Last Friday evening at the 2018 WSOP Event #66 $1,500 NLH, something said by a poker player to another fellow player led to his disqualification from the WSOP event.
Adrian Sorin Lovin, a poker pro who registered from Russia but at the WSOP he wore blue shirts emblazoned with ‘Team Italy', had advanced to Day 2 in Event #66 with a fairly healthy stack. At that time, the initial field of 1,3[...] Read more » Racist Poker Pro thrown out of WSOP Event

I do not know if this professional player pronounced this word because one thing i know for sure. Adrian Sorin Lovin is a Romanian name and my compatriots they have no problems with african people or black people. Only when we are offended by these persons we answer normal or with insult. In my country many Romanians hate other people like gypsies or muslims but black people without a reason not. We love nig..rs because millions of Romanians are fans of black actors and musicians. In my country there are no racism cases with black people.

The use of words out of their cultural context is a mighty challenge for the whole world society. Calicul’s post is true testament of this. Calicul is apparently quite content to make reference to the use of the word, however by many it is seen as a derogatory term...... yet by others it is an oft used term of some sort of endearment. The challenges of diversity! You can’t please all of the people all of the time!

Damosk, The European Union must defend itself against "immigration taking control in Europe. That's what Donald Trump says, and he's very right. Because of this Romanians do not want many Muslims in our country. Many of them are savages, rapists, aggressors, criminals or terrorists. Another problem is Gypsies and many Romanians hate them because they made Romania shameless throughout Europe and not only here. Gypsies with Romanian citizenship are compared to the true Romanians and that's not good for us. If the Gypsies were doing England, as they did with Romania then you would have agreed with me.

If it is offensive, shouldnt be for every single one? When black people refer to each other, or other races, with this specific word it is ok, but when others doing it, then are being racist? Never got that part right, really...

Every Land and country have good people and Bad people.The big problems in the world are Religion and i mean all religions not only the Muslims. The other Problem are the big compnays. Why so many black people come to Europe.The big companys destroy there Land to make money. When they not will go,people come with weapons and then they must go. A few of the companys are Nestlé,Bayer,Shell and so on. I know people from many countrys and the most are good people,For me is equal from what country a person is.The only was count for me is the respect.When you respect me i respect you,its very simple Thats the Problem with many Moslems they say only our god is good.And we have the wisdom.They dont accept other living. But i know to Moslems there are not fanatics and they are good people.But the christ and the many jewish people are fanatics too. And the Gypsies are Calicul say have good people too.The Problem with The Gypsies from romaian here in germany,Are not The people.Thats the Mafia.I dont think a little girl with maybe 15/16 years like it here to stay on the Street and make sex for money.So you must destroy The Mafia in romaina and the Gypsies give a Chance for good living and working. I live in the near from Berlin and in Berlin a lot of Gypsies from Romania.Sure many criminals but that is how i say a Mafia Problem.But i have See a lot from then they are very friendly and dont stealing,and make hard work for little money,they only searching for a better life. Money is more worth as a human live in this world.When we not end this never will change.

I know. Many gypsies are good in all Europe but in my country, many Gypsies are lazy and they like to live of social benefits, to steal in Romania or on all continents not only in Europe, to beg or all kinds of crimes ( prostitution, drugs and other crime offenses ). For this reason i hate them and many romanians same. They are compared with real romanians and that's not good for us.

Eventually, we'll all be one race so then there will be no more arguing over these false divisions. It's happening faster and faster, whether anyone alive likes it or not. I see it every day walking around my city and talking to my own kids. Being mixed-race is not a concern to the millenial generation in the west, so perhaps the loudmouthed older folks should recognize that their opinions are on the way out.

Well there are times when one lets out all of one, maybe not only because of the game but because of some other problem outside this one but in fact it is already done, I think sometimes it happens to all of us but that it comes from someone we know next is news
