I guess maybe this?








With the team so far behind I'd love to give some guys rest time, but I dont think thats possible (beyond Tolkin). 7 pts out of the next three games before window would be awesome.

...This is why calling someone a monkey or saying monkey business is racist. Even if the intent was to describe a person as a clown. The origin comes from a messed up passed. That is why I said monkey is a racist term when used to describe someone or a group of people.

OK - so this is where I think we differ - its our terminology. I think there is a difference between racism versus the use of insensitive terms that can have a racist history. You seem to have one bucket for both of those. 


To me, the intent of an individual is vital. Someone can use the most perfect, politically correct language and be effectively a segregationist neo-nazi in their beliefs and actions. Conversely, someone can use terrible words, but they genuinely judge each person as an individual. 


Is the use of insensitive terms ok? No its not, but its certainly forgivable and understandable. Is the desire to create a segregationist neo-nazi state ok? No its not, and it is not understandable, and forgivable only with significant growth and atonement.

Also, I think the Dutch use of monkey as a term for idiot is likely from racist origins way back when - the Dutch are famous racists... But is akin to saying someone is an indian giver - does Vanzier hate black people and meant tell the ref that the ref was as bad in his mind as a black person? That seems unlikely to me...
