thats what i would like to see as wll, let it die on its own unless it gets realy out of hand but that thread didn't in my opinion. I personally think racial topics are important to talk about and very entertaining as well.

I understand that, but I really doubt that adminmma himself would close those threads you closed bud, im just saying let people post their opinions.

People will start saying things that can get them banned. If you're saying in your head "Well I know I wouldn't do that...so why close it?". Because there are some stupid people on this forum that definately would do it. Bottom line, some threads just need to be closed dude. For the good of the forum and it's members.
Very well said!

Thanks dude. You made the right move. People can get WAYY outta hand when it comes to racial topics. Preventing an inevitable disaster was a good call.

And whether or not the discussion is good, people just get too crazy. You can't just sit back and wait for somebody to freak out. Preventing that crap is what the Mods are here for.

I'm a sociology major from UCSD, and from my experience, arguing about race, is like arguing about religion. Nobody convinces anybody, and it's a huge waste of time. The only way people really become convinced of racial inequality, is if they literally take some classes on it. Usually people who are extremely conservative will be very defensive to your opposing position, so he won't hear you out. But classes introduce the idea more neutrally, as opposed to these verbal debates that have a propaganda-esque vibe to it.

I gotta agree with the mod in this particular situation, because threads engulfed by politics/race/religion never die on its own.

That thread definitely needed to be closed. Intelligent discussion flew the coup in that thread a while ago. Honestly, it needed more talk of an all Bas Rutten channel.

It ended with someone quoting another and saying "I didn't write what you quoted." Clearly all the smart talkin' was done in there.
