Censorship for the protection of whiteness, a quite popular way to restrict free critical speech.
White people don’t have problems to talk about race. They do it frequently: They talk against Al Sharpton, against Affirmative Action and so on.
But they don’t want to be challenged. They want to talk about race their own way, no, this way isn’t ‘calm or rational’, but racist or condenscending.
People who don’t just listen to this but challenge this are unwanted.
Challenged people in denial get defensive when they are called out or when their contradictions are highlighted.
First there are warnings. Attempts to confine the critic. The critic is called the ‘aggressor’ or is blamed to start a fight, or to disrupt, to be a troll or whatever they feel free to call you.
Then comes the censorship of posts [see above]
and finally on message boards “You are banned”.
And no, if anybody wonders, this is not because of style. It’s because of what’s being said and this is what they don’t want to hear.
