigger.
When your mind wakes up from your 20th century need for a lineal 'storyline' and you will see that the complex dialogue surrounding #Occupy does not fit into neat 5 minute news bite,
I'd strongly suggest you DO SOME RESEARCH here. Knowledge is power.

I seem to recall that people sat outside Greenham common for decades...
...and sure enough nuclear disarmament was achieved. Oh wait.

When the poll tax riots actually succeeded in changing something, you'll note that the mission statement was "return to the old system." The two million residents of Manilla who protested against Marcos rigging their election didn't tack a list of sub demands on the side (they did at least wait for Aquino to assume power first). You can ignore the lessons of history all you like. You can pretend they don't apply. There has been no significant alteration in the way that a message is delivered with any success. That delivery is currently totally beyond the occupy movement. You won't change the 5 minute (more realistically, 90 second) newsbite. You either work with it or fail.

Consider this. The tea party are a bunch of dislikable hardliners. They did however go from nascent protest to political power brokers in about the same time the occupy movement has sat in snowy contemplation. The message is simple, the reinforcement effective and the results clear (if not ideal). Occupy would benefit from learning how they did it.

I'd say that the Tea Party has something of an advantage,
in that it represents the feelings of a significant percentage of members of an existing political party, and they have the support of significant sections of their country's media.

More excuses, no solutions
That bloke Obama, the one currently President of the United States. His 2008 campaign was financed to a huge extent by grassroots donations. If we accept that the movement is too packed with fiscal illiterates to attract large single donors and supporters, why not try that route?

Could it be that- once again- with no easy to explain aims and objectives, no solutions and (when it boils down to it) no actual consensus even within the protestors themselves, there is nothing to campaign with?

So where is this "information?"
The Beeb has a story about how the Church supports a transaction tax (we'll leave the irony in that for now) with a vague link to the protests but otherwise nothing. Nothing on the front page of the Guardian. The New Statesman, which has been fairly uncritical so far- even sending Rik from the Young Ones impersonator Laurie Penny to "cover" the movement, is asking if the occupy movement actually has a fucking point.

I'm sure the blogosphere is alight. The converted have never been so well preached to. Everyone else, not so much.

Give one clear argument that the protestors are putting forward, and with their solution. Just one. One that can stand to a bit of critisism. One that's not half-baked and wouldn't be circumvented by the city within half an hour.

wtf? I'm not doing your research for you.
You're gonna have to read a webpage on your own, like a big boy, at some point.

I don't like the choices you gave me, far too narrow and restricted, but as they came out of your mind, I'm not terribly surprised at their limited scope.

I choose daiquiri, instead. I think we can all be happy with that.

If I give you your clear argument, will you go away and suck down the business end of a shotgun for me?

-Do NOT put your money in a big bank. Instead bank locally using a building society, credit union or community bank. Encourage all your relatives and friends to do the same. Get them to encourage all THEIR friends and relatives to do the same.

It really isn't terribly difficult to stand up and demand change.
(, Wed 2 Nov 2011, 0:04, closed)
Oh, that'll work.
I wonder where all the banks and building societies came from originally... Oh yes, from the very same principle.

Are you suggesting we legislate small local banks so that they can never combine for the sake of efficiency, thus giving poorer returns than the bigger banks? It's like buying Fairtrade chocolate. You'll never compete financially, only ethically. And when it comes to money most people drop their ethics faster than you type responses without thinking.

I'd give your idea a few years before these "friendly" and idealistic banks either get bought out by a bigger bank or went under. And you only need look to history for that. Or don't you learn from history?

Edit: Thinking on your idea, maybe we could use it to stop all crime in the world as well. You stop committing crimes, tell you family and friends to do the same, and they tell their friends and family...

It's not about economic efficiency anymore, you muppet.
When 9 times out of 10, that 'efficiency' is at the cost of some poor soul having his/her job shipped off to India.

WHO is benefiting from those fabulous fucking 'bigger returns', then? Not the newly unemployed, not their families and not their community or their country.

The majority of the people ARE waking up to this fact, just because you're one of the slower ones doesn't mean you should be so snappy. It's impolite and I WILL GET OFFENDED, YOU CUCK SUCKING CONT.

And do you really think that spreading empathy and love in families, instead of poverty and disenfranchisement, may help lower the crime rate? Then you are a fucking communist hippy scum who smokes crack.
(, Wed 2 Nov 2011, 7:33, closed)
Wow! I certainly touched a nerve.
Good idea to answer with unfounded insults and ill-conceived ideas. Makes you look like you really know what you're talking about.

Why do you think people put their money into a bank? Safety? Ease of access from anywhere in the country? A return on their investment? These are the benefits for the people investing, and the more efficient the bank is, the better these factors *could* be. Or are you going to argue against efficiency of any sort, as you only equate it to job losses? Now that's slow thinking.

I like your statement about the majority of people waking up to the facts you mention. It's just like any other "fact" people make up on the spot to prove a point. What are you, a spotty 16 year-old with no experience in the real world, spouting idealistic claptrap? I think you're the one that should look outside and wake up to reality.

There will always be people around with years of financial experience because we use money on this planet, you numpty. Are you putting them ALL in the same bucket?

I didn't get a bigger yacht. I feel cheated.
So we put the world economy in the hands of people that aren't experts?

Is that why the OccupyWallSt group's arguments are so unrealistic and, well, lacking in expertise?

Would you entrust your life savings to Alan Sugar or the crusties outside St Pauls? I think we both know who'd make you money and who'd not. And at the end of day, we're both talking about money. Ethics aside, everyone still wants their slice of the pie.

I can't argue against your feelings that there is unfairness in the world, and that there are thieving gits who will screw whole economies just to make a quick buck. I just don't think anyone's put forward a more *sustainable* model for a world economy. There will always be someone out there that will take advantage. What we need are more laws to restrict them. I don't think we need a system based on ethics - some people just don't have them.

I've done my research. Unfortunately The Occupy website doesn't actually give a clear message. Their arbitrary 1% and conspiracy theories seem to be quite prominent, but unbiased, well thought-out and balanced views do not.

There's lots of talk about "them" and "the people", with loads of unsubstantiated "facts" thrown about. All with a good dose of American patriotism so cover any cracks in their arguments.

There may have been a message in there somewhere, but the multitude of activists with an axe to grind have jumped in to bask in the media attention.

In fact, it raises more questions than it answers.
What does he mean by 'nob'? That I am a member of the nobility?
Or does he in fact mean 'knob'? That I am a male generative organ?

Both of these assertions are entirely problematic.

That's not racism.
It's called CAPITALISM.
And it doesn't give a fuck about what race/creed/age group is subjugated for profit.
In fact, it could be argued that you're being racist by projecting your discriminatory belief system onto it.
Although I believe that you're probably not.

How on earth is calling a black person a "nigger" or white person a "white cunt" only apparently offensive.

Who the fuck are you to decide this? Wake up and stop trying to be clever and put yourself in the real world for once.

I suggest you go and field test your theory by going into any area of London with a large black or Asian ethnic community and shout nigger. Then come back to me after you explain that they are being passive victims.

If you read what I actually wrote
I said that NO ONE was coming on here saying that.
NO ONE does go into ethnic areas and make racist slurs.

I also said that mean words are not racism.

Getting pissy and flouncing because some nasty sod said some mean words and I CHOSE to get offended and my feelings all did a big hurty is entirely subverting what REAL racism is.

And that is fucking pathetic.

that we can call you whatever we like and it will only be offensive if you so choose? I think that is what you just intimated but I wanted to make sure.

"I remember walking down the street in Streatham about 8 years old holding my dads hand and someone with real hatred screaming at me that I am a nigger and my dad is a nigger lover.

Being in an Essex primary school and little fuckers calling me wog, nigger, blackie, chanting there ain't no black in the union jack so send those niggers back and thinking it was funny and that I should laugh with them."

I have been verbally and physically abused because of the color of my skin by people using words like nigger and following up with violence. You need to get out more and understand the world is far more complex and layered than what you with your pseudo socialist fucked up blinkered view realises.

You're wasting your breath with the Gritty Fluffer.
It's like reasoning with a plant.

The fact the in the eyes of the law, racism (or racial abuse) is the offence taken by the victim, not the intent of the perpetrator. Open to mis-use, for sure, but it does mean it's pointless arguing "Nigger" isn't offensive.

just asking is all, don't want any trouble, we've all had a drink etc etc
Are you saying that you are better than the rest of us, or that you are as bad as all of us? You're initial rant states the things we use in everyday life and how by using them, it makes us just as racist etc as older generations. If, somehow you are claiming to be better than the rest of us, you're a hypocrite as my lame attempt at fact finding states here from wikipedia: Coltan is used primarily for the production of tantalum capacitors, used in many electronic devices. Many sources mention coltan's importance in the production of cell phones, but this is an over-simplification, as tantalum capacitors are used in almost every kind of electronic device. Like computers, which you would've used to write your thing about what we're all doing to the planet. If, however you're saying that we're all 'racist' and including yourself in the 'all', then i guess that makes it a bit better. To sum up, is it a statement about us as apposed to you or us including you?

Just trying to clear this up.
