I don't know why you think that black people are genetically predisposed to be offended by that word.


While you may not get offended by it, I've seen plenty who have and I'm not saying blacks genetically predisposed to be offended by the N word. The N word is generally used is an offensive way.

This is a big part of how the word came into recent use. It's subversive in the sense that it's claiming language that whites cannot use, and just another way of reciprocating the boundaries set up against blacks.

Of course enough generations pass and that intent is lost. But there's still too many of the older generation around for that to fly in public spaces.


In many places whites can't use the N word without causing some sort of scene and this is from my experience from traveling and where I live. Blacks themselves are creating the boundary between whites cannot say N word while they can without any issues, have you heard some of the Rap songs the black artist put out?

When did black people started labeling the N word as Racist? I find it normal to say just like the word "buddy" or "pal" etc. o.O
I also don't find it odd that someone of different color says it to me. Dunno.


Come on now, It's always been ok for black people to use the N word like you are claiming withing the black community, If a white person say N word no matter how it's used black people will be offended. I've seen it many many times and I recall on  one morning TV show where one of the host is black and the rest of the host are white and they where talking about the N word being used in music etc. The black host said the N word and everything was fine untill the one of the white host said it in a non offending way and the black host got their feelings all hurt by it. Becuase a white person said it and that if a white person says it's automactily racist and reffering back to days of slavery etc.

Really? It's a forum you discuss things irrespective!



It's a game. Whos' getting uptight?


Yes, guild wars guru forums are well knowing for qq threads and this one takes it to a new level. Anyone who thinks this is an issue in the first place is clearly uptight since they are letting something so trivial ruin their game play. The mobs disappear on their own after few short minutes if no one's kills them when someone just grabs the gifts and run. If you come up to a present and the mob is still there it means more drops for you, so in the end its their loss and our gain. Really this is a non issue and not worth discussing in the first place as someone will always do something you may not like so just ignore it and move on, this topic is no exception.

With this thread Guru has sunk to a new low, who cares if someone just runs off with the gifts and leaves the mobs there. Are you going to tell each and every person in a restaurant to chew with their mouth closed or tell a teenager to stop smacking their gum on the bus/subway the list goes on. The point just shrug it off and move one and don't get uptight about something like this and people are going to do what they want reagdless if its on the internet or in real life.
