    Racism on The Kennel is absolutely not OK and will not be tolerated.

    Repeat offenders will have even longer lengths.

    Please report any racism you see and it will be dealt with.

    Thanks

    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

    (in response to the above quote)

    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.
