I put a filter on my blog so when someone sends in a comment, I have to approve it before its posted. I got three email alerts last week where someone commented on a post I created in February of 2008 Subway (Link Here).
The comments were from someone who obviously has had a LOT of experience with Subway restaurants, probably running one, but his experience were not so good. The thing that keeps me from hitting the publish button is the obvious rant-like quality of the comments.
If I post this stuff, it makes me look like I have endorsed these ranting, xenophobic views this guys holds. On the other hand, everyone IS entitled to their opinion, even if I don't endorse or believe everything this person says.
Here's how the first post starts off:
"Subway is dominated by Indian owners. Why would I bring that up? Because it's probably not well known, and if you're interested in owning a Subway, you better have a lot of cash, an inside track, and get along very well with Indians (East Indians, not American Indians). You might think that's racist, but it's not. It's the truth."
I think the best way to tell someone you hold racist views is to predicate your statement with "...this may sound racist..., or...you may think that's racist...".
Maybe I will publish them, maybe I won't. Tell me if I should.
