Forums - General Discussion - Popular Twitch speedrunner banned for "leaking" the N-Word

The majority of people in this thread have never seen Pulp Fiction or listened to rap music from Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, or Wu Tang Clan. Nor do they understand how language works. A word can be extremely powerful and offensive and it can mean something entirely different depending on context. The N-word is very offensive in many cases, but not offensive at all in others. Anyone denying this is more concerned with being morally superior than actually contributing against racism.

"Anyone denying this is more concerned with being morally superior than actually contributing against racism."

but that's what many of the progressive crowd are aren't they? a bunch of people more concerned with social points they are mining from showing off their virtue than actually living out their values and obviously that leads to inconsistency which leads to insanity because nothing being said is grounded in anything practical

its how you get communists on computers accessing the internet to preach about how capitalism needs to end and all private property must be abolished... I can think of at least 3 separate inconsistencies there but it is what it is

I've been using the word my whole life and I will continue to do so in private conversations. I know the definition of racism and I know I am not a racist. Words mean nothing without context.

And the fact that some words are not allowed to be spoken even outside of their context is inherently wrong. It's despicable and narrow minded.

May be the first time i've seen that "I'm not a racist" not be immediately followed by "I have a black friend".

"It's despicable and narrow minded." - How ironic...

Weird response, no actual points were made. Its like you just wanted to show you disagree and you're morally superior but no substance.

Just to mix it up I say, "I have black friends but I'm incredibly racist."

The point is that the definition of racism or any -isms for that matter is a true believe in the inferiority of a race, gender or whatever and the intent of disparaging said race, gender or whatever.

That means it is absolutely impossible to be "accidentally racist". I don't believe a race is inferior and I don't intent to disparage them, therefore I am not racist no matter how often I use "naughty words". I may be an asshole by deliberately offending some people but I'm certainly not racist. And if it is truly a mistake then I'm not even an asshole. Then again, i would only be called an asshole by people who desperately want to be offended so it doesn't really matter either way. I'm just a poor schmuck who lives in a society that doesn't know how to spell "intent" or "context" and would rather witch hunt people to death before doing a tiny bit of self reflection.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

In my experience, most people who use that word when playing video games use it because they are looking for the most offensive and repugnant word to use in order to vent their frustration, not because they are racist.

If you were decent woke person, the n-word wouldn't be in your vocabulary. Just even thinking of using that word means you're a white nationalist.

I can't tell if you're being sincere or facetious.
