Dicky said: "So you do know "Haole" is used by Hawaiians. Then why don't you GROW UP & use your own language or dialect? You are clearly missing the point."
Pinoys do use their dialect to describe the white man. Unless you've never socialized with Pinoys you would not know what i just said. Pinoys use "puti", "kano", "Aussie" and even "Haole" but that doesn't mean that we're racist. We as a people have more than one language and language evolves according to the environment setting. In this case, it's the surf scene and everything about that scene involves using words that are normally used in surfing. The word for you is "gago talaga".
Dicky, you went to the wrong school man.

Dicky said: "using a derogatory word such as "Haole" & a supremacist word such as "aryan" is showing YOU are racist."
"Haole" has many connotations, both good and bad: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=haole
"Aryan" is a scientific classification used on people of a certain physical trait and region. Filipinos are classified as Austronesian. Using the word "Aryan" does not mean one is racist. If the word "German" were used to describe racists, would using the word make anyone a racist? Dicky, log into your computer and use that technology to learn new things. Weren't you the one who argued for the use of technology to learn surfing?

"Being charged higher when you're from the US or the UK than when you're from Manila is not racial discrimination. That's business. It's not good business practice but it is business."
This just means that whatever Liquid Body charges you or anyone you know who's not from Manila is okay with you? Try buying something outside of the Philippines and getting charged more for the very same thing that a resident would buy. I'll bet you'll be changing what you just said. Go play badminton Ricky, some surf instructor might recognize you and charge you double. Because, like you said, it's just business.

1.Even "hoale" can be used to describe a foreigner or to be discriminatory. "Kano" or "puti" or "negro" is being used the same way. The point you are missing is that we should use our own word. Puro kayo gaya-gaya.
2.When the words "brown aryanz" was used in this thread it was meant to be supremacist. Not only was that racist, it's an oxymoron by TODAY'S norms. And, wrong-spelling-trying-to-sound-cool.
3.Read my post again. I said it is bad business practice. You used it as a reason to prove RACIAL discrimination. It is not RACIAL discrimination but bad or unacceptable or horrendous business practice. At least Sunset Resort responded to the accusations here. You have a clear lack of comprehension. I know, I know, you read it in Wikipedia...

You quote lines from a post & focus on that one line you can sensationalize. Just like how you focused on that one line in a whole paragraph Jan posted up. You don't even have all the facts on what had transpired & you already have conclusions.
If you're going to disect posts in lines, then disect the whole post. Not just that one post your intelligence is limited to defining, rationalizing, sensationalizing & "wikipedia-ing".
Read posts as a whole & understand how each line is placed in context. Hay... Comprehension is like common sense - it's disappearing...

Let me make a guess. YOU CAN'T SURF BECAUSE YOU'RE A KOOK so you go online and argue with everyone who wants to talk about surfing on this forum. When you get proven wrong about surfing issues (because this IS a surf forum), you try to go around the issue by making other issues on off topics (ie. haole, racism, Aryan, technology, etc.). There should be a gay website for you to log in on to discuss topics that you're fluent in (fashion, dildos, boys). Don't forget that people talked you down on this site and it's all justified. Take your broken hearted bakla a$$ and find someone to hug you.

Ricky, Besides the fact that you log in on this site and try to make yourself look as if you're the "big man" what else do you do during your day? I hope you get someone to teach you how to put on a life vest because honestly you're just a poser surfer wannabe. Liquid Body will overcharge you, Sunset Resort will deny you a room and isn't Sarper going to stab you? From what was said in the other topics on this site, he's going to meet up with you to stab you right? Will that be with a knife or are you thinking that he's going to penetrate you with his TT? You have a lot of hate. Leave the drama outside of this site, you kokriding bakla.

See that's the problem with you. I post rebuttals to your "intelligent" posts & you being smart come back with name calling & insults. So I don't know anything about surfing because I can write? That's right, I should be like you guys who post "technical" stuff on how to surf & how to surf "huge waves" to prove I know surfing.
No one knows who I am so Liquid Body won't overcharge me. Sunset Resort will give me a room because Jan proved via his post that he would address complaints & accusations & is therefore a businessman. Sarper won't be able to stab me. And you still can't post a good comeback without looking up stuff on Wikipedia &/or without name calling. What's your next post after this? Oh yeah, right, that I am a gay kook, poser surfer wannabe. Same old stuff...

Ricky, go read the other posts where you have this name calling/bluff macho man contest with Sarper. You're a total joke!
I don't know why you would even pose a challenge to fight with Sarper or anyone by giving a description of your supposed car and a desciption of who to look for when you won't even show. You are a total joke and you go online trying to justify any sense of credibility?
Seriously, go take on another hobby and quit trying to be someone you're not. Go to school, try not to repeat the same grade level and just graduate! I'm sure there's a job somewhere out there where they can use your toilet scrubbing skills.
