    Here is something I wish more people realised. When you quote freedom of speech to support your position, you are saying that the best argument you can find to support it is that it is not literally illegal to express. Hardly great praise!
    Oooh. The king is here. Your comment makes 100% no sense so please log off tsr, and go read a book or something. Aint wasting time talking to someone like you. BYE. #FREEDOMOFSPEECH

    Racism is a dark part of the human nature. If we want to develop as a species we cannot just fight it or embrace it. We have to understand it.

    Lets create a guide on how to spot a racist

    Here's my contribution

    A racist:
    -Believes stereotypes
    -Tell racist jokes
    -Play down slavery like its no big deal. E.g.
    ----Get over it! It was the times!
    ----Africans sold their own people as slaves!
    ----Arab traders sold slaves too!
    ----Slavery is universal!
    ----My family never owned slaves!
    -They think racism is no longer a big deal (thinking blacks are imagining racism is racist in and of itself since it assumes that blacks have extremely poor judgement
    -They are against reparations, affirmative action, etc – against any serious, concrete policy to undo the damage done and provide equal opportunity.
    -They think blacks are unreasonably angry, have a chip on their shoulders, complain, whine, etc.
    -Dont want to mix with other races
    -Dont like black music or culture
    -Votes Tory/UKIP/BNP
    -Gets nervous around Muslims on planes
    -Think 'reverse racism' is a problem
    -When someone is offended by racism, just says 'its just a joke'
    -Think a muslim leader of london is a bad thing "ooh but i heard he supports isis" :facepalm:
    -Posts on News and Current affairs forum (thnx Freudian Slit )
    -Reads the Daily Mail (thnx homeland.lsw )
    -Likes Donal Trump (Drumpf)
    -Ignores terrorist attacks in non-western countries
    -Has a southern confederate (from us civil war) flag

    Add your own clues!
    The not liking black music part is NOT racist at all

    Add 'denies white privilege' and 'dismisses racist things as satire' because they dont know what satire is.

    Also add 'The moment they are accused of being racist they shout "Because i disagree with you, im racist right?!" '

    Freedom of speech doesnt protect hate speech and racism
    It does actually protect racism.

    Yes it should
    When people speak out the views get contained when they don't it causes trouble.

    How far would you take this ban? Would you shut down BLM for demanding segregation?

    I'm black and some of the things you've said are a bit extreme to then come to the conclusion a person is racist :|
    Seriously how is voting for Tory or UKIP make somebody racist???
    Or even not enjoying 'black music' doesn't make a person racist
    Islam is a religion not a race.
    Modern day BNP are not really that racist wheb compared to national front back in the day
