Sirc has the right to make racist statements. I do not believe he is, in fact, a racist. He is playing with fire, though.

    Someone cannot knowingly make racist statements and use racial slurs as insults, then have someone say he isn't racist. Sirc should and does have the right to say it. But he also has the obligation to take responsibility for it. If he is making racist statements because he wants and knows he will get a reaction from it, then he is racist.

    Free speech does not mean speech without consequence. People do and should have the right to make racist statements. But they also need to accept that other people will judge them for their statements and a treat them accordingly.

    No, he's being a troll.

    If he says racist things because he believes them, then that means he is racist. If he's saying them to piss people off, that means he is being very classically Sirc and you people need to toughen up your e-skins.

    It doesn't invalidate your point, though. There are standards of decency, and he clearly violated those. Trolling or not, I don't condone his words. Many think he went too far. I agree.

    It is a common misconception that people have the right to say whatever they want because they can, etc etc.
    Unless you have moved to one of several countries in Europe without telling us you are simply factually incorrect under US constitutional law.

    What he said.

    The FBI is generally in charge of prosecuting "Hate Crimes" or "Violation of Civil Rights" and from their website:
    The First Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees the right to free speech. It is not generally a crime to express intolerance toward others because of their race, religion, color, or ethnicity. However, it is against the law to engage in criminal acts based on intolerance.
