I dunno about that. A few months ago a certain jerk was tossing the same
racial slur around, probably thinking it made him hip and cool, and said he'd
use it as he damn well pleased.

After that a wave of political correctness swept the entire ML. Let's be
consistent here... if you're going to be PC with regards to sexual
orientation, let's not have double standards when it comes to race.

>i know this is nothing to do with gundam.......

This has everything to do with Gundam - the idea of racial discrimination
based on place of origin has been central to the U.C. conflicts. Even
in the OVAs like 0083 you see how racism is portraited as being ignorant
and ill-mannered (Monsha's spacenoid putdowns, anyone?).

You just can't resist sliding that one in, eh?

>my true apology......

Joaquin was merely politely pointing it out. Don't take it personally.
