You've made my point that behaviours and tolerances have evolved. Maybe even the woke-ism of the day.

But today's woke-ism goes too far. These idiots are looking for stuff to denigrate and ban. Scrabble (today's Torygraph p.20)? Manhole? Manpower? Cecil Rhodes?

The further evolution that is necessary is a more acceptable approach to policing so that the "B" in BAME are not picked on because it's their word against theirs. That sort of built in prejudice must be tackled - not a whole load of rabble woke people (and their anarchist add-ons) looking to take down our culture.

Regongnizing your past is flawed (like everyone elses) does not mean you have to apologise for it.

Re: Black Lives Matter

I have to say that I'm not surprised in the least by the number of TV, Radio, Film, Music, Sports 'personalities' (with the personality equivalent to a bucket of well used cat litter) that are spouting absolute garbage in search of their 15 minutes seconds of fame.

I deliberately left Journalists off the list because they've been at it for years

I think a lot of the time when women are Karens, it is because they are completely unwilling to accept that their whiteness is a privilege.
"Their whiteness is a privilege" ? WTF ? Yet another complete moron.


(and what's a Karen ? is that an insult ?)

A karen is a newish internet slang for a busybody woman who loudly complains and asks to see the manager.

Re: Black Lives Matter

From the article...
Quote:
The name has become synonymous with a stereotype of a racist white woman, having evolved from US slang regarding women who are entitled, selfish and eager to complain.
Wonder what they call the male equivalent?

Re: Black Lives Matter

There isn't really a male equivelent. It only really gets applied to women.

It's usually where someone uploads a video of a angry women yelling at someone. I don't especially like the trend because it usually involves a video that was taken without that person's consent (although you don't need it to record publically but still), often without the full context and without knowing what the person was going through. Then it goes viral, some woman is completely publically shamed without due process and we don't know if they deserve it.
