    Is this ok? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here.

    Tom/zulu says I need to respect this opinion and that's ok. Am I offbase here? Are these comments fine? Is this the type of moderation and acceptance of things in the utopia community now?

    Definition of racism (from https://www.dictionary.com/browse/racism)
    “A belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.”

    Quotes by Mike-V last night with URLs to where he said them so you can see context.

    https://discord.com/channels/3982114...30711713923073
    “Black people […] do not fit in the wests culture as they love taking drugs, commiting (sp) crime, and killing each other as they know that black lives do not matter”
    https://discord.com/channels/3982114...67433260941373
    “The reason why.so.many blacks are in prison is because they are criminals […] They just want to be criminals instead. And it is a culture thing I suspect. It is why there are so.many massacres Nd why Africa is a **** hole. If it it was not people would stay there”
    https://discord.com/channels/3982114...68176344809523
    “Frankly blacks don't improve themselves on purpose in general and they love killing each other as they know black lives don't matter”
    https://discord.com/channels/3982114...70153879191612
    “Id suggest the blacks run the usa for a year but Africa is a **** hole so I would not”
    https://discord.com/channels/3982114...71277616726016
    “So black massacres. If they happened, it shouldn't have made much if a difference because Hitler gassed a lot of Jews and they are doing very well for themselves.”

    I believe the servers official stance is:

    "As stated earlier, stop personally attacking people and respect their opinions. If you cannot, then this channel will either be slow moded, chat restrictions will be put into place, or will be removed all together."-tom

    "Everyone needs to respect each others opinions here whether you like them or not. Keep things civil and constructive. If not, ill shut the chat down. If you have true serious issues with someones perspective you have several options..take it to pm...shut up and leave it be...or gtfo."-tom

    Drama drama!

    But no, clearly those opinions worded like that are or should at least be against the rules. But obviously this MIke-V guy is an idiot troll.

    Looks like Tom deleted the whole channel, so the above links are dead. Quotes are still accurate.

    Can't post in the channel cuz it was deleted, but holy **** what was I witnessing?

    In response to a message that is in the text of the first post here:
    (Can't figure out how to make this image embed) https://i.imgur.com/Wun4yRt.jpg

    Imagine demanding someone apologize for calling you a racist because they provided 5 quotes of you that only perfectly fit the dictionary definition of racism, rather than the legal definition (Which applies differently everywhere, if at all), and then continuing as if everything is fine and you “won” the exchange. (Then bringing in terms like "slander" and "libel" which have very specific legal definitions that wouldn't apply since the evidence was... evident... but that's just an aside)

    Then everyone seems to go on as if this racism is fine as long as it isn't "legally defined" racism, whatever the **** that means, and this individual is qualified to discuss racial disparity and other such topics.
