Um...I do thump my Bible. Please don't include that in a list of negative stereotypes.
I find that religiously-charged language!
Your point on the racially-charged language is spot-on. The thread title should be changed, a note that it was should be left in that first post, and the author should be rebuked.
Frankly, I had never heard the term before and assumed that it was some slang with which I was unfamiliar that merely referred to a generic riot. My mind just works that way. I assume the best in people until they prove otherwise. All too often that proof is a short time coming.
The poster should be ashamed of himself. Based on prior experiences with him, I suspect that he will not be.
