I think there's a fine line between freedom of speech & racism. I think those people crossed that line asking why a "wetback" or a "beaner" was singing the national anthem. So no I don't agree that they were using their freedom of speech properly & I'm glad Twitter deleted their accounts.



I don't use Twitter so I can't comment about the breastfeeding or other subjects but to be honest, I think the only reason Twitter took action was because this story was all over the media. I've never seen racism over any other thing or descrimination against breastfeeding on Twitter, Facebook or any other social media. Maybe that's why no one ever does anything of the matter. Imo, at least.

you said they crossed a line and didn't use it properly, implying you didn't like what they had to say. Doesn't change the fact that they have the right to say.

No I didn't like it, a lot of people didn't. Did I ever said they had no right saying that? No. Were they wrong imo, for saying that yes? Am I glad Twitter did something about it yes.



I'm sure a white woman wouldn't like me calling her a crackhead, trailer trash wh**e. I'm sure she wouldn't stay quiet and not tell me anything just because it's my right to speech. That's dumb.

That's not my problem. Just because it's a right doesn't mean that you don't speak up when they're abusing it.

what does being white have to do with being a crackhead or trailer trash? Even if she didn't like it you can still say it

Well, isn't that the stereotype of some white woman. I used it as an example? actually Googled it and that's what the Urban Dictionary came up with. :oops:

Speaking up, is NOT the same as censoring.
Twitter CEOs are in for a shit storm.

Lol. I haven't heard it being one. Maybe because of where I'm from crack heads are black, white women are meth heads.

I've seen white woman call themselves trailer trash wh**es on Jerry Springer, if that counts.
