    I'd rather be called a chav than a kulak!

    That made me laugh, i can't stand political correctness. They way I see it is if you don't like what I've said, go live somewhere where human rights don't apply and freedom of speech is laughed about.

    Is coloured person seriously on the bad list?? How much more politically correct can you get?

    You're an idiot, aren't you?
    I bet you're either a health and safety official, or someone who tells everyone that anything they say could be offensive. E.G "no, it's not not 'lazy', it's 'motivationally challenged' that word could be offensive to lazy people."


    GTFO my thread.

    I had a coloured person get very angry with me because I called him a coloured person.

    They call themselves chavs and they seem proud of it, same thing happened with gays taking the word queer which was originally offensive, and again black people calling themselves nigras.
    What, you mean Negro?

    I haven't done extensive research into this, but I thought "negro" meant "black" in Spanish/Portuguese (this comes from the Latin "niger", which also means "black"). If you mean the other "n word", I don't think blacks have taken that one yet (not that I blame them)

    I've just looked it up on Wikipedia, and in the 19th/20th centuries, they tried to introduce the word "Negroid" (-oid meaning "similar to"), so it'd incorporate most...err..."coloured people".

    As if the word "Negroid" doesn't make blacks sound like outcasts.

    "It's the attack of the Negroids!" :woo:

    :rolleyes:

    Why refer to their race though? A person is a person, not a colour.

    Banning words?

    Err, what are we coming too.

    Of course it shouldn't be banned. I don't think that 'racist' words should be banned in all seriousness. I don't take them seriously, the only people that do take them seriously are delusioned easily impressionable morons. And they're only going to get hurt out of it. If someone came up to me and called me whitey, I wouldn't take offense, I wouldn't even think of it twice. Does mah head in.

    Plus, I hate chavs.

    Do chavs mind being called it? Do they have aspirations of being the head chav one day? (I don't know, but I thought chavs liked the term)
    ^^ (Y) when I was in yr 8 (a few 3/4 years ago) a girl asked our teacher what a chav was (she could probably be defined as an 'almost there' chavesque sort of girl) and then said to herself under her breath I wanna be a chaaav


    and I've heard the phrase 'chavvin it up' used many times (and not in a comic way :rolleyes:)

    :O

    Chavs have put a lot into Britain's society e.g. You can't find them anywhere else in the world!
    Sure you can. Every country has its chavs -they're just not called that.

    yes, most polite, but if your having an argument and your trying to diss the person you wouldn't say (for example):
    'you retaarded peice of craap! john boy
    'you retaarded peice of craap! gay boy
    :laughing: yes i know, not very realistic, but this is how i see it.
    yes but if you're being polite you wouldn't be arguing.

    I would.... but you see I have TSR to stroll through and I'm afraid that is just too important.

    Have a nice day :ciao:

    That girl has ambition! I can actually imagine someone saying that

    It wouldn't be a surprise to me. I have a friend who takes great delight in being called a wigga, right down to his fake diamond earring!
