I notice threads discussing race where white people are emphasized as the perpetrator (see "White supremacist stabs..." thread) - they're left open. The point of this thread is that a white person was stabbing someone, purportedly because they were a white supremacist. Even though that was confirmed to be false, that thread is left open, painting a picture that white people are racist and stab people who aren't white.
I notice if I start a thread discussing race where white people are emphasized as the victims (see White baby tortured by black daycare worker) - they're closed. Note that I never attacked black people in this thread or did any "baiting" whatsoever. All I did was argue that there's a racial angle to a story being covered up. How's that baiting? I see threads with racial angles all the time (like the one I noted above).
I notice the term "race baiting" simply depends on the mod and how he personally decides to apply the term. I see no consistent appliance of said rule. Based on this pattern I would even go as far to say as I'm observing definite racism in the moderator community. Can anyone prove me wrong? Or am I going to get censored for simply pointing this out? I'm not trying to make a fuss, I just want to know what's going on here because I'm genuinely confused by how and when these policies are applied.
So, please explain, so I can follow policy, why is it race baiting when a thread victimizes a white person, but it's not if it's painting a white person as a perpetrator?
Better yet - how are we supposed to have intellectual, honest discussions about the state of racial relations when moderators are censoring topics that don't fit the agenda of their worldview?
I already sense someone is going to lock this thread without even explaining to me why other people are allowed to make threads similar to the ones I make which get closed, but I would actually love to get some answers and have an honest discussion on this topic so I'm not overstepping boundaries that seem arbitrarily applied. If it's not arbitrary, but there's something specifically I did in my thread that other people aren't doing in their threads about white perpetrators, I'd like to know what it is I did.
That way I can put the thread back up, following what specificity of whatever rules you're about to lay out.
