My comment stating "racist appeal" directed towards you was in regards to this comment you made.Hi TC, I'm sorry your feelings were hurt. Let's start with a clean slate. You are not racist, and have no racist thoughts, beliefs, nor actions.
I'm racist, although I don't want to be. It's unrealistic to think I'm immune to the culture of my country. But maybe you're the exception that proves the rule.
Nevertheless, your preference to avoid players with tattoos indirectly discriminates against those who are expected to get tattoos as part of their religious or cultural heritage, notably some Pasifika players.
Meanwhile, as you're (quite appropriately) a vocal opponent of misquoting, kindly point to where I said you were racist. (If it helps, our recent exchange on the subject starts here, from around post #74 to 165)
Never once in my comments have i said i "dislike" Polynesians with neck tattoos i have always stated in the general sense of tattoos as a whole. By stating a dislike for an entire race is racism, how else can one take that comment, especially when i never once stated what you said----you just made up the comment based off your "views" of me.Hmm. Misogynist, tick, dislikes gays, tick, and polynesians with neck tattoos, tick ...
I don't think i quoted you calling me a racist, what i said is "find a racist comment i made and quote it" in response to your post 74 (because you made it out about race and specifically Polynesians) along with quoting anything i said about tattoos that specified Polynesians.
Another poster off the back of your "good work" has run with your impressions and called me as "clearly racist" by my comments here-----which my comments have not been racist at all.
I have never stated "i was not racist" i have stated that i have not made racist comments here or stated any particular race in my comments to warrant such a label(well other than promoting Polynesians as superior in recovery times and explosiveness) which is not what you were referencing so has nothing to do with this point. Just stating to be "Technically Correct" that this viewpoint could be used against me if used in "the wrong context".
