Problem with a user list

This list https://www.imdb.com/list/ls098491520/ by a user makes reference that IMDb has taken a particular position on a hot social topic here in he United States. While this position may be indeed IMDb's view, the user has no right to assume so, nor put his opinion that it is indeed your view. He states: "We here at IMDb strongly condemn all forms of racism and injustice"
I request that the list be deleted.

Also the list in my opinion is very insensitive in it's wording and the choices that it asks the list viewer to make.

Example: the user asks you to chose where, "The black character wins" is your favorite.
And one of the choices is '12 Years a Slave'. This is extremely insensitive. It is not in the spirit of racial equality.

It looks like I'm not the only one speaking for IMDb.



^ I'm also a member of the poll board; I don't remember wishing anything to anyone. Which IMDb poll board are you referring to?

You see. You are doing what a person does when confronted with the truth.
Deflect.
An IMDb Champion (Peter) asked that I NO LONGER use We Here at IMDb.
I complied and adjusted it to "We here at the IMDb Poll Board"
You can see this at the bottom in the last poll. Yep you missed it. You tried and failed to make any point at all with these photos.

You have created an extremely insensitive poll. Twice no less.
You need to close the poll and voluntarily delete the list please.

"Failed to make a point" and "failed to get the point" are two different things. :)

Yes they support the African American Community.
But nowhere is #BlackLivesMatter

You used #BlackLivesMatter. IMDb DID NOT.
Your poll is insensitive and crass.
It needs to be closed again.
If you can actually come up with a better poll idea, do it.
But this poll is just plain BAD.
Do Not use the George Floyd's name. He is not in entertainment.
He is a news item. Not an entertainment item.
A poll should NOT be created using this tragedy as a basis EVER!

That's just a point of view.

You see it as a tragedy poll. I see it as a memorial poll.

Your lack of sensitivity astounds.
My point of view is fact.
A memorial poll has to relate to him.
We know NOTHING about him.
How can you honor him then if you have no reference point?
You cannot.
Again since you failed to read this above.

Do Not use the George Floyd's name. He is not in entertainment.
He is a news item. Not an entertainment item.


And if you are purporting to say that he is somehow now a celebrity because of this tragedy then you need to take stock of your morals

The text that Ed was reporting no longer exists on the poll, so I'm closing this one.
