Supressing Racism?

I am one-hunnit picent against racim. However, I am also 100% all for free speech, including racist speech. Racism will not end simply by eliminating a person’s right to be racist. Let’s imagine that the internet successfully bans racist speech. How will we be able to prove that racism still exists? I feel that by banning racist hate speech on the internet, we are actually counteracting the fight against racism.

For example, Black people are always saying that White people don’t know what it’s like to be Black. If all racist speech is banned from the internet then how will we ever be able to comprehend the plight of Black people

However, racist speech that is perpetrated in person, invading another person’s physical space is a direct attack against that person, and this should not be acceptable…

Racism will only be expelled through open discussion and education.
