Pretty much most of the commenters in the SYB attached to this;

Mostly snobbery and fat-shaming.
Fuck my boots that was grim.
It's depressing. It's like they look for things to feel superior to.

I cook nearly every day. Mostly from scratch. But these small-minded cunts would still feel the need to sneer when a Friday comes around when I say "fuck it, we're getting a pizza in".

Why? What fucked up psychological need does this satisfy?

We might have a winner. I know, it's only 3:15.

I thought Otto might be paraphrasing, but no. And if he's as the brilliant, insightful academic he wants you all to think he is (I don't rate him), he knows exactly what he's doing here.

David "The white kids have started acting black" Starkey.
Slavery was not genocide, otherwise there wouldn't be so many damn blacks in Africa or in Britain, would there?
Darren Grimes was interviewing him on "Reasoned" or whatever. This is getting a lot of attention, might see both of them looking for real work.

Starkey's argument would only hold water if the entire black population of Africa had been transported overseas, and the "survivors" had managed to return there after slavery was ended.

The man is a disgusting and contemptible cunt.

You'd think after his QT scandal in 2011 he might choose to be more careful with the language he uses but he seems to have not only jumped on the rabid "you can't even sing baa baa black sheep anymore!" train but he's immediately sought out the ticket inspector to upgrade to first class.

Starkey's a clever bloke, but has found out that controversy pays the bills far better than proper work.
Much of the blame lies with Television stations looking for a "Character" who will bring "Balance".

A footnote in the history department...

David Starkey resigns from university role over slavery comments

Fitzwilliam College, at Cambridge University, has announced it has "accepted the resignation of historian David Starkey from his honorary fellowship with immediate effect".
