Let's hope thekennel is one of the few (or only) websites or organisations to be consistent on racism which includes racism against white people (for example, the expression white privilege is one of the most racist smears around, but has been accepted as an acceptable term because most websites/organisation are too cowardly to call out racism in both directions.

It's very easy to call out the racism when it's racism that fits the narrative (i.e. BLM).

Let's hope the kennel has some back bone and polices this issue fairly and consistently.

Some recent examples that copped 1 week off

Fuck these white c*** bra
Watching Smith doing the warm-ups. Fuck me, the grub is a deadset primate. Wouldn't be at all surprised if he picks his arse and eats it or throws faeces at his neighbours.
Belongs in Taronga.

Nah, that's Adam Goodes's deal

It should be common sense. Don't use racial slurs, don't compare people to animals, don't attack anyones racial background. It doesn't do anyone any good, especially not the forum as a whole.

wait, insulting the white race is actually defined as a racial slur now?

2020 keeps delivering.

Racism should earn an automatic minimum 6 month ban imo.

Who were the low breeds who partook in it?

Any insults based on race is racist.

I tend to agree but we like to at least give people a chance to reform. Some of the people banned recently have no prior incidents. I won't name names that doesn't help anything.

Well done Papa and the mods for taking this stance. Very impressed you boys are being so serious about this. Kudos.

Feel you guys can get the rough end of the stick sometimes but really pleasing seeing you've done this. Well done.

Wouldn’t hurt to address some of the language on here either, which gets directed to certain posters.

This is something we have constantly battled with here and we do try to address. We can't see everything though, so if you see something you think we should address please report it.

Sometimes we will decide that deletion is all that is required, but if it is really bad or a repeat offender we will dish out bans.

Love how people only care now its a world wide social justice issue. Should have been stamped out in 2003 when the forum was made.

Personally applaud that these steps are being made at all. Can look back and say should've, could've etc. but all we can really judge is what they're doing now.
