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.

I thought it was reserved for those who had been awarded a J.D.

WOW, see, the word is already filtered here and I didn't know this.

But to the Hispanic race, it's a slur yet our POTUS in 1954 was able to use it and it is still in the history books

The guideline is, "If you can't stand on top of a table at a bar and say it, then don't say it here". My challenge to use vailpass's statement on the street doesn't have anything to do with this guideline. I don't think a smart person is going to call a Latino "greaseball" on the street.

The problem here is that you are scrutinizing a rule that doesn't actually exist. It's just something that has been said for 12 years on this site to simplify things. Most people just nod in agreement and understand. It's only the obtuse idiots who debate politics every day who try to over-analyze a general rule of thumb.
i can't give you rep again so let me just say

right on, mother****er!! right on!!

Operation Person Of Hispanic Heritage is probably the best they could do back then. I'm surprised it wasn't something more slurry.

I never said I wanted to use the word .... read it again. But if the topic of the 1954 operation came up, why allow it to be used today knowing the word is a racial slur in today's world of being politically correct.

Say if a politician was discussing immigration and had a slip of the tongue and reference the 1954 act, can you imagine the public outcry? Instant kill of a political campaign just buy referencing something from within the act.

That would be , Not Okay, what say you?

I know I have a slip of the tongue and reference Operation W****** quite often.

BTW, no one would be mad about that.

I have no problem, what so ever, with people using racist language or curse words, as long as it's not meant in a harmful way. And actually curse words, I don't give a shit about.

It actually drives me crazy when a newspaper edits out words like ****er, etc.


These are easy lines. We're not talking about politicians, we're talking about this forum. If you want to talk about something, do it. Just don't be a racist.

It's part of our history. It wasn't considered offensive then.

If you're discussing the 1954 Operation then nobody can be upset. I've seen it printed in newspapers. If you're bitching at your neighbor you can't use it. What's so hard to understand?
