I'm sorry to see you leave this way. You are extremely resistant to the idea of systemic racism, and that frustrates a lot of people, similar to how you probably are frustrated when you have to deal with people who cannot grasp the idea of systemic wealth disparity.

I don't know if we would have been able to have a more open discussion if there weren't any threats of banning and use of (adequately descriptive, but emotionally loaded) words like "racism" and "queerphobic". It's my assumption that it would be, but I might be wrong. Maybe time and life experience are required.

In any case, sorry it has come to that (but I'm glad it wasn't a ban at least), but it is not because class reductionism is correct. And the issue of moderation remains an issue, but that doesn't mean your comments weren't indeed problematic.
