Thank you Jason for sending the message


Regarding

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...l#post45662159

It's about time someone finally is standing up to what has become a hell of a problem on RCG. That being the incessant racist posts that are becoming more and more frequent on this web site.

Good job, Jason!!!

Indeed!

I had reported post #55 in that thread for racism because it describes someone as "Homeboy", but no action was taken, which deterred me from also reporting post #88.

So thanks also to Yoda for reporting it, and appealing it when it was not warned either.

I look forward to terms such as "Homeboy" and "Homeys" becoming as socially unacceptable as the N word now is.

As should hood rat, as well as “mock Ebonics”, which also happens here with impunity. I read someone describe mock Ebonics as the verbal equivalent of blackface and I think that is spot on. It is an exaggerated and stereotype mocking of a specific racial group. If that does not violate the RCG rule on racism I don’t know what does. I have reported it before as have others and it gets a pass. I think there is at least one moderator here with a race issue.

Since Jason brought the hammer down, there has been a NOTICEABLE difference in the posts of at least one member who interjects "ebonics" into a sizeable percentage of his posts.

Eyes are watching now.

Thanks again, Jason.
