Maggie, the antiracist , took care of that unsightly business, by firing all coal miners in the UK, forever.

So if there was a parade featuring, say, Irish Famine victims with spuds or lads in army surplus gear and balaclavas carrying fizzing novelty bombs would that still be a bit of fun? Or any of the 19th cent ape-like representations of Irish from 'Punch' magazine?
Are you seriously equating what these guys did, imitating the characters of a fictional movie that in no way portrayed blacks in any negative manner with the blacking up that carried on in the past?

Have you ever heard of context? And as for your Irish examples the equivalent would not be dressing up as famine victims and prancing about having a laugh but dressing up as leprechauns and having the craic.

Anyone seen this ?

The cop is obviously having a bit of banter, video in link.


US cop filmed saying: 'We only kill black people'
The officer is assigned to administrative duties after dashcam footage reveals he made the remark last year.

Quote:
A US police officer has been filmed on his own dashcam telling a white driver not to worry because "we only kill black people".

The footage shows officer Greg Abbott pulling over a woman in Georgia.

She tells him she is frightened to move her hands because she has "seen too many videos" featuring police brutality.

The officer responds: "But you're not black. Remember we only kill black people."

The footage, recorded last July, was discovered after Channel 2 Action News submitted an open records request, prompting the police to investigate.

Mr Abbott is now under investigation and has been assigned to administrative duties.

The officer's lawyer said his client was attempting to deescalate the situation in making the remark, according to Channel 2 Action News.

Cobb County police chief Mike Register said: "The statement was made by an individual.

"They are not indicative of the values and the facts that surround the Cobb Country police department and this county in general.

"No matter what context it was said in it should not have been said.

"We are going to keep going forward to make sure that we as a police department service the community in the most professional way, all segments of the community."

The incident follows a series of high-profile killings of unarmed black people by police in the US.

Many of those that have died were pulled over on suspicion of traffic offences or other minor infringements.

Do the blacks ever white up? Would there be outrage? Would we fancy it lads?

Yes they do Al M8, although most are going for a permanent fix, they bleach their skin. Even though, it is quite dangerous, most black people actually H8 being black and want white skin, at any cost.

There's a short video in the link, that may interest you.

'I don't like black skin'
The World Health Organization has reported that Nigerians are the highest users of such products: 77% of Nigerian women use the products on a regular basis. They are followed by Togo with 59%; South Africa with 35%; and Mali at 25%.
Jackson Marcelle


Studies have found that men are also beginning to bleach their skin
South Africa banned products containing more than 2% of hydroquinone - the most common active ingredient in in the 1980s. But it is easy to see creams and lotions containing the chemical on the stalls here. Some creams contain harmful steroids and others mercury.
While skin-lightening creams have been used by some South Africans for many years, they have become more common recently with the influx of people from countries such as Nigeria and Democratic Republic of Congo, where they are even more widespread.
