    As I said what you wanted to achieve and what was being achieved are two completely different things. Never in the history of Finheaven has a thread with race or religion in the main forum ended without infractions and/or banning.

    I have reported the action to the admis, if they feel it was a wrong move one of them will reverse the decision but I wouldn't hold your breath bro.

    It just never ends well with these type of things and down here you are free to discuss whatever you want.

    I never understand why the Depths isn't more active. It was created as a place to let people vent about touchy subjects and have almost zero restriction on speech. People tend to view it as a punishment in this forum and that is completely false. It isn't a punishment to get a thread moved here it is liberating to be honest.

    In the Depths you can tell anyone you want to **** off and we aren't going to do anything about it.

    Why not make it a section in its own right? I mean its under "games and graphics" I never even knew it existed until you moved this and I had a look around.

    Well I wanted to change the name to Finhell. In heaven you behave and in hell you don't. Then maybe there could be sub section under Finhell. I'll bring it up to see if we can get a more organized Depths.

    I would love it when people just stopped seeing each other as black and white, it's idiotic. That guy can't succeed at qb, because he's black (Tell that to Warren Moon, and Steve McNair).....that guy can't succeed at WR because he's white (Tell that to Steve Largent and Fred Biletnikoff)

    It's no worse than when Cam Newton was being compared to Vince Young when it's obvious that their throwing mechanics are miles apart and even the way they run differs. Cam reminded me more of Roethlisberger coming out of college, but the only comparison you were going to hear was to another black qb from any of the talking heads. In both these cases it's ridiculous.

    Well there is a huge difference between saying someone is horrible because of color and describing someone using color. For example, "oh that white guy will never make it in the NBA because white guys cannot play in the NBA" is completely different than "Well the guy that robbed the bank was white and about 6' tall and was wearing".

    One is a generalization based on color and one is a descriptor based on color. It is the generalizations that lead to racism not the descriptors.

    Your right, but my point is not about discription, it's about generalizations. Giving a discription using race, height, and even nationality of someone nobody should have problem with.
