You truely are getting your wee-wee in a froth,as we say in Australia, and are clearly out of balance and off topic on this.
This list is about GOPHER not cancel culture and american political bipartisanism.
please dont forget that mate.
Many of us know Christoph is communist. I dont agree with the majority of his views.
That does not give anyone here Or myself the permission to pick appart his gopher selector, and commit eisegesis when you've been Told and its obvious it is humour!(regardless if youre devoid of a sense of humour or not)
If you have woke concerns with him about some humour he has on his own hole, even after youve been told its nothing to do with darwinian theory of evolution('race') then take it up with him directly, instead of crucifying him publicly for something you've
been told wasnt motivation.
Youve been told its not what youre thinking. If you disagree,despite being told its not what you are telling yourself, take it off list up with him.
and get some sleep over this passover/easter w-end.

Spreading racism helps nothing and nobody. It has no place in
Writing Gopher patches to software is great, but that doesn't mean
that racism and sexism must accompany it.
I want to assure everyone, lurkers and regular participants, that
Christoph Lohmann does not speak for this community, that racism
has no place in this or any other Open Source community, and that
you are not alone in your feeling of revulsion at it.
I have no respect for racists and no desire to work with people
that seek to use technical lists to spread racism, regardless of
what their Free Software activities are. Free Software is about
treating people ethically and making the world a better place, and
racism and sexism are antithetical to these aims.
