I feel it helps that I can back up my argument.
Thanks for that. I definitely don't agree with taking that tack. I'd never use that word myself.
Playing devil's advocate, however, arguing that you should be able to use the word... maybe stretches the definition of "racism". I think we've become so
sensitive that we begin to diminish actual
racism. And the author of that take on things even ends up undercutting their own argument, in that the guy is a British immigrant, and doesn't quite the grasp of history like (some of) our populace has. I think the farthest you could probably take it is that he's incredibly insensitive, which very well seems to be the case.
Cue someone telling me that I'm racist in 3... 2... 1...
EDIT: Dear Lord, we're off-topic. And I'm not looking to create any sort of firestorm with the above, for goodness
sake. From what I see, the dude is as crass as they come.
So... Sony didn't put the kibosh on the used games thing at their event. This is unsurprising. And maybe even a little worrisome. You usually hold bad news back for later. Good news, like continued used games sales, should probably have been covered. So the rumor still has legs for now.
