    Default I'm a racist....apparently

    I bought a car from E-bay and arranged to have an inspection done on the car. It came back highlighting structural defects, entire right hand side had been resprayed badly, bald front tyre, front wheel set back 2" from the left front wheels, excessive amounts of filler in the rear quarter panel and so it went on. I then decided I would not be buying the car.

    I then tell the guy I won't buy it and that it had these defects and he really needs to get them sorted. He gives me all this garbage about the car is still in very good condition and that I must buy it. I said no I won't buy it and if anything you should pay for the inspection as you described a car and when it came down to it its a pile of rubbish.

    Next thing I know I'm getting emails I am trying to beat him down on the price and being racist! Racist? I have never met him to know what race he is!!

    Seems these days its so damn easy to play the race card to try and get an edge on everything. Maybe I should start saying I'm being victimised in the UK for being English and White?

    Really pi**es me off that people will so readily use their race to try and get what they want.

    Sounds like he's spat the dummy because you aren't buying the car. What an idiot.

    We have our government to thank for that, seems racism only happens from whites and everyone else is the victim! Yet they are more racist to us! I am not saying they are all like that but there are many who use that to get there own way!

    Rules of Ebay: Buyer doesnt need yo buy if description is wrong! Any damage or faults should be listed as it is classed as a legal contract! If described innacurately then buyer does not have to buy

    ! I would contact ebay and raise a case telling them what has happened and say he is now being abusive because he did not describe car correctly and when you done check on it it has come back with defects sjowing it has been involved in an accident and repaired poorly which was not in description! Also he is accusing you of being a racist even though you dont know his race or have ever met him face to face! Generally being abusive and it is out of order! They should close his account.

    Don't get me wrong the car not being how it was described annoyed me but to start the race card rubbish winds me up. I have already reported the car to ebay and they will look into it

    I had it a couple of weeks ago, I was talking to my insurance company regarding an ongoing claim and I stated the lady who crashed into me was of Eastern European decent, I was then told I'm being racist and if I carried on in that manner the conversation would be brought to an end !
    I've no idea how that is being racist ?

    You got the link... Race card eh, they will be using it in poker next!!...

    I wrote a long response on my thoughts and experiences on racism, then deleted for the above! It's not worth the effort as its a made up term to describe millions of years of tribal evolution, 50 years of political correctness won't change people...

    Not racist Tony, just (badly) stereotypical

    This is why we need a nuclear or zombie appocolypse, we've gone too far to turn it back round... The minimal survivors would all just get along then, it would be beautiful (*teary eyes*) lol
