Indians were seen as subhuman, animals, vermin, to be extirpated so that white men could exploit the resources of the land. This ignoring the farms, towns, ritual spaces and even cities that these people had built.

    Adorable. You know very well what I was speaking to, but instead of a reasoned response you went for a limp zinger.

    Just name one then.
    This shouldn't be a mystery to you. Your feigned ignorance makes me sad.

    You're very bad at this.

    It's like you guys were raised by retarded weasels.

    As far as I can see you were speaking to the situation minorities found themselves in in the 1800s. Since you explicitly called out slavery.

    If you want to discuss how things are now, do so. But dog-whistling terrible shit that hasn't been in play for over 150 years? You can go fuck yourself.

    This shouldn't be a mystery to you. Your feigned ignorance makes me sad.
    It's neither. But instead of attributing to you what I suspect, I asked you what in that thread was so terrible that it calls out for a stoppage of discussion.

    You continue to fail to support your position. Is it because you have no real position? You have no staunch ethics?

    Scar expects you to read his mind.

    I am sure his significant other appreciates how he expects that from others as much as we do.
    I like hats.

    No he doesn't, he expects you to twist while he stalls and lacks.

    DING!

    I'm just willing to keep prodding (to an extent) so everyone else can see how weak his position is.

    Is that what you think that you're doing? This just gets funnier every time.

    Considering his "position" is trolling, it's looking pretty strong right now.

    Well, Morrus may have used a bit of hyperbole in describing the thread as an ďappalling displayĒ, four of the first five posts were pretty douchebaggy. Given his stance on diversity and inclusivity and the push heís made for that on ENW in recent months, Iím not really surprised that he came down a bit hard on those posts.

    I mean, Iím not exactly a rah rah diversity is everything type of guy, but I view it as a generally good goal and healthy for gaming. But I donít think itís really all that hard to spot the posts that would be considered a problem.

    Heh, you picked a fun thread to make your first post over here. Welcome aboard. We're pretty sure nail bunny isn't rabid and the rest are probably not contagious, but best to wash up after anyway.

    Try to guess who are the pedos. I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised.
