Thought this may make for an interesting discussion

Just got back form the gym,I was sat in the sauna after a workout and there were 2 other guys in there(both white)

We were chatting away when 3 black guys came in at the same time,as they walked in one said "Oh 3 whites in here already we will even things up now"

We all thought it was white funny and proceeded to have a laugh,now if the situation was reversed and this was 3 white guys who had made the initial comments I think it would have been a different ball game sadly,as it should be just about having laugh in these situations

Personally I found it quite funny and refreshing but I am sure others may have took it more seriously....opinions??

If we could avoid the usual trolling/name calling/accusations of being a racist nazi and treat everyone with respect for once it would be great

Na i think both sides would find it funny

Dont boil down to race boils down to humour of the individual

yup, it can only be racist nowadays if a white man insults a black man. never the other way round. i guess its fair enough really for the years of enslavement and abuse we gave them.

personally i think we should be able to just have a laugh whichever way the comments are directed when its relatively non-offensive comments like tht

There would have been racial discrimination claims if it had been the other way around.

But it was about white people so its ok.

Comments like that make me laugh, knee jerk reaction to anything that may be racist "if it were the other way round.... blah blah"

tbh sounds like if you had said it to those guys they would have laughed, like said, it's the individual.

I recon the other way round would have been considered 'racist'.


I'd take it more as a poke at the years of intolerable racism minority groups have suffered at the hands of the racist protagonists of the past, and present.

mind you if it was 3 women sat there and any colour bloke walked in and said "oooh 3 women now we even it up" they would have been accused by some folk of being sexist...

They were having an ironic laugh at the situation given the fact their race have been subjected to racial abuse in the past - and still are.

It's quite clear boothy. Any more and this thread will bite the bullet, for the reasons previously reported.

Thankyou,although that is perhaps a bit deep for 3 blokes in the gym, I am not sure that was what they were thinking

It's just a polite reminder to make sure that responses are considered and the thread does not degenerate into a rabble on a quite sensitive and important subject.
