Racism will not be tolerated.
Those are Ron's rules and will be strictly adhered to. This goes out to everyone on this forum. No one is above the law.
Racism is wrong and goes against the fabric of what we stand for here on this forum. We accept members from all backgrounds, races and upbringing. We are here because we appreciate bodybuilding. Bodybuilding is very much a niche sport with a cult following. In many circles, bodybuilding is seen as weird, taboo and downright strange. Getbig is here to not only change that perception, but to bring about its own twist involving humor, industry gossip and awareness.
So, in taking part in our mission to bring about awareness to bodybuilding, we won't backpeddle by being racially insensitive and showing the world that bodybuilding is filled with racial bigots. For crying out loud, more than half of the IFBB is made of pros that are of color (African Americans, Arabs, South Americans, Caribbean folk etc).
If you can't behave, get the fuck out. If you don't know how to treat other members with respect, regardless of their racial makeup, get the fuck out.
I have many friends outside of the boards and also on the forum of African American descent (Parker, Wiggs, G_Thang, BayGBM, Vince Goodrum etc.) and if any of you think I will sit around and allow them to be insulted by racist remarks, you are wrong.
Cut the shit out, it's stupid, childish and revealing of the lack of class that some of you have.
This place has always been filled with hateful racists and bigots.
Unfortunately this rule like many others will not be moderated with even hand.
