He doesnt have a problem with asians per se, it is the fact they coincidentally have money, drive fast cars like @rseholes and coincidentally are asian.
Shame on you Hash
The roots of the post (bad driving/a collection of exotic cars/a bit of fun re the SLS) are clear.
Any racial overtone is in your tiny mind.
I've nothing else to add - I don't have time for fools.
Hello HR,You mention the laughing, smiling young Asian lads in the second line of your post. Its easy to see why this could have a racial overtone - that was my instinct when I read it. If the point was the cars and the driving and not the race of the drivers, then why mention it?
As a casual observer, a racial overtone is the first thing that comes to mind. Probably wise not to bring up race in a vague/questionable context like this.
I read your thread clearly a number of times, so understand what you're saying entirely. I just think that the mention of race was irrelevant giving the context, unless it was meant to be highlighted as the point of the thread, which it could easily have been interpreted as from the way it was written. You said it was setting a scene, so I'd ask myself, what sort of scene was it setting to mention the guys were Asian - would the scene have been different if they guys were white or black? If a journalist had written it, the PC among us would have been up in arms. As you suggest, its all in the interpretation and semantics, and in this instance, you'll understand why people could get annoyed.Hello HR,
I thought the rest of line two explained my reasoning clearly, which is why I included it.
The drivers being Asian was simply a fact, as was the time of day, the photo of the cars, and the location, all designed to set the scene for the thread.
If anyone analyses enough they will read what they want to read.
Those that know me will know this isn't a race related thread and I will not be driven down that road (no pun intended) on a public forum.
