    Default Re: Golliwogs are harmless

    Did A search on Gollywog on Google and came across this https://english.stackexchange.com/qu...iwog-come-from

    Seems to be possibly innocently invented?? and then adopted as a derogatory term for just about any non Caucasian .

    Of course Racist Caucasians would see nothing offensive about this, and lets face it, the Great British Empire, before the two world wars, probably had to have the greatest collection on long noses to look down that has ever been!
    Do you think we may have inherited a bit of this?

    to suggest that they are racist is at least wrong-headed, possibly far worse, have you looked deeply within yourself to find your inner Trump?
    I made my point Dave and you have reinforced it for me.

    Sadly Clive the only thing reinforced in this is your underlying racism.
    Attempting to defend the indefensible like you do, is par for the course for a certain type of
    social dinosaur. I recommend you try harder to move with the times, instead of
    continuing with this ridiculous 1930s style racist rubbish.

    I have some difficulty in working out if you really believe what you say Dave or if you are just trolling again.
    Either way you are quite entiltled to your opinion just as others are entitled to theirs have a nice day.

    What about them Goliwogs calling us Honkies?

    I suppose that’s OK.

    I reckon leave the matter in the capable hands of the Slope’s, Dago’s, and Wogs.

    Why not offend everyone and give the Bleeding Heart, Hand Wringing, Tree Huggers something to else to complain about.

    Anyway, if all else fails, the Kumar’s at No. 42 will sort it out.

    I would like to see what a white Gollywog looks like. Would they dye I wonder? PJ
    Deafness.
    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    I’m sorry PJ, but if you had a White Golliwog that would make you a “Racist White Supremacist” in the eyes of the “PC Protest Movement”.
