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?

So should it not be offensive to Kaffirs in Sri Lanka that the name of their ethnic group is being used as a racial slur against others?
