I know that there are rules and regulations that we have to follow on this site. Terms of agreement apply here. But does it really. I just looked at a debate between Bobthe2002 and Throwback. Now I am not saying that I personally was offended by the content and title of their debate. I was however taken by the fact that we can use these words here in our titles. I don't think its necessary unless you are taking an opposing stance on the subject at hand. And no it doesn't make sense to let these racial slurs fly off the handle here on this site randomly because it cheapens its value. Not that it is valuable to begin with.
I think racial slurs should be banned if it is used towards a group of people or a single person. So should racial slurs be banned on DDO. What do you believe.

And, just to extend my argument further: the *only* way we can prevent racial slurs on DDO is if we ban talking about race and become race-neutral. I.e, people literally have to stop attaching one type of race/ethnicity to themselves and others. No more identifying as 'Pacific Islander' or 'Native American', and no more criticising/discussing people who identify as 'Pacific Islander' or 'Native American'. If people do start to talk about race...they should be banned.

Comments please.

Y'know, it's somewhat interesting that people say that like everyone being unique somehow negates the uniqueness...

What about people who identify as non-dragon? Stop trying to cause racial tensions ;)

"You're unique, just like everyone else"

It seems like it's pointing out an oxymoron by highlighting its contradiction, but there is no contradiction.... though "something unique" definitionally means "possesses unique traits when compared with anything else," I don't think "uniqueness" is a trait "uniqueness" claims to uniquely possess.

I believe that we all should have a rational discussion about race here on this site. But I am aware of the fact that some of you cannot.

I do not believe that we can single handedly blame any group of people or ethnicty for the evil out here in the world. The elites have people of all races working for them in all parts of the world. So no I will not follow the anti semite crowd ever. Please do not allow yourself to be part of the ignorance in which is DOO. Stop saying bad things about the Jews.
I know that you are better than that EmilRose.

Comments please.

And no we cannot become race neutral here because people take pride in their identity.
So they will use those terms to describe their ethnicity, race, color, or creed.

Everyone is pretty much the same when you really stop to think about it.

I never hear people on the right bringing up race but only having to defend being accused of being racist. The left owns the race card lock stock and barrel. There is not one subject on the entire planet that the left hasn't attempted to inject race into and if there is one they will.

That's because you don't have any ears. The Right is constantly making racist comments, and using racial overtones when they are on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News, especially. This is why they are always being exposed for their bigotry and comments like that guy in the NFL. The Texans owner.....yeah.

Um two things. First thing it is "your opinion" that anything that is said by anyone has racial overtones. Anything can be extrapolated to racist. Example: "The inmates running the asylum". This expression has been around for ever and means exactly what it means. The subordinates have taken over management. Second we are talking about DDO not network commentary shows.
