USC Professor Who Used Chinese Word That Sounds Like English Slur ‘Not Dismissed Nor Suspended,’ Admin Says

 

After an online petition to “Re-instate USC Marshall Professor Greg Patton” collected more than 11,000 signatures and a group of more than 100 global alumni signed a letter criticizing the university’s treatment of Patton, dean Geoff Garrett sent an email to Marshall staff on Wednesday saying that he wanted to “offer some clarification about the situation,” because “some of the reporting about the situation has been inaccurate.”

Considering that I do not speak Chinese, and that I am teaching English to my students, I doubt that it would ever come up in a classroom discussion.

Glass hearted snowflakes are going to be triggered by absolutely anything and everything. It's a no-win so I just don't care whether anyone is offended. And Chinese words that bear some resemblance to an English word is a bit funny for the students... Vis-a-versa too. Over-sensitive soft cocks can shove their personal pronouns up their collective arses and f@ck off.

Fun fact: in Cantonese, the verb for taking a shit sounds almost the same as Aussie.... lol

British Man Arrested For Not Wearing Mask Asks Cops Where They Were During BLM Riots

"You're all gonna be under a bloody dictatorship! ...Bet you lot weren't up in London for the f**king BLM...”

 

 

A video out of the UK shows a man being arrested outside a Starbucks for not wearing a mask while asking police officers where they were during multiple Black Lives Matter demonstrations and riots during which coronavirus rules were ignored.

“It takes two of you to arrest a 72-year-old man, what a pair of fucking heroes,” the man states as he is being cuffed.

“Bet you lot weren’t up in London for the fucking BLM,” he adds, before telling officers, “I don’t like being told I’ve got to wear a mask!”

The man then asks the officers if they bowed for BLM.

“This is what’s going to happen to all of you soon, you’re all gonna be under a bloody dictatorship.in about 6 months time you’ll all be getting this!” the man tells observers.

As we highlighted earlier this month, Piers Corbyn, the 73-year-old organizer of a ‘Unite For Freedom’ anti-lockdown protest, was arrested and fined £10,000.

 

However, organizers of Black Lives Matter protests in London have not been arrested or fined, with some officers even bowing in front of them despite numerous violent attacks on police by BLM rioters.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
