The hotspots look like carbuncles.
The Specials gave good advice –
“So if you are a racist
Our friendship has got to end
And if your friends are racists don’t pretend to be my friend
So if you have a racist friend
Now is the time, now is the time for our friendship to end
Bloody genius FD.
Now if you can just find 2 million subscribers….You can join Eric Beecher rolling around on that pile of our money. 🙂
I’m not racist, I just don’t like anyone who doesn’t look or behave the way I think they should. So, let me bore you with my petty prejudices and unfounded fears. . . .
A friend of mine says only 3% of the Oz population is worth knowing but I reckon it’s closer to 1%. Does that make me racist?
I’m not sure I get it. It doesn’t seem to be witty, cynical or pithy… it just doesn’t do it for me … pity, normally FD is on the money….
I noticed you left Taswegia out of your survey. Too cold and windy to get racist, or do they have enough familial problems defining who is who?
I recently saw on the ABCs Best of Collectors a story of a collection of golliwogs … and next day observed a beautifully knitted golliwog for sale in a box of toys on the pavement outside the Salvos op shop. It is self evident a rare Australian collector favours golliwogs and the Salvation Army values one highly.
There. I’m done.
So, if you’re a self-hater of whatever background, does that make you racist?
Looks like the r-word triggers moderation. If only it were so in the real world.
