    Why would he specify they were white? Would the false accusation against the Scottsboro boys in the 1930s be considered a hate crime, or were they accused for political reasons too? How much of column a and column b can it be before it's considered hate or political?

    Society/Culture Political Correctness is the Scourge

    Funny story from today - I was giving a familiarisation lesson on a machine gun today and the oft-used description of how to hold the butt of the weapon is to grip it tight and do a "Chinese burn" to twist down on it and keep it stable. Being the PC warrior I am, I said "Twist down on it like...

    All the idiots who fake racially-motivated crimes are despicable. Smollett appears to be one of the worst though, because not only did he use his celebrity status as a vehicle for the charade, but if it's true that he did it to increase his profile and improve his income, it makes him total...

    Vic Melbourne's Sudanese gangs

    Of course, nothing makes me happier :) Be careful not to conflate free speech with what I just said above - they aren't the same. The site has rules, and the board has its own too. So people's freedom of speech is limited by the framework provided in those rules. My own views may bias how I...

    Vic Melbourne's Sudanese gangs

    If people report posts I have to view the thread to determine if any action is required. That answers about half the above questions. The remainder can be answered with a fairly straightforward statement: this is a forum and my job is to moderate, not dictate discussion. Shutting down speech...

    Wasn't trying to suggest it was - I could have made that clearer. Those two questions were independent of each other. I really don't actually. This topic doesn't interest me so I don't read it by choice. More people should take that approach when there's nothing fruitful coming from the...

    Patience, young Padawan. You will see many, many flags.

    What's your point? You don't like the thread? Noted. Stay out of it then. Perhaps its growth will slow.

    On a serious note, it was the club management that ruined it and Malthouse's appointment was a symptom rather than the disease. Also, I'd like Bolton more to Steven Pinker - a teacher at heart, he's just trying to get the best out of people and it's commendable. But there's question marks over...

    That would be true if we were still under the Malthouse Reign of Terror, or as I refer to it, the recession we had to have. He, like Peterson is to the left, is the best thing that could happen for our club. Made us sit up and realise we weren't going to get anywhere going down the same path we...

    AFLX Discussion

    We had fish and chips in honour of Fish and Cripps tonight. Also, I was too lazy to cook. But it worked out well.

    Sorry, I have to appear impartial. (Now back on topic dammit)

    Society/Culture Feminism - 2017 Thread - Pt II

    Its a small sample size but I've been blown away by the difference between my two kids. My girl is 3.5 and boy turned 1 at the start of the month. They were both big kids, both had a shitload of hair when born and almost everyone comments how they even looked the same as infants (they've since...
