The fact is....


I find your post lacking in any real facts at all other than posting an opinion about what you believe to be factual.

Care to illuminate the situation a bit more?

You definitely need to elaborate more on your thread. One liner posts are barely tolerated, imagine one liner threads?

What are these facts you speak of?

Lemme guess. OP has sore bottom after having a post removed that used statistics about a certain group being more violent/law breaking etc.

There's a good chance I reported you, and a good chance I starred you. There is also a fine line.

Why?
Because it is the becoming the norm, and not just here on ATS.
It's as if years and years of exposure to subliminal messages has resulted in a complete warping of the brain, affecting only those of a certain mindset.
..but when it does happen you should consider it a compliment.

Because political correctness trumps logic every time.

Ever get the feeling they have an agenda and think they are being witty when in fact it all looks too obvious to the rest of us Domo1?

LOL

Too funny bro,

could be that certain subjects and frames of thought are just not acceptable these days. The real question is, is that really a good thing?

As Domo1 said, "There is a fine line." Unfortunately, the line shifts depending on the setting and the audience. There is a feeling that minority groups have suffered enough and that saying anything to hurt the members of such a group is like "kicking them when they're down."

That has the advantage of sometimes reducing the anger, and the disadvantage of making problems very difficult to discuss. It also limits the range of people allowed to speak on the subject. If a Black Mayor, or Louis Farrakhan, says "You punks ought to be ashamed of yourselves. Get to school, drop the gang banger mentality, and work to make it in this country," they will be listened to as someone addressing a serious problem. If a White said the same thing, he would be lucky to get off the platform, and the word "racist" would follow him forever.

It's not the facts that makes one racist, it's how the audience feels about those facts coming from a particular speaker.

Terrible, but it's also our current reality.

Now

Here is a right way to explain a perceived view on some being viewed as racist. I got more out of that reply in one paragraph than I do out of many long rambling threads...

There are lots of religious people who think that black people are the descendants of Ham who were cursed by god.

They use these false facts as a defense to ignore responsibility while they say racist things.

I do get that feeling. It makes me cringe.

I would like to commend you on that glorious moustache you've been cultivating by the way.

Perhaps OP would like to enlighten us on the wrongs inflicted on his/her gentle soul by the cruel moderation team? I keep poking my pet giveacrap with a stick, but it won't wake up.

I hear ya I was all Giggity about some real responses but it seems we have those who choose to share their experiences being wrist slapped and playing the victim while doing so...

Shoot. My bad, I forgot.

ATS the land of censorship. We should applaud these brave souls that stand up to the tyranny of the moderators. These freedom fighters are always super objective!

The curse of Ham is an assumed biblical justification for imposing eternal slavery upon Black people, and Black people alone,[2] essentially such phrase being an ideologically driven[38] misnomer.[39]


Curse of Ham

That star is earned....

Yes lets praise free market capitalism and freedom then piss and moan when a website controls what is displayed on it.

Why do people ask questions without context?
