A thread in which a small number of posters argue over and over that dressing up as a fucking golliwog isn't racist and that those who disagree are troublemaking outsiders is not a productive nor civil thread; the only thing that distinguishes it from a Stormfront thread is that people here are actually allowed to argue with LucVdB and nemspyda. It doesn't help that they're basically just rephrasing "I don't see a problem with it and you're not qualified to object to it" over and over. It's actively insulting to other users, it's disgusting, and it accomplishes nothing but giving racists a platform from which to spew racism.
