Thank goodness the likes of you are increasingly marginalised in society, even if not on this site. You keep re-justifying your bans from the BBS

I am sure Stirling will find a way to defend you though.

I'd go further than Hrolf did, there are several aspects on display here.

However, I'm just not interested in highlighting them because those with brains can already see them....and well, there are likeable aspects about both Will Smith and Chris Rock.

Talking about race would just distract and I can't be bothered writing long posts repeating the same obvious stuff.

My thoughts exactly.

yeah let's clear that up. There was no punch thrown. It was an open hand slap, that may have connected with fingers at best, rather than the whole hand. And there is a big difference between those things with regards to really trying to hurt someone or making a statement. Either way I'm not convinced one way or the other whether it was scripted or not. There's something very weird about the whole thing. Maybe he got 2/3 of the way up there and realised he had to do something. The spark was defo WS seeing his wife's unimpressed face, after WH himself laughed at the initial joke.

Getting banned from any social media site is not a badge of honour, it's a sign that you can't get along with people and have zero self-awareness. Getting banned more than once is quite literally insanity.

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

Trying to pretend I'm a racist, presumably to try and get me banned, is truly pathetic. It really doesn't reflect well on you.

I'm perfectly entitled to comment on the state of the Oscars and the obvious attempts to make awards about race rather than talent. If Black men behave badly, then it reflects badly on any attempt to raise their status.

If you can't see that, then you are truly deluded.

Like I said. Imagine if a White actor had done that. You clearly want a world with dual standards where White people are held to account for everything, including stuff they had nothing to do with, and others aren't.

Now that is racism. Not your stupid definition.

You want to talk about racism?

Imagine what would have happened if a White actor had done that.


I had left your initial comment well alone despite it being your usual pattern of contorting almost every thread you take part in towards this angle.. because what's the point of encouraging that. And at least when its' black man head count' type angle, your colour coding is amusing.

But that's not good enough is it. You also want to whine about every single reaction to your comments by posters for pages on end as if there's no right of reply to you when questioned and turn ever thread into a defense of your ludicrous conduct.

Your predictably cerebral inference / take on this event 'It's good to see that all that new diversity at the Oscars has raised the tone.' = Smith punched Chris Rock because he's black (that this occurred due to racial diversity at the event).

Let's be clear, that's what your comment means and is. Hence your nod to the 'stabbing' comment too.

And your explanation for Chris Rock's dignified response is..?


Somehow Smith's actions are attributed by you in a sweeping fashion to a demographic rather than him being a man whose cr@p conduct is his own. And yet Chris Rock's reaction appears to mean nothing about race at all to you and is not worthy of one word across your many posts. You can't 'use' his behaviour, so you disregard it. You're looking to demonise specific demographics as per usual. If I picked a random white person who committed a crime and attributed it to you is that reasonable or your responsibility..

Getting assaulted out of nowhere on live TV then yelled at while maintaining composure can't be easy. It's certainly more restraint than our resident race obsessive can ever muster, which tells you how useful your perpetual colour coding is in this matter.

Maple is well within his rights to highlight your posts as he sees fit. Despite your several yellow cards for expletive ridden attacks (maybe you have more in common with Will Smith than you realise?) I can't think of one instance where your race 'mantra' has ever got you carded.

The only interesting question would be, how useful or fair is that as a strategy on a site that is supposed to be for all Palace fans? It's possible that what it comes down to is that racking up post numbers holds a certain value, and that there's an 'out of the sight, out of mind' aspect beyond that. I can't say I'd want to profit from some of what's sh@t out across threads on here, but 'if' that's what it's all then about each to their own, only it becomes the opposite of fan focused.

In any case, carry on for another ten pages if you wish Hrolf, I won't be reading any of it, so it's an irrelevance to me really..

This is exactly the point, well said. The implication is 'if you allow black people to participate what do you expect'.

The strange thing is that despite being completely fixated on race, Hrolf does not believe he is a racist. Every problem in the world is because of other races it seems, but to him that is only pointing out the obvious rather than being racist.

And I have not set out to get him banned by having my say, nor have I ever raised any of his posts with the mods. The fact he has never been carded on this site for his clearly racist comments does, however, perplex me.

Why else would you spew your characteristic faux outrage?

The simple fact is that the Oscars like so many things have been subject to Wokeism and 'inclusivity' which is a code word for positive discrimination.

Given that, here we have a Black man getting away with behaviour that a White man could not. His career would be over as you well know.
You are perfectly entitled to your point of view on that, as am I.

Now you and your clone BlueJay can shove your accusatorial codswallop where the sun doesn't shine.

Because this is obviously the first year there's been black blokes at the Oscars, you can of course conclude that diversity is to blame.

When two 50+ year old American-born entertainers, who have been attending award shows for more than two decades, have their first ever confrontation, only then is it diversity.

How can you argue with logic like that?
