Side A: if you write the word "eyelid" in your documentation I am going to scream racism and compare your gaming community to the KKK
Side B: I should be allowed to eat babies and come up with homonyms for hate speech in this game.

No one's said anything like this. Not even that guy with 1 post who was saying dwarves in Armageddon have similarities to Asians stereotypes IRL.

Listen, would you just stop?  You're spamming up this thread with something completely off topic that originated from an entirely different thread.

Gotcha, silenced. Resume talking about fantasy racial slurs, my opinion doesn't matter as someone who has been a recipient of them IRL. I bow to you, Ninja.

You're more than welcome to make your own thread, where you can virtue signal all you want.

I've refrained from speaking about racism on this forum because honestly it has no place in the game. I am an Australian Aboriginal, my grandfather was part of the Stolen Generation, which to you Americans, basically, my grandfather was forcibly removed from his childhood hood home because his skin was  light enough color that he was considered human. That man was forced at age 16 to continue my bloodline and dilute the aboriginal blood.

I have not once on this forum complained about any kind of racism in game because I am not some sensitive child who gets hurt just because they hear something remotely offensive.

The racism in Armageddon MUD is not in any way a reflection of real life racism, anyone who says that it is, is looking for racism and is themself being racist.

White men can be racist.
Black men can be racist.
Hispanic men can be racist.
Asian men can be racist.

Calm the fuck down and look at the game for what it is, a game in which we ACTIVELY play downtrodden people for fun. We actively put our characters in a shitty world for the fun of it. Does it hurt the feelings of a few extremely sensitive people? Sure, I suppose it could. But that does not in any way mean that the game is racist in a realistic sense.

Elves are not black people, that thought never even occured to me.
Dwarves are not asians progressing as hard as they can, never occured to me.

I can't go and live the lifestyle I want to live, because my skin is too white. That there is racism. Not calling an elf a longnecked person. They are often 8 feet tall, their necks are bloody longer.

I'll stop you at Hispanics and blacks can be racist.

Racism is a systematic oppression, on a broad scale to shove a certain type of people down.

Hispanics and blacks can absolutely be pregadist, however racism is not something they can be. Racism still happens today, and people would rather we "shut up" about it and act like it never happens like the past 400 years.

This is patently false.  What is this word "pregadist" anyway?  I searched and searched and only got some hits that maybe the word you're looking for is "prejudiced".  But guess what? Racism is a form of prejudice.

Racism =/= systematic oppression.  Rather,  systematic oppression is a symptom of racism. Whether or not you are racist isn't determined by who happens to be on top, at the moment.

Everyone on the planet is a human being and imperfect. We can all be subject to bias. When you assert that it's impossible for one demographic to be racist - that's racist.

This has become a much different argument. Can y'all make a non Armageddon thread about it? I just want to read about my IG racism issues and not debates about whether or not anyone regardless of skin color can be racist.  I'm getting all of this in the real news, this is escapism from our terrible real world.

Yeah, this clearly ran it's course. Locked.

Han / Uighur is a good example of both sides being non-white. 

[sarcasm] Of course, as Han is the most populous ethnic group in the world, they must be the oppressors in all their relationships, even in the U.S., right? [/sarcasm]

Striking that through (but leaving it, because I'm not about to hide what I've said) because someone educated me a bit more on the issue.  Han/Uighur isn't primarily driven, as I thought, by Han chauvinism (sorry for using a Mao term!), but rather by religion, which is something I was trying to avoid in my example of a group that can be racist themselves in one country (and on a non-white/non-white basis), yet the victims of racism (Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, US, etc.), on both a historic basis as well as a renewal around Covid-19.
