Good day for a choke hold

Many of the posts included in the database, available here, are disturbingly violent, and often target African Americans, activists, Hispanics, immigrants, Muslims, LGBT people, and women.

“Good Day for a Choke Hold”:

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
