Does a post offend you? Don't read it! Does a thread topic offend you? Don't open it! Or better yet -- make a better argument to the contrary and join the debate!
Sad that there is no place for free expression in this world anymore, everything (even FACTS) is/are called 'racism' - 'sexism' - 'bigotry' - 'homophobia' - Essentially there is no way to have a reasoned, critical debate of the issues anymore without someone (generally the loser of the argument) crying foul and using hyperbolic PC terms to describe the winner.
You have no 1st amendment rights on a privately owned forum. Just like if you walk into WalMart and start screaming racist crap, they have every right to kick you out since you're on private property.
