I'm still seeing violations in the last couple of pages.  I don't expect every single person responsible to rush to the forums, see this, and edit them out - but I do expect at least ONE person to be the adult in the room, demonstrate respect for the community, and REPORT those violations so that the thread can continue.   If nobody's willing to step up and report the violations that occur in here, there's little sense leaving it open.       If you guys want to talk...

 If you think culture is limited to things you can buy, you're doing it wrong. Culture is far more than food, music, and clothes - it's about values, traditions, customs - and, most importantly, a shared experience.  Sadly, confronting racism IS a shared experience, and it belongs in this thread far more than you do.

 He trolled this thread:   http://niketalk.com/t/651015/minnesota-family-pulled-over-police-shoots-man-for-getting-his-license-after-he-told-him-to-get-his-license/30#post_26149013  We don't ban people for their political views, and I think sometimes I can be patient to a fault with that.  Racism, however, is not a valid "political view," no matter how much certain politicians and voters would like to believe otherwise.  You can share different beliefs about the role of...
