Hello community,

today one of our clan members informed me, that an younger player of us insulted other players ingame. His racism word contains Jews and KZ. We identified this clan member and kicked him instantly.Please do not generalize his behaviour to the attidute of the clan Horai. The clan dissociate ourselfs from rasicm. -->Zero tolerance for racism!

If you get insulted by any of our clan members feel free to contact one of our stuff team.

Best regards

KettenG3sicht

Have you any idea how many people, people like you and me and your family, have been killed because of racism?

Millions. Many times the entire population of Portugal.

Quite honestly, I believe in total freedom of speech, which also means that people are completely free to make idiots of themselves too. Anything else is repression.

Well, he is allowed to say what he want - but not in this clan.
Well done, Kettengesicht.

+1 from me (are you listening moderators)

I would go further and say that I will happily put up with racist taunts and I have rather than have the freedom to speak inhibited in any way.

I am a man and able to ignore idiots I have no wish to have somebody else deciding what is fit for my ears.

I have suffered racism and it worries me less than censorship. Racism is detested by the majority and so by all means let it be seen and heard so that everyone may see how vile it is.

These are the sentiments of this ginger bogwog and I dare you to censor them.

I hate racism in this game, someone said to me when they set me on fire "Burn Ne*ro Burn!!" to which I kindly told him to fack off, he said what are you black, I said yes, even though i'm not and he laughed and resumed being racist. I think there should be a complaint option in game for racism so the person can be banned for life if they have been racist.

hate is usualy inversely proportional to I.Q.
so in the words of BA, "pity the fool"

Hear, hear !
And the other guy that agreed with you. We should start a party. Political one. With absolutely no political content whatsoever.
The party against being politically correct.

You being racist means you are ignorant. Me being offended by you being racist is equivalent to me taking offence that someone is literate. About quantum mechanics.

You being racist means you swallowed up ridiculous propaganda from your family, friends, local social circle, without even processing the information. Like a sponge that doesn't taste what it absorbs. Congrats.
Me being offended by you being racist is the same as taking offence that teenagers like this type of music or the other one.

Racism translates into blind hate. Hate without any other justification than "my dad always said  that ....". Which is dumb.
Hating blind hate is even dumber. Can you process the paradox ?

On the other hand, maybe you do hate yourself for whatever reasons. It's a free country. (Is it ? Where you live I mean.)

Racism in game will not get bricks thrown through your window or any other real act of violence, so why take it seriously?

The only reason people abhor in game racism so much is because they take it too serious.  Laugh about it and move on.  The troll will have to find so other retort.

& @ Pepol21 - if you was offended by the comment in your picture you should have replied: 'I can't suck because I am using a noob mod to show me where to hit your tank!' <sigh>

Thank you, +1
And people can add others on ignore as well.

I sometimes feel like this is going way too far - as a black person of color with african roots and origins myself, I was banned for an entire week when I answered the call of a fellow player in need of people to test things with by the tyrant bigbadvuk for the reason "death threats in TC/general chat/nationalistic based insults/racism" with the words:"let me in, nigga" (in the training room, that is)

I do believe that WG should really screen its staff better, because as pointed out in the moment of my ban by everyone else, this is just ridiculous.
The ban hasn't expired yet.

According to wikipedia:

Quote

Used by blacks, the term may indicate "solidarity or affection",[12] similar to the usage of the words dude, homeboy, and bro.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigga

Such power abuse is just sick and maddening and I hope justice will be done...
I mean, what the hell, that is a word we all say everyday and hear everyday...
