    Issues of race. YOU MUST READ THIS THREAD BEFORE POSTING!

    We on BGP are here for one general reason, we love High School sports, we are also lucky enough to have other boards of interest to share views and perspective on a variety of issues. But sometimes we need a reminder of what we are all about here on Bluegrasspreps.com, sports.

    On BGP we are all on a team, and as in life on this team there are players of every background, color, and creed. As such there are rules to being on this team, one of those rules is this:

    3. No profanity, name calling, personal attacks, derogatory or disparaging remarks about anyone's username or school or comments about anyone's race, religion, nationality, creed or sexual orientation will be tolerated.

    So think about what you are about to post before you post it. Many times recently issues involving of race have produced comments that can be offensive to our fellow teammates here on BGP, and that is not what we are about!

    Bottom line, if there is no reason to mention race, then don't, and if you have an opinion about someone and race is a factor in that opinion then keep that post to yourself if it is not constructive or positive. BGP is a place where we came together to discuss sports, not to hurt each others feelings or spread ignorance.

    Excellent RAM95, I was brought up and still do believe that we are equal, I'm no better than anyone and no one is better than me.

    We are supposed to be judged by our personalities, morals, values and what type person we are, not the color of skin.

    I'm well no comment, but i just don't think men from mars(or as some people refer to them marshans), if they exist, are really gonna be all that much smarter than us, i mean we don't even use half our brains and look what we can still think up. Now i know this is about race, and not planets, just wanted to get that off my chest

    For the moment, we are allowing discussion of race relations. We are doing this even though it is a sensitive area, because we also feel that it is an important topic. By participating in a racially sensitive thread, you give your implicit understanding that the thread is a forum for discussion, not a soapbox from which to rant. Only by having constructive discussion, will we accomplish anything. Anything else will only serve to close these types of threads.
