    I'm not a fan of the royal family but I do like harry. He's as normal as one of them can be and cocks up in the same ways as the rest of us by suffering from foot in mouth disease. Unfortunately he is always going to get caught out for it bless him:rolleyes: I don't think he is racist however I do think that he is trying so hard to say the right thing that the wrong thing comes out and most of us have been there:oops:

    Reminds me of a Roy Chubby Brown quote,
    Can someone explain this?
    When you're from Greece you're a Greek,
    When you're from Turkey you're a Turk,
    When you're from Sweden you're a Swede,
    When you're from Afghanistan you're an Afghan,
    So how come if you're from Pakistan you are not a ....... ****???

    Has harold gone back on the weed?

    I think it's more due to the past use of it and the context in which it was used, if someone used the word in a derogatory way, then that was repeated in use it then becomes a derogatory word which is being used because of race, but personally I think the origins of it being racist are all to do with the context the word was used...

    Maybe one day Turk might be seen as racist... who knows?

    It might help the kicker, but how does it help to inject common sense which seemingly Harry at the very least is lacking?

    Newsflash, just because I'm indian doesn't mean I own a [corner] shop and all my children are lawyers and doctors.

    Not racist, just being an idiot in my opinion.
