Chez, I'm curious about your definition of racism as it applies to that particular post. You call it a non PC post, but I would call it a racist post.

Surely referring to people by the color of their skin or race in an insulting manner is racism, is it not? Or does it only apply to certain colors, in your view?

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

I find it far more helpful to stick to the PC approach. That is a wider net than judging things racist/etc and removes the need to be judgemental about people in a way that I don't think is useful and makes progress harder.

I'm not overly concerned with what is past. If it's not repeated then I will be very happy. If it gets repeated less often or the language becomes less offensive then that's good solid progress too. Progress is the aim, I will mostly leave the judgments to others.

That doesn't mean that I don't make such judgements but over the years I have come to the very considered view that it's a mistaken approach to be overly judgmental except when it's for entertainment or absolutely necessary.

Sure. Not sure if Chez will allow it though.

You referred to Wil getting his "yellow-ass" kicked. That is a derogatory racial slur usually used against Asians.

Self-ban for a day? Lol. A perma would be more appropriate seeing as how you are a repeat offender at this sort of thing

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

First off, before any talk about racism, here's what I said:

Quote:
The cute part is Marn would snap kick wil's ____ ass into the Kattegat.
Now, you just said this:

Quote:
You referred to Wil getting his "____-ass" kicked.
Getting your 'ass kicked' refers to receiving a beating.

'Kicking your ass into' something refers to your person being physically placed into said something.

Both can involve a literal foot upon a literal ass, but usually neither involves either. What's most important though is they are separate terms and ideas.

This might seem like a nitpick but it highlights an important theme: U r dum. You don't read nor think well and your terrible posting all stems from this fundamental concept.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

A magician isn't supposed to reveal his tricks but there are layers to this here stuff.

I wanted to accuse Marn of being fiercely nationalistic and anti-immigration but not necessarily criminal or violent, which is I didn't say he would literally physically harm wil. Nor did I want to imply any racism separate from being fiercely nationalistic, so using my 3rd-person-omniscience to not divorce thought from deed, I opted for 'yellow', a politically incorrect term but not one nearly as charged or cutting like 'zip' or '****' or 'mongoloid'.

The original draft went something like 'when wil hops off that ferry from Denmark and sets foot on those pure Swedish shores Marn will snap toss him back into the Kattegat' but then I opted for brevity. It still served the point of highlighting both wil and Marn's misguided nationalism in a colorful and politically incorrect manner.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

"Will's yellow-ass" are the exact words you used.

I rest my case, your honor.

Lol. That's a lot of words to try and weasel out of a blatant case of racist posting. You don't fool anyone, creep.

Racism and bigotry is fully accepted from leftists by other leftists.

5ive is bored of using the N word and is now spewing racist slurs at Asians? Not surprising, I guess. Once a racist, always a racist.

Short answer...





No.




p.s. Black Peter knows better, he's just terrible and lame at trolling, but he can't help himself after the MLK-wasn't-a-leftist debacle. This is like 6 months and counting and for me it was really just a pwn-in-passing.


p.p.s. Or maybe he's really really good at trolling. I'm torn. With a good troll you have to fully commit to just looking totally stupid to reap the troll treasure.

I've heard several people say they dislike King of the Hill because it's not funny. I think the satire is lost on the people being satirized.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

If you're pretending to be a leftist, then you're allowed to openly be a racist. If you disagree, then you just don't get the satire.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

Some extremist kneejerk nutter blames the NY car incident on Muslims, and chezlaw only decrees it's non-PC.

When this is pointed out as an inadequate response, my post gets deleted by the cheztapo.

Dreadful modding.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

You can make your point here. Just try to keep it out of the other content threads

I think you want me to call him names but I don't share your view that that is vital or useful.

Btw he is on a 1 day timeout for not being PC (not just for that specific bit of being nonPC though)
