I realise being banned from AW is the norm, but for the following message. Wow! That crowd has gone totally nuts. I posted it in the thread that was discussing the interracial couple on the Cheerio's commercial that is causing such an uproar. So many people find it offensive.
"Oh what a lovely little girl. Such beautiful hair. It's been suggested that Cheerios made this commercial bi-racial to give them more publicity and show how unbiased they were. I don't, of course, believe that for a minute. I don't think they even thought about the races of those involved. The actors just happened to be white, black and mulatto.
It's also been said that it's disproportionate how many black people are now in ads, as blacks only make up about 13% of the US population. I think, however, that this is a somewhat cynical viewpoint. Inter-racial marriage, of course, is still illegal in some Arab countries, and used to be illegal in the US until just a few decades ago. Incredible, isn't it, all this fuss about skin colour.
We've come so far in the last little while with gay marriages and interracial marriages. This long overdue policy of inclusiveness has totally liberated and improved Western society and is part of the reason we are doing so much better today, in every way, than we were in say the 1950s."
They are a bunch of red-necked ham-shankers (rhyming slang) my dear. You were wise not to try and stay, what they know about writing and what comes out of a cow's backside is the same stuff. They banned me cos I told them they were full of it.
I saw the advert on FB (William Stephen Taylor) and LMAO. Britain is a nation of mixed nationalities, if you're a human being, your race can be found in Britain. We have the nations who we fought wars with and those we fought against. My wife is German, my granddaughter is Dutch and I have ancestors going back as far as the Spanish Moors (Spain is a Christian Arab land). Can you beat that.
Being banned from AW is the norm. Only the pathetic brown nosers remain. I was banned for referring to women as females. Some crazy old mod with crap for brains said it was 'disrespectful.' Go figure. It's a horrible forum and I haven't been near it for years.
