tats wrong yo
or maybe their people that dont like racism lol, i dont see why anyone would have to include racism or a racist comment in anything they say on a gaming forum.
I'm actually lolling at all those "politcally correct people" as we call them in belgium.
When we were little we used to pray in shool for "the little niggers in africa". We grew up with this word and theres even some kid-songs featuring the N word...
When we got in high shool we couldn't call black people niggers anymore cause suddenly it had become disrespectful... allthough there were like 3 black people in my shool and everytime you would run past them you would hear them use the N word in every sentence they used... So it's ok for black people to call eachother a nigger but when white people do it it's not? Ye there's the things that happened in the past, but I bet most of them doesn't even knows or cares... just being dramatic. I really don't get how people get offended by that... maybe it's because I'm not black?!
Nowadays theres even people saying we cannot call them black anymore but we should call them "differently coloured people", now tell me how Is calling them different being less "racist" than calling them black? Seriously
Next to that, calling a turk a turk or a jew a jew isn't racist at all edit: In belgium.
On the other hand if you call sombody a "dirty jew" or a "stealing turk" it is racist, but seems like a lot of people don't see the difference.
Heck, even if someone would call me a "stealing dirty cracker" I wouldn't get offended at all cause I know it's not true and the past is the past.

Context my friend. Besides, the word "Nigger" has always been a derogatory term coining from the word "Negro" so it's not like you could use that word in a different context and still not offend people, unless you were black. But it's like that with everyone, arabs, turks, fat people and shit, use these terms to refer to themselves and friends a-like, but when used in context against them they would deem it very offensive. It's like calling a hispanic person a spic, the word isn't just a shortened version, like "Turk" instead of "Turkish" or "Jew" instead of "Jewish", it's an offensive term about the race.
Untill 10-20 years ago nobody cared in Belgium, even the black people were fine with being called a N. But then those politcally correct people came up and suddenly they didn't want to be called it anymore. That's why I find all of this so amusing where I live, they were fine with it untill some white guys told them they shouldn't be fine with it.... But well, from your post I see this is not the case at all where you live, so I should better shush it I don't mean to offend any1.
May I remind you that you "americans" recently published a book named "let's kill all the belgians, a child's guide to genocide" by danny wind. Most people would get offended by it, but us belgians who read the book actually think it's quite funny Besides again those narrow minded politcally correct people I like to nag about -.-. Imagine the reactions if he would have written this book about another nationality/race... I'm even scared to put it here lol...
Lovely topic btw
