So I watched the show mentioned in the first article and the other two are media reports about the show. It was very interesting especially a part where they put people in a room with offensive phrases such as little paki friend and the Prophet is a paedophile and they had to list them in order they are offended by them. What was said by Ron Atkinson about Marcel Desially all those years ago tended to be the top pick.

Anyway who agrees it's gone too far? What Ron Atkinson said was offensive and wrong and I don't like when people drop a C bomb but the occasion F bomb never hurt anyone. It depends I suppose on how well you know the person. But the show had stories of universities for fancy dress banning wearing the Sombrero as it's offensive to Mexicans or dressing as Pocohontis (sp) which is stupid. I don't see the fuss about 'blacking up' either if it's to pay respect and want to look like one of your heros. As long as it's not done in a pisstake way.

I'm not offended by the amount of celebrities that clearly have done stuff to make themselves whiter during their careers. For different reasons the likes of Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Beyonce etc were much darker in their early careers. But if someone was to dress as Hitler or Jimmy Savile i'd be like what the fuck!!!

I don't think it was the F bomb that was the offensive paert He called him "a fucking lazy think n****r".

Just like racist monkey chants at football games or when Barnes had a banana thrown at him.

Political correctness has gone mad in some respect's everyone has the right to be offended and everyone has the right to free speech but it doesn't mean you have the right to say what you want especially in the UK  "exceptions including threatening, abusive or insulting words or behavior intending or likely to cause harrasment alarm or distress or cause a breach of the peace (which has been used to prohibit racist speech targeted at individuals), sending any article which is indecent or grossly offensive with an intent to cause distress or anxiety (which has been used to prohibit speech of a racist or anti-religious nature), incitemant, incitement to racial hatred, incitement to religious hatred, incitement to terrorism including encouragement of terrorism and dissemination of terrorist publications, glorifying terrorism, collection or possession of a document or record containing information likely to be of use to a terrorist, treason including advocating for the abolition of the monarchy (which cannot be successfully prosecuted) or compassing or imagining the death of the monarch" - From Wiki's Freedom of expression in the UK page

But people thinking they have the right to not be offended is fucking stupid.
Y'know what?....It's really fucking hot here in Africa. Who knew?....Well me, I have been doing this for almost 5 years
