A Statement from the VCC Admins
This wasn't something we were planning on addressing since VCC isn't the place to be discussing sensitive political issues, but since the issue has come directly to our shores, we figure it's best to speak up about it.
Firstly, we would like to make it known that the Void Century Club admins unanimously stand in full support of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement which seeks to bring about racial equality not just in the United States, but around the world. We pride ourselves on creating a friendly, welcoming environment and a large part of that is making sure we have a space where members are treated equally regardless of race, background or sexual orientation.
Secondly, after careful consideration, we must ask all of our users to refrain from making any public posts or statuses discussing the current issues surrounding BLM or the protests taking place around the world, and to refrain from posting about racial politics in general. This is not to censor opinions. We are aware that, despite our stance on the issue, politics surrounding race will always be an incredibly sensitive and divisive issue.
Thirdly, we would like to make it crystal clear that anyone found to be making blatantly racist or hateful comments on Void Century Club will be banned permanently and without hesitation. Whilst we understand that people will have different views on the same subject, we will not tolerate the promotion of hateful attitudes within our community.
Finally, for those of you who wish to support protests not just taking place in the United States, but around the world, we provide a link that includes links to petitions and donation schemes for various global political issues, including: the BLM protests (not only to protestors, but to businesses affected by riots and looting), the Junk Terror Bill in the Philippines and to the protests in Hong Kong.

Sending our love to all of you,
Chaud, Jacky, Marco and Rio, The VCC Admins.
