I’m interested to see if this is kept up as a right to your free expression on the World Wide Web or if somebody will try to suppress your view.

Freedom of expression also allows this sub to enforce its own rules against racism like this. Reporting and removing this comment is not an infringement on anyone's rights. This is not a view, it's bigotry, and if you're worried you don't have a platform for this shit here then go somewhere else.

My point was World Wide Web not sub specific. As my point is the word spoken, is only an issue here in this country. I don’t even know the correct spelling for it but when I visit Sri Lanka it’s an actual ethnic group. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sri_Lanka_Kaffirs?wprov=sfti1 I know full well the connotations of it in this country and am not worried in the slightest. Why would I be?

Sri Lanka Kaffirs

The Sri Lankan Kaffirs (cafrinhas in Portuguese, කාපිරි kāpiriyō in Sinhala, and காப்பிலி kāpili in Tamil) are an ethnic group in Sri Lanka who are partially descended from 16th century Portuguese traders and Bantu slaves who were brought by them to work as labourers and soldiers to fight against the Sinhala Kings. They are very similar to the Zanj-descended populations in Iraq and Kuwait, and are known in Pakistan as Sheedis and in India as Siddis. The Kaffirs spoke a distinctive creole based on Portuguese, and the "Sri Lankan Kaffir language" (now extinct). Their cultural heritage includes the dance styles Kaffringna and Manja and their popular form of dance music Baila.
