I'm not certain that even the RFL have been able to decide whether Polynesia is race or a place, and I'm worried now that they might have just opened themselves up to a whole raft of claims/reports, based on their press release.

The first paragraph reads: That now means that nationality is classed equally with race?

So calling (for instance) Brian Carney a silly Irish {insert insult here}, or an Aussie calling someone a Pommy {insult}, etc. would be deemed equally offensive to the use of black/n****r/p*ki ???

Surely that can't be right?

Lifting the mood - Surely re-educating Clubb should be fairly simple.
Teach him to use single-word insults, or double-word if he REALLY means it.

In other words, stick to either "c***" or "fxxxing cxxx".

No one has been enslaved, treated as a second class citizen, denied job opportunities etc for being Australian or British. They have, and still do, suffer that for being Polynesian, black etc. That's the difference.

Or - and seeing as the post you replied to mentioned it - Being Irish

As I say - Technically a very difficult subject to discuss as some will always say "What about this or what about that".
At the risk of stoking up a whole can of worms from this time last year regarding BLM etc. I just think we should listen more to people who have experienced it, rather than listening to people who are just tired of listening to the response to it.

No it isn't the difference.

You can't on one hand say it's ok to say British, Pommy, White etc before the C word and then argue it's not ok to say black, Polynesian, Asian etc before it.

You equally can't be denied a job because of your skin colour (regardless of what it is).

Equality means exactly what it says.

Can you give any evidence to support your claim that people are STILL being enslaved or treated as second class citizens for being any ethnicity other than white?

I’m sure they have in the past, I’m no historian, but I’m pretty sure every nation/race on earth has been oppressed at some point in time.

There’s a lot of evidence that white people are actually the ones being denied job opportunities, university places etc. in order to fill some diversity quota, all the while being told that they have “white privilege” and are inherently racist.

You seriously think people aren't denied jobs because of their skin colour? Wow! I'm not saying it should happen or that people openly advertise the fact, but it absolutely does happen. Someone calls me a pommy and it means bugger all to me, it's not associated with any discrimination me or my ancestors have suffered. I've never had it shouted across the street at me, no one has ever attacked me or anyone I've ever met for being White British. That's not the same as insults about being Polynesian, black etc. Pretty much everyone from those backgrounds living here has been through that kind of thing. That's the difference.

Besides all that, I've never heard anyone try to use white or pommy as an insult anyway. I've heard lots of people bring it up when they try to claim we have it just as bad, but I've never actually seen it happen, despite being white and spending a lot of time around antipodeans through rugby.

Hope your mate is OK. Maybe try explaining to him that we might theoretically get called poms at some point, and that due to diversity quotas we only have 92% of university places. That should hopefully make him realise how good he has it.

I'm not saying that at all, so please don't put words in my mouth.

I am saying that you've completely misunderstood the OP's point. He's saying they've opened themselves up to a potential mind field.

The RFL have drawn a line in the sand and said that you can't use what they describe as "unacceptable language based on national or ethnic origin". I'm all for this, but it does now mean that you can't insert any word based off national or ethnic origins before an insult - that means no Polynesian and no British, Aussie etc too. As much as I understand the sentiment, you can't have it one way and not the other.

Hypothetical situation, but if someone in work is sacked for saying what Clubb has said then that's the precedent. If the next day someone comes in and says "I'm sick of all you white people..." Then they are going to get sacked too. That's the way the law is written - it's equality for everyone not to be discriminated against. Not just those from minority backgrounds. If they didn't sack the 2nd person, then it's also discrimination against the first person etc.

The RFL now, as governing body, have a duty to charge anyone that uses "unacceptable language based on national or ethnic origin". If they don't then, ironically, Clubb could have a claim against them for discrimination.

Some people need to learn their history where slavery is concerned as most of the slavery over the centuries has been carried out by people of Africa, Asian and South America countries and not just the period of the cotton and Sugar trade involving our country, Africa and the USA/West Indies in the 18th century.

But what else do you expect when history is no longer taught in education.

p.s. Who do the people who want to pull down statutes think built the pyramids?
