I once started a poll called Gary Johnson's origin, as I wanted to know if he's Hispanic.
(The answer is obviously "no".)
Having been asked why I stated such a question, I replied that, in my estimation, Johnson looks like a Hispanic, and in this case he could become the first Hispanic vice-presidential nominee in case Ron Paul wins the primaries.

That comment of mine has been deleted, defying any explanation, and to top it all off I even received 6 (six) infraction points.
Why?

No.  It is by definition discriminatory, but it isn't necessarily hateful.  When I discriminate between nickels and dimes prior to rolling my coins, choosing nickels to fit into the fatter paper rolls and dimes to fit into the skinnier ones, it is not based on hate.  Same with noting hispanic:  unless I think everyone looks hispanics, then I am discriminating.  Hate is another issue.  And hate can be discriminatory or non-discriminatory.  I know some real assholes who hate everyone, for example.

Also, as an aside, it can be tricky to identify those who "look hispanic."  Have you ever been to Spain?  Lots of folks there are Hispanic--Like, 88 percent of the population, basically everyone except the African, Gipsy, and British minorities --but most of them are of the type you'd not probably not identify as "looking hispanic" I'd imagine.

I've figured out the "mistake".

I ought to have written:

He looks Hispanic, instead of He looks like a Hispanic.

Or better yet, either of those instead of "Johnson looks a bit like a spic", which is what you actually said.  Nice attempt at revisionism, though.

And what Mikado said.

And as I suggested, the facts matter don't they?  Smiley

Do "they" give out death points for self serving false and misleading thread headlines, which tend to impugn and malign another poster or posters? They should. This sucks. Really.

How am I to know that?

How did you learn the word 'spic'?

During my school exchange to Texas ten years ago, and via YouTube.

I always thought spic were a short form of Hispanic.

I believe the simple truth is that they became somewhat alarmed when they realized that I really meant to write what I believed. There is a peculiar parallel between some of our great Northern "liberals" and some of our outstanding Southern liberals.

Some of the people in both classes share the deep-seated convictions that only their convictions can possibly be the right ones. They both inevitably say the same thing: "We know the Negro and what is best for him."

You posted this same thread on the Atlas subforum. You know the first time I saw this I thought you were misguided and accidentally mis-spoke because you are German. Then when I told you the word you used was offensive you challenged me on it, in stead of saying "oh, sorry". Only after I googled it, did you say "how was I supposed to know" (not even "oh sorry") Now I find this thread? And, I find this thingy Mikado has pointed out? I'm starting to think this is less of an accident and more of you trying to stir up trouble.

Also there was the whole thing about fascists being good because they cared about their autochthonous populations.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

PRO = Pro Deutschland and FREIHEIT (Freedom/Liberty) are basically softcore-Nazis.

No, they are the last democratic parties that care for the autochthonous population of Germany.

PRO Deutschland and Freiheit are all through democratic parties.
Your reproach of fascism is unjustified.
