Sure there are, but it is not like something that gets asked or talked, where you are from or what race you are unless something really makes you stand out like your accent. Most don't care one way or the other. But I did use to know a few people whom claimed to be black. Though never really saw any proof, just took their word for it.

I would recommend the Black Muslim Bakery... but it seems they got shut down some time ago. A shame really... they made good pies.

Why, do you care?
I certainly don't
You could be any race, or sexuality or have any hair colour (except ginger) and I honestly couldn't care less I suspect most of the eve community feels exactly the same way, (except the gingers)

Finally ANOTHER person of color..! (For the trolls)

We are out there.. Although I don't go looking for more of us. Doesn't matter in a Corp and benefits it less. A lot of different language barriers and even more with the incoming Asian population.

If you're being genuine with your OP. The answer is not to stress it.. You'll more than likely be called the N word at some point. Twice for me in my short EvE career. Once by now muted Ally member on TS over some dumb dispute about contracts.. LoL.

Second: Not actually directed at me but Spam in local chat

Gotta love the Jita spam! Two days ago in fact and the GM contacts me with EVE mail like I was the culprit..

But I really don't have time for other people's kids.. They fail

Don't take this the wrong way, but what would you say to a corp that was exclusively for white people, and advertised as such?
That corp would be called racists, bigots and probably get banned by CCP, (i certainly wouldn't join such a corp)

Just saying, equality works both ways.

What does it really matter? It's a computer game. White, Black, Brown... We're all human beings, we all are here to enjoy playing the game and making friends in the process of it, who the hell cares about someones skin colour!? Your unlikely to even ever see most of the people who play EVE Online, they could be a highly intelligent cat on the other end of the keyboard for all I care.

Oh and we used a little officer mods. KIDDING! We used a lot of officers mods, A LOT! Because we don’t :censored: around in low-sec.

All hail your new monacle wearing cat overlords Big smile

Skin color, age. sex, religion really don't play any part of Eve for me (Apart from the ginger hair part of course)
Its your actions ingame that define you to others in my humble opinion.
