racism is discrimination along the lines of race, who was he discriminating against?

if a white person buys rap and repeats the n word along with the artist is that racism?

That's why context is important.

which is why i asked you to point out where he was discriminating against black people?

He straight up called someone a nigger and brought it up on his screen.

It's really not that difficult to understand.



                            

Turns out he's also transphobic, with a community full of trash.

Can't say Twitch will miss him. Shame they can't go through and purge his viewers too.

he said "sup nigger" to his white friend who responded to him in a friendly manor(in a private conversation no less)

so... he didn't discriminate against a black person... so how was this racist?

if twitch purged everyone who ever said "tranny" and doesn't buy into the proposition that a man can become a woman and vice versa then they'd probably be left with 10 people

He openly used racist language on a platform that prohibits racist language. He openly used racist language in his work environment, which prohibits racist language. He openly used racist language knowing that people watching his content could be extremely offended by his words and actions.

He was dumb enough to leak it.

He's apologized for using racist language and admitted he was in the wrong.

It's racist.

What exactly is your argument here?

"He openly used racist language knowing that people watching his content could be extremely offended by his words and actions."

by opening a chat window for a second to chat with someone? here's a question why doesn't the capture show him typing the word in?

"He's apologized for using racist language and admitted he was in the wrong."

i thought context was important? didn't you just say that?

"It's racist."

he didn't discriminate against a black person... so how was this racist?

Jampa: The Story of Racism in Tibet

DOWNLOAD THE REPORT »

For a Tibetan to raise charges of racism in China today can lead to detention and imprisonment. It is no coincidence that there is not a single NGO in China today that openly speaks of the extensive racism against non-Chinese peoples. Such advocacy could easily run afoul of China’s policies prohibiting anything that incites national division or undermines national unity. China still maintains the myth that racism is mainly a Western phenomenon and there have been numerous official pronouncements that racism does not exist in China. It is also shocking that these same official pronouncements often talk in terms of “civilizing” China’s minorities. Just last month, Hu Jintao, China’s vice president and possible successor to Jiang Zemin, visited Tibet and gave a speech on China’s civilizing mission which would “turn from darkness to light, from backwardness to progress, from poverty to affluence.” In this statement and in scores of official policies and regulations, there is an open attitude of superiority and paternalism, which is sometimes officially recognized as “Han chauvinism” but which masks a reality that exists in countries all over the world: racism.

One of the greatest results of China’s participation in the 2001 United Nations World Conference Against Racism (WCAR) would simply be the acknowledgement that racism is a serious and significant problem in Tibet and China. As Yang Lien-sheng wrote, racism should be “spelled out in order to be dispelled.”

What is needed in China is a mass educational initiative to dispel widespread notions of Han Chinese superiority and minority inferiority. While it is official government policy that all peoples in China are equal and discrimination is prohibited, what is occurring in China today is massive denial of tragic proportions. China’s laws and policies are in dire need of revision to remove the pervasive paternalism and inferences of superiority that lead to thousands of acts of discrimination day in and day out."

people from that region definitely aren't a good example to use with regards to not being racist and the fool who wrote that article obviously isn't aware of that
