I wish they pointed out the parts they were talking about. Had to watch twice to reasonably get the workings of those eyes.

Maybe you do not remember but some mod accused him of being "racist" and with no
warning he was banned. "Racist", that is funny cause he has hired more minorities
than any employer in the area.

#17 Indeed i dont remember any mod accusing him to be racist. I just remember that there were quite a few debates with other users. And as far as i see it..his account is not banned..wasnt even temporary banned.
