Server Deep-rooted Racism and Toxicity

For one, we defined "nigger" not as something from the past. We said that words like that, in itself, cannot be racist. Racist is a concept and specific form of discrimination.

You are incorrect.

 

The word "nigger" was, and is, used solely as a racist derogatory term to dehumanize black people. Anybody who throws the word around so freely is simply ignorant.

So all the black people who use it are ignorant? If you deny that, you are indirectly agreeing that words require context, in which case it is not the word that is racist. And therefore proving your own point wrong.

 

As said on another topic, we will soon come with a statement to this.

No. It's re-appropriation. A group of people will sometimes take a pejorative word or phrase and use it in a controlled setting as an attempt to diminish the derogatory nature and meaning of the word. 

 

We're objecting to the use of words used clearly in a manner used to belittle or dehumanise another group or individual.
In the middle of an argument, "paki cunt" or "fucking nigger" are clearly demonstrating an unacceptable prejudice and bias against entire communities of people. Insulting a person is one thing, but the use of words in such a way is clearly and inherently racist. How about "fucking cunt" or "idiotic moron"?? Both clearly insults a person but doesn't require dragging in the history of an ethnic community, country or religion. Part of our community know exactly what they're saying and do it on purpose; Others just lack the appropriate understanding and therefore the empathy such subjects deserve, and this community is currently setting them up for failure in real life.

 

That said, I look forward to the statement from the community management. As expected this will bounce around a lot and we'll get a good outcome from you guys.

We'll make a topic about this matter today with things we'll enforce

We are not going to ping pong some discussion about word semantics and language. No words will be banned and I gave the reason for that. We will however be more strict on the usage, as Matthew said and as will be announced.

 

With that said, there is no need for further discussion as it is will soon be targetted in a way we deem appropriate. Locking this topic as we are not going to bring this whole SJW bullcrap here.
