This game is full of "/b/-tards" and wannabes.

If you are black, or Jewish, or homosexual, you will hear terms that rightfully may be offensive to you.

Then you'll get some idiot defender who has abosolutely no sense of history try to justify it all ....

Its sad that this is where our electronic-youth-culture has chosen to go, but there it is.

Unfortunately, the only real options are to either (a) get over it or (b) move along. Crying or Very sad

Oh yeah, I forgot: There is also a video out there from a CCP event of a CCP employee saying something, admittedly jokingly, but totally spur-of-the-moment akin to "White is the smartest race". I don't have a link but if you search around hard enough, you can likely find it.

The fact remains, many non-americans dont see it as racism. And why should we, ever listened to rap lately? (Outlaw rap btw).

Honestly I think alot of people really need to HTFU..

an odd word said once or twice and not aimed at you, HTFU



Black people can't HTFU.

It's like trying to make Infinity + 1.

If he called you a racial slur that may be one thing. But if it was used as a joking matter....

racism is fun for everyone. for every time he says something racist about blacks, say something racist about whites. keep doing this until you are satisfied and realized that it never meant anything all along...

BECAUSE THEYRE JUST WORDS.

People are going to hate eachother over any little thing. Skin color is just one of many.

Actually a bit strange how all the other reasons to hate people are openly accepted.

Heres a suggestion for you...since your so bothered by this (you have a right to be), the next time you fleet up with this guy and the business gets hot and heavy in a fight, why dont the rest of you unfleet and leave him to his fate...with the phrase "The ******s are leaving". Im sure you'll get the pleasure of harvesting salty tears from the a$$hat when he gets his $$$$$$$$ ISK ship popped from under him and starts crying about it. Especially if you record it with TS and post it here! Maybe he'll get the point...maybe not. <shrugs>

I'm not sure you read the thread Cambarus, there is a huge difference between some foul language and being a racist. If you are offended by people cursing yeah you need to toughen up but there is little excuse for being racist in modern society. I just ignore the people or tell them to stop talking about politics/useless stuff.

You're absolutely right, there is a HUGE difference between being a racist and using foul language. If someone is denied service in a store because of their race, or they get beat up because of it or something else along those lines, then I agree, it's 100% wrong and speaking out against crap like that is to be expected.
HOWEVER, what the OP describes IS foul language. The idea that in a game, where just about anyone can come along and rob you of months, maybe even years, of time and effort, that it is a big deal if someone says a word you don't like it's somehow a big deal is ridiculous.

Get over it. If you don't like the guy, don't fly with him. It's that easy. HTFU or fly with people as soft as you are.

I'm roaming with the alliance and one player starts calling another the "N" word over the voice server. It wasn't directed at me and I was told to get over it. I stated that I didn't think it was necessary to use that word and the offender went off on a racist rant. Most of which I missed but I did hear "raisin head" (never heard that one before).
As a "black gamer" or African American it kinda bothered me. Here I am enjoying a game after working with some new "friends" and bam! The "N" word (seems silly now).
I'm not gonna quit because of it. I guess I wanted to know how common place is this type of conversation? I also don't plan of filing a petition. Eve is my 2nd MMO and so my experience is limited.



You should only be as as offended as when Nas or Samuel Jackson says it IMHO. They say it to me all the time.

Been there many times (and worse, much worse lol), it' doesn't bother me actually, because I know the little zit faced punks who casually spew it wouldn't have the balls to use it outside of there mother's basement where they are cloaked in the anonymity of the internet. And they sure as hell wouldn't use it in my face, so blegh to hell with it.

But if you're in a group that condones it and you can't stand for it, leave, then blow them up repeatedly, killmails cure all ills :) .

I have a red beard, and people keep telling me I have no soul.Sad

Regardless, there's too many /b/tards and/or ED leftovers in Eve. I personally don't mind a clever joke or two, even if it's on the expense of a religion or skin colour. I do, however, find the excessive usage of words like ******, jew, and ***got to be ridiculous, and it's incredibly tiring after a while.

It's pretty common in online gaming unfortunately. WoW is much, much, much worse than EVE in regards to people using racial slurs. When I used to play WoW, I would pug a lot of raids and most of the time I'd get on people's vent and it would be non-stop...it's usually a bunch of kids trying to be "kewl" and be as offensive as humanly possible b/c there's no one there to punch them in the face.

If it was directed at you, in a racist way, then you would have all right to be offended. But if he just said it, in a joking manner, and not even directed at you, it's the same as if he were to say "mother****er" or "***got". It has no racist implications, it's just a bad word. I won't even get into the whole "double standards" thing that it's ok for a black person to say it, but anyone else it's suddenly the worst word in existence. No offense, and I'm not accusing you of it, it just ****es me off.

In all seriousness one of the reasons I don't care for voice in MMOs or PSN or whatever is it's just a lot of insults and cussing and racial stuff and burping and farting. Text I can ignore but the annoying squirelly voice of a shut-in going on about teabagging and pwnage just makes my ears bleed.

You, sir, need to join a better corp then. Yea, my vent is full of people insulting each other sometimes, but at least it's funny, and they don't talk about teabagging and pwning and that other cancer of the internet stuff.

edit: Well, at least PSN is better than Xbox Live.

How do you know both people involved aren't black and using it as a term of endearment?

Don't forget, on the internet no one knows you're a dog.

..."burping and farting"..."teabagging and pwnage"..."insults and cussing"...you gotta get in a better corp M8 or stop playing with 12 year olds. Shocked

I'm generalizing a bit. But a corp I was in my my earlier days was like that. I've since started my own and weeded out the preschoolers.
