    Actually, no. The shoe would fit beautifully.

    He's a known racist .

    What I am saying is that humans are too complex to be any one thing all the time, and that despite our innate pattern recognition abilities, to apply those to use them as an excuse to claim to know someone else's thoughts and motivations is irrational. And by saying that, I mean that that kind of conclusion is based on an emotional response, not a logical one, and while it may be common or "human nature" as you suggest, it is neither right nor reasonable.

    You missed the point, in one sentence you claim I am JetBlack, and in the next post you tell me I don't know who jetblack is.

    But at the same time, if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, and then if you see that MF fly?

    Then it's probably a duck. :dunno:

    Again, not saying he's not racist. Just saying that it's unfair to assume that every post that might conceivably be racist necessarily is. Nobody is always only one thing all the time.

    I wasn't the one who said that. However, I judge singular actions. And that singular action was racist. The fact that we all know it was and CONTINUE to give him cover is just a microcosm of what's happening in this country.

    This just isn't true. A singular action of 6 random symbols is not a racist action.

    There are a ton of derogatory 6 letter words....assuming you are still talking about that? Thread took an unfortunate turn, so I stopped reading all the posts

    I'll just not be racist. I won't ever defend them either. From "many sides"....

    I'll be that guy.

    As a singular action, what he said wasn't racist

    6 letters

    Could have been racist, could also have been

    Nice to live in a fantasy world like that, but in the real world, people judge and assume. and its common, thus rational.
    It is rational to follow the dots and come up with a path, regardless if a few portions of that path are missing.

    You may think its irrational, but its a majority thing, thus it is rational to most people to make the connections.

    All of which are words that DON'T have to be censored. Since they don't, no one in the forum WOULD censor them.
