which includes our ancestral Neanderthals. Approx 2% of the DNA of all non-Africans(sub-saharan). And if we must include Neanderthals in the Genus, then must we also include Geordies ?

to say anything bad about Neanderthals is to be racist ? more offensive than being Christian-ophobic or HeteroPhobic.

if a straight bloke got attacked at the Eurovision final, does that count as a hate-crime against a minority ?

Youíre being a bit ridiculous there PV. As if thereíd be a straight bloke at the Eurovision final.

In the absence of any response can we assume that there are no examples?
We live in a country/society in which people are, and have been for hundreds of years, pre-judged om their accent/ social class, appearance,etc. Judging others for different criteria is equally unacceptable but is no more worthy of condemnation.

When has not being asked to reply ever constrained you?

Whilst you can pick nits from the evolution of the language you cannot from the attitude it describes.

I missed your follow-up. If the Met Police are an example then obviously it was in London!

I agree that all forms of discrimination are unacceptable. It seems to me though that whilst many people handle discrimination on such things as accent, social class or appearance quite lightly, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, there is a nasty edge involved in racism. I have several friends who originate from Yorkshire who routinely join in with the sarcasm about their bluntness etc.

Nothing tongue in cheek about denying people jobs because of their accent which can and does happen. There are no laws to stop it either. No one is being taken to court because of snobbery.
London is one example where to have the native accent is often a disadvantage.

Who's Maz? I don't remember him, but my memory is crap these days.
I think we should move away from black ink on white paper. I bet someone's setting up a campaign right now.
And did you know - white cars are not only cheaper to buy than black cars, they are also cheaper to insure? Racist b******s.

Maz is a constant on the BBS. He was here in disguise for a while, but I can't remember the username.

I think the British should accuse everybody who uses a train, a telephone, the internet, plays football, in fact a very large number of things, of cultural appropriation.

I'm still waiting for a Catalonian football club to accuse us of cultural appropriation for our shirts!

Also, I once wrote a story at about 8 years old whilst in school that revolved around a boy wizard. JK Rowling may have fooled everybody else but I know exactly what she is, a fraud... and I want my money, which is not the point just a coincidental ramification of justice.
