Well I'm not saying that and we weren't alone in our struggles either we have always had support.

Probably to the point where they would be defending me more then I would be defending myself. 

Finding good people is always a great thing. But when you come across opposition or hate don't let it change what you do or get you down, if you do they win. 

"In the immediate future, we have this one, and then we’ve got another one that is actually going to be – so we’re going to have, what we want to do, is in January, what we’re targeting to do, this may or may not happen, so you can’t hold me to it. But what we’re targeting to do, is have a fun anniversary to the Ilum shenanigans that happened. An alien race might invade, and they might crash into Ilum and there might be some new activities that happen on the planet." ~Gabe Amatangelo

You can look up hundreds of videos of raging men, boys, and kids, who the first thing they scream at the top of their lungs that who ever is a n****r, or some other racial slur.    And it isnt just blacks, its asians, hispanics, or anyone who isnt "white".    Its almost like the internet is becoming a haven for the hate groups that couldnt find a leg to stand on in the real world.     I have heard less racial slurs while talking with pro KKK activist.

 

This is another issue that is sitting in the background that needs to stop.

The racism bothers me a lot, primarily because it's simply uncalled for. It is almost always someone trying to rile up someone else and there's no need for that at all. There are plenty of far more creative and far less insensitive ways to cause trouble than shouting racial slurs.

There's also the other side of the coin as well, which is the prolific use of the N word by black players combined with the double standard of who is allowed to use it. Now, to put this in context, I'm talking about games with voice chat and the use of it as a neutral term.

 

I just posted something about that a few seconds after you did lol. I too hate racism and sexism, in 2013 we shouldnt tolerate or have this, i agree. Our children is what we shoud worry about and not teach them our hates and fears. Or things will never get better.

Its sad you can not treat a women with respect.......... that could be your mother or sister being treated like that. I wouldnt stand for it. Now having a new child (daughter) jesus i think i am more protective now than ever, just knowing what kind of people are out there :( it sadens me.

Two wrongs don't make a right, but it damn sure works. 

 

As a black gamer myself, I first ran into this in C.O.D.. It was amazing the amount of times you would hear slurs throughout a game play session. The problem was it just didn't seem like there was anything I could say that carried the same weight to the offender. 

 

A few years later I stater playing SC2 with a friend of a friend, also black. Maaan this dude is one of the funniest people I ever had the pleasure to speak with. What he would do, almost form the momnet we entered a match, he would begin this venomous string of foul racial slurs, "You F$$$ N### should go #$$#@!"

 

I mean this dude would come up with stuff that would make David Duke proud. The thing is he was saying these things to white people. The shocked responses  they gave were astounding. "I'm not a N!!!" "WTF uou calling me a N for," and so on. I mean they would get soooo pissed. 

 

So OP if you run into it again, try what my friend does. You'll be surprised. 

Elder Scrolls Online vs Wildstar Mass PvP you decide.

Yes in gangster rap, which I don't like.

But not all rap. You don't get chuck D going around calling women bitches and hos.

You could say the sake with Caribbean music, there's some vile homophobia in some dancehall stuff. But that doesn't mean people like bob marley or toots don't have a positive message.

Yes you are correct and some metal music also does this, sorry for the generalization. Wasnt my intention, just as a referrence.

Dude, I feel for you, man. It's almost as if you get points for being insanely racist and offensive there.

Racism I am not surprised and it's an unfortunate fact in both society and the nerd-world. Look at the history of the United Statues itself or any other 'western' culture and one bell rings true.

The degration and mistreatment of minorities. Now let's take a look at the game industry itself:

 

How many minorities are in CEO positions in gaming?

How many minorities are designing the games (Clothing, Style, attributes)

How many minorities are writing the script for said games?

When has a video-game ever starred a minority character without them being the fool(Saints Row 3), a gangster(GTA, Walking Dead), the side-kick, a pimp, or a just pure sex object to shake butt or have sex with(Citra in Far Cry 3)?

When was the last-video-game released that had a minority as the lead character of the story that isn't a criminal?

 

Literally almost none. This will only began to change if there are more minorities recruited in real-life in IT programs and colleges and in gaming career.  There still exist a superiority complex and it shows a lot in the gaming comunnities themselves. 

I would not be surprise if hate-groups and their sympathisers are in the gaming communities as this is posted to this date. It is not done only to African Americans. It is done to others (asians) as well too the discrimination.

I think it mainly shocked me online, because in real life bar a couple of incidents with some mouth breathing lowlifes and some over enthusiastic policing, and a few suspicious look from old people I've not really had that much to complain about in real life. Your racist dickhead groups over here tend to have it in for Asians first and foremost.

Does anyone even know where the N word came from and its true meaning? because if you did the N word would not bug you. Uneducated racism is the worst. Ill explain it to you if you need to know, its not as bad as you think. Just makes the enire racism thing look silly.
