That's hardly the same thing. A saloon and a tap room. Or eating and drinking areas.

The suggestion here is different races have different rooms in pubs

Is it? I must have missed that specific post. I saw some stuff about 'Pakis' but as I think you pointed out, muslims don't do alcohol.

I don't think race has ever been an issue in pubs to my knowledge.
And on the whole I don't think they were ever establishments for posh people, so they have only ever really been about the working and middles classes.

Me neither.

I quote;
"None of which justifies the "voluntary segregation" of whites and Paki's in English pubs."

If I was French I'd do the shrugging shoulders thing.

'Voluntary segregation" in as much as that on the whole people from Pakistan aren't really typical pub customers for the reasons stated. It's a generalisation of course and I'm sure there are plenty of brits of Punjabi origin who like a pint and I'm equally sure that there are probably the odd one or two pubs where they wouldn't be welcomed, but there's no segregation.

The general assumption here seems to be that "Paki's" [my attempt at impersonating an English racist] and all Brits of Middle Eastern or Western Asian descent are devout Muslims who would never enter a pub or touch a drop of alcohol. That is quite comical... talk about your racist stereotypes. Some of you guys really don't get around much, do you?

That thread seems to have disappeared. I remember a few lines from Corporate whore's posts and nothing comes up in a search.

Do you think it's anything like the assumption that all African American women are beaming, glowing unrepressed goddesses leaving the uptight people - not - of - colour trembling in their wake or that all African American people make the workplace bearable through their loving personalities?

Or are generalisations OK, as long as they're seen to be flattering to the subjects involved?

Generalizations are okay (although I was talking about my own personal perspective there, not making a generalization) as long as they piss-off "Minnie The Snotty Narcisister" who takes personal offense at absolutely EVERYTHING!!! :lol:

Blimey!
Quite glad I wasn't around for this one!
Incidentally I do remember the Matt W 'segregation' post and what he said was comprehensively shown to be nonsense. Odd to see it dredged up years later as an incontrovertible 'fact.

I actually heard a story yesterday about a patient's mum (who was a big african lady) who would give out big hugs everytime the doctors went in to go see her and her kids. So, the elderly skinny doctor told me, she and her team would often go visit her if they "felt they needed a cuddle".
And me, being South African, thought just how much I miss that culture. I'm obviously a racist.
