Let me flip the coin over and ask the reverse question,....... if it's allowed.

I'm framing this question in the SAME manner as was posed to DU , only reversing the race question.

Why should white people as a group love black people as a group ? should they ?

the VAST majority of white people are not racist, bigoted or oppress black people as a function of our heritage. Yet, as a collective race, .......white people as a group .........are collectively accused of being racist, privileged and oppressive to black people.

I am not be a racist, .....bigoted nor white privileged,..... so in the eyes of DU, I simply "don't get it".

So, should white people love black people as a group ? If not, why not. If so, why so ?

HALT CITIZEN ! open discussion my ass.

regarding the jury system:

i just served on a jury. I think it makes a lot more sense to NOT show the name of the person with the post to be "juried".

I found the idea of hiding the post in question to be ridiculous, and seemed like it had to have been personal not really a reason to be "juried"

but- showing the name of the person who wrote the post being judged, gives people with personal axes to grind an opportunity to put that personal vendetta in play. Doesn't it make more sense to have the potentially offensive post anonymously judged for it's content and not for WHO wrote it ?

i think anonymously is fair, it would keep people from a "revenge hide", and it also would remove the ability to protect offensive speech just because of on online friendship.
