You should go ahead and unban Bwood then like you said you would

 

I did? I say a lot about the people I ban...

 

 

Stereotypes can be used in racism (like Bwood did), but not all Stereotyping has to be racist.

Wasn't meaning to attack your post so much as just point out that your perhaps-inferred-by-me opinion that most hard-line conservatives are racists. I think that's a stereotype and does not reflect my experience - and trust me, I know a lot of hard-line conservatives, but very few of them are racists.

 

It's all good.

 

As for the race debate - I think for the most part, it's a mountain out of a molehill on a message board.
 

 

In my experience, most hard-line conservatives either don't know they are racist or won't admit to it.

 

Actions speak louder than words, for me, in this situation.

 

Also, I kinda agree with the mountain out of a molehill comment. The very fact that we're even sitting here debating it on the internet means that we're obviously at a point in our existence where we can table the issue virtually. If we could only do it physically, the world (especially the US) could possibly take a greater step towards progress.

Just an FYI

 

I've banned BWood, TCF, TRD, and countless others who have used derogatory racial slurs.

 

I sometimes think people mix up racism with ignorance.

 

I sometimes think racist people hide behind a cloak of ignorance.

 

I sometimes think too much

If page views and clicks are profitable for said racist sympathizers, this thread must be a gold mine.

So clarify here... because I wasn't really paying attention to that whole situation with Bwood...


Bwood got banned. But not for using the N Word, for other racist statments. Is that correct?

You're right, my bad.  But what he said was about as close as you can get without actually saying it.

I see SZ still hasn't began to understand the difference in Stereotyping and out-right racism.

 

 

 

I see that you haven't begun to understand that forming and using stereotypes the basis of which are race - ie racial stereotypes - is a type of racism.

He got angry with PSC and assumed he was Black and thus made a series of spiteful remarks about PSC assumed race.

 

That was a part of the reason he was banned, but not the whole reason.

 

p Big difference (IMO) in asking someone who may or may not be black if they are a bad tipper vs. saying something along the lines of "Assuming here from your comments you are black, so you can take your napped crack head welfare taking ass and go fug some fat white girl in your ghetto house that white people pay for" or some such.

 

I can't remember exactly what it was, but something like that.

 

That was essentially the straw that broke the camels back.

OK, so basically he got banned for being a racist and a dick... not for saying the N Word.

Doesn't that fly in the face of the premise that "the only way to get banned on the huddle is to use the N word?"

White people can't jump.

Asians are good at math.

Black's are better athletes.

Mexicans have large families.

Indian's own casino's.

 

 

Are all of those statements racist?

 

 

Forming is one thing.

 

 

Applying them to how you deal with people is something completely different.

I.E. we tolerate some racism.
