Racial Slurs

We're having some posts being reported for the use of racial slurs in this forum. While it is widely known that there is some racism that goes on in this forum, those users have found a way to dance around the issue enough that the majority of moderators of this website have deemed the behavior fine for now.

It's really not okay to me at all. I don't believe that people of color should be subjected to that shit over political affiliations. That said, I'm a firm believer in a majority consensus so it is what it is at this point.

That said, overtly racial slurs will result in bannings. It is a bullet point in the TOS of this website, and not much is out of bounds. One user has already been banned, and another one has been warned. If you insist on trying to dance around racist comments, please be prepared for a vacation if you use a term that is deemed racist by the moderators. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Oh, sorry. Yeah. I love the drama that goes on around here. I like watching though, not reading from a script.

Hispanic is not a race.

JMO, but if someone is called a racial slur and gets offended by it they have fallen to the same level as the one saying it.

They're just words.

I'm not sure whether you actually believe your bullshit or not, but you aren't a noob here so you shouldn't be completely oblivious to the history of this site.

Here are a couple of moderators from days gone by using/discussing the slur that got this thread started:

I can't wait to read the rest of this.

I've really gotta keep a tally of who allows which deragatory terms.

Jim's [aka Logical, for those who don't know] List: raghead, redskin = ok; broad = not ok.

Which is humorous, because mine is flip-flopped.
And here is Endelt and his buddy Boozer talking about the degree of vagueness in the Chiefsplanet rule on slurs and the extent to which enforcement was focused on a limited subset and applied capriciously:

person of Hispanic heritage is only taboo for some. Others can use it with impunity.

LOL, yeah maybe so. But that's an example of why a list would benefit the community. Sheltered people like me would have a resource from which we could educate ourselves on the current state of affairs with respect to slurs since it is obviously changing over time here.

Dude. Really? You came in here? I only stayed because I realized that even after days, I couldn't wash the stench off. You're ****ed!

I think that is easy to say for us pasty white guys. If someone were to call me a cracker or honky that is more humorous than anything.

I am not a minority and haven't walked in their shoes to adequately answer that question.

You said it a lot nicer than I thought it. I chose not to respond because I didn't want him to feel put down.

The good news that I've learned from this thread is that "greaseball" covers both major bases.

That elevates an ideology of paternalism over the ideology of equality.
