How can I put this in a way you’ll understand?

Is this calling pizza preemptively? A hypothetical:

Imagine there’s a book series you love that has had representations of you since the beginning, when it was extremely controversial to do so. They do not kill or even have a bad ending for said characters! They’re portrayed, for once, as loving, decent people who aren’t primarily a movie villain/magic user. 

But there’s a popular list you’ve been on for over 10 years that you had to stop being active in, because a very few people kept using the n-word, uncensored, and no one else said anything. You tried a few times, but were told you were just a bit sensitive. 

One of those users being temp-banned for spamming nonsense was when you went to lurking more and more. 

You keep coming back, hoping, because times they are a’changing in some ways, but nothing has changed. 

Do continuing slurs and bigotry rate Pizza?
