The Cows are chiming in from the pastures
there are many dynamics going on here.... per usual It wouldnt be Da Pee if it were'nt!
Tony Mundaca has a history (both here and on other boards which he has been permanently banned from) of insistent posting of his ideologies. Few embrace his viewpoints (when he actually has them ), many don't.
However, as a testament to DHP and people who make DHP what it is have provided a platform for Tony to do what he is KNOWN for doing, and have endured his proselytizing, his attempts at indoctrination, promotion of extremely offensive POV's (in lieu of what he is posting .... here), and he recalcitrance and indignation when requested by Admins to chill.
But engagement of ideas is what makes us... Da Pee. People (some not all) are offended by his threads and posts. People are sometime exhausted by it and thus sometimes Tony needs a time out because he does not respect the requests from the Admins.... BUT
What he posts about is out there in the world. Its prevalent too. Should he have been banned? Well.... Tony is a passive aggressive coward who's sole purpose to to hit your over the head with a soft bat ...so to speak. but should he be banned for
having unpopular views, or because he posts offensive and/or controversial material WITHOUT engaging in conversation with those who he offends or challenges?
I dont think Sha-Rock would have banned him if she saw him actually exchanging dialog and engaged in the exchange of ideas no matter how offensive they may be. Thats not his M.O. Tony posts topics that he knows is going to offend people and rather than respond and engage in dialog, conversation, exchange of ideas, or ANY sort of tangible conversation... he retreats to video, pics, and quotes from other sites and or people. TONY MUNDACA VERY SELDOMS IF AT ALL engages ANYONE on here about the controversial material or subjects he posts about. And then when in danger of getting his account deactivated he will post about Music thinking this will calm the savage Kneegrows.
I do not believe Tony and his kind should be bannned for posting what may be potentially offensive or controversial on a BOBO sit (Black Owned/Black Operated)... IF he actually engages the people who challenge him on his bullshit!
I do agree with Ray that he has a right to post racist, unpopular, religious, or bs topics here under the guidelines, but I will add this ... ONLY HE ACTUALLY ENGAGES THE PEOPLE HE OFFENDS!
What he does is no different than a person yelling Nigger out of a window in a moving car on street that has all green lights!
If all he is going to do is post offensive and controversial material without engaging the people who he offends or challenges then what contribution is he really?
We are a better community if we can engage and exchange convo and ideas about that which challenges us, Emotionally, Mentally, and Intellectually.
The manner in which Tony Mundaca engages and chooses to exist on Deephousepage.com limits our ability to fully express ourselves in the manner that would allow growth. Thats what all of this is about any way, right?
So should Tony be banned? well... if all He is gonna do is yell Nigger out of a moving car on a street with all green lights? and not get out the car, and discuss his actions then Yes...
Tony has sparked some fantastic controversial debates which he neglected cowardly not to be a part of...
We can't insulate ourselves from the uncomfortable and controversial stuff, and should meet it squarely where it resides... however, we also should have an opportunity to do so... What Tony Mundaca does here, removes the possibility for that...and I believe that is what Timmy and Shalewa actions spoke to.
A Catalyst ... Yes
A Contribution.... TBD.
