    It is a fact that there is quite of bit of contextual usage of feces to refer to the skin of blacks in a derogatory fashion. Here's a reference for you in case you need one:

    http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/****skin



    Also chocolate has been used to refer to blacks, although not necessarily in a derogatory way. Here's a reference for you that you may be familiar with

    CNN.com - Nagin apologizes for 'chocolate' city comments - Jan 17, 2006

    As I have said before, the cartoon makes subtle associations between to Obama, chocolate, and feces. As such, given the contextual usage of the terms, as I have demonstrated, there is good reason to say that it is racist. I don't object to those who feel the opposite. What I object to is the insistence that it is absurd to view it in that way. And IF your contention is that there are an enormous amount of assumptions that one must make in order for it to be seen as racist, I object to that also.
    The term that is blocked is $HIT$KIN.

    Not for nuthin' but if I was you, I'd have gone with "high carbon steel" because it gets much sharper than mild steel. Mild steel is suitable for letter openers but will never end up being the sharpest knife in the drawer. That's from a knifemaker's perspective, of course.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    So you are familiar with welding? A welder told me about mild steel.

    Mild steel is great for welding. You don't have to worry about blowing the heat treat and temper so much with mild steel when you're welding it. Mild steel is soft and malleable. If you want something sharp, though, you need high carbon steel (with a good heat treatment) instead of mild steel (that doesn't get much benefit from heat treatment since there's not enough carbon to convert to martensite (or bainite)

    Buyer beware. That's all I can tell you about that. Do your research.
