Welcome to Empirical Purple

A blog by Simon Brady to cover a surprisingly wide range of geekiness, in a combination that no-one else does quite the same way. Probably. Either that, or it'll just be Simon talking about the likes of Football (usually the Soccer variety), PC & Tabletop Gaming, WWE, Movies, Music and occasionally even my actual job of Graphic Design, depending on what I'm up to in the world.

Do People Still Do This?

By which I mean racially abuse each other.

Well, of course, the answer is quite clearly 'yes they still do'. Americans are still fat and ignorant, the French surrender a lot, Nigerian businessmen want to trick you out of your money, and the Brits - specifically the English - still think they are entitled to rule the world with their horrid dentistry.

Not the most stinging of comments, it's true, but those are the harshest national & racial slurs I know. Honest.

So Manchester United captain Patrice Evra has alleged that Liverpool's Uruguayan sensation Luis Suarez has said 'a certain word' to him a number of times during the 1-1 draw between the two sides at the weekend.

Chav?

Manc?

Frog?

Oh, you mean his skin colour and racial heritage? Wow, that's pretty pathetic, boiling an insult down to 'herp derp your epidermis has different tone to me LOL'.

There are plenty of things to try and rile young Patrice with. The futility of his attempt at a goatee beard, the slide in rankings of his national side of which he's a part, the five European Cups that his club team haven't won ('yet', which I have to say to be balanced), perhaps even his transfer value in comparison to that of Suarez himself.

If you're going to insult someone, use some imagination, man!
