This is NOT racist, and it is not from Japan. It is Chinese. In Mandarin, "niga" is a space-filling word like "um" or "like."

Is it wrong that I am more offended by the fact that Ronald McDonald is portrayed by an Asian?

Probably missed the boat but....I personally believe that the answer is not to use the big ol' N-bomb less...but to use it more. I agree with previous posts in one way...i do not judge by peoples physical appearance. I judge by actions. If you live your life to be the best person you can possibly be..of whatever color, race, or religion. If you want better for your kids than what you have or grew up with. I will call you by whatever strikes your fancy. But if your biggest goal in life is to gloriously live up to the most vile and idiotic stereo types your specific group has ever been burdened with...then you are a N:gger. White guy with 14 kids living off welfare and bitching about how you can't get a job while you drink up the money that was supposed to buy your kids clothes? N:gger..Black guy rapping about slinging crack like it's the best job in the world? N:gger..Purple flubber monkey from f-ing Zorkon 6 who stuffs rocks up its balehole to get high? N:gger. That's my piece.

"I also disagree with your basic line of argument, namely that it's a good thing to identify and group people according to inaccurate and polarising decsriptions of their skin colour."

I definitely never said that it was a good thing.... but that is the way it is, so rather than ignore that that is the case (as you suggest..... don't acknowledge anyone by their skin color and thus ignore the oppression that results from this ignored skin color.... which must feel really great to have ignored if you're a person of color), so please don't try to put words in my mouth you wanker.... hopefully you understand that since you're British and not European.

Europe a Society


Not in any meaningful sense. You may as well claim the whole world is a society.

At the current rate, Europe might be forced into political unification within a century and be genuinely unified within a few centuries. It certainly isn't unified now. It isn't *a* society. Most of the people in it can't even talk with each other.

The results of you (and other Whites) pointing out that someone is wrong (factually or not) in naming oneself is the disempowerment of that person and that group of people.


So you should think I'm disempowering everyone equally.

Unsurprisingly, I disagree with your argument and the conclusion you draw from it.

I also disagree with your basic line of argument, namely that it's a good thing to identify and group people according to inaccurate and polarising decsriptions of their skin colour.

I am not my skin colour, let alone an inaccurate and polarising description of it. Anyone who thinks that can go drat themselves. I can't stop them doing it, but damned if I'm going to do it myself or anyone else.

So we disagree on a fundamental level and neither of us is going to change the other's mind.

Europe a Society, Britain subdivision of said society, which is further subdivided into more societies, people are divided into upper class lower class, regionally ffs you guys still care about the royal blood line is if that's not a crummy way to define a person what is, and you saying your British not European is as factually wrong as me saying I'm American not North American.

To sum it all up their are divisions among societies whether it be religion, race, wealth, political views, the solution to conflicts amongst divisions is not to erase these divisions, because you can't they naturally occur. The solution is to realize that these divisions make us different from one another, not necessarily superior.

Ranting about people who let themselves be categorized into "Races" as Racists will do more harm then good.

Angilion - You should read Eduardo Bonilla-Silva's "Racism Without Racists". It is written about the U.S., but I believe it generalizes elsewhere.

"By defining everyone by what you consider to be thier race and arguing strongly against anyone not doing so."

Have you not read any of my responses? One of my biggest points has been that it is each person's right to name their own ethnicity and for others to respect that choice. I've already said that I agree with you and that science has proven that there is no biological basis to racial divisions, but the reality is that there are very real socially determined divisions based on skin color. It is your choice, as a White person to acknowledge that or not, but by not acknowledging it, you are contributing to the maintanance of a racist society, the same thing that

Can you please explain how I am reinforcing racism and how exactly I am "requiring people to do so as well"?


By defining everyone by what you consider to be thier race and arguing strongly against anyone not doing so.

My point, or at least one of my points, is that racism is reinforced all of the time whether we talk about it or not. In recognizing racism and talking about what causes it we can begin to fix what maintains it.


Talking about racism and defining people by "race" aren't the same thing. Defining people by "race" is obviously a fundamental part of maintaining racism.

This thread has been informative. Before now, I've only encountered such passionate advocacy of defining people by "race" from hardcore racists.

But aside, from that you trying to say people shouldn't have a claim on what to call themselves was ridiculous


If I was trying to say that, I would have said it. I didn't.

People can call themselves what they like. I can point out when they're factually wrong in doing so and I can point out the results of doing so.

Stating my nationality is not factually wrong, so it's not the same thing. It also doesn't promote division within a society, so it's not the same thing in that way either.

The only thing offensive about this ad is that it has Ronlad McDonald in it in general ... that clown scares me.

Ughh yes and no a lot of the land like said before made through purchases etc. some of it unexplored all together, Oregon area Chicago, sometimes went to war to expand the borders not uncommon for a country and yes not all of USA is not USA's, while they've managed to reduce that amount to a minimal but ever heard of reservations?

But aside, from that you trying to say people shouldn't have a claim on what to call themselves was ridiculous If African-American suits you more than just being human then fine, how is that so much more degrading than distinguishing yourself as a brit rather than a European apparently what you see yourself as holds importance to you so, don't get high and mighty when people other people do the same.

OHHh ok. I figured it out Angilion's trolling tonight It's not ok to label people as races to embrace culture, skin color and blood lines, that would be inhumane. That's almost like defining people by their borders.


You're making a fool and a liar of yourself. If you really thought I was trolling, you wouldn't think you could find a line of argument in my posts - trolling doesn't have one. So you're contradicting yourself.

If you think you have a point, feel free to try again without contradicting yourself. It looks to me that you're arguing in favour of seperatism on the basis of skin colour, i.e. to have different countries for people of different skin colours (according to the stupidly inaccurate descriptions of skin colour that people like you favour).

People often make the argument that talking about racism is what causes racism;


Really? Where? I haven't seen anyone make that argument. Do you think I'm making that argument? What other people do you think are making that argument? Are you referring to Morgan Freeman's position?

If you want to reduce racism, *continually reinforcing* the divisions essential for racism is not a good way to go. You can make different forms of racism. You might, if you're lucky, maybe reverse the old forms as well given enough time. But you're not going to really reduce racism by reinforcing it all the time and requiring everyone else to do so as well.

If by own it you mean how they came here and just started claiming land to be theirs and making deeds, then by that same line of thought we never took the land we did the same thing. Sound about right?


Yes, the same thing - stealing it from the previous owners. So according to your own argument, the USA does not own the USA. That seems an odd position to take - who do you think does own the USA?

"I'm talking about a pointless and inaccurate seperation of humanity into two or at most a handful of groups solely for the purpose of creating opposing groups. Groups that don't really exist."

You're absolutely right that race is socially constructed and has no biological basis. Skin color essentially boils down to where one's ancestors lived - the farther from the equator, the lighter one's skin color.

Despite there being no biological base for racial divisions (and I think this is where we're disagreeing), in terms of privilege and oppression there remains a great deal of difference based on skin color.

People often make the argument that talking about racism is what causes racism; the reality is (and ask most any person of color) that racism exists whether we acknowledge it or not. Although it is more convenient for Whites (me included) for racism to stop coming up, the reason it does is that it continues to impact people on a daily basis.

<<you are what you want to be, you have no right to tell someone who they are..if they want to be black, thier black..thats not your decision


They can want to be Martians if they like - that wouldn't make them so. But I'd be less bothered by that because it wouldn't affect the society I live in. Their impassioned advocacy of racism does affect the society I live in, so I have every right to oppose it.>>

"Check again. In social and political terms, we're closer to the USA than Europe. We're being forced into a USE, but it's not really sticking yet.

Country never belonged to Britain, colonized a preoccupied land and over time settlers who felt oppressed by Britain's rule and not being fairly represented in the government led to the the American Revolution (British Civil war), afterward more land was acquired through war, contracts, purchases, and genocide. If by own it you mean how they came here and just started claiming land to be theirs and making deeds, then by that same line of thought we never took the land we did the same thing. Sound about right?

Stole a country from you? when was it ever Britain's country?


How can you be from the USA and be so ignorant of your own history?

You're also missing the point - my example was deliberately ridiculous. I thought that was obvious from the way I belaboured the point in a ridiculous way, but I obviously over-estimated the audience.

There are a lot of people here who are so devoted to completely defining people by inaccurate descriptions of skin colour that they're outraged by the idea of not doing so, so outraged that they can't think straight.
