    Bullshit, discrimination based on nationality is xenophobia. You can't claim Irish who hate the English is based on race.

    And if you have three (ferinstance) muslims who happen to be white, black & arab & you discriminate against one of them who happens to be a different color than you would be based on race, NOT religion.. The religion part of it has fuck all to do with race.

    This blurring of the lines has rendered the race card obsolete. I got called a racist yesterday because I pointed out that Nancy Pelosi is a blithering fucking idiot by another blithering fucking idiot who has NO idea what race I happen to be (*human*)

    Strange, I've been living in Bulgaria for over a year and can't think of a single person that I've taken a dislike to. Maybe it's an age thing

    Not so sure what that statement actually conveys

    Possibly that my Bulgarian is so bad that I can't understand "Piss off back home you English bastard" when it's said behind a smile

    Seems that Vals complaint is fair enough to me.
    To accuse someone of something based purely on their race is racism. Its the fucming definition of it.
    Then theres the "Go back to where you came from" stuff? What the hell do you lot thing thats all about?

    Try saying that to someone black and see what they think of it.

    You might not like Vals points on several issues but some peoples arguments against him are both racist and piss fucking poor.

    Val promised to go away if we voted for Brexit but he's still here annoying/amusing us. He's a valid target for "Go back where you came from" comments.

    In case you hadn’t noticed ..Val has spent the past 18 months telling us our country is a shithole and going to get worse ..telling him to go back to Bulgaria isn’t so much racist, as sound practical advice when faced with his hatred of this country ....

    I think the phrase, biting the hand that feeds you comes to mind ...

    Somewhere in the dim and distant past I seem to remember you posting a pretty good definition of racism in the context of people talking about Gypsies.
    Pretty sure it covered a fair amount of this, not searched for it just yet...

    Calling all Bulgarians or all Gypsies wankers is racist. That doesn't mean that no Gypsies are wankers, and we have living proof that Val the Bulgarian is a wanker. And telling him to piss of is just plain common sense.

    No. Wanker isn't a racist term, otherwise I'm in a race of my own, being a total wanker myself.

    It may be judgemental to call all Bulgarians wankers, but it's certainly not racist.

    Linguistically yes, legally no (in the UK).

    That's not the race card being played or lines being blurred, that's just an idiot you were speaking to - assuming the remarks you made were not inherently racist in nature.
