Swallow has to be laden if he's shooting at sand. Unless it's the swallow being fired. Not sure how much sand it would take to stop a swallow.

Depends on the GSM of the swallow. And if it's a builders swallow or not.

Man Utd sign Stormzy
But others claimed it was a genuine mistake, with one person saying: “Not racism. If a black person said two white people look the same it’s not racist.”

Darryl Lindo replied: “Difference is it wouldn’t happen tho bro.”

Then some pompous nitwit writes some racist claptrap about it for the independent... :yeahright: It's ironic that so many people crusading for equality fall into the trap of isolating a whole group of people under the stereotype they're supposedly trying to break down. And just don't see it.


As for Diane Abbott, she receives abuse because she's an obnoxious, arrogant politician who regularly shows herself up as being an incompetent loud mouth. If people feel they can get away with having a pop at her, then they'll do it because some are nasty like that. And if they know a particular form of abuse really gets to her, then that's what they're likely to use. So the more she makes an issue of people using racist slurs against her, the more racist slurs she'll receive. However, anyone taking offence at her repeating what's offended her really has lost all perspective. There should be no words that are unutterable, the offence lies in the context in which they are used.

So in short, there's a lot of fucking idiots out there... :D

I'm not sure I agree with the sentiment that comes from saying the more she complains about receiving racist abuse the more she'll get; whilst pricks might pick up on that, it really isn't right.

I'm 100% sure it's not what you mean, but the way you put it across there makes it seem like it's her own doing that she'll get more racism against her.

But yeah, lots of idiots.

But what's "right" doesn't come into it. Stealing isn't "right", but you're inviting trouble if you leave your car unlocked with the keys in the ignition... Going on telly to complain that you keep having your car stolen isn't going to dissuade the thieves, just bring it to their attention that you're an easy target. There's some rather foolish thinking crept into society where victims are viewed as faultless as though common sense should be disregarded because they don't deserve having something bad happen to them. Just because the ultimate blame lies with the perpetrator, it doesn't mean it's not our responsibility to take care of ourselves.
