Is it just me, or is America filled with racist pigs? I’ve been playing Halo 3 online since it came out, and there has not been one night where I didn’t hear a racial slur slung at me. And half the time it’s for no reason! I’m just sitting there, tea-bagging some guy after sticking a plasma grenade in his mouth, and I get called the “N-word”! That’s a little harsh, don’t you think?
I am not a black man, but I still get very offended when people say this. It’s not right, and it’s saddening that people are still subjected to this kind of juvenile behavior. What if I was a black man? How do you think I would feel? All I’m doing is playing a video game, trying to relieve a little stress from a hard day’s work. But instead of enjoying a little online gaming with my favorite non-Mario mascot, I’m greeted with a string of racial slurs that degrade me and my self-esteem.
I say this to you now, my dear readers: file a complaint against every single person you come into contact with that acts like this. There’s a system in place to punish these kinds of players, and we need to use it, in hopes of making Xbox Live a safer place for all of Zues’s creatures. I’ve reported every single player that I thought was rude and/or obscene, and I ask you to do the same.
If you don’t know how to file a complaint, here’s the link to the tutorial on Microsoft’s Support page. Change starts with you.
No one should go through something like this. It’s not right, and I want people to know it is not something that they should have to deal with. It’s the 21st century now, and we need to stop acting like this.
