Forgive me in turn for being picky..
I have a lot of respect for you RP, even if we don't agree on everything, I do respect your opinion and your contribution to this forum.
Being a moderator is often a thankless job and the role of enforcing rules without being an ahole about it is much more of a tightrope walk than most people understand.
I considered using the term caucasian, but I am talking about all the separate strands of caucasians. In fact I think the best way to describe it would be to talk about Asian, now this ethic group is regionally based, and of course is based on the geographic region of Asia, so Indians and Pakistanis are considered Asian as are Chinese and Japanese etc etc.
Talking about pure Asian blood is a bit silly because Asian blood is so diverse. You can talk about pure... well I don't like to use the term pure, because all blood is pure, that is to say there is no such thing as impure blood, but you can talk about someone who is ethnicly chinese that does not have blood relatives of any other ethnicity, and someone who has a chinese parent and a Japanese parent... technically still asian, but in racist terms not "pure blood".
In Europe you have white supremacists who think White Europeans are one group, but there are Slavs and Nordic and Germanic groups Anglo Saxons etc etc and the mixes of those groups are technically mixed bloods.
The point I was trying to make was that with all the invasions and resettlements and changes in Europe, what they call pure white blood is all a mongrel mix, and they are so mixed up that no one there identifies themselves in ethnic terms, they use national terms.
Brits call themselves Brits, not anglo saxons.
In some regions ethnicity is still sadly important... most notably in war zones like the former Yugoslavia which as we all know fragmented on ethnic lines, so you have the Slavic Serbs and the Albanians opposed to each other, not over politics, but over blood.
BTW I would add in Lulldapulls defence that Mongrel perhaps doesn't have the negative implications in New Zealand and Australia that it seems to have elsewhere.
Australian sportsmen that succeed and that have a lot of aggression to win at all costs are said to have a lot of mongrel in them, which is seen as a good thing.
Also the fact that he is posting here and that he is looking for a new club suggests that while they might have stupid beliefs, he disagrees, and does not accept their silly ideas.
The Russians being half asians is unfortunately part of the stupid stereotypical British heritage of our countries, and is completely racist... and of course rubbish, and even stupid and actually wrong.
Rubbish because it is no more true than saying that Britain "owning" India makes Britons half Indian, or Britons controlling China all those years makes them half Chinese.
And stupid because even if it were true, so what? What exactly is wrong with being half or even fully asian?
And wrong because the Russian Federation is made up of hundreds of ethnic groups, most of whom would be considered caucasian... including caucasians!
Don't you think it is totally hipocritical calling a group halfbreeds and then identifying yourself as one of them by calling yourself caucasian... they are idiots.
The problem Britain has with Russia has nothing to do with communism and is basically a rival hatred that goes back several centuries.
Britain and Russia were both imperial powers, and while Britain was a naval power Russia was largely a land power. The main point of contention was that Britain feared Russian interference in India and her other colonies, and that fear was passed on to those colonies.
Here in New Zealand we built port defences in many of our major ports, and they weren't to use against the Germans or Japanese, they were to use against the Russians and were built well before WWI in most cases.
If you look at the records of Thaddius Von Bellingshousen (spelling) we not only had nothing to fear, but we should have embraced a guy that at a time when ships with 500 people on board left England and arrived in the US with 50% casualties to scurvy, managed to sail around the world, sight the continent of Antarctica for the first time and return home without losing a single sailor, while writing the manual for the Russian Navy on how to operate on the high seas... it is disappointing he is not as famous as he should be.
Again I apologise if I have offended anyone... race is a tricky subject, and no you are not being picky RP, in a topic like this it is important that all posters... from raw recruit to colonel remembers the rules and remembers a little respect for others.
