See kids, THIS is how you try to start a separate discussion. Good attempt, but looks like people saw it coming.

Acting like stuff like this is A-OK is cool, but /pol/ is that way.

It's strange.

Its much simpler than that: some countries are whiter than others, thus carrying varying levels of ignorance about such matters. He's from one of those countries

Well, I don't know what it takes to get banned from YouTube, but if half of the content creators have been making Nazi jokes and using the n-word like that, then sure, I think there should be action taken against all of them by the platform holders.

I don't really see anything boring about this. It is important to call out people who do or say despicable things, online or otherwise. He is not a rando posting on neogaf or a griefer playing overwatch. PewDiePie, as I am sure you are aware, has an influence on tens of thousands or more young people and him saying this shit sends a message that using that word is normal and acceptable when playing video games.

"Outrage culture" poses a significant less threat than the normalization of white supremacy.

Maybe this was an accident, a slip (but of course, it's indicative of a lot). But with his reach and the reach of his other YT defenders, there's a lot of work toward normalizing behavior that should not be normal. I don't mean this in a tinfoil hat sense like it's a coordinated campaign, but rather all the "well, it's not a big deal, gamers gonna game, gamers gonna shit talk! and also they donate to charity!" that spread from YT to Twitter to everywhere is part of a much larger web.

It is a big deal.

Why are people offended by a word that was used as a means of oppression for hundreds of years? Maybe if you exert a smidgen sociohistorical awareness you might get to the bottom of this mystery.

Tbh I don't think a knee-jerk reaction like what Felix had because he was in the moment doesn't constitutes his account being closed. Get invested in a game, say some stupid shit when your filter isn't a priority. He'll most likely just apologize about it and move on.

"PC outrage".

Sure, let's not discuss that one of the most recognizable figures related to gaming, with a audience that heavily includes children, feels comfortable using racial epithets as insults .

Word.

The moment might be small. The word might be relatively short. But the depth and breadth of one's belief needs to be large for something like this to "just come out."
