Racist Post?

If I see a racist post is there an appropriate way for me to bring it up with a moderator?

Click the little red triangle at the bottom-left of the post.

But you're gonna be really busy if you start flagging racist posts in Fight Club...

Thanks Soundy.

I expect racist posts in fight club, but in the regular forum it bugs me.

There are entire THREADS with racist titles (the "twangers chicks" thread comes to mind). There's hardly a thread in any forum that goes over two pages without some kind of crack that some thin-skinned wanker could cry "racist!" about... even Police Forum. So racism is fine if it's directed toward various Asians or blacks or something, but not against natives?

If you want my honest opinion Soundy, it bugs me when I see any post with comments that could be perceived as racist; aside from the twanger chicks thread since I enjoy that to much to care.

I just ignore those racist posts however, because I'm not a member of the race the comment was directed at and I'd rather let someone of the offended race handle it if they wish. In this case, I am a member of the offended race and I don't see anything wrong with speaking up and saying I think what is said was racist and it offends me.

I'd thank this if I could.

If a one line post like that is upsetting, you arent really ready for non-AOL-childlocked version of the internet, sorry.

I didn't make a thread in this forum so everyone on RS could chime in that I'm a child and that I need to have less sensitive about issues that concern my race, I'm steadfast and proud of my belief that their is no place for racism of any degree in our society. If you don't feel the need to comment on this issue make a thread in fight club and I'll happily discuss the issue there. I raised the issue to mods and they can handle the issue as they see fit.

In my opinion, that post was just racial profiling. Not quite being racist. If he had said any other race, it would still be fine.
I guess it just sounds more derogatory than it really should be, considering all the politics and racism behind First Nations people. I know why you're feeling offended, but you shouldn't feel this way. Get used to racial profiling. We all taste it one way or another.

Then you, sir, are a hypocrite of the highest order.

Waitasec... aren't you the same douche who was complaining that getting Failed on RS would destroy your self-worth? Oh yeah... http://www.revscene.net/forums/showp...&postcount=218

I have a suggestion: you need to hang up your modem and get off teh internetz... your skin is way too thin to survive here. That's not a racial thing, that's just a little advice from me personally to you personally.
