I really care little about emoticons and other crap. The only thread that you came across a being naive to me was that Rock Against Racism one. I lived through that era and lost friends to the stupidity and naivety of racism so it really means something to me.
Looking back now, racism, homophobia, sexism (the list goes on) they were all the norm. You only have to watch any UK sitcom from that era to see that. Alternatively just ask one of the ex BBC employees currently serving time for such behaviour. Speaking out against racism was a big thing, it was far easier and more socially acceptable to be a racist, sexist, homophobic bigot. With that back drop it is hardly any wonder that the place was so violent.
Going to school, living in a town, supporting a football team, following a fashion or band made you a member of several tribes and all tribes had to fight each other at every opportunity. Sometimes it got complicated working out which side you were on in the fight. If only we learnt about Venn diagrams in maths life would have been much easier.

Zip to the 26m mark for the SCTV take on To Sir With Love (with Bob Geldof before he discovered horrible charity singles).
Endut! Hoch Hech!

I feel that, had he lived, John Lennon would have loved Donkey Kong.

Sadly we live in a reversal of those times. With people afraid to call a black man "black" with political correctness gone stupid. Those racists have never and will never go away and yet they still hide behind OUR national flag. The flag of democracy and acceptance to all.

Not convinced that the times are completely reversed. Ask a young black guy how often he gets stopped and searched by the police in a week and it'll probably tell a different story.

That's a flag to be proud of, I really like the idea of thinking of it like that.

Yeah I didn't put that across as well as I needed to. I am coming at it from the point of view where people who used racism in hushed tones are now hiding behind today's political correctness. Too afraid to even acknowledge the term of someones color in speech. People are proud of what and who they are and rightly so. So please don't deny them of it.
