    Also Blizzard are not going to fire them because they are temp contractors not under Blizzard employment. They do not work for Blizzard they are just writing some stories for them. (at least I don't think they are on a monthly payroll)



    lol you're cute.
    I'll take that over being a *** racist like yourself lmao.

    I honestly can't tell what is worse; the fact these people exist and continue to be hired, or the fact other people are actually defending their views as if there's nothing wrong with them. This whole situation is disgusting.

    Definition of racism
    1: a belief that race is a fundamental determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.


    Nothing about that says white people. Anyone can be racist. End of story.
    I love how you cut out the important bit

    racism
    /ˈreɪsɪz(ə)m/
    noun
    prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership of a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized.

    Defending them definitely. Keeps racism and divide alive which breeds more of these people. If people stopped defending it it would eventually die out except in some fringe groups.

    Typically != Always.
    For example, if I said, "It's typically sunny here," that does not mean that it is always sunny and never rains.
    This.. this isn't difficult, sweetie. Use that frontal cortex. You can do it. I believe in you.

    I think you need to learn the definition of "typically".

    You ain't wrong in thinking what they said is wrong. I personally wouldn't say what they said. If they are guilty of anything (as I mentioned before) is being overly aggressive. But the whole race debate regarding this whole thing is silly, because without context its hard to point any fingers.

    Lovely, another reason to keep ignoring content not in the game.
    Though honestly if they're capable and don't let their politics seep too deeply into the story it should be fine.

    Besides keep in mind Blizzard likes China and China does not like American social liberals, so they can't mess up too badly or they suffer the media-version of the headman's axe over there.

    You know what typically means? It just says it happens more against minorities and marginalized. Not that they are the only ones that are able to be victims of racism.
    Your line added nothing to refute him.

    could be sexist, but I think the title is wrong since only one of them would be racist, the others would not.
    I think because of the policies of the forum.

    That wasnt the point in me adding that line, I added that bit because the previous guy cut it off, not because he was wrong. Otherwis eI would just just left the highlighted ion.

    being bigoted towards people because of their race or gender is still racism or sexism.

    he didn't leave it out, he got the definition from somewhere that felt no need to add an irrelevant and unimportant phrase to a definition to make it seem like white people are the only ones that can be racist. whites aren't even the majority of the world either, neither is white a race, its a skin color common among several races that were from the region of europe and surrounding areas.

    Gotta second this dude, haven't really followed the exchange but racism is literally (negative) discrimination based on race.
    Treating someone as less because he's "white" is no less racist than doing so because he's "black".

    (though honestly neither color has much to do with any race - there are many races that might be called white or black, and some of them can even be both)
