I've been on a couple of writing forums in the past, and what I've noticed is when I identify myself as black, in any way, shape, or form (pictures, name, etc.); whites use this as an excuse to take cheap shots at me on-line.

Thinking they're clever they'll make sublime animal references and things of that nature; so much so that I think I'm going to be done with writing forums altogether.

So, has anyone else experienced this...or is it just me?

Wow, that's disturbing.

Stick to AW. I don't think you'll find much of that sort of thing here. We are a friendly and well-intentioned bunch, though there may, of course, be a few bad apples.

I find it hard to believe that members of a writing forum would make "animal references." I think of writers as being beyond that sort of thing, but perhaps I'm na´ve.

Sound like pretty shitty forums. I've never had that issue.

Closed this for the moment while I sort things out.

If you have a problem with another user's words on this forum, please PM a moderator or report the post using the little red and white triangle icon under the offending post's user avatar. In general starting a new post in a new subforum to complain about it is not the way to way to make the forum a more respectful place.

Yeah. You're a liar.

Also, you're an abusive, sneaky, nasty little troll -- and you're no longer welcome on this site..
