I was surprised at the number of people who seem to disagree with the judge, I find this an alarming symptom of where this nation is heading. Visible racial characteristics are no different from visible physical differences, should I prosecute an ex neighbour for calling me a "Bald headed old g-t"? what about someone with a limp being called "gimpy"? what about the media calling a politician a "lame duck"? Have we forgottern the old saying, "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names can never hurt me"?
Ian Mcalister, dorking, United Kingdom
Racisim is the same as calling someone bald. Makes you want to bang your head against a wall doesn't it?
Ian Mcalister should stop dorking and start praying, because God's way of dealing with his ex-neighbour is to have him eaten by bears, as described in 2 Kings 2:23-24:
I wonder whether being a bald git results in him being beaten up, passed over for jobs, paid less than people with hair, having his windows broken, graffiti being scrawled on his house, the BNP putting him in fear for his life... Yup, being called "baldy" is exactly
the same as racism...
