And don't kid yourself: discussing racist/classist epithets is a political discussion, regardless whether or not the words "Democrat" or "Republican" are mixed in.
Does this apply to labeling the athletes of an entire nation? Not that I care about the Italian, Mexican or any South American soccer teams. Just want things to be consistent.
Cannot remember who said the above, but can that person step up and let us know if this thread is too political for their personal tastes? If not, perhaps they can make posts that turn the tide so that it will be shut down by a mod.
