Racism on Xbox Live.
Microsoft has never acknowledged the sad truth about the racism problem that seems to be getting worse on Xbox Live everyday. Many mainstream gamers who have no concept of what on-line gaming even is are quite unaffected when it comes to this. Therefore many companies will decide to sweep it under the rug only because the percentage of people affected by it are on the small side. This should not matter in the least.
I have been a member of Xbox Live for about a year and a half now and have had a great time, but occasionally there is that time I end up playing with an idiot who fells anything goes, just because I can’t see them acting like a buffoon. The first time this occurred was well over a year ago. I ignored it, figuring that I had just been unfortunate to have experienced it. That was the first time, remember. Months went by before it occurred again. Figuring this was going to be a thing I had to come across very infrequently I shrugged it off again. Don’t get me wrong here. I have experienced countless acts of racism during my life so far. I take these things very seriously, but this was on the small scale.
Lately I have been privied to these racist pigs allot more frequently than I hope for. Microsoft has a complaint system built into Xbox Live but it doesn’t seem to be doing any good. Why doesn’t Microsoft acknowledge this problem? It obviously is a growing issue for them. I have read many message board threads all over the web with the same complaints I am voicing here. I have played with many people from different corners of the world, many from the United Kingdom. Lately I have been playing allot of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter on Xbox Live where racist seem to be rampant everywhere. It must stop.
