      It'd be about as relevant as there will be 8 blondes men in the 100 meter's percent race, eight brown eyed men in the Olympics 50 meters swim. And Anglicans will get more booker prizes than Jedis.

      I.e. not at all, so why mention it?

      What exactly does this mean?
      It means that Zigenare gave a nice helpful reply to the poster. Which was jolly decent of him.

      I don't think so - "virtue signalling" came into common parlance in about 2010.
      Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

        funny really as it was a mis-translation from Plutarch. 300 BC a bit before the suit of spades. Of course one can get upset about anything if you try hard enough.

            So apparently the term 'coloured' when used to refer a to non-white person is now considered racist...

            Surely the world's gone mad?
            I filled in a form yesterday where I had to select "WHITE-BRITISH". That is offensive and racist, but I checked the box and moved on with my life.

                You started off with a "there is only one race" post then went on to talk about "mixed race".

                You just seem to be saying stuff that does not match up.
