According to Yahoo Answers The Yahoo Corporation has several U.S. offices with the main headquarters located in Sunnyvale and with also other offices located in Santa Monica, CA, San Francisco, CA, Burbank, CA, San Diego, CA, Hillsboro, OR, Orlando, FL, and in New York, NY.  However though this corporation has a widespread influence it seems it is also influenced by racism and prejudice as well.  Let me show you.

I wrote a simple question on one of its sites known as Yahoo Answers.  The question went like this:

Which African-American or Black man would be perfect for Jennifer Aniston?

No harm was ever intended. [continued below]....

..... Neither was any hateful speech found in the question either.  It was simply a question to gauge the community's response and to show that there are alternatives in terms of men for women who are out there especially with those whom we call "celebrities."  Well to my surprise this is the response I got back from Yahoo Answers.  Have a look.

Hello XXXX

The question on Yahoo Answers was reported and deleted by one or more trusted members of the Answers community:

"Which African-American or Black man would be perfect for Jennifer Aniston?"

This question has been removed and 10 points have been deducted from your account.


I am posting this up here because it has created a great offence with me and has caused me to be very upset over it.  It has revealed to me that there is an underlying current of racism and prejudice going on within the Yahoo environment.  Why should a simple question worthy of simple constructive discussion (note the word constructive) be deleted when no harm came with it-unless someone does not want the idea of talking about African-American men with one of their more popular Caucasian "celebrities."  No matter this is now going to be evidence for the deep offence of racism and prejudice it seems that Yahoo Answers wants to indeed create.  It seems that they have a lot to "answer" for in regards to this subject as a whole.

 Its not racism, its ANTI-RACISM!! Or zero tolerance. If someone was offended by your question even though no offence was intended then they are going to respond like this. They take a ZERO tolerance approach to racism. You can complain all you like but it STILL wont change that SOMEONE was offended by your question. Just because YOU did not intend for this to be offensive doesnt mean that it wasnt offensive to others.
