    it's not a comparable situation though because
    1) it was a joke anyway
    2) "spud-face" is related to his nationality, not his race.

    I was joking as well.

    The Irish are synonymous with 'spuds' and the Irish are technically a race.

    "Men with Gaelic surnames coming from the west of Ireland are descendants of the oldest inhabitants of Europe. In a recent study, scientists at Trinity College, Dublin, created a new genetic map of the people of Ireland. By comparing this map to European genetic maps they have shown that the Irish are one of the last remnants of the pre-Neolithic hunters and gatherers who were living throughout Europe over 10,000 years ago, before the invention of agriculture."

    they're white. they're a different ethnicity of "white" but they're not a different "race". and "spuds" relate to their country's agricultural traditions, not their race

    So it's OK to make derogatory statements about sub-ethnic groups, so long as they are white ?

    Go it !

    no you've missed the point - I wasn't making fun of irish people as an ethnicity, I was making fun of this prime minister based on his country's stereotypes and traditions. it's based on geography, not biology

    So, by contrast, it would then be OK to call black people 'spear chuckers' because it isn't related to their biological makeup ? This seems really complex.

    Have i got it right this time ?

    it would depend on which country you were talking about I suppose 0 but are spears specific to that nation? because that's probably a weapon that a lot of nations' armies have ultimately used. but remember - you'#re using the word "black people", not something like "ethiopian" or "nigerian" so no you haven't got it very right

    Imagine being lectured on racism by Enda Kenny. From his Wiki:

    "N****r" remarks, 2002[edit]
    In September 2002, Kenny was accused of making racist remarks after he used the word "n****r" in a joke relating to Patrice Lumumba, the assassinated first Prime Minister of Congo. Kenny wanted his "obscure joke" to be suppressed and specifically asked journalists not to report it, though Enda's "chortling repetition of the inflammatory word" was carried by the Sunday Independent newspaper.[25] He was subsequently condemned by race campaigners in Britain and abroad.[26][27] Matters were made worse when it emerged that several of Lumumba's relatives, including a son and several grandchildren, lived in Tallaght.[28]

    Enda Kenny, Irish Prime Minister: I'll meet Donald Trump and tell him why his views are racist and dangerous
    The Irish Prime Minister massively overrates his importance. Ireland is smaller (population-wise and economically) than London, than many American states, than many Australian states. The Irish state is a glorified local government
