The words Dyke and Nigger offends a lot of people.

My local media “Lincolnshire Live” ran a story about the replacement of headstone for Dambusters hero Guy Gibson’s dog sparks petition to change it back.

In Chapter 18. Racial and sexual discrimination. I covered this subject as it came up time and time again during my time as a prison counsellor. The chapter states “This is always a touchy subject to raise as different people have separate views on what it is. To me the rule has always been to treat people of all colours, gender and faiths as equals, but I can understand where things go wrong. When I was growing up you hardly saw a black person but that was decades ago, and we are now becoming a multi coloured country. I always ask people that I know have made a racist comment against another human being, what would they do if they themselves or somebody close to them was suffering a heart attack.  Would they tell the paramedic not to save a life simply because they were a different colour or religion? Whether we like it or not we now live in a multi faith country and in a few decades time everyone will be of mixed race.

I do have some sympathy for those that say the PC has gone too far. I have had to reprimand an inmate who was heard saying “we have a lot of dykes in Lincolnshire” after I received a complaint from a female member of staff. I couldn’t do much about it as all the fens have drainage dykes and there is a lovely village named Dyke just north of Bourne in Lincolnshire. Another word that upsets many people – myself included, is the word “Nigger” which refers to a black Negro but what I find slightly confusing is why a black person can use the word – as many do in various rapping songs, yet when a white person sings along to the song they are being racist. One of the first time I heard the word Nigger was when it referred to a male black Labrador retriever belonging to Wing Commander Guy Gibson of the Royal Air Force, and the mascot of No. 617 Squadron. Being a dambuster fanatic I cried as a child when Nigger got run over whilst his owner was fighting for his country. It looks as if the PC brigade should steer clear of Lincolnshire as it is the home of the 617 squadron, and you’ll pass many dykes along the way.”

  8. I don’t need to tell you how important it is to optimize every step in your SEO pipeline. But unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to cut out time or money when it comes to getting good content. At least that’s what I thought until I came across Article Forge… Built by a team of AI researchers from MIT, Carnegie Mellon, Harvard, Article Forge is an artificial intelligence (AI) powered content writer that uses deep learning models to write entire articles about any topic in less than 60 seconds. Their team trained AI models on millions of articles to teach Article Forge how to draw connections between topics so that each article it writes is relevant, interesting and useful. All their hard work means you just enter a few keywords and Article Forge will write a complete article from scratch making sure every thought flows naturally into the next, resulting in readable, high quality, and unique content. Put simply, this is a secret weapon for anyone who needs content. I get how impossible that sounds so you need to see how Article Forge writes a complete article in less than 60 seconds! order here.
