Re: Racism and Meghan

Harry once went to a party dressed as a Nazi SS officer and they are moving to a country led by a good friend of Meghan who was recently shown to have gone blackface.

Just sayin'... ;)

Re: Racism and Meghan

Yes - if they are judging their experience on the nether regions of the internet then it's no surprise they feel the way they do.

Will moving to Canada make much difference?

Re: Racism and Meghan

I confess that I haven't watched the video, I should probably do so before I comment further. :D I did wonder. Watching Jeremy Vine on ch5 (I know, I know - I should really up my viewing standards) the actress Nina Wadia is making the same point albiet in a totally non-confrontational manner unlike...

Re: Racism and Meghan

On the question of racism being a motivation for the opprobrium Meghan suffers - I accept that from some it might well be, but it is not the sole reason nor it is necessarily the main reason. Consider Tony's point that initially the reponse to her appeared to be pretty universally positive (barring ...

Re: Racism and Meghan

Yes - that's what I thought. Most of the early commentary was how refeshing she was. I for one don't see her as anything but a relatively (physically) attractive young woman - her 'blackness', such as it is, is of little relevance. The problem is that this commentator - Dr. Shola - won't actually sa...

Racism and Meghan

Is racism at the heart of criticism of the Countess of Sussex? This has been a big topic over the last few days. This Lady - Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu has been making waves - here with Phil Schofield on This Morning and she was on the same tack with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain. Watch from abo...

Re: Gwyneth Paltrow's Candle

Am I the only one to wonder exactly HOW she gets the candles to smell like her fanny? :shock:

Gwyneth Paltrow's Candle

I'm thinking of complaining to the ASA about her claim that a candle she is selling smells like her vagina. I think this should be investigated.

Re: Iran's 'red flag of war' hints impending revenge.

Am I being overly cynical or does anyone else think that Trump's sudden belligerence might have something to do with his domestic political problems? After all, it would be unpatriotic, would it not, to pursue the impeachment of a president who is in the middle of handling a major international cri...

Re: George Bernard Shaw on "Patriotism".

I find Patriotism and Nationalism a bit confusing. I see Patriotism as being rather benign and positive - little more than supporting a sports team which, let's face it, is scarcely more understandable. Nationalism I see as more sinister. I think others think differently - patriotism in some places ...
