By all accounts, this is a terrible tragedy - and one that should not be compounded through hatred. I want to be very clear about this: we absolutely will NOT tolerate any hate speech on our forums.
If you think this gives you a green light to start Muslim bashing, log out and do not return. Go post over on Stormfront. Hate speech is NOT acceptable on NikeTalk under any circumstances.
Around the world, over 1.6 billion people practice Islam. Of that 1.6 billion, less than 20% hail from the Middle East and more than two-thirds call Asian countries home. It shouldn't even require stating that the OVERWHELMING majority of Muslim people around the world are, in fact, OPPOSED to hideous acts of violence.
Violent acts committed in the name of a particular religion are deplorable, but they are not an excuse for racism and hateful stereotype.
I understand that emotions can run raw, especially for those concerned for friends and family in the area. However, anyone who chooses to comment here must do so in a respectful manner.
If you come across any comments that violate NikeTalk's rules, including and especially our rules prohibiting hate speech, please use the flag/report button to bring it to the staff's attention.
