I hope so. I'm sure the creator of voat never imagined how bad it would get; the white supremacists groups came in all at once after stormfront got shut down. They don't really need to say anything to punish you for going against their worldview, they're the mods, and they have downvote brigades that effectively silence you.

I wouldn't mind a "report racist content" button, tbh.

Expressing racist ideas is not a crime. I don't advise it. But there are valid perspectives on all sides if you don't close yourself off to it, and whether you agree or not is up to you. If for no other reason that to understand their perspective to better argue against it rather than just repeat the same talking points they've already heard to no effect.

How would you argue against a Hindu family who only wants their child to marry another Hindu?

"Expressing racist ideas is not a crime." Actually, yes it is in my country (Canada) and I don't want my ip address connected with a site with a reputation for being white supremacist.

Saidit will also be blacklisted by Google and Patreon, etc.

You're jumping to supremacy when a lot of racism is not about supremacy. And often there are very valid reasons for racism, even if I don't agree with them. There's also valid reasons to fight harmful racism - like the prison industrial complex fueled by the racist judicial system in the USA.

I'm Canadian too, now in Windsor. We have a lot of stupid laws.

I used to live in Brampton which has a HUGE Indian population. I liked it a lot for a lot of reasons. I don't care if they want their kids to only marry other Indians or if they express that. But I have a problem with hypocrisy and if white folks who express their wish for a "pure bloodline" whatever that may mean, get demonized then that's bullshit. Power to them and their freedom to have preferences and expressions - even if I think they're retarded.

Google and Patreon are tools of the establishment which is manufacturing half the problems to keep us divided rather than focused on the exploitative elite puppet masters who intentionally create their order out of our chaos.

If "they" stop bombing or exploiting and oppressing those countries then those people will not flee their country as refugees thus creating a lot of turmoil at their destinations. The elites are stirring the pots to intentionally shit disturb so we will demand more authoritarian power be given to them. It's their cycle.
