Racial Slurs

We're having some posts being reported for the use of racial slurs in this forum. While it is widely known that there is some racism that goes on in this forum, those users have found a way to dance around the issue enough that the majority of moderators of this website have deemed the behavior fine for now.

It's really not okay to me at all. I don't believe that people of color should be subjected to that shit over political affiliations. That said, I'm a firm believer in a majority consensus so it is what it is at this point.

That said, overtly racial slurs will result in bannings. It is a bullet point in the TOS of this website, and not much is out of bounds. One user has already been banned, and another one has been warned. If you insist on trying to dance around racist comments, please be prepared for a vacation if you use a term that is deemed racist by the moderators. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Privilege is a head-start; it is up to individuals to do something with that head-start. And, yes, it is sad that we still pay attention to things like "first woman/black person/hispanic person/etc to _____," because those milestones should have been passed a long time ago.

As for the double-standard: I personally don't want to insult anyone based on nationality or race or whatever. But for the purposes of humor (which is what we're really talking about here -- the way that posters like Vailpass use race humor), there can be a double-standard, IMO. I forget which comic first said this, but there's a rule for good comedy: comedy only works when the butt of the joke is above your station. When white men make racist or misogynist jokes it causes a lot of people to bristle because of the actual power dynamics in society.

don't cop out...you're above that. ..and those milestones have been passed..only certain people like to pretend that they haven't been surpassed...if you tell people over and over they are victims, they tend to believe it.


secondly, like donger said, get new material. people of color/races were accomplishing more than you and I combined over two hundred years ago....dynamics of society? would that include a newsweek cover indulging in age and race dicrimiintion?

The majority can use racism as a tool to keep others down, to diminish them and control them. Minorities aren't able to do that same thing with racism.
Minorities can harm majorities too. Like voting to take their property away.

I don't know what Newsweek cover you are referencing. But I guess we'll have to agree to disagree about the historical record of the U.S.

2) you're white and you have it good only because of your race, and accomplishments of people of color/whites are ultimately marginalized, because otherwise, it's only special due to their race and not the individual...'the first black to'

30 we can use racism to diminish and control whites by assuming they are racist, and call them racist, because they as whites have it coming and we need to hold them to standards that we don't expect from other races.

....you're basically implying people of color ARE inferior and should be treated as such.
His post was not even worthy of a reply, this is the same poster who was offend over the movie Avatar

I was offended by Avatar too. I thought copyright protections existed in this country for a reason.

Well hell. I decided to finally read Uncle Tom's Cabin. After this new policy was implemented her, I have decided that I can not go on with good conscience reading the language that Harriet Beecher Stowe uses. I've decided to ban her from my kindle.


I suspect Patteeu will be along to defend her in a few moments.

Basically it's not against the rules to be racist. Be racist all you want. You can technically say I am part of the KKK and I hate black people without fear of being banned. But start slinging racial slurs and you got trouble.

We can't possibly filter all racial slurs. It's impossible because many of them are perfectly acceptable words used in correct context.

The reason DC is largely ignored is because we found that it's impossible to moderate closely without being accused of bias or taking a side. The only time we swing the mod stick in this forum is when posts are reported.

Nothing has changed with Flop's announcement here. He's just reminding everybody of the rules as a courtesy because it has been a trending issue here in D.C.
