Why do these youngsters all believe Cassius Clay was some kind of elusive, defensive wizard ?

    What rich white person was Clays family slaves to that allowed him to pick the name?

    Mods he's been here for nearly half a year, spouting racist comments and inflaming racial tensions, can something please be done about him? This is beyond ridiculous.

    I dunno. He's irritating and has received temp bans in the past, but what racist things has he said in this thread?

    I agree calling Ali Clay is ridiculous, but it's hardly a banning offense.

    Which post would you point towards in this thread that is racist?

    , don't call Ali "Clay" any more, it's upsetting people and is not helpful.

    A diplomatic shot across the bow.

    Well played.

    For someone whose father served proudly in Vietnam I find this post very offensive. How dare you call the men fighting for the USA baby killers and warmongers. Have you no shame sir? The men were drafted & sent to war. They put their lives on the line and served. Show some respect. They earned it! Especially on Vietnam War Day that yesterday was.

    Despicable! Stop libeling the Vietnam War vets. Allowing this is disgraceful.

    The way you paint God fearing men who served and gave their lives for this country is every bit as vile as the racism you decry. Shameful!

    And there's your problem in a nutshell. Some people think calling Ali Clay is vile; some people think decrying the memory of Vietnam vets is vile. Opposing points of view probably none more valid than the other.

    Staying off politics is probably your best bet in Classic.
