Offensive Ps Screen Name?


Recommended Posts

Any form of racism seriously offends me and pisses me of as I was born just before the end of apatheid in South Africa and grew up around loads of racism. I mean its just not cool.But personally imho i dont think that this is a big deal. If his name was something more like, "KillTheKikes" or "HeilHitler777", then I would probably be pissed off. But Kike, not really cause it really does just sound like a nickname, sorta like "Kaka" the Brazilian football player or "Cafu" etc.
for some one who grew up in apartheid you would think they would spell it right. lol i keed i keed

Lighten up, Francis..... thoughts like those of the OP are why we are all doomed to a lowest-common-denominator, Socialist, PC, punishing-the-successful-so-as-not-to-offend-the-losers future. GG all that once made Western Civilization great. I tell you, it's f-ing ponderous, man.

...I've three friends, one of which is black. One of the guys calls the black guy N-word (like wassup my N--) and stuff, but he does it in a totally non-offensive and affectionate way. The other guy doesn't mind at all as he is not offended by the term. I have another friend, who doesn't say the N-word much and practically never in public. One time, my black friend tripped him or jabbed him or summin, and the guy falls and goes "Ah shit, you fuking N--". IMO, the second case is waaaaaaay worse than the first case...
THIS is a rational way of thinking about the issue, IMO.

I'm not familiar with the term Kike, but how offensive is it? Is it in the same boat as the N word? I'm generally not a PC person, but I still don't use the N word (white FWIW, and I have black friends who don't rly care about the use of the word, but for some reason I still don't say it)
I would agree that using it all the time is better than only using them in secret/with friends.For example, I've three friends, one of which is black. One of the guys calls the black guy N-word (like wassup my N--) and stuff, but he does it in a totally non-offensive and affectionate way. The other guy doesn't mind at all as he is not offended by the term. I have another friend, who doesn't say the N-word much and practically never in public. One time, my black friend tripped him or jabbed him or summin, and the guy falls and goes "Ah shit, you fuking N--". IMO, the second case is waaaaaaay worse than the first case.I also think there's a case where a lot of people use it of ignorance as opposed to hatred. Ignorance is bad, but at least it is not quite hatred.
lol, aren't Irish people cute?Seriously though... I am jealous of people that are generally ignorant of ignorance. Jam-Fly, can you find me a job good enough to support a wife and a dozen or so dogs? Obviously, I'll need a few acres in the countryside. I have a BA in History and 8 years of military intel experience. I'm totally serious, FYI.

I'm not offended by much of anything, but I think it's pretty comical that PokerStars doesn't censor because it's a hispanic nickname. Well, my Danish nickname happens to be Jiggaboo Gookbeaner.. if only that had fit when I registerred my Stars account.
Well done!

Wheezer16:Your Stars contact is apparently ignorant of the word "kike."In your next e-mail, have them Google it and they should land on the first result:Kike - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaIn modern English language, the word kike (IPA: /ˈkаɪk/) is a negative, term referring, often offensively, to a Jew.
