any one else on here who speaks welsh?
or know any words of welsh?
or failing that......
anyone want to learn the rude words in welsh?



we've no ancestral halls, no haughty portraits on our walls, no family monuments at all, unless it's my cousin sheila's stupendous clevage.

When I was in Llanberis (been there 3 times- I love Snowdonia!) I learned what "Croeso" mean :) But that's it :)

ahh you were taught by a nice person then.

when i was in lampeter, mid wales, i met some chap in a pub
who had been taught by a local mischief maker [who shall remain nameless here] that 'hello' in welsh is 'Bronnau hyfryd'.

it actually means 'lovely breasts' he he

i asked if he'd tried out his new welsh phrase in the town.
he said 'yes i said it to the old lady in the newspaper shop this morning, but she just gave me a strange look'


'maybe it was your accent' i said to him

to which he replied ' yeah probably was.'

Dudley is Welsh, so is allowed in the same way that coloured rappers may use the N word but the rest of us can't.

no he's not allowed. self deprecation is still racism if ANYONE finds it offensive. Your statement would claim that it's impossible to make a racist statement about your own people - that's incorrect

I am from Wales and take no offence at earlier remarks.
Touched on this subject before and it is called having a sense of humour.Most British people seem to have one but some do not(usually liberals).
I work for a Bristol firm and put up with sort of thing all the time,I just call them carrot crunchers.No offence is ever meant or taken.I would rather work in that type of enviroment than a climate of fear for saying the wrong thing to the wrong person.

and while i agree in principle with much of the sentiments stated...my (ex) boss lost his job two years ago - for EXACTLY THAT kind of 'harmless banter' - as i said - it's racism if ANYONE (regardless of race) finds it offensive. In my boss' case someone clearly did, and reported him - it even made the local daily papers - and it cost him his job and a very comfortable way of life

You are right Bren, you can't say that sort of thing in the work environment. You are only safe in making jokes around your friends and such. You never know who your comments can offend so it's best to keep them to yourself unless you are completely sure you won't offend someone and lose your job or a friend over what you say. It would be good if more people would lighten up though.

Your the dickhead mate.

How can someone be racist towards their own people? LOL. If a black gut disses his fellow niggers, is that racist?

please don't call me a 'dickhead' - the definition of a racist incident is: any comment or action that may cause racial offence to any individual regardless of whether they belong to the targetted racial group.

i ahve spoken up, because i have witnessed and had to give evidence at the investigation that cost my boss his job - i guess WE ALL have to learn one way or another, mine was quite painful - i hope YOURS isn't so!!!

i hope the following - which i found among thousands of internet pages available will help you in future:

++++++++++++++++++++++++
WHOSE JOB IS IT?
At times, many of us who are by-standers or not members of the group being targeted by an oppression have trouble embracing the idea that it may actually be our job to speak up. We are hesitant to create a conflict or
make others uncomfortable. However, we need to remember:
1) how hostile, oppressive or frightening it might feel to be a member of the targeted group hearing these words or being affected by this action
2) that there is virtually no way to avoid making someone uncomfortable if you really are going to
identify and address and incident of racism, sexism, homophobia or oppression
3) that sometimes the only way we learn or change is by being pushed out of our comfort zones so that we stop to evaluate why we are uncomfortable or why someone we know or don't know considers our action so significant that they would take the effort to challenge it
We suggest that you find a friend and PRACTICE this a bit on each other. Invent a scenario like two friends talking and one telling a bad joke. Go through the steps and see how it feels both to interrupt and be interrupted.
Talk about it with your partner and with others. You can even ask for training for yourself or for your workplace, school, church or club. (See below for some resources.)
If we are to end an oppression we feel ourselves, we will often have to do more than just survive the inequities and prejudice we face everyday. When we are able, we will have organize and educate ourselves and our allies to make change.
Ending the oppression of others IS our job, especially when we have the privilege and resources to do so. To be a good ally, one has to both listen and take action. Think how the world would change... or even just how your own town would change if we all started challenging oppression and teaching our family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to do the same.
