A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

That is not the issue. Your combative contentiousness is.

Blues. Still preaching?
Do you not understand how condescending you are? How can you now possibily infer anything about what I wrote on that masters forum? People like you stifle any discussion and make redress of injustice impossible. I politely wrote on that masters athletics forum that the suspended athlete and his USA relay teammates should return their gold medals. And I took measures quietly offline to ensure that it happened. Ask the WMA President.
As to the racist terminology business, you are bashing on open doors. You must understand that I have taken onboard everything you said.
However I would like to hear from a non-white that he would prefer to be called a "Non-White" and not a "Colored." That is because for every image you produce juxtaposing "Whites" and "Coloreds" in the US, I can produce an equivalently disgraceful image juxtaposing "Whites" and "Non-Whites" in apartheid South Africa. So as an inocent abroad, I honestly do not see any progress in being called a "Non-White" instead of "Colored." Get it?
Anyway you can have the last word. Try to keep it on topic.

Hmmm. I think I might qualify for non-white. Although my Mum is white from Blackheath, London my father is Maori; maybe off-white is a better description.
However,I think I will pass on this debate as I have enough on my hands at the moment going backwards and forwards with Marlow on the pros and cons of paid consensual enjoyments; or in current popular terminology, "favors".

Let's leave it at this: the use of the term "colored" is completely out of bounds. We'll cut Mr. T some slack for being culturally unaware, but any repeat performance is a life ban.
It's an abbhorent term on these shores and will not be tolerated.
