Gotta love the media
« on: February 22, 2011, 01:48:11 PM »
As per usual the media is serving its purpose, labelling anybody young as a boy racer...

http://msn.nzherald.co.nz/road-accidents/news/article.cfm?c_id=663&objectid=10707783

it was a 14 year old and a 20 year old in a completely stock ford telstar.

and yet the other article on nzherald is talking about an off duty cop doing over 20kph past a school bus and getting let off. with cellphone use described as schoolyard chatter...

typical one set of rules for all.

That is a good article imo.

The thing I am sick of is them labeling anyone with a nice, fast car as a boy racer.

They have labelled this guy a boy racer because he was racing someone! The fact that it was a stock car is good for our cause.

Actually, they havn't even labeled him a boy racer. They have said there is unconfirmed reports the car was racing.

Someone has told the media they saw the car racing, and the media have reported it. Whats the problem? :/

because its a young person racing a car on the street, it usually is a **** car that has no mods...

and whether you wish to believe it or not it gives them ammo against those of us with modified cars...

even though it has nothing to do with us.

No I don't get it either. They were racing.. I'd rather THEM be labeled as boy racers rather than just people with modified cars? >_>

The label the media gave is a boy racer.. Which about sums them up..

If you need it spelt out for you then you lack the mental capacity to understand.

because the public associates the "boy racer" term... as modified cars...

can you really not figure out the rest?

No, I can't see how this can be a bad thing. The people in your article are the EXACT term of what boy racer should be. Lets hope the police take this in and decide to give the term boy racer to people who (are generally boys) and race on the streets.

Thus, kind of negating the modified cars part and finally we can enjoy cars without being constantly abused by the police.

Just hopeful, I can't see any real negative effects of them labeling them as boy racers.. Because they are.. You don't have to have a modified car to be a boy racer.

Also, how about instead of just throwing petty insults and one liners you actually make a valid point.

are you being for real...

think about it

people do dumb**** in **** cars....

we do modifications to make them faster and look more "racey"

it makes us look even worse than them, what part of public perception can you not grasp?

?


And this article helps sway the public to associate the term 'boy racer' with old piece of **** Fords being raced by 14 year olds.

I am clearly too thick to get your point.

Perhaps I should hand back my Commercial Pilot License.
