    It was used in the Times today, so it's probably ok.

    They had some article about the proportion of white people arrested on suspicion of terrorist activities had risen to 40%. Though according to their figures, non-whites are four times more like to be arrested than whites. Your liberal woke folk would claim that's evidence of institutionalised racism in the police. I'd just like to know is how many of those arrested were convicted, and what was the proportion there?

    Oh dear. Is diddums still upset that diddums got banned for sexist crap to some poor women who mistakenly posted in General? Or is diddums just projecting. Could it be your impotence that makes you use the smiley so often - bitterness at your lack of... anything really. Or perhaps you're just virtue signalling to your misogynistic, xenophobic, bitter, twisted, gammon faced mates? If you had any.
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

      The "poor woman" that you so generously white knighted for has made the same "mistake" on more than one occasion. Hence more than one person making the "gittinsgal" assumption.

      You need a chill pill mate, you're getting very wound up.

            I referred to a woman as coloured because i didn’t know her name but she was the only non white in the accounts team.

            I said something like not sure of her name but she is the coloured women in accounts.

            There was a bit of silence and awkwardness.

            I thought if I said the black person that would be the non pc term.

            It’s confusing now.

              yeh, so is calling someone white also problematic? - brown? red? sallow? how does one describe people without some twat taking offence? - and the twats are usually tree hugging white middle class hippies

                If you can't describe a person by skin colour anymore, why is it acceptable to describe a person by other physical attributes such as male/female, length, big nose, blond hair, in a wheel chair etc

                    Mmm. We the mods have access to more information than you do.

                    Such accusations have been wrong before. Furthermore whether this was a sockie, your misogyny was offensive to others than myself

                    I note you gave a helpful answer in the end. Which was nice of you.
