You have to realize this is a game, not real life and that that word no longer holds the same meaning as it did back then, this is the internet, this is a video game. not the newspaper or the TV. and btw i'm black.


using the N-word is an auto-punish.

If i vote punish and riot chooses to ban them, yay me. If not, whatever.

Go get a black friend. Say the n-word. See if they care.


This.

They usually don't.
Most of the black people I know use the term themselves.
I got one saying: "Ofcourse I don't find this offensive? I AM one right?"

I just dont see that words place in this game, I know he was fooling around but, just a no-no even with it not meaning what it did way beyond our time.

hmm i wonder if this will get filtered...

Here in Aus ****er isn't an often used word (obviously), but i hear in US that African Americans only take issue if Caucasian/white people are using the word ****er and between themselves it's not an issue.

I'm honestly not trolling but isn't having words that only black people can use racist ?
Treat is the same as any other foul language, if it's used in jest and they stop when asked then they were probably just joking around.

what b8et said..
If the person is spamming chat and trashing his teammates in all of the 10-12 games it doesn't matter what he says because that's annoying and deserves a ban.

It's basically just a normal insult at this point that has lost it's original meaning like ****** or gay.

Actually they do, in many circumstances.

do YOU know any black people?


Yes, all my black friends are from the 50's and hold vengeance when they hear the n-word.

As am I. I live in the past. Who wants to move on in life? That's stupid.

The f word referring to homosexuals also does this for me.
