It’s Not Racist, it’s Trolling! Ignore them!

If you ignore them, they will go away.  And racism won’t affect you! That’s what I was basically told when I reported a 45 minute tirade where I was forced to play a game with racists who kept up a wall of abuse after I spoke out against their racism. Not the genteel racism of …

Would you play a game where the protagonist was a Nazi?

It’s a rather “puzzling” surprise to many readers that I do play games. While poking around someone asked me a question. Why can’t you play a game as a Nazi? Why can’t you play a WW2 game where you play as the “baddies”. I thought about it and I do have a genuine answer as …

Open Mouth, Insert Foot

Last week, Megyn Kelly of Fox News decided to inform us that Black Jesus or Santa Claus was not a real thing. Never mind the fact that as a Middle Eastern Jew, Jesus would have been considerably swarthier than what Megyn thinks “white” is. St. Nicholas being from Lycia may not have been as white …

Who Gives a Fuck about Ducks?

I had to have this explained to me. Duck Dynasty is a show about a bunch of rural Americans who got famous by producing and branding a specific brand of duck call that is either very effective or just generally liked. This has turned them into serious stars. To put it into perspective, Duck Dynasty …

#NotYourAsianSidekick

I participated in the “not your asian sidekick twitter hashtag” but then realised there is a small problem with it. It’s a good thing, don’t get me wrong. It dealt with American Asian issues and by which I mean the definition of asian varies. In the USA it’s Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, Vietnamese and maybe (I …

I Get Mail – Moar Hate

The Trifecta is Reached! Fuck you you nigger faggot! I bet you cry like a bitch because your skin is not white. Can’t be white so you want to be a jap! The Trifecta and a casual insult at the Japanese. I assume it’s because I was using a champion in League of Legends inspired …

I Get Mail – It’s Your Fault

I knew this would happen before I wrote about racism and gaming. It’s clear that gamers take criticism poorly. It’s also clear that there are a large number of people who don’t think racism is a problem or something to be opposed. There are also a sufficient amount of people who simply like shouting Gay/Nigger/Jew …

Hags of Lag – Racism, Riot and the Gaming Community

Racism1

These are one of the least viewed threads. I know because a lot of atheists don’t play games. I do. But one of the problems in “games” is pretending to be white. You pretend to be white, male and straight online. Because Pacman help you if they find out. A woman? You are fat, ugly …

Teaching While Black

If you haven’t read it yet, I urge you to do so. I am sure no one there was racist, they just did racist things because they didn’t know what was an what wasn’t an appropriate thing to do. TLDR? The author charts how responding to racial insensitivity got her brought before a panel to …

News – Terror Attack In the UK

This is something Pat Condell didn’t really cover. I know I am flogging the dead horse but really? There are still people who follow him and do so with a huge amount of respect for his “truthiness”. He’s a staunch warrior against the Islamification of Britain, never mind that most atheists in the UK kind …
