There are virulent racists, Graham, they are not committing "microaggression", and they are not being abetted by people who you and other say do commit such imaginary offenses. Find somebody else's chain to yank, if you want to quotemine my posts.


If you feel offended by what you perceive as a "quotemine" maybe you should do something about it to "accept it easily".
Why do you think that?

I accept it fine, Graham. You don't have anything to say, so this is the road you've chosen to go down. Make your case, or fuck off with avoiding the points that others are making to you.

So, then, this is about people who "feel" they belong. They belong, by rights granted to citizens by birth, and immigrants belong wherever they are granted residence. People cannot be compelled to recognize every nuance of somebody's feelings of belonging, and this whole long circus is about the psychological torment inflicted by people who have no interest in wacky buzzwords like "microaggression". No one is entitled to feel offended, Graham, but feeling offended is all "microaggression" is about.


What? Of course they are, what a silly thing to say.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

It doesn't look like it. If the "points" you are making aren't utter crap then take your own advice. You have some work to do on your attitude.

A variant from David Starkey, trying to boast about Britishness and making a fool of himself.:



Plain as anything he looks a the other guest's face and sees an African instead of a Londoner.

The comments on that video reveal how wrong Starkey is. Very sad.

I didn't see anything wrong with what he said. Actually, his point was quite a thoughtful one, even if I'm not sure I could agree with it.
Die Alten sind weder die Juden, noch die Christen, noch die Engländer der Poesie. Sie sind nicht ein willkürlich auserwähltes Kunstvolk Gottes; noch haben sie den alleinseligmachenden Schönheitsglauben; noch besitzen sie ein Dichtungsmonopol.
