Hi guy's, I am just wondering what is racist?, I mean I here a lot of poker players call bad Russian poker players ''filthy Russian'', ok I understand it is poker related and is used to justify bad plays, but can you consider this racist?
I mean me personally I am not racist, but I do have a bit of humor most Canadians do, and I don't think calling someone lets say a filthy Romanian is racist at all, I guess some people are more sensitive then others, I mean people make fun of me calling me a filthy Canadian , I just laugh think its funny, but some people I guess are just baby's and can dish it out but cant take it when dished back ......Just a rant

rac·ism

Noun

1.The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, esp. so as to distinguish it as...
2.Prejudice or discrimination directed against someone of a different race based on such a belief.


I know that a lot of poker players in this forum are upset about Russian players, but most of them are new to online poker and are just playing the way a lot of North American and European players were playing ten years ago. Personally I have met quite a few people here in Canada who are from Romania and Russia, and I have nothing bad to say about any of them.

I personnaly get tired of the russian BINGO players as i call em aswell , but that doesnt give anyone the right to call em filthy as we dont know the state of theire personal hygiene. Each person is a individual and shouldnt be held accountable for the actions of others.

Agree
