NH: I am curious why the term "white English people" was worthy of mocking?   Aren't white English people the aboriginal people of England?

Because you capitalized it.

Oh.  For the record, Expat did.  I didn't.  Except English.  But English is supposed to be capitalized.

Expat's punctuation has always been a little sketchy.   What do you expect from a people who spell the word plow the way they do?

Hey, watch it there, you semi-literal colonial! Kings of the verbification of nouns: summited, medalled and don't even talk about the perpetual misuse of poor "momentarily".

Black as in reference to a person or people always gets capitalised as a matter of course, so being an equal opportunity agitator White gets it too.

The only reason you spell plough differently is it was too complicated for those that followed the pilgrims to understand.

There are routes of evolution and rules.... many times broken... that formulated the language as it evolved. Webster simply needed to write words phonetically so allu could cope. It has been a downhill slide ever since.

Still wondering why it ain't changed to fonetically? Like day say, go an pick up the F  (phone).

English eally is an effed up language with all the exceptions of rules. I admire anyone that has gone through the learning of ESL, especially with all the slang lingo out there.
It gotta be tough. The silent letters, the gh and ph sound ain't easy.
Years ago I had a Korean boss that would say "you gotta be pone me"
Sometimes today, I find myself saying the same thing.
