The main perpetrator(s) are reported yet their posted are never deleted and they are still members. It has gotten to the point were people looking to move here are scared off because they think this is a racist city. It's sad but true. Something really needs to be done, but what?

Sure we can ignore them but what about potential movers? How will they view the city. We had a 6 figure poster give up on moving here just because of it. This has gotten out of hand.

I wish there was a way we could all gang up on the idiots and run them out of here.

Good counter arguments will work better than threats. The latter just convinces me more of the soundness of my arguments.

So, you admit that the OP is talking about you and that you are racist?

Dear God, man. PROOFREAD!!!

If someone changes their mind about a place simply because they believe it may be racist based on what they read on an internet forum, then perhaps it's not that big of a loss.

I realize that we all have strong views and opinions on both sides of the racial divide, but I don't see a person making a decision to move to, or not to move to a city, just because of a comment on a chat board by some idiot, seriously. I mean Atlanta does have its issues with race, but it's not like Atlanta has a monopoly on racial issues. In all honesty, I would take the racial climate here in Atlanta over what I have seen in many Northeastern and Midwestern metros.

Exactly. We aren't afraid to talk about it here, which I think is extremely healthy.

The Northeastern and Midwestern metros are terrified of discussions that we take for granted as "normal" here.

Everyone knows this site is co-owned by stormfront. This is the "safe for work" version since many workplaces block the IP of that forum. Racial posts have been a part of the Atlanta forums ever since it started, so the OP isn't exactly pointing out something new or revolutionary. Use the ignore function

I do enjoy a cookie. White Chocolate, my fav, of course!

Why are you worried about giving my "what I want"? I want nothing from you.

Its called a debate, or discussion. Different views are expressed. Facts and points are exchanged. Civilized societies have been doing it for thousands of years.

A sincere admission that the ills of black society are NOT the fault of whitey would be a start, however.
