As long as no double standards are in play, I agree about bans. But that's near impossible. And there's issues with humans measuring the threat of specific racism. Most people are conditioned to think talking about african americans, for instance, in a certain way is a lot worse than when an african american talks about a white person in an offensive way. Let's not forget too about weird grey area involving persons using race oriented comments about their own race. I've reported persons for refusing to stop with what I'd say was at the top of the offensive language list and they received no ban as they were back at it in no time. Too many things can be perceived as racist and argued both ways. It's not going to be something easily policed except in the most malicious of overt acts of racism.
