Imagine if you’re at the Coogee Pavillion and you’re talking about the footy on the big screen and you say ‘Burgess is a beefcake’ and then some guy in tight pants and a ponytail comes up behind you, taps you on the shoulder and with a lisp says ‘excuse me. Can you please not use the term ‘beefcake’ because my friend outside and I are actually vegans and we like find that so offensive ok? What would you think?
Because that’s the way this stuff is headed and it’s happening. Gotta draw that line and that line has to be what Zimbos is saying.
Use that same story but instead of the beef cake and the Vegan use a racially fuelled name and a person from that race

Context is important. There is no mention the name was racist. You are taking that line and running with it.

The whole point of this argument is that the name ‘nugget’ referred to his skin colour, if it didn’t then there’s no argument and no reason to be upset, which isn’t the case
