The Political forum tends to send a clear message that labelling people by skin colour and supposed extremist politics is an everyday part of American life. To me its like revisiting 1960s America 50 years later. Is this simply because the Political forum has been hijacked by an eccentric group of "traders" who are bigoted and in some cases clearly racist in nature ? Or is this really America today ? I don't expect much from the forum when moderator TGregg is also describing what a "typical poor young black man" represents in the discussion. How about a disturbing stereotype that provides a platform for racists to spew their views ? If a representative of Elite Trader posts this kind of stuff, well, it say a lot about what is wrong with this site or America. Not sure which at this point, the discussion is so vile at times and not many people bother to counter it.
