In Topic: White Privilege

20 September 2017 - 12:00 PM

For those that agree with white privilege I recommend that you have a look at Hillbilly Elegy by JD Vance.

 

The guy that wrote it is in his late 30's and is really just recounting his experiences brought up by Mamaw and Papaw in Appalachian Kentucky.  The book is excellent in that it does not politicise but it does show how this particular part of white America has been marginalised and written off as 'white trash'.  These are exactly the kind of people that Trump speaks to.

 

White trash is every bit as racist and expression but has been accepted up to this point so who speaks up for them, perhaps they are hoping that Trump will in all of these places as well as the rust belt.

 

White privilege is a label like any other and in fact whilst white people have committed horrible acts all races and creeds have for their own kind as well as others so I think that the term is bullshit!


In Topic: St.Mirren in the Championship

what's your opinion of the two players getting sent off late on. Frustration, indiscipline, both ? 

Both, I believe.  Dunfermline were flying by all accounts but I think we made it easy for them.

Big game for your team this weekend H away to Dunfermline.....wish this one was on the telly as it should be a cracker. I'm thinking about this one for a good bet on 3 goals or more.


What a difference a season makes but a win here would be exceptional. It gives an idea of how far both team have come.

I think at least 3 goals is a good bet, we're averaging around 3 at home just now.

Forthcoming games against QoS is live on BBC Alba in the next couple of weeks, it's on a Sunday I think.

Next game for me is Brechin at the end of the month. That away strip must have magic powers!

In Topic: Aberdeen stadium (new)

I agree with Stewart Milne, Aberdeen need to look ahead given that the oil won't last forever.  They need a new stadium befitting of Scotland's second strongest team.

 

The last time I was at Pittodrie the only turnstile for away fans locked and it took 25 minutes to get in.  Guy at the turnstile was bemused at so many pissed off Saints fans whining at missing the game!
