    So, the next time you see a guy walking down the street and holding a sign that says "RACISM," you'll know exactly what he has in mind. :rolleyes:

    I think the point is the Proppie thought someone was being racist.

    This is quite the passive aggressive attempt, being that I still don't know who was being racist. Point something out, man. Don't just say "RACISM". It's just as bad as people who are racist and claim they're not and patronize you. >_>

    You think but don't know. It is equally possible that he saw someone claiming racism in a situation he felt wasn't racist. Bigotry and racism can be related, but sometimes are not.

    You are right about this being passive aggression. Then again, he did manage to get his thread active. An explanation now would be nice.

    That's what I want, this thread would make much more sense to me if the OP would give an explanation.

    Meniscus had this zen quote in the Ass Sniffing thread but I thought appropriate for this thread:​
    There is pleasure to be found in the smell of our shit.

    - Daido Roshi
    (Thanks Meniscus, now it will be stuck in MY head for 14 years.:smile: )​
