“Actually, in the centuries before fast food and TV there were not so many plus size people. There was even a pre-Kardashian epoch when ladies' bottoms had to be accentuated with an interlaced structure under their frocks.”

“Coming across the mind-set of certain Americans and their attitude toward Italy and foreigners in general… that's one of the most stimulating things of any Amanda Knox thread.”

steelebook on Nov 2, 2013 at 11:53:15

“Then you might also be interested in the "mind-set" of Italians in Perugia, the small mountain town where the University for foreigners is located and where Ms Knox was on trial. I attended the Universite per Stranieri several years ago myself and was rather taken aback by the attitudes (mind-sets) of the Italians there and in some other Italian cities (Brescia, Milano, et al) toward foreigners, particularly those from the Middle-East, North Africa, and--yes--Americans. Hostility was apparent in many instances. Given the bias against Americans in Perugia on the part of many townspeople and public officials there, for me the charges brought against Ms Knox by the Italian court were to say the least suspect. I've lived in France and Ireland, traveled extensively in Germany and other European countries, but I've found that the Italians are pretty singular in their dislike of Americans--exceeding the animosity even some French (and I really like the French by and large) exhibit toward foreigners.”

“I note once again a poster changing the subject when pressed to show evidence the accused were present in the murder room at the time of the murder.  Or in the apartment.  Or in the building.  Or even in the neighborhood. 

vielmannstein on Nov 2, 2013 at 11:36:43

“I haven't seen the posts you speak of, but this case has resulted in the deserved backlash that the Italian justice system rightly deserves. And don't forget that the Italian media frenzy to convict Knox and to demonize even Clinton when she had said or done nothing in response to the convictions, well, these things shouldn't be forgotten.”

“"gal" is another spelling for "girl". No grown woman of any race is a girl, but is that offensive?”

“Camels dressed as humans never upset anybody... Why are chimps considered offensive? Because their fur is dark?”

JOHNMEDLIN on Oct 25, 2013 at 07:41:45

“No. I think you are seriously confused, so I will try to explain without demeaning you in any way. Monkey was a slur attached to black people pretty universally. People of African decent were believed, understand I really mean believed, to be genetically inferior to whites. They were referred to as monkeys by good Christians who truly believed that blacks were genetically closer related to monkeys than humans. That in fact, black people had no souls and were animals. This belief existed for decades. And still does today. Many white supremist Christian organizations still preach this nonsense during sermons. First church of Christ Christian comes to mind. Adam and Eve were pure bloods. Those that went into the jungle to raise families were believed to have sex with monkeys creating a half breed. The Black man. Soulless and an abomination. So that is why so many southerners make comics of our first family characterized as monkeys and why this is an offensive comment. I hope that helped you to better understand. There is a lot for the world to be ashamed of. And this is one of them”
