Thank you for the information, but I don't see how it`s got anything to do with dubtac`s choice of language.

In my book, dubtac doesn`t get excused for using racial epithets because someone else is getting away with it.

Musuko42-"I don't know who Nagin is or know what he said"

Who he is: Clarence Ray Nagin, Jr. Democratic Mayor of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, who managed to royally screw up the city`s preperations, handling and response to the hurricane. His ineptitude was directly responsible for many of New Orleans deaths during Katrina.

AFTER Katrina he said in a speech: "We as black people, it`s time, it`s time for us to come together. It`s time for us to rebuild a New Orleans, the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans. And I don`t care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day. New Orleans will be a majority African-American city. It`s the way God wants it to be."

"SKIDMARK Nagin says this is a chocolate city and you just avoid it by redacting with rhetorical questions."

I don't know who Nagin is or know what he said, so I didn`t express an opinion on him. I saw what you said, though, so I expressed my opinion.

"What you really wanted to ask..."

I was trying to point out to you that if you talk in a way that makes people think you`re an ignorant bigot, (regardless of whether you are or not) they`re going to treat you like one, and you`re going to struggle to get anyone to take you seriously.

And I was trying to get you to wonder whether you`re not listened to by the people in power because of how you speak.

"this has to do with FREEDOM from BIGOTRY"

I`m not sure how you expect to be free from others inflicting bigotry on you, when you yourself use racial epithets that others would consider bigotry against them. Do unto others?

"And how do you KNOW he isn't BLACK?"

I don`t. But I made what I felt was a fair assumption based on him saying that "whitey" wasn`t welcome there. I infered that he was talking about himself.

"Tell me how ANYONE could build a site which crashes under a load of 2,000?"

Poor programming/support isn`t the sole preserve of government bodies. *cough*Simcity2013*cough*

@Muksuko42 "The question I asked you was whether or not you believe politicans/government/the people in power would consider him vulgar and racist, and whether they would be less inclined to pay attention to his views because of their impression of him."
The question you asked was meant to stay introverted but you still defecated the question anyway. If you couldn't see the obvious that I really don`t give two flying feces throwing baboons about what you or what any government, politician or principality has to say, FREEDOM isn`t a POPULARITY CONTEST, this has to do with FREEDOM from BIGOTRY presented from all walks of life.
SKIDMARK Nagin says this is a chocolate city and you just avoid it by redacting with rhetorical questions.
What you really wanted to ask "Is DUBTAC a RACIST?".... Can I confirm he`s a Racist?.. If I decide he is a Racist how to call him out as an RACIST?....
You`re right Musuko42 I`m racist I can`t even stand my own Stereotype
