I'm not even going there with you or anyone. This thread is disgustingly oozing of racism and it needs to be shut down immediately.

If anyone is being racist is shutting it down the best solution . I thought this was supposed to be a public forum with free expression .
Shutting it down would be a form of censorship

Racists have freedom of speech. The rest of us also have the freedom to tell them to go strait to hell. Freedom of speech does not protect you from criticism or disdain.

Also, we all reserve the right to remove it from our privately owned homes/privately run businesses. This website is a privately owned business(?) and so the owners/moderators have every right to remove hate speech, should they choose to do so.

This thread was started by a previously banned racist troll in order to make you all angry.
This is why I'm closing it.
