You hit that one out of the park, this board is so filled with some type of hatred, racism, political or otherwise. And double good luck on that one, I just hope the Douche Bag Repository has enough room for everyone.

Specifically, it was a "virtue signaling" troll.

Actually no. It was made to call out a few people on this forum without calling them by name.

That would be in your opinion. These days disagreeing with some people's opinion gets that tag hung on you even though you are not one.

I don't know what you're referring to but racism just isn't right. If you haven't come to that conclusion yet, then you should, because such an opinion is invalid, enough said.

I agree it is bad but the word has lost all meaning. Now if you don't think like others you are racist, Don't like that candidate? racist. Not a member of whatever political party? racist..It is stupid, it has gotten out of hand and it needs to stop. Let me know when it quits being a label for someone who disagrees with your thinking on any subject from cars to chicken sandwiches and then we can have a rational discussion on it.

Wonder when exactly the definition changed?
From Webster's:
Definition of racism
1 : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
Personally, I think much of what is called racism today is actually culturism.


Are you certain Nancy didn't think the sign on the door said SALOON instead of Salon?

No, that's obviously not what it means. I'm with you, a lot of things are being accused as "racist," but I'm still referring to the true definition of racism here, and I absolutely never said otherwise, so I'm not sure what makes you think I did.

Yes, that's the definition of racism. Webster's English Dictionary says so, so it's true, and that's what I believe it is.
