Is this racist 2

In my effort to stimulate a vigorous racial discussion on the board. I offer this topic for your enjoyment.

Black Philadelphia police sue over message board, say it's racist - CNN.com



(CNN) -- A group of black Philadelphia police officers filed a federal lawsuit Thursday against their department, alleging an online forum geared toward city police is "infested with racist, white supremacist and anti-African-American content."



The suit alleges white officers post on and moderate the privately operated site, Domelights.com, both on and off the job.

Domelights' users "often joke about the racially offensive commentary on the site ... or will mention them in front of black police officers," thus creating "a racially hostile work environment," according to lawyers for the all-black Guardian Civic League, the lead plaintiff in the suit.





Whatchall think?

I think an all-black guardian ciivic league is racist. I wouldn't know about the message board because I don't know the facts.

If the message board isn't city owned then where is the basis of a law suit?
