Didn't ask me but I do wonder why anyone would object to a child dressing up as their black hero. I know the history of white people blacking up but surely a white child wanting to be their black hero is absolutely progress. Think that's political correctness gone mad

Didn't see that story. Got a link please?

Let's leave the racism discussion at the door before we've got 3 pages on it.

It's a thread about Barkley not who can/can't/should/shouldn't say a particular word.

The thread is shit enough already.

Was a nice try, shame every post since has been about it.

How many pages off topic before a thread gets locked?  :whistle:

Is it just me or has it been worse than usual? Feel like there's been more general aggro but less big breakdowns.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Seems like there's actually no news on any of the topic titles and all the discussions have just branched off into completely different non football based stuff. 3pm can't come quickly enough

Don't think there's any aggro here like (although it is off topic). Just a few people having an amicable chat about racism.

Jews don't call each other yids as a term of friendship.



In Yiddish, the word "Yid" Yiddish: ייד‎ is neutral or even complimentary, and in Ashkenazi Yiddish-speaking circles it is frequently used to mean simply "fellow," "chap," "buddy," "mate," etc., with no expressed emphasis on Jewishness (although this may be implied by the intra-Jewish context). Plural is יידן [jidn].

In Yiddish, a polite way to address a fellow Jew whose name one does not know is Reb Yid, meaning "Sir." The Yiddish words yidish or yiddisher (from Middle High German jüdisch) is an adjective derived from the noun Yid, and thus means "Jewish".

Could it be unacceptable in future to describe Barkley as the yid's lid?

I'm not sure where that is from, but the key point is that it refers to Yiddish speaking Jews.

Yiddish is a different language. No English speaking Jews would say yid as a term of friendship. And in Yiddish, the word yid is not a derogatory term, like it is in English.

Done deal to Spurs I've heard. I'd say it's pretty reliable IMO.
