I know there are a load of REAL sensitive people out there so don't get your knickers in a knot on this one.

The reference to Gypsies in another thread caused a commotion and was seen as racist. Roulette is a game that is played across racial lines but are the contributions on forums as balanced as the wheel number/colour layout?

President Trump called countries in Africa sh#tholes. I thought this was rather funny as it rings true with perceptions of the dark continent. An African American preacher, pastor Manning claims that European people are builders and African people are consumers who do not have the capacity to build or constructively contribute to anything. A very strange man, Pastor Manning. Does this hold any truth on roulette forums? Are there any non-European AP specialists or system designers/creators among us? I could place a bet on scammers from Nigeria who may have a deceased uncle who won millions on roulette and now want to deposit the funds in your account...lol.

Of course there are great players, system designers and AP players from all over the world and all continents.
What question is this?

A psychological question.

Remove it if it goes against the grain of the forum.

I do realise that it is a sensitive subject but it shouldn't be. Like you say Kav, contributions come from across the board so I can't see why it would be offensive unless presumptions become fact through discussion.
Curiosity; that's all.

I wouldn't take my cues from closed minded people because it makes us think weird things (GIGO).  So far there has been no complaint about any gypsie references and I don't believe any comment was made with a racial intent.

It was a "gypsy snake oil" picture posted by Real that caused the anger. I'll see if I can find it.

If nobody takes offense, you will be the only one.  I personally couldn't care less what he says when he is in taunting mode but I will moderate it if necessary.

PROTIP: The white hot het that you experience from his taunting post, channel that energy into your power to ignore it.

Ever been bothered by a mosquito buzzing around your ear? Tried ignoring it?
To win a battle you have to understand how your foe thinks.
To beat roulette you have to understand the game and all the moves it could make to cause you loss.

The difference is that if we ignore a mosquito it is more than highly likely that we will experience physical harm but if we ignore a taunting post, it can do no harm to us.

The stronger we become in system play, the stronger our ability will be to ignore senseless taunting.  If we find ourselves too vulnerable to a taunt, it may reflect on our own weaknesses in system play. 

So maybe a dual approach where we ignore the post but determine to become stronger in our methods?
