So I want to ask now, do you think those people in the crowd were being racist?
When the crowd started chanting USA, that insinuated that the other team were NOT Americans. THAT is why it was offensive, and THAT is why your comparison does not work.
Your assumptions are just that. Assumptions. I "like" posts for a variety of reasons.Your “like” posts are very relevant as far as I am concerned. Precedent was set when Global Moderator Serenity treated my “like” as a serious position when she stated, “i have a problem with which you "liked".”
In the strictest terms, correct.Therefore you appear to have two opposing positions, it seems:
1. You stated that, “[You have] already said in this thread that what occurred was not racism.”
This is where you make a false assumption. Just because one poster applies a standard like that does not mean another does. Therefore, since this part of your supposition fails to have any validity, your presumption that there is a contradiction is false.2. By proxy supported the idea that the statement was racially based. You “Liked” and supported such views. The application of the “Serenity Like Standard” is applied here as a "matter of course".
Well, I do hope you enjoyed the interaction. Perhaps we can do it again.I have exercised the degree of respect, courtesy and tolerance which I would have expected and thank you once again for your interest in my views. I look forward to discussing other issues and topics with you in the future.
