Racism, on two accounts, (uncalled for accounts) is not something in which I can just lay off. I had black african cousins, a jewish background, and a pakistani aunt. I find racism appauling.

Wow, you have a large variety of backgrounds...

I'm just British... I do have a friend from Africa though.

I didn't know my grandad all that well, he died when I was very young. But from the stories, and pictures, and the things he left my family, it just proves how much of a fantastic man he was. So, on that case, I respect the jewish community, and I respect it alot.

Never, ever say anything like that, ever again. Got it?
ok, im sorry. didnt see that anyone would be offended by that. ill straighten up.

I see how it offended some of you, but come on a week ban, just let it be..I hear people use that term all the time, and yeah it might be offesive, but I dont think a week ban was really in need...He didnt mean it in a racial slur, he was just using it as a funny coment, I'm sure he didnt mean to offend anyone..
