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

I am ginger in RL (yep, its true) and I have engaged in sexual relations with many women of many types, had many years of drunken nights, had fights which I usually won, took recreational drugs and engaged in a full and fun life, surfing, mountain biking and climbing until I was 32, I didnt play my first MMO until I was 36, four years ago, I am now married with children (thus proving that I have in fact had even more sex). So, I have managed to be ginger and yet manage to not be a virgin and/or live in my mums basement eating cheetohs or whatever you fat dudes eat.

Abusing ginger folks is not acceptable, unless they are fat. Or possibly ugly. Or possibly american.

GO TROLLS GO!


Lies, your a short 16 year old fat kid who smells like cheese and never even touched a boobie but your own.

Seems to be an Issue and one that seems to get locked down by CCP very quickly.

If a person plays a game , there is an attachment formed (rational or not). And for anyone that feels left out or marginalized they don't want to feel that way in a game they spend money on.

The Politically Correct would say "But in space who cares what color you are" For that I say I can can answer that the person playing (and raising the concern) would most like a representation of themselves in the game as close to accurate as comfortable, in this case a black character that is not limited to one bloodline, I mean are there no blacks in France, or England, or Asia, or the rest of Europe , or in America? So why not diversify them in this forward vision of human exploration and expansion , along the same progression that exists today.

Now the racially concerned would say that the game is minimizing blacks having them only in ONE blood line, making them the least intelligent (baseline wise) of all the races. To them I would say it sure seems that way, but this is a game created by people who may have limited and very distinct opinions , and their creation took on those viewpoints during it's initial creation and release.

The question that should be asked is not If there is a problem, but why is there a concern still after nearly a decade. Maybe with the new system people were hoping for more diversity and got shafted, all the talk about skin tones being expanded was not as expansive as expected. Point is from the outside and from the new player on the global scene it looks bad, almost exclusionary to relocate a non existent people (based on Real-life comparatives) to being less intelligent and having inferior tech in comparison to the other space faring denizens in the game. Becoming out raged over someone pointing that out is ridiculous. Quitting because it exists, is foolish. Discussions need to be made and a simple solution would be add the same set of facial structure and skin tone selections to ALL the Bloodlines.


IMHO:
I would like to see a dark skinned racially mixed featured Achura or Gallente or Caldari maybe some Mulatto Amarr.

I just came by to tell everyone left here that all humans are homo sapiens and therefore have the same gene pool. Except other living specimen of the genus Homo you can find out there! If Blackys and Whiteys could not procreate or get any fertil offspring because of genetical barriers pre - or postnatal for e.g. different chromosome quantity or structure, then we would not be the same race but Species: Look at mules. Since this isnt the case at least as i heard, the use of the word ethnic group could be more appropriate and understandable blame your language but understand the difference!

The only race thing that matters in Eve is what race you are in game, the rest just doesn't have any relevance at all.

If you want to bring RL race issues into game then you have some serious problems...

I know of two black guys playing EvE. I had an awesome time flying with them, and one of them was a really awesome FC at that too.

They are US based, Los Angeles if I recall correctly.

Race (classification of humans)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

: . . . the idea of race is often used [5] in a naive[6] or simplistic way. Among humans, race has no taxonomic significance; all people belong to the same hominid subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens.[7][8] Scientists consider biological essentialism obsolete,[10] and generally discourage racial explanations for collective differentiation in both physical and behavioral traits.[6][11]. . .

But who cares what the scientists say! I went to State War Academy.

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.

QFT, +1

But the last part - "equality works both ways"? I don't see it. Would have been nice, but no... When white people form a white only club/community, that's racism. When black people form a black only club/community, it's described as brotherly love and spiritual! A white man calls a black man "ni**er", that's considered a very serious racial insult. A black man calls another black man "ni**er", that's like "hey, how you doing?".

You gotta love the direction in which the world is going Lol

I dont understand why a skin tone is relevant to playing a computer game,. surely russians stick together, chinese, french etc but that is mostly A language based, or culturaly based corp or alliance.

Looking for someone based on their skin colour just doesnt make sense, are "black" people around the world all the same , do they all have similar racial and cultural undertones,

..and before any trolling starts jews have had mass genocide enacted upon them, gypsies face worldwide disdain, all of europe has been invaded, britain has been constantly invaded and oppressed, american indians are virtually wiped out, australian aboriginies the same...among many others not cited here...just seems only one type of people shout "racism" every time they dont agree with whats happening.
