Nearly always, these people are stating racist and ignorant opinions, and any discussion turns into name-caling and then you are blocked.
There's no intimate personal aspect to such questions, so why allow them from anonymous posters?

If they are blatantly racist or xenophobic, then yes of course they should be removed. But I don't think questions or posts that mention race or ethnicity in a non offensive way should be banned. That's way to "big brother" like for me and would just further the whole agenda of political correctness in my opinion - by banning any subject that could potentially hurt the precious little feelings of sensitive people.
Anons do make up a good portion of the trolls here though which is why I believe that option should just be limited to the relationship and sex topics (because of the intimate nature of those topics), and eliminated everywhere else on the website. I don't know if that's ever going to happen, but I can hope. I don't see a need for it anywhere else.
When anonymous people block your account, you can actually continue to post on their question unless they reveal themselves by going public. And they should know that, because when you go anon it actually reminds you that blocked users can comment on your question or answer.0
