I agree but then you have to be careful what you term as 'racist' and what you term as just 'honest opinion'
Sometimes what we write can come across as being 'racist' but what we are actually doing is stating a 'fact' or 'opinion'
It's like if i said 'this city is getting too crowded with too many immigrants' would you class that as being 'racist' or class it as 'fact'?
People will have to learn not to take opinions out of context!!

Hating Mr. Obama's policies is not racist, and hoping he fails for the sake of the country is also not racist.
The opening post made it clear that ATS staff is intelligent enough to discern such differences.
However, racism disguised as political criticism is on the rise, and will not be tolerated.

People ARE different. Different cultures ARE different from each other. I'm not saying one is better than the other, just different.
Pointing out, discussing, questioning, or examining those differences is not racists in and of itself though some will cry racism at any discussion of said differences.

I agree that racism is not for ATS.
One of the problems I see is that some topics involve race.
towards men, women, age, sex, sexual orientation, race, citizenship, location, intelligence, eye color, hair color
