I think it is worth it. Stand up for your rights as an American. I think it's pretty funny how white people get blamed for racism all the time when there's all kinds of racist things black people say, and don't get in trouble for.

White people aren't liked anymore. If you don't treat black people better than white people it's racism. I don't know whatever happened to equal right but now white people need it.

As much as I agree with you, If a white guy stands up and says he is being treated unfairly because of his race, he himself will be branded a racist. It's crap but I've seen it too many times. It doesn't matter if the black person started it or what he said because apparently the law doesn't want to get involved. If you label a black person a racist, someone like Rev. Al Sharpton will just rush to the scene in hopes of getting some TV time, spouting out words of racism and hate and he'll be branded a "defender of justice" for it. The government thinks it better not to get involved because it will most likely cause black population to riot. Remember the Los Angeles Riots of 1992? Wo's is too say they won't do it again?

Exactly, and it's ridiculous. Who says white people can't have a civil rights movement. It might happen depending on what Obama does if he's president.

i found that hilarious and absurd man. I hate that I can't put anything Christian in my motto or bio but other people can but Satan and 666 and Devil in theirs. So I just file a complaint on everyone that has something like that in their gamertag. If God offends some people, doesn't Satan offend some people (hopefully a lot more). I'd def call and give MS a piece of my mind, even though it won't do any good. Or at least send an email.

I agree with the above guys too. blacks always scream racism when they are offended by anything, but at the cost of the white person. our society has changed from white>black to black>white, why can't they just make it black=white and be happy. It's just a skin color, and no one should feel different because of it. Blacks have a BET, whites don't have a WET. Blacks have NAACP, but we don't have NAAWP. affirmative action forces employers to hire a colored person with the same credentials as a white person because he is black. The race issue should have been solved in the days of Washington and Jefferson, but unfortunately it's still not solved in the Bush and most likely Obama eras.

I doubt Obama will win after saying Oprah's going to be his vice president that was just sad. I hope McCain wins or jeez i'd rather Hilary win. I'll be voting for Mccain for president.

OK, you all should really chill-out and stop with the black people this black people that, when white people weren't the ones enslaved for many many years (and still suffer extreme racism whether you wanna acknowledge it or not)..so please get over the non-sense!! Can we please leave these topics for the Fox News Channel and keep our gaming world free of the ridiculous politics of the world? This thread should be closed!!

Well you guys are not black, and don't understand what it's like to be harassed by people because of your skin color, our world is totally different from yours, most white people have no validation for hate toward black people, yet they do it anyway.

Its kind of weird when people that don't know you stereotype you before they even get to know you.

Take me for example I'm black but I'm not GaNgSta and I dress some what middle class casual, I speak very proper to people and im willing to help anyone that helps me.

When I go out to store or what ever you should see how many "white ladies" start grabbing their purses like im going to steal it or something or the looks I get from some people when I walk in small stores.

I basically get grouped in with the black people that do stupid s**t on tv and the media just pounds it in to peoples head that all blacks steal and what not.

Now im not saying that's raciest, im not even saying I got a problem with that because honestly I don't care, its just that I wish all people would stop stereotyping people before you even get to know them. Not all black's are bad, not all whites are crazy and im sure not all Mexicans like taco's I mean hell I don't know.

I don't know that it is necessarily fair to say that most white people hate black people. That's exactly the same stereotyping that you're complaining about. To affect change in the world you have to start with yourself. I know what it is like to be judged simply by the color of my skin and I'm not black. Racism affects everyone.

as the late Martin Luthur King Jr. once said, "The Black Heritage is not one of choice, but one just like the white bretheren are born unto. What that individual does in their life will affect the world more than the color of their skin"

Racism is pretty bad in America still, but i think a lot of different races are paranoid about it and think EVERYTHING is racist nowadays : /

I don't know what to say in response to half the posts in this thread.

I'm too busy shaking my head in disgust at the blatant lack of intelligence put forth by many. Like saying that you hate Obama because he joked about making Oprah his Vice President? So you hate Obama because he has a sense of humor?

Besides, this topic was about Microsoft's automatic censoring tools equiped on Live. Certain words are considered racist and "Coon" is a rasist slang. It is however also a legitimate place, so if you simply contact Microsoft, they can fix the block preventing you from putting your hometown in your profile. Not that big a deal.

I guarantee it's because of the Coon part. Not that it makes it any less silly to take it that far, but that's just how it is.nosferatu

I'm not racist by any means and im not saying ALL whites hate blacks its just that i see so much hate towards us but for what, I mean the white man did bring us over here to work fields and what not, and when i get on xbox all i hear sometimes is go back to Africa or N word this N word that, I mean aren't we the ones suppose to be hating you?

Most black people I hang around don't even mention white people yet when we go in to a HALO lobby all we hear mostly is white people talking about blacks or they will start when they hear us, and for what reason I don't know, do you guys think we just sit around and crack white people jokes all day well we don't.

on xbl i only here black men call each other the n word. i never heard a white man on xbl call a black man the n word

LOL oooooooooooooooook.

Well you guys are not black, and don't understand what it's like to be harassed by people because of your skin color, our world is totally different from yours, most white people have no validation for hate toward black people, yet they do it anyway.

Its kind of weird when people that don't know you stereotype you before they even get to know you.

Take me for example I'm black but I'm not GaNgSta, I dress some what middle class casual, I speak very proper to people and im willing to help anyone that helps me.

When I go out to store or what ever you should see how many "white ladies" start grabbing their purses like im going to steal it or something or the looks I get from some people when I walk in small stores.

I basically get grouped in with the black people that do stupid s**t on tv and the media just pounds it in to peoples head that all blacks steal and what not.

Now im not saying that's raciest, im not even saying I got a problem with that because honestly I don't care, its just that I wish all people would stop stereotyping people before you even get to know them. Not all black's are bad, not all whites are crazy and im sure not all Mexicans like taco's I mean hell I don't know.

This is one of the most thoughtful, intelligent, and understanding statements that I have ever read on the topic of race. I can't believe I read it in a video game forum. Amen!

This is the society we live in...Crazy, isnt it?

This is a world where Barack Obama can run for President and be taken seriously.

I don't know that it is necessarily fair to say that most white people hate black people. That's exactly the same stereotyping that you're complaining about. To affect change in the world you have to start with yourself. I know what it is like to be judged simply by the color of my skin and I'm not black. Racism affects everyone.

I don't think your XBL problem is from hate so much as obnoxiousness. If something distinguishes you from the crowd people just jump on it because they think it's funny. I'm not saying it's right, I'm just saying well...it's the internet.

People on this thread are extremely uninformed. Also, they focus there attention on only the facts that make their argument valid.

I wonder where the people beofore me got their facts about Obama. Most likely fox news. If you think fox news is a legitimate news stations than you are horribly ignorant and need to look for the true deninition of an unbiased news report. I live in canada and Im pretty sure i have a more informed opinion on the presidential candidates than most americans.

I do believe afirmative action is wrong though. It's anti-racism, but it's still a form of racism. Now instead of black people getting looked over because of their skin colour, now it's white people. We deserve equal treatment just as much as the next guy and affirmative action is just another form of racial discrimination.

I hope Obama wins. America needs to open their eyes and see that their civil liberties and constitutional rights and getting destroyed slowely but surely by the republicans. If you want your country to stay a democracy then you need a democrat in office.

I don't really like any of the candidates for the upcoming election. I definitely have no reason to hate one over the other.

Obama wont be protecting your rights if he does happen to get prechosen for president. Get ready to lose more rights, and get ready to say goodbye to your guns if you have them. Same goes for Hitlery though, shes every bit as bad, if not worse. Actually all 3 pretty much equal prolonged war (a new war with Iran) and loss of liberty. Thats just me though, I feel that all 3 are the most laughably FAKE candidates I have seen in a long while. However America just seems to eat it up, programming FTW!
