I’ve written before about the fact that the Progressive Minds blog has begun showing signs of significant bias. Despite their rules being stated as follows, I’ve noted that my posts are moderated and were often rejected though I only strived to make valid well thought out conversation points and did not violate any of their stated rules.
The purpose of this site is to promote critical thinking, constructive dialogue and progressive solutions on issues which affect Bermuda and Bermudians. To accomplish this we encourage
1. The use of repsectful language
2. Respect for individuals, particularly blog members and members of the community
We will not tolerate:
1. Name calling
3. Racial slurs
4. Personal attacks
Failure to comply may result in your removal from this blog.
Progressive minds blogger Vanz Chapman however has become notorious among the progressive minds blog readers I speak to as someone who can post unmoderated comments and often makes very racist, offensive and rediculous remarks such as “Why has limey and his cracker brigade infected the PLP blog” in June (though later modified to remove the work cracker) and now the following:
“something that most bdans have come to expect from the RG. but go ahead, do your thing. but considering that christian “hitler” dunleavy writes for the RG and who’s whole body of work both for his site and the RG seems to be one long angry white guy rant about how much he hates the bulk of black bda” (emphasis added)
If that doesn’t classify as name calling, a personal attack and quite possibly a racial slur than I really don’t know what does.
I have officially lost all respect for the youth wing of the PLP and by that regard I have lost respect for the PLP itself for allowing such hypocrisy to occur.
