>>1789>Ok, but first question: Does this pertain to ANY government, or just the US?
I don't see why it wouldn't apply to other countries. (Well, I suppose if you wanted to objectively discuss, e.g., the political situation of ancient Mesopotamia, or something else that nobody cares about and thus is unlikely to raise a shitstorm, that might be okay.)>>1789>And second, the way you just described, I would not be barred from discussing issues like racism
I'd guess that it depends on how closely your post is tied to political matters.
E.g., it would probably be okay for you to say something like, "Companies should try to recruit qualified minority candidates, because they represent an under-exploited talent pool that the company can profitably tap".
But it might not be okay for you for you to say something like, "Companies should continue affirmative actions programs, in order to help achieve racial justice", because that is tied closely to politics. (Why is it tied to politics? Because achieving racial justice doesn't help maximize shareholder wealth, so the immediately obvious reasons why a company would participate is such a scheme is political: either the gov't forces it to (obviously political), or it does to avoid customer boycotts (also political).)
