Hypocrisy reigns at DU....yes, really...

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Hassin Bin Sober (a host of the 2016 Postmortem forum).

There was a jury decision to hide this thread

Yet another jury decision to NOT hide this thread

Who's threatened by "identity politics" here?

I'm very confused, can someone help me out?

1. Juror #3.

 

...Sorry, it's a DU in-joke of sorts. Sort of like cornflake-breaded breastfeeding pit bulls at olive garden.

2. It would be hypocisy if it was the same 7 jurors

But presumably it was different sets of 7 jurors. Both posts were very divisive.

3. Sometimes our jury system works.

Sometimes hosts block META.
Either can be confusingly clear.

4. The confusion may be due to your examples of hypocrisy, which they aren't. eom

5. Well, actually yes

The jury system would be DU's, in this case, I'm not, per se, looking at individual jurors.

A post that contained some of the most racist stereotypes of African-Americans was allowed to stand. (I'm a black person that doesn't support Clinton, for example, but I was included in that assault and that questioning)

A post that characterized some Bernie Sanders supporters as (somewhat) stereotypical "angry white men" was not allowed to stand and was hidden
