    Racism is where discrimination causes real harm to people. Not imagined slights. There's a woman who lives near me who insists that any mention of her children's hair is racist. She's a light-skinned black woman married to a white man and their children look white, but have curly hair. As do many white people. That sort of crap. I'm not going to pursue this any further.

    I don't condone racism. True racism is vile. I just don't agree with the modern obsession of interpreting everything as racism, down to a mere mention of someone's ethnicity. I'll leave it to the snowflakes.

    Bad jokes about old stereotypes are not racism.

    Didn't watch it. Won't be watching it or reading about it. (Apart from any comments here.)

    That's my impression too, Windsor.

    And he gets things wrong, like saying Indian when he meant cowboy (in the context of shoddy work). The "British women can't cook" was reputedly said on a visit to the Scottish Women's Institute, and I suspect he meant to say "English women can't cook". He's always made jokes at everybody's expense. An equal opportunities offender.
  7. Not quite. It doesn't go that far. It just doesn't state that he is dead.

    Where does this thing about Philip being racist come from? As far as I can remember all he's ever done is make bad jokes. A few have played on racial characteristics or national stereotypes, but mostly he's just been tactless. Few groups have escaped his wisecracks. "British women can't cook" - 1961

    Pouring some white wine on top of it always worked for me. Somehow they cancel each other out.

    Couldn't agree more. This is causing growing resentment and creating racism where there was none before.
  12. Didn't it come loose when the dog pulled you over? You should have gone to the dentist then.

    All deaths should go in 'Deaths of 2021' regardless. You can cross-post if there's an obviously appropriate niche thread. Maybe we should have one for "Americans who are only notable in their own back yard".

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    Apparently it was written with the intention that she should play that character, so there it is.

    Isn't she in Fleabag?

    I'm no fan of Andrew, but I don't like to see him described as a paedophile or "nonce". Please can we keep these terms to mean people who sexually abuse pre-pubescent children. Whatever the truth of the matter, the woman making the allegations was not a child at the time of the alleged incident. As far as I understand it she was 17, which is over the age of consent in the UK and many other countries.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    I watched Behind Her Eyes on Netflix. A six-parter that seemed like a run-of-the-mill infidelity love-triangle thing, but it took an unexpected turn and had a WTF denouement. I enjoyed it, but some will think it was utter bollocks. Eve Hewson (Bono's daughter) was one of the leads, she was very very good, I hadn't seen her in anything before. Now catching up with an ITV series, Unforgotten, police procedural on cold cases. Enjoyed the first series, fantastic cast, and on the second one now. I'm not a fan of Nicola Walker though, she's been the same in everything I've ever seen her in so if she has any range at all I've yet to see it.

    I so wish you get the opportunity to ask her that. Actually though .... you could write and ask her!

    There seems to be a tendency in my family to keep you hanging around for hours and then die the moment you leave the room for any reason.

    People who've got a thread

    I think this will be very useful, if 1. It is pinned. 2. Names are listed alphabetically by surname. I'd also dump the idea of highlighting the "known" names, as this is obviously subjective, and it's pointless because if you are looking for a particular name, it follows that you are aware of it.
