The term "Snowflake" is stupid in it's own right.

to use it as a pejorative term to describe a group of people is moronic as snowflakes in themselves are all individually different.

however, I do agree there's a difference between racism through ignorance and Racism through malice.

Racism through ignorance is usually examples of good people who mean well say the wrong thing without realizing the damage it causes and wouldn't want to offend or upset anyone.

Racism through malice are examples of dangerous people who genuinely feel people of other races/creeds are not equal to them - these are the people that really need to be targeted.

Obviously all racism is bad but the intention behind the slip/statement is also extremely important and relevant
Snowflake is used as a pejorative term because it references the ease with which some people "melt" when perceiving an offence ... the inherent uniqueness of snowflakes wasn't really the point.

Racism is always a matter of intent, as is the use of any language, you can make almost any word sound offensive if spoken with that intent - "You Woolwich Tart" - when screamed loudly in someone's face the word Woolwich and the word Tart become offensive even though in normal language one is a district in London, the other a pastry casing.

It's similar with racial expressions, of course some words are almost taboo as they have no other meaning than racial - nigger, paki, chinky - however many other words black, slope, cracker only become racially offensive when used in a deliberate racial context

Much as all Utd players should be banned for just being Utd players - was the use of the word negrito by Cavani in any way meant to be racist? only he can know that, isn't the standard innocent until proven guilty?
 
Mark Goldbridge = fucking idiot. Acknowledges that Kane is world class but prefers Martial, Well, you can bloody keep him mate as Kane certainly isn't joining that shower.
 
My goodness are they a fragile bunch...



Cry me a fucking river, you have Bruno throwing himself to the ground every match giving you penalties. It's legitimately the only season they've been close to the top 4 last season and this.

Mental midgets.
 
Solskjaer is doomed - quality players or not his terrible basic manager failures are being exposed - a player avoids a 100% red card for the head-but yet Olle leaves him on the pitch? Did he not see every PSG player winding him up? His opposite number seeing the writing on the wall pulls Paredes after he's yellow carded then pulls Verratti for the same reason ...

Add to that not starting Pogba or Beek, then taking off Cavani with a goal required? yet another car crash day in Olle management.

It's those little detail that matters at this level and Ole has been shown to be out of depth.

His sub made no sense. So they're getting his forwards off for more midfielders to damage control (understandably as losing 1-2 instead of 1-3, they would still top of the group). Yet in the end, he subbed on more forwards, thus shuffle the midfield and the defense. Took Wan Bissaka off who has a bit of pace leaving 3 defenders who can't run playing a high line in the end!

In last minutes, he couldn't teach his cunts to be intelligent. Bruno hasn't got booked at all in CL this season. Why didn't he take one for the team on Neymar and stopped their counter? And Bruno had the nerve to do fucking flick to his teammates ,who surrounded by PSG players in the first place. Maguire was a mess. Got floored twice in the same sequence of play. First one is excusable, but the second one is pure donkey. Rafinha angle for a shot was narrowed. Most defenders could have read the situation and marked Neymar, instead of panicking and tripping.

Now their chance to secure the top even if they win their final game has become slim!

Plus instead of accepting the game was lost at 2-1 down with a man down , he decided to chase the game and ended up conceding a 3rd goal, so now PSG have the Superior head 2 head Tiebreaker.

Any label that reduces a diverse group of people into an homogenous entity is a fetishistic act of perversion whether it be 'snowflake,' 'gammon', 'nazi', etc, and says more about the person who chooses to 'label' than the group being demonised. Wanting to see 'sameness' where there is 'difference' is a innate trait of the human personality that we all wrestle with from cradle to grave.
 
The problem is what you regard as racism. In Scandinavia (and I guess in Southern America) there is no racial slur in calling each other by hair colour. Svarten / Negrito / 'Blackie' my simply refer to that, or some other feature which got nothing to do with racism. You guys call redheads for gingers or carrot tops. And often refer to it with negative distinctions like being aggressive. Ever thought of that being offensive?

Another example is your love for the word c*nt. That's a highly derogatory misogynistic term to call anyone and totally social unacceptable behaviour up in the nordics.

It's laughable if Cavani is fined or getting match banned for this, like HeroesAndVillains HeroesAndVillains says; get a fucking grip.

I find it depressing and hilarious that use of the word c*unt has become the norm amongst young people now, especially when they get so defensive about use of other words. They have no idea what they're tapping into, as one young woman said to me last year - 'well it just means vagina doesn't it?'
