    I love how he just beats his oponant to that underhook. Magically overcoming reaction time and that the striker has the shorter distance.

    Either way, it's a racist term .

    What if Indians invented it and named it?

    Agreed. Get me up over an 6-8' fence by force? You win. Heck, if you can manage to toss me up on top of the fence, I'll concede.

    I don't think a reference to another group - even if it's a false attribution - is necessarily racist.

    Everything is racist nowadays...

    Funfact though - in my year at school a Chinese burn became known for a while as a chin-bu.

    There was a Chinese kid in our year, and it was asked of him "is it just a burn to you, seeing as you're already Chinese?"

    His reply was along the lines of "I'm half Chinese, so it's more like a chin-bu".

    That's true. As a general statement, I agree with you.

    Oh, I agree.

    Plenty don't though... So it depends who you ask.

    For instance, did you know that me liking Chinese food is racism through cultural appropriation?


    I don't consider stuff like "Chinese burn" to be any more racist than calling a takeaway sweet and sour "Chinese food" - I mean, it may have been cooked by a Chinese person to a Chinese recipe, but that's not where it came from...

    Look guys . I'm not going to debate this. Terms like Indian burn are the same as saying you were gypped or that you jewed someone down in a negotiation, or that someone who does something dumb rode the short bus or is a tard.

    If you disagree with me, fine. It's okay . I'll judge you though. :)

    You forgot "window licker" and "scoper" ;)


    Yeah fine, it's not big or clever but let's be honest here, it's a damn sight funnier than a lynching.

    I (and society at large imo) have bigger things to worry about than an internet random (that's you, no offence) judging me for using, without malice or intent, decades old colloquialisms - so judge away if you like :headphone:

    I didn't say it was, just that perhaps it's not racist. We've had martial arts in the UK for a lot longer than a lot of other western countries so it's not impossible. It's possible too that 'Indian' actually refers to India the martial arts there were certainly known to the British from the 16th century CE onwards.

    I agree. That was my point. But... I am judging you. ;)

    Cool. I think in the USA, we can be pretty sure that up until a few decades ago, Indian did not refer to folks from India . Anymore, it's hit and miss .

    Sometimes, it's nice to know someone is thinking of you, even if it's to judge :D

    True story. When I was stationed in Germany, just got there to my first duty station, a buck sgt comes through the room and the conversation stops. He says, "oh you guys must have been talking about me." Tech sgt replies, "sgt. We don't even think about you when you're not around, much less talk about you."

    So yeah. I agree. That happened 30 years ago and I haven't forgotten it. :)

    How dare you!! I speak 'merican. :)

    I do like a good IPA, though I prefer our local, Washington hops to the British ones. :D123
