    Where have I said anything that implies I'm a slut? :rolleyes: I accept that between consenting adults, they can engage in whatever sexual acts that they want to. Lol at least I know how to spell.

    Actually, at my last party, it was mostly boys and there was a range of races of people there. Lol white people don't smell. How racist of you.

    Usually, adults have a certain amount of responsibility. Also, people having sex doesn't really harm society. It isn't disgusting really, it's just what they want to do. As long as everyone is consenting (otherwise it's gang-rape lol), what's the proplem? Smelly alcopops? What, because I drink WKD at parties? Like most girls? :rolleyes: Lol get your own money.

    good points.
    i have one question however - light skinned asians who don't identify themselves as europeans - why should they not identify themselves as brown?
    Because ethnically they're "Asian". Strictly speaking terms such as white, brown and black aren't PC and are slowly being phased out of common usage which I totally agree with.

    I mean you could have a White-English man who happens to be brown because he lay naked on a beach in Spain all summer long.

    Describing by genetic/ethnic origin is more accurate and conventional well certainly in a medical context when describing patients in either case-studies or clinical trials we wouldn't say "10 white men were given drug x", we'd describe them as "10 caucasian males".

    If you ask me describing someone by the colour of their skin is just as bad as calling them a P or an N or a C or a H.

    Obama tends to be referred to as the first "African-American" President of the USA as opposed to a black president or an N. Infact it was the very man in my display picture who first brought the term "African-American" into public consciousness.

    Personally if someone called me a "brown guy" I would be extremely offended. There is more to me as a man than simply the colour of my skin.

    FFS I'm not saying black people haven't done outstanding things.

    I'm asking why are mix raced automatically referred to as black when they excell, as opposed to being white of which they are 50% of?

    Perhaps the wording in the OP is misleading, but that's what I mean.
    tbh I've never reffered to Tiger Woods or Lewie as black. As for Obama, we all only call him 'black' because he's the first president to have a shred of it in him.

    We call him black because he calls himself black. If he refered to himself as mixed race, then we would call him mixed race. If he called himself mixed race, but we still called him black, i think he would be quite upset.

    I didn't make the pic, It's just the standard meme, so you're the fool there.

    He's not Chinese he's Asian, and he could be Korean, or Japanese for all you know, so you just proved to yourself that you're the racist fool.

    I know of plenty of even tempered East Asians, so good job making foolish judgements.

    Assuming you are a 6th former you're at least 16 years old which technically is classed as adult in the UK seeing as you can consent to....ahem.... leave home without your parents permision, get married and be legally tried as an adult (I think).

    Even if you aren't quite 18 you're almost there and a degree of maturity should be expected and exhibited. Some 16 year olds (some younger) may act as full time carers for a diabled/ill parent/guardian. Just because you're a certain age doesn't excuse bad behaviour.

    Besides Santa Claus will be checking his list day after tomorrow so be good for goodness sake!

    Then we should call him white. Some people may not be happy about that but at the end of the day, only he can identify himself. A person born in london could say they are english, or british, or european, its up to them. We should respect people enough to call them what they want to be called.
