    You seem not to be playing for long time, since there is a real galore of names in WoW that
    perfectly fit your description, it is as ppl try to make char names most retarded as possible,
    and they are pretty successful.

    Geeze man, just because someone named their toon "Cracker", I wouldn't be all pissed off about it. I wouldn't even get aggravated about one named "Dumbwhiteperson". As long as the person wasn't running around screaming "Eff white people!" all of the time, it's whatever.

    Passive racism is still racism. Not trying to get at you, but I'm just adding my opinion to the discussion. Besides, I'm pretty sure "cracker" has a more mainstream usage as a food. I rarely hear the term used when it doesn't describe a food. "Negrow" or "Negro" has no used meaning other than as a racist term.

    Alright, yeah, that's a bit bad. I'm not jewish or anything, but that's still not good. That's a little different because it is based on a historical event where people died, lots of people. I see that as something totally different than someone using a name like Negrow or Cracker or something along those lines.

    Just because I don't like stupid nicknames doesn't mean I haven't played WoW for a long time. Your point fails, thus you fail.

    That's fine, I'm actually neutral on the topic. I didn't even know what worgen was spelled backwards (didn't ever think about it!) until I saw this posted on this forum somewhere:

    Since when did negro become racist? negro is the name of their kin. Its nigger that is racist.
    its the same as calling a penis for cock. Penis is the real word, cock is the "bad" word.
    Would it be ok to call my char african? african american? eskimo? zulu? indian?

    Well, it's just like everything else in the world, it starts out as something else and morphs into something ugly. Negro is actually the root of the word black, and I believe that some languages still call the color black "negro". And back in the day, people called black folks negros, then called them black, then now we have went to the politcally correct "African American", though a lot of people still say "Black".

    Just like the word "Gay". Used to mean "Happy" back in the day up till I think about probably the 60's or 70's, then it turned into meaning homosexual. And then after it was used as a term for homosexuals, it turned into a "diss" for someone that you didn't like or thought was stupid. I really hate it when people use the word "gay" like that. Whenever someone says something like "That game is gay", I say "I was not aware that a game could have a sexual orientation" and it pisses one of my friends off every time I do that. But it pisses me off when he uses the word in that way!

    In the english language, yes. I wonder if it'd be okay to name your character Negrow on a spanish server

    Re: Will Negrow get banned?

    Ok what is "nick" and why do I keep seeing it used in place of pick in this thread? Is that a euro thing? If I help all these people that want to use negrow as a name nick new names will that make me a "nicker"? ;D

    Anyhow as most will learn anyone can be offended by anything... Why even go there?

    You know, I have noticed that a lot of times now that you bring it up, seems like white people are touchy about this. I know a black guy in game that used to be in the guild that I used to be in, I will have to ask him about this.

    If there are any black people here and I have offended you with this topic, I apologize. It wasn't meant to turn into a big war or anything, was just something that I brought up just to be bringing up in the wee hours or the morning.

    I should have remembered that it's hard to have a real conversation here without someone getting all pissed off over something and wigging out!

    You make a very good point now that I think about it. When you mentioned the whole "Holocaust" name thing, I was also guilty of doing it. I don't think that's funny at all, but I am not Jewish and do not have anyone in my whole family tree that is Jewish. Though referring to a tragedy where loads and loads of innocent people died and talking about some stupid slang term are on a bit different levels!
