Re: The Irony Thread

what?

I meant (albeit very much not seriously!) the guy threw the banana skin at him in the hope that the footballer slipped over on it and injured himself and was therefore not able to continue the match and that there was clearly no racist intent.

Re: oh dear, what a shame.

I would save yourself some suffering. It's too big a leap for people who believe in capital punishment, to realise that revenge isn't justice. To realise, that there is no justice, and that these crimes, are all our responsibilty in some way. It's our society, we are in it, we can change it. The cr...

Re: oh dear, what a shame.
