Don't worry Bird, if he's not offended someone else will be on his behalf.

The irony of this is, all the bleeding hearts are lactose intolerant vegans who dont eat cheese anyway.

I see it took 21 years or thereabouts for the name change to come about..... according to the Brisbane Times.

The biggest problem we have with some of our aboriginals, is they are never satisfied.
You give them something, they just want more.

The fellow who pushed for the change for 21 years, isn't happy, as the aboriginals weren't consulted on the new name.

oh, and some more.....

The former diplomat and academic, who now works as a social justice consultant, has suggested Pauls's French parent company Lactalis consider replacing the 'Smarter White' label, which has been used to sell low-fat milk since 2002.

'Aboriginal people are saying that there's an inference that it's for smart, white people, not for smart, black people,' Dr Hagan told Daily Mail Australia.

'There's a lot of Aboriginal people who take offence, who don't drink that milk because of the interference that it's 'smarter white'.'

And of course, in any culture, (thank fukk) we have the ones who do see through the bullShit.

Indigenous Alice Springs town councillor Jacinta Price described the call to rename Smarter White milk as 'utter nonsense'.

'I don't know a single Indigenous Australian who is offended at all by milk being called 'Smarter White',' she told Daily Mail Australia.

'Indigenous Australian have far greater issues to be concerned with than the name of a brand of cheese named after its founder or what's written on a carton of milk.'

Ms Price, who ran as a Country Liberal Party candidate at last year's federal election, said affluent activists 'whose lives are easy' were inventing issues to feel like victims instead of addressing family violence and sexual abuse in Aboriginal communities.

'I'd advise anyone who chooses to be offended by such a ridiculous proposition to assess their priorities,' she said.

And there lies the problem. The "true" indigenous people have got more things to worry about than petty rubbish thought up by white influenced "activists" with a chip on their shoulder.

He had me on his side with his Coon cheese research.

But not on this.  I'm sure there are other racist terms in those dictionaries. Redneck, honky, whitey, the negro slang word.

I think he lost a game getting outscored by a triple letter score.


The complaint with the Australian Human Rights Commission outlines the offensive words where at least eight points can be earned.
“That's just that's just the number of points from a word but if those words fall on triple points or double points - Then the overall score goes up again.” Dr Stephen Hagan told NITV News.

He's a dangerous prick this Hagen.

Runs around high fiving himself because he found another slur against his people.
Try helping with the violence, sexual abuse and the kids running out of control.

In a lot of cases, where the elders would bring them into line, they now struggle to get any respect or result.

This friggin flip is going off about 3 words being used in a game of fukkin scrabble.
I'll give him coon and boong as being perhaps, a tad rude.

Abo is short for aboriginal ya friggin flip...... what is racists about that.
Aussie is short for Australian.
Pom is short for the English.
Yank is short for American.
Tassie.....

The list goes on.

When we should be trying to be more as one, this turd is driving a wedge between the whites and the blacks.

He's a friggin racists himself, he does an ABC interview to do with an incident last year in Townsville.

No one has mentioned colour, until he questions the circumstances of the "white guy".
He is the one who brings colour into the forum, then cries he's the victim.

But did you notice what the article said about coon?

No mention at all of anything to do with derogatory names for Aborigines.

According to Collins Dictionary, coon is the abbreviation of raccoon, so he better head over to the US to have a go at Davy Crockett for wearing a coon skin hat! (& I wish him luck there!) >:D

So now we have a new catch-cry for a type of person.
 
We call Karen for ‘Karen is a pejorative term for women seeming to be entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is normal. The term also refers to memes depicting white women who use their privilege to demand their own way.’ (Wiki definition)

We can now call Hagan for ‘a person who focuses their time and energy on subjects that are frivolous but, for one reason or another, can have an impact on the general public, rather than expending the same energies on matters of national import.’

(Probably a better definition can be written, but my small mind can’t come up with more than this🤔)

On the subject of words in the Collins dictionary - I have a Readers digest dictionary which doesn’t list any of the three words on his scrabble board. It does however list whitey - a white person. This would mean that none of his words could be laid down in scrabble, if using a Readers Digest dictionary for word validation. Simple really, if you are not a bigot towards one race or another😇
