So you think choice of sport is born of racial determinism.If you’re of the belief that kids in general of all backgrounds share the same interests & physical traits then you are divorced from reality
That’s not racist or some right wing trope & it doesn’t make one better than the other
It’s just life
lolI could go on about certain sports are more popular in certain countries and communities due to colonialism and to representation and identification (which is why representation its important - kids have heroes) but I'm posting from my phone and tbh I don't think you're really worth the effort.
The fact you think it's okay for people to have the same thoughts as Vaughan because England isn't so 'English' anymore speaks volumes to me.
Feel your painOne of my twins is vegan, to make matters even more complicated her twin sister is vegetarian.
Cooking dinner is a right bloody faff now. So for once you are spot on.
When you are tweeting stuff that is inclined towards racism but then claim it was just to get reaction or attention that's worse than being outright racist. An apt example of the wrong toy (twitter) falling in the hands of a low IQ guy.Vaughan tweets stuff hoping for a reaction
If you think Vaughan was innocently making a neutral take on a statistical change then you're either naive or willfully ignorant. Which is backed up by the fact you think what is essentially a PR money making exercise in releasing a book cancels out what seems to be his true feelings made in the comfort of a cricketing clique at a racist club.lol
Once again, it’s possible to discuss demographic changes without being racist
50% of the residents in my street are of Asian descent and relatively new to the area
That’s an observation on how the area has changed
I couldn’t give a flying **** so long as they’re decent people & the same would apply whether they were white, black, green or extra terrestrial lizard beings
That’s an opinion
See how easy it is
Vaughan tweets stuff hoping for a reaction
The comments he made in the dressing room don’t appear to me to be a dog whistle when read in conjunction with his book
Nobody can accuse Vaughan of being smartWhen you are tweeting stuff that is inclined towards racism but then claim it was just to get reaction or attention that's worse than being outright racist. An apt example of the wrong toy (twitter) falling in the hands of a low IQ guy.
Now do Root, who not only shared a dressing room but a house with BallanceIf you think Vaughan was innocently making a neutral take on a statistical change then you're either naive or willfully ignorant.

This is one of the classical stereotypes that don't hold muster on a racial scale. The question becomes are people who are willing to give up the life they know, to move to a more hostile social environment just to try create a better life for their kids, more likely, in general, to be tougher parents on many levels. That does not make it a racial thing. That's about determination. Many people head overseas and head back home quickly because it was to much of a change for them. People don't like change, people given a choice largely stay put throughout their life. Of course then as an outsider when you see so many people of a certain racial group behave in a certain manner you start attributing that behavior to that racial group, rather than considering the specifics of the people themselves. This is how racial profiling comes about (and fails under scrutiny) because as people it is easy to look for the simple factors like skin colour to correlate observed behavior. Negative or positive.From my personal experiences and observations, I tend to align myself with many of Social's comments. When teaching I found the majority of Asian students pursued academia rather than sporting activities. This was very evident on visits to the local library. The majority of the those in the library were young Asians in what appeared to be study groups while, looking out the window one could see that the majority of those playing sport on the adjacent oval appeared to be of Anglo Saxon decent.
Much of this I would attribute to parental pressure as Asian parents seemed to (and I'm generalising here) have higher expectations in terms of academic achievement.
