    :LOL:

    I was pondering it. It's a very interesting point.

    "African" is itself not a racist or abusive term (African American) any more than "South American/Brazilian" or whatever.
    Although it is the modern way to counter any comments about certain races/religions with the demonising "racist".



    I suppose it was quickly jumped on because it was Roger so a safe bet that it was a racist comment.

    At first I thought easy Roger.
    Then Notch and I think Mr Black commented.

    I gave a bit of thought and it does stick out like sore thumb as an all white Indian cricket team would.

    Roger was only speaking the truth

    It is the modern world.
    I did not know so I googled the England basketball team - not unexpected.
    What about English boxers?

    Not a lot of white cricketers in India, I suppose, compaired to over a billion Indians.

    He might have been but we know what he is like.

    The Question keeps being asked why are there not many Black. Football managers. Maybe because they are not good at it!! The same as white people are generally not good Basketball players. I should point out at this stage that there are not many good English football managers. Yet Scots have been historically good.

    Why are the Vietnamese the best nail technicians.

    I would like to see more White heterosexual English male nail technicians. I think 1 in 10 all future interviews for Nail technicians should be White heterosexual English males

    If I were to walk into your house to quote a new boiler, with dirty un-manacured hands. What would you think???


    I will add that I'm fluent in Vietnamese
