But no, they think, I can't be!! And I certainly mustn't be thought of as being racist! So they join BLM and scream and shout about what anti-racists they are.

We have a bingo card for people like you. I'll cross the square in column 5, row 3 out now.

You don't get to interact with the bingo chart. You are the subject of it.

My new rule is this: attack me and I will attack you back faster, harder and better. Let's all try and get along, OK?

I think you'll have to put all the mods and admin in that box too.

The white BLM supporters on my social media say outright that they want to confront their own racism. And that others should do the same. They all seem to be at least partly aware of their part in the problem.

Tell me Spino: do you think there is much black on white racism in, say, the UK? Because I could tell you some anecdotes, which are of course not the plural of data.

The bingo card is about opinionated internet strangers, so, :thumbdown:

Adding ageism and sexism to your racism in one single sentence? Well done. Pity, they're not on the bingo card.

I have a fond memory playing bingo once, having won £10 on the way to Australia. That was a lot of money for this 15 year old in 1969. :dance:

Huh? Do you follow why I brought up my experiences with white BLM supporters? Because your rather sweeping post about what you think that movement is about didn't square with my experiences.
