    I personally think being pc at all costs just adds further delays on people overcoming race issues but i guess that is an issue for the politics forum.
    I agree with you that we should not just mod everything and I very rarely mod anything. As I said this did not offend me put the potential to really offend others is what made me do it. We will see what Jensen says and leave it at that.

    FYI I really enjoy the MMA forum, good insight and information from knowledgeable people.

    In terms of the situation in this thread I'd much rather have Ugly see the post and edit it out, rather than leave it there and then have someone go absolutely nuts over the use of the word and then have to deal with those ramifications.

    As Ugly does point out this isn't a little clubhouse, its a public section of the message board and thereby subject to the same moderation standards (by all moderators) as any other section of the board.

    Had the same post been made in the college section I'd have edited the word out as well.

    Big Win is preparing a statement. In the mean time, however, is the word Negro OK or is that also out of bounds?

    Don't push it? Can I get clarification on what it is that I am pushing? Not in private, right here in the open so that were all clear on what's out of bounds and what's not.

    Look Jensens, I'm not trying to rock the boat. Perhaps your life experiences have caused you to fear that word. Mine haven't. As a matter of fact, I only find specific instances when the context is negative that there should be any issue at all. With that said, its your site and you make whatever rules you wish. I'm not asking for you to change any rules rather let us know what and why we can't use certain words. I don't see the difference in writing a word out or merely using the first letter of the word. Either way you've used the word.
    Lets go Brent!

    Ding ding ding! Give this man a prize. I totally agree.

    "As a black man from south central Los Angeles, by way of Southern Alabama I feel pretty strong about this topic. Being afraid of the word in discussion gives it power. We call that white fear of white women taking black penis, thus they become apologists to the black man when the black man isn't even here nor is being implicated. Are we really to believe that everyone is so sensitive and considerate in their real lives, that we have to abreviate words because they would otherwise be offended?

    I'm a black man yall and I take offense that the word is out of bounds"

    Thank You Big Win, as a fellow muli, I couldn't agree more.
