Yes, that is what I meant.
Mmm.. seen worse. Got a friend who's Asian & yes he can be an ignorant dick
sometimes. Sounds like that guy you were working with is capable of going stupid
the same way my mate does I think it's because he feels like a failure as he
isn't loaded or driving a BMW. Success is about 'Bling' to some of those that
came from nothing. It affects all races though. I suspect it's more prevalent for people
working away from the land of their ancestors. My friend hated being a
cook because there are loads of Chinese cooks.. ? Yet he'll inherit the
have a comfortable life. I told him to grow up & be happy that he's got a
job with a future. Which is more than some have.
No easy answer but don't beat yourself up about it.. that guy probably/hopefully
feels bad too. It is funny really you can probably get away with saying
'Go blow your mom' but can't call him a stupid example of his race in shorthand.
lol political correctness at its best.
PS- My friend also seems to have an innate sense of right & wrong that supersedes
any of his experiences.. which is imho amazing.
The only thing I'm racist against is people in general. They're *******s.
This is the reason he's posting this thread:
Still a brave and nice move for him to apologize.
That is actually pretty disgusting man. It's good that you are apologizing but if that is truly how you feel then you need to go out and meet some more Asian people. I've travelled extensively in Asia and just like any other part of the world you will find some absolutely amazing people there. Kind, generous, humble and willing to share what little they have with visitors. That's more than I can say for a lot of Westerners.
Usually Asian people are the hardest working people out there...well at least the younger ones. Depends on their parents. Lazy parents, lazy kids.
uggg man, just uggg. what a freaking racist.
I have no words. Well apart from these 4. OMG now it's, I don't know. Should I have typed four instead of 4. If I was counting the words what the hell does OMG count as? One, none or three. I'm confused and being confused was how I started this post. Confused. Post count +1
Actually, after the discussion i had with you a few months ago about "what is considered skills in a FPS game" and the statements you made in that. It had crossed my mind that you could be a bigot; from the fact that you would not accept another point of view on things you already "made up your mind" about, even if you were proven wrong again and again.
But as for racist... i guess it could be hard for some people to not make racist sounding remarks at a time of anger toward a person that is from another ethical group.
Luckily for you, neither bigotry or racism is 'incurable'. I hope you can do something constructive with knowing this now.
In order to get rid of racism, you should meet those of that race. It's really only ignorance that holds you back. I'm hoping for you, hatred in the heart is a horrific thing. Hell, even mild bias.
I see the OP has two distinct thought processes
* I don't like Asians
* I'm sorry for my statement,I don't wish to offend, and I know it's wrong
Most everyone is focusing on the first statement, and I'd like to acknowledge the second.
We can't help what we naturally like and dislike.I think the majority of prejudice I see in this forum is hate for Americans by our European posters.Particularly our friends in England.
Can you have hate in your heart, and judge maleficarus for his?
I'll take the second statement, and pat him on the back for recognizing that he needs to change, manning up and apologizing.It takes more guts to stand before a jury, than to be on the jury.
Agreed. "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." We should be trying to help him out instead of incriminating him.
You can't really label an entire race of people off one experience or a few individuals. I know nice whites, ahole white, nice asians, ahole asians, nice blacks, ahole blacks, etc. Your bound to run into the good and the bad of every race some point. I work with people from at least half a dozen nations: UK, Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Turkey, China, Italy, and most of these people are great. Sure they have their moments, we all do, but hey, c'est la vie.
I disagree, to me your comments were racist, and you should consider the possibility that you are also a racist. Have you ever heard anyone who was not a member of a racist group admit to being a racist? People do not want to admit even to themselves that they are bigots and racist. You are halfway there. Take the next step and accept to the racism. Like, how many alcoholics are in denial before they admit to having a problem. We as people should never condemn an entire race of people based on the actions of a SINGLE person. Take yourself for example, do ALL the Canadian you know work as hard as you do? No Canadian you know has ever broken the law.
When you judge an entire race based upon what you see one individual do......
Admitting you have a problem is the first step.
I do not think of myself as a racist or a bigot.
Last December I PMed you to remove a racial slur against this same race from one of your post and at that time you blamed it on to much drink and acting like an ass...
Using your position or standing at a place of business to get a person fired because you dislike their race is racism.
No offence but anyone can come into a forum and appologize. It's lame. It's a facless expression of guilt. Asking for the thread to be deleted is weak aswell.
I also hate when people use the "I am Canadian and we aren't suppose to act like that..." excuse to make their remarks seem less offensive. I am Canadaian and I know that there are alot of racist bigots in this country. I also know that just because you appologize for being one on a forum doesn't nullify the fact that you are one.
Be what you want, say what you want but for the love of all things good atleast have the gumption to stand by it.
Appologize for hurting people sure. Appologize for who you are? Why? I doubt anyone here thinks you aren't just appologizing to keep from get kicked off the forum anyway as those comments weren't just "passing by" remarks anyway.
Good luck from one bigot to another.
PS. My wife is asian and you're a real piece of work.
hahaha "racism" this word is a war everywhere you find it meh play some mw2 sit down, relax, and then, reconsider what you have said, im pretty sure you will apologize even more about this thread
Well said =)
