So... racist remarks are okay, but...

LOCKED DISCUSSION

But calling someone out for making racist remarks is not?
Anyone on the 'team' care to comment on that?

      I'll pull up a chair to hear their response too.
      Their "policy," is complete bullshit. They should encourage people to just rip racist posters a new one.

      1. I've got my bucket of popcorn and a front row seat!

        I think with just 2 replies this has already been hit by the Mod's.....I actually thought this whole thread would be removed.

          Ya...they're already doing damage control in here.
          It'll probably be gone soon enough, don't wanna hurt the feelings of our local racists.

          1. When did racist remarks show up? I've not seen any. If I did, I'd flag in a heartbeat.

              I saw one on a local board about Hispanics new poster, hey my wife is Hispanic, flagged and promptly gone. Thanks Chowhound.

            2. Isn't there a flat out prohibition against attacking another poster regardless of reason? Who's to say what is just cause for personal attacks? The rule might let a racist get away with some comments but it's an easy one to administer.

                There was no "attack" I simply commented that there was a perpetuation of a negative stereotype..
