Is this racist and if so how?

Post by vincemunday » May 10, 2020, 9:10 pm

A couple of days ago I put up a graphic which showed the importance of wearing a mask and the chances of infection with and without. After posting it I got quite a serious response from a member on here (and also was on my Facebook etc) accusing me of posting racist material. Those who know me well know how daft that is, if I thought something was racist I wouldn’t post it and believe it or not I like a lot of us on here am married to an Asian, I look at this ad and think it’s totally inclusive and completely not racist, am I wrong?

Opinions please.

Vince, guess some people have their heads stuck where the sun don't shine. Nothing wrong with the chart.

As you see here, quite robust responses, I’m actually being compared to Hitler, at first I thought he’s was joking about, hence my response but no, he was deathly serious.

Gentlemen, I think that it would be better if you addressed the identity of the individual involved someplace other than the public forum here. While Vince's initial question is a reasonable one for discussion, identifying the individual involved can only send this conversation downhill. Please have that conversation privately, offline.

No, that’s not what the thread is about, I was a bit worried I’d missed something, he knows who he is I’m sure but that’s not the issue here.

If it only had white people, in this day and age, it would be deemed racist.
It depicts different cultures, so to me, is not racist.

Then again, it does not specifically show a Muslim, and apparently that's racist.
It seems, nearly every western media story nowadays, shows a Muslim, even though they are only a small percentage of that population?

Hard to win.

I think its racist ! Despite showing a ginger minger , it does not show a fair haired white person . Therefore it must be racist .
Honestly Vince , why worry about it . No matter what you do or say these days , you are likely to offend some libtard or another .
Political correctness has just gone mad . What happened to the days when you could call a spade a spade , and not a digging implement for fear of upsetting some snowflake .

After being called many things, I can categorically state that Chart Vincemunday posted is not Racist in any way , however having said that we should be mindful that UK Govt sources state quite clearly if you are part of the ethnic minority grouping and coloured as well you are more likely to get infected, even more so if you are a male. Reasons abound but actual reasons not known.

Since it is just stating facts, how can it be any more racist that blaming the Chinese government for covering up the pandemic and hoarding masks and such? Why would anyone think the article/charts are racist?

Certainly seems to like the genetic differences between European as opposed to Middle/ Far Eastern genes. The question is , is a Gene Racist ?

I would not worry about it. There are always people searching for any reason to call someone a racist. If you were to mention you were going to buy a blackboard someone would determine that is racist. You just have to ignore those people.
