Thanks Toby, that was about time. You banned that racist thread by Jbrook about some beach in Paracuru to the flamer's paradise, where it rightfully belongs. Jbrook proudly presented himself as somebody not hiding behind an alias but being the proud himself, and when he was called out on that, he ran to you asking for removal.

I think - and I might be mistaken - that a copy of the full thread is already on another kite forum. Let's see!

Here's the thread (without the beefy face of Mr. Brook, which got removed):

since this will only lead to continuation of the former BS topic, this also goes to flamer's paradise.

Let's keep it there and talk about kitesurfing in the main forum.

Thanks
Toby

I have not been banned you Barney?? Nice pic kook.
I asked to have it removed if Toby wanted to because one of the local boys said to me would do no good for them. I left it up to Toby to decide you douche bag Alamos kiter.

Ok so when did Europeans become a race? And at what point did Jbrook claim superiority over any race or even mention race. So F'ing tired of people throwing the race card and they don't even know what they are talking about.

He may have been some what wrong with his approach to a problem at his local spot but that does not make him a racist. An ass hole may be? I don't know the guy so I will leave that judgement for another day.

Here you go then:

Cultural racism

Cultural racism is a term used to describe and explain new racial ideologies and practices that have emerged since World War II. It can be defined as societal beliefs and customs that promote the assumption that the products of a given culture, including the language and traditions of that culture are superior to those of other cultures. It shares a great deal with xenophobia, which is often characterised by fear of, or aggression toward, members of an outgroup by members of an ingroup.

Cultural racism exists when there is a widespread acceptance of stereotypes concerning different ethnic or population groups. Where racism can be characterised by the belief that one race is inherently superior to another, cultural racism can be characterised by the belief that one culture is inherently superior to another.

I know your reading skills and text understanding are limited. Here's what it says above:

"You banned that racist thread by Jbrook about some beach in Paracuru..."

You understand? "Thread by Jbrook" is not the same as "Jbrook".

Totally agree. For me this kinda crap being thrown about just trivialises it and makes a mockery of those who have deal with serious racial issues around the world. To call someone a racist is a very serious and insulting accusation and is done way to easily these days with no consequence for being wrong. No doubt that jbrook guy was pissed off and having a rant but I very much doubt he's a racist although most ppl on the forum probably now think he is. I feel the same way about those drunk sluts chasing footballers for money trivialising rape... pick the bones outa that mincers!

I thought I was the only one finding the humor and irony in this. Lets see... A bunch of rich white guys on a forum calling another rich white guy a racist for not liking the behavior of another group of rich white guys. Yeah, I say the race card is a little over played. I think if I was a real minority affected by racism (instead of another rich white guy) I would be offended.

And there you have it. This shit ball of a thread about a shit ball of a thread can actually lead to some decent discussion.

There are moments when my faith in y'all gets a little lift.

Gonna be a decent day.
