Will CCP stand up to their own rules and force a name change from this Alliance? As an African American I find this name to be reprehensible and CCP needs to act quickly before the race train comes down on them.

The petition system is really the proper place to send such concerns to CCP. Im sure if multiple people find offense at this name and petition it, CCP will do something.

Also a quick corp search uncovered that around 50 corps that contain some version of "black legion".

Not relevant, just pointing out that the OP is a tool.

Dear Mum,

The informant called me at oh-nine-hunderd hours.
We met, and talked business...
Serious business..
But we've got a slight problem.

There's a million angry citizens looking down their tubes..at me.

HAHA well they had Ethnic Relations which stated

Quote:
Skill at operating multiracial corporations. Extra 20% corporation members of other race than CEO allowed per skill level. Percentage is based on CEO's corporation management skills, not the number of people in the corporation.


It was changed in Inferno to the current Diplomatic Relations skill.

Close to the mark. Here's some help. CCP also known as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Perhaps I should be offended as well with how their abbreviations are similar.

You were so offended by that that you joined a Corp named "Knights of the Burning Lobster" which has an astonishing analogy to the name "Knights of the Burning cross", the european spin-off from the Ku-Klux-Klan.

Harm set, harm get.

Very, very bad troll!
