    Some posters don't realize stuff like that shouldn't be in a subject line. I remember back on Political Jack it had to be announced. Some people insisted on putting the vilest things right out there on the headline. I've seen the announcement on more than one board. Just surprised you're thinking "wow" I guess.

    It still feels like snark.

    THAT says a great deal about some of the posters around here.
    The radical far left wants to limit free speech, as you just demonstrated.

    They are allowed to use the word. It isn't racism because the radical far left defines racism differently then how it is actually understood by lucid people. Racism is making judgments or taking action based upon skin color. For a far left social justice oriented person of color or white ally, racism is prejudice plus power. And only white people can have power, no matter if they are the minority or not in power. It follows that only white people can be racist. This is the thinking behind the white privilege onslaught on young minds. The narrative says that racism is systematic and not personal, and all white people are racist because they have power because they benefit from being born white. They must spend their entire life atoning for the sin of being born white and can never escape the charge of being racist because it is an inborn trait because the system benefits them and oppresses people of color. Being colorblind is racism because it does not acknowledge the identity of people of color even though race is a social construct invented by white people to entrench white supremacy. White people are expected to shut up and acknowledge their privilege and racism. People of color can say anything they want because of slavery, and Manifest Destiny, or exclusion laws. Only they can be oppressed. They are incapable of oppressing others because they are not white. Even if they are the majority they are still not racist because white privilege gives white people power. As long as white people exist the power dynamic will always be against the people of color. It shouldn't take much imagination as to what the end game of this kind of thinking entails.

    Wonder why I don't subscribe to your claim of being a centrist. Possibly because you can't take responsibility for your posts, or misleading statements.

    I'm still on break from the forum. Having life issues. I'm just visiting and happened to see this.

    I wanted to say I feel @Trinnity is absolutely correct here. It's a matter of optics. Guests come and read our threads. Those just lurking looking for opinions do as well. When we use hate speech, especially without context as in a short thread title,it creates a perception of racism here. Anyone who has been here long enough knows you all don't mean harm by it nor do you really mean anything by it....but the guests don't. The users who are not here often or who are not regulars do not know this. We're creating an atmosphere we won't be able to bring the forum back from. I know you all mean well and it's really just part of the discussion. Here and there is fine...but it has been rather excessive in the past few months. I stand behind Trin on this topic.

    Just my two cents. I'm going back into the shadows. Life is not going well for me right now. Hope you all are doing well.

    Stop stirring shit, mk? You're enjoying this way too much. It's inflammatory and in bad taste. It comes off looking like this:

    I went back to the home page and there was one of your old post mates calling President Trump and the GOP , thugs.

    Evidently thug can be used to describe one set of people but not another.
    Well, anyone who has been around long should know about the double standard in regards to anything racial...to avoid trouble....just remember this: blacks are always innocent victimes and whites and republicans are always racist....not complicated.

    I prefer the term 'Negro' that is a respectful term...or at least it was when I was growing up....maybe that is why it is no longer politically correct...they like something more dramatic like black....which in history was one of the first terms for them but that changed to Negro...been so many changes in what they approve of it is kinda hard to keep up....i expect them to ban african-american soon as it is becoming recognized as connected too much with criminal activity aka every day on the crime report...dis african american did dat...dis african american did dis....obviouosly that woid must be changed to something that connotes innocence...how bout...'angelic peoples of color' a tad long but it might help their image.

    The point I am trying to make is this, although being English and having a pretty thorough knowledge of every word to describe a black person I do not use it willy nilly.
    If I choose to use those words posted above it would be an insult, and the recipiant would know the insults were coming.
    Is that the black version of eggnog?
