Re: Racism
Why are you complaining? You can say what you want....
Have you never heard of reverse discrimination?

Re: Racism
I still haven't seen actual racism.  But I understand the media has confused a lot of people on the topic.

Re: Racism
No in Wes's defense (his political side satire remark aside) since this forum is open and anyone who isn't scared can join.  We established two rules no nudity (which has kind of morphed into links are ok as long as marked with NSFW) and no racism.  We are all assholes on here that everyone can see, but we don't need to be racist assholes.  Think of it as us saving you from yourself. 

This was long before race has reached the heights it is at now.  Which if I put my political remark in became a much bigger and blown out issue under NObama.  However, Wes4au was right to remove the comment, it was a gray area, but skirted the rules and I agree with him removing it. 

It isn't a PC thing we very hardly moderate any boards. In fact, some of you are here because you have been kicked from every other Auburn board.  It is a rule of 2, it was fixed, nothing really more to say about it.

In summation, since Auburn is in the south and there seems to be a weird stigmata of the south being racist rednecks, we didn't want to perpetuate the stereotype.

If what you are talking about was my statement, it wasn't racist, it was derogatory. If deleting derogatory comments is going to be the rule then this board will have a lot of blanks.

Fair enough, Like I said it was gray area. But anything derogatory based on race whether deemed "racist" or not still doesn't need to be on the board.

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

As a proud gray, I am offended by your derogatory statements of exclusivity.

Maybe if you weren't so big you'd be allowed in.  Trim the fat.

When I first read this, I thought you had come out. I missed the r in gray. I guess I'm just expecting it any day now, from someone else on here.
