    fucking racist sons of bitches, not the creator of tiny tina, but those people who are so soulless and narrow minded that they can find something "racist" in harmless stuff.

    Another reason why we cannot have great comedians like Alf Garnett, and i am sure the is a black equivalent.

    People are so touchy today..

    Its why shows like "All in the Family" are not shown anymore. Loved that show. To many Meatheads in the world today.

    People bitch and moan about everything. Comic books would make our youth lose touch with reality. Television is dumbing our youth. Movies are amoral.

    I guess videogames are nearly an art form. Every single one has the mass of idiotic detraction attempting to relegate it to obscurity just before the masses recognize what it can be.


    Stupid comments aside, this is a good thing. Once games are elevated to an art form they are above contempt by the likes of Jack Thompson. It doesn't change the actual content of the games, but it gives them a layer of cultural bullet-proofing. I personally think the idea is backwards, but it plays out in real life.

    I commend the idiots who see racism and violence in games, and point it out. They are inadvertently helping gaming. Such a sweet, sweet irony.

    Yeah watch a fair few with the wife but still thought it was milder.. Although it's all about humor if ya have it watch it if you don't erm don't.

    One part of that made me think of a Till Death Us To Part was were he would not drink out the glass the black guy drank from the glass. Till Death Us to part you can find a clip here and there were Alf was at a blood bank and he was wondering why this black guy was there implying isn't their blood different.

    Both points how blind they both being..

    Shame a lot of the British show is not around any more as the BBC had it banned long time ago as it actually started out as a black and white show.

    In the end both shows crack me up..

    And there was In Sickness And Health

    Because many black people are less educated unfortunately and instead of working harder to come back in society and raise their future level they prefer to sit on their ass and act like whiny bitches.

    Same principle with jews who still think that everyone need to support and understand them ecause of what happened to their grand parents back in WW2. You are there because white, black, yellow and red gave their lives to save your grandparents so dont act like WE owe you something. Your life you owe it to US.

    Same thing with white people often dumbass or redneck who complain that immigrants steal their jobs but dont want to go out and make low paid jobs even if they dont even have a high school diploma.

    I'm speaking the truth and i'm native american so my people lived the racism of white people and now the paranoia of other ethnicities. We are tired of your racist shit so shut the fuck up and try to live in peace ! :nutkick:

    Don't care if it is professionalism or not. He wasn't fired he quit because he wasn't legally allowed to represent the company in this light. Making racist comments about Tiny Tina is pretty telling of what he thinks of skin color and education.

    Wow, that's the most racist thing I've read on TPU. Perhaps you could just not come back.

    Writing off entire races is completely stupid, I dont care what race or ethnicity you are.

    Just because your a minority doesn't mean you can judge. Just because people have wronged you(or your people) doesn't make you the judge.

    I was comparing dumbass people who still use the past to paranoid on racism. In no place in my post i wrote that everyone is the same i was only comparing dumbass from one ethnicity to another. It was on second degree application but it seems that some here are not used to analyze before talking. :)

    Every race/ethnicity has their own problems, but it's no reason to put the burden of guilt onto others because of what happened to them in the past. I think that's what Krazy Owl was really trying to get across.

    Anyway, Tiny Tina shouldn't get removed just because of the way her dialogue/jokes come across. I'm as white as anyone in in my country, but I grew up in the ghetto surrounded by black and hispanic people. I grew up talking their slang and everytyhing, it's just the way things were. It doesn't make me any more racist if I say n**** to one of my black friends versus them saying hey whiteboy to me. I take it in stride and don't care much because I know it's not meant to be an insult, nor mine to him. Everybody should just take a chill pill and remember how it used to be back in the good ole days when noone gave a shit about being politically correct. Sad to see how much times have changed.

    With all that being said, if they plan on patching BL2 in order to get rid of Tiny Tina, I will never update. I will log into Steam and pause my download every single time before playing. I won't have this nonsense.

    Krazy Owl, My wife all so Native American but this or what your on about has nothing to do with it.. Although how ironic is that as i am British just some people take it heart a little to harshly.

    Intelligent people call racism too working or not it don't matter.


    What don't kill us makes us stronger and a few jokes here and their god help ya if ya cannot handle it.

    I haven't touched the game, but I think it's just ridiculous nonsense!

    I'm white (Irish /English/Hungarian) and my wife is spanish, so my daughter is half white/half spanish. I have black friends, my best friend is half black, and we can all voice our opinions and jokes equally. It's silly IMO.

    The people who think that this is a problem must not have any multicultural friends or family at all and need to broaden their horizons! :roll:
