Two wrongs don't make a right, but it damn sure works.
As a black gamer myself, I first ran into this in C.O.D.. It was amazing the amount of times you would hear slurs throughout a game play session. The problem was it just didn't seem like there was anything I could say that carried the same weight to the offender.
A few years later I stater playing SC2 with a friend of a friend, also black. Maaan this dude is one of the funniest people I ever had the pleasure to speak with. What he would do, almost form the momnet we entered a match, he would begin this venomous string of foul racial slurs, "You F$$$ N### should go #$$#@!"
I mean this dude would come up with stuff that would make David Duke proud. The thing is he was saying these things to white people. The shocked responses they gave were astounding. "I'm not a N!!!" "WTF uou calling me a N for," and so on. I mean they would get soooo pissed.
So OP if you run into it again, try what my friend does. You'll be surprised.

Originally posted by ShakyMo Onomas Yes in gangster rap, which I don't like. But not all rap. You don't get chuck D going around calling women bitches and hos. You could say the sake with Caribbean music, there's some vile homophobia in some dancehall stuff. But that doesn't mean people like bob marley or toots don't have a positive message.
Yes you are correct and some metal music also does this, sorry for the generalization. Wasnt my intention, just as a referrence.

Dude, I feel for you, man. It's almost as if you get points for being insanely racist and offensive there.
There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre
Racism I am not surprised and it's an unfortunate fact in both society and the nerd-world. Look at the history of the United Statues itself or any other 'western' culture and one bell rings true.
The degration and mistreatment of minorities. Now let's take a look at the game industry itself:
How many minorities are in CEO positions in gaming?
How many minorities are designing the games (Clothing, Style, attributes)
How many minorities are writing the script for said games?
When has a video-game ever starred a minority character without them being the fool(Saints Row 3), a gangster(GTA, Walking Dead), the side-kick, a pimp, or a just pure sex object to shake butt or have sex with(Citra in Far Cry 3)?
When was the last-video-game released that had a minority as the lead character of the story that isn't a criminal?
Literally almost none. This will only began to change if there are more minorities recruited in real-life in IT programs and colleges and in gaming career. There still exist a superiority complex and it shows a lot in the gaming comunnities themselves.
I would not be surprise if hate-groups and their sympathisers are in the gaming communities as this is posted to this date. It is not done only to African Americans. It is done to others (asians) as well too the discrimination.
