Prince Harry in trouble again

Do you think this makes him a racist?

Even at school kids are aware that you should not use that term, so why does a Prince need to speak like that? The lad has had top schooling and should know not to say certain things.

Certainly not trying to start a race argument here, but would be interested to hear other peoples views on this.

It was a video made with his friends, for his friends and including his friends. Was he eing deliberately offensive? No

I am not arguing that "p*ki" isn't a racist term, it is, but in this context it's irrelevant.

It's a private video made 3 years ago in which he uses a friend's nickname.

This is not news. This is The News of The World stirring up trouble. But I have no doubt that the country will go "mental" just like when Brand/Ross did absolutely nothing wrong and the tabloid reading scum of this country pounced on them.

This will drag out for days whilst the rest of the world blows each other up or starves to death.

The thing that surpised me was that this is the main news item on the BBC site, strange what sells newspapers.

I agree with the comments here, the way certain news items are edited these days kind of make you feel like you SHOULD be offended by things such as this.

the only things disgraceful about this 'story' -

[LIST]
[*]Its 3 years old
[*]The word '****' has been usurped by the left wing so that yet *another* word becomes taboo
[*]Its 'The News of the World'
[*]Every other shortened shortened race name e.g. Afghan, somehow seems free (just now) of the wrath of the PC brigade
[*]Somehow its made the front page of the BBC news website
[*]There is going to come a day when all jokes are banned since someone somewhere might take offence
[/LIST]

'****' is the shortened word used in every day language for 'Pakistani' and yes, can be used abusively, but clearly was not in the context of the princes situation. My own feeling is the PC brigade have managed to slip the thin end of a very large wedge into this nations way of operating and its a shame that left wingers, rather than the more stereotypical right wingers look set to establish the UK's first orwelian state, should they manage to drive the wedge further in.



rant over, but FFS a 3 year old story about the word '****'....
It makes me sad and frustrated that we as a nation get so tied up in angst over this drivel, when there is so much *seriously* wrong in the country at the moment.

I don't think there was any racist posts, all so far had been sensible and had a point, until the 'here we go' gang appeared.
#22
This is old news, so for those who immediately say hasnt he learnt his lesson they need to be aware of this fact. It is being misreported giving the impression that it it something new.

However, whether it has relevance or not is a different thing. Prince Harry has a great deal of power by virtue of his place as a Royal funded by the taxpayer. He is also in charge of soldiers whilst in the Army. Both may make it difficult for someone to complain if they were offended. For these reasons he must exercise a high degree of personal responsibility.

the thing in the army anything goes, in terms of nicknames etc, thats the life of the army, as I understand it. IMO IMO IMO

however.....the way lads chat and banter with each other usually is like this..... fact is there was no offence intended and it was all a private joke which the guy understood.....feel sorry fo prince harry....dont think he has done anything wrong ..... he is a young guy in the new millenium....give him some grace.

Stupid Lad.

In his position (both Job and Royalty) he should know better.

I understand this is an old recording but if any other military officer had done this they would be disciplined. I'm sorry but you cannot show publicly any thing that might be classed as racist.
You can say this was not meant to be seen publicly but a person with his upbringing knows full well that these things have a habit of coming out..

So I feel he was a very stupid lad and should be aware that its only because he is who he is that no official action will be taken.

I hope he has now learned his lessons and will not do anything that himself,the military,the royalty and this country would be embaressed about again.


aww cme on the kid lost his mother tragically .... he has lived under the public eye scrutinising his every move, scrutinising his father and family..... and even bringing up all sort of embarrsing things about his mum and goodness knows what.... way i see it prnce harry gets to go do something for himself and his country and feels he can relax and be a lad...i have brothers his age and i know this is all harmless and private....what do we expect from our royals...still to be stuck in the 18th century?

So is avoiding the swear filter you chump. Please edit your post.


last post from me here, as these kinds of debates always lead nowhere, but your post above is probably the most interesting in the thread.

Firstly, the 'swear filter' is there to prevent profanity and abuse.

Secondly, my post contained neither profanity or abuse so it *should* be allowed.

Thirdly, in your world as evidenced in your quote above, you'd rather the word p* a ki was actually banned from *all* use. Never even to be mentioned in debate.
We have already reached the point that everyone uses the term - "The 'N' word" rather than the original word (which I assume is also banned by the filter) as it is so frowned upon it cannot even be mentioned in non-abusive debate!!

Re-read my post - especially the bit about Orwellian state. It seems I might be a chump to you, but you certainly are a fascist to me with oppressive views about what can and cannot be said, even if no abuse is intended but merely to stimulate or become involved in a debate.

The prince did not use the term as a term of abuse and it appears no offence was taken by anyone present. Therefore who are you, I, or anyone else to intervene in what is essentially a free country (just about).


Like I said, its sad to me that this is the BBC's top story today and the normal crowd have come out in force to "condemn his disgusting behaviour"... what a joke.
