- Thread: I Be that WINNING Nigger Coon
My online multiplayer experience may span over 10 years but the games I play are limited in scope; consisting of Halo, Mortal Kombat, Gears of War, Forza, Titan Fall and Injustice. Halo easily being the franchise that has the most hours spent playing under my belt. In fact, Halo 2 is the very first game I played online with others.
With online multiplayer gaming, I got to interact with other players ‘in game’ and chat with them via a headset. This was newer technology at that time and before the social media explosion.
Just like within face-to-face competitions, online matches have a lot of trash talk, which is to be expected when interacting with other males. One thing that was instantaneously noticeable was that many times the trash talk from White males was overtly racist. It didn’t matter their age…from kids to adults.
I do give the kids a pass though. When I was a kid cursing or “using bad words”, was taboo and a no-no. So when I was at home by myself, I would say curse words out loud just because I could. Once I realized my mother wasn’t going to magically materialize and smack me across my mouth, I continued to cuss whenever I wanted, outside of the ear shot of adults. For me the n-word is a curse word, so I give White kids a pass for irritatingly saying the n-word over and over and over again through anonymity of their headsets. Kids acquire questionable habits inside and outside of the home and using the n-word is no exception.
Regardless of their age however, once I grew tired of hearing it, I would just as much mute them or just take my headset off. I quickly grew content with playing without the headset and still happily engage in trash talk through instant messenger. Needless to say, I’ll occasionally get a racist message or two.
Recently I had a strange thought or one could even say, ‘feeling’ once I read my opponent's comment where he unleashed his level one racist weaponry after losing consecutive matches in Injustice 2. Here is the pic I took with my phone of my television screen.
“Pussy” or “Spammer pussy” is casual banter within online gaming. I even would’ve been cool if he said, “bitch ass nigga”, which is just as common a saying now in America as is eating sushi for lunch or dinner. Oh no…ole’boy gotta go and call me a nigger coon as a double combo move. I’m not just a nigger but also a shuck’n n’jivin coon…
I LAUGHED MY ASS OFF!
First, everyone spams and has a character they spam with. Second, why does it seem like the n-word is the instinctual go to insult for many White people? Third, (this is where my strange thought comes in) is it me or that due to their recent over usage and saturation of the word as their go to insult, that not only is it losing the sting they think it still inflicts but it has now become lame like the ‘running man’ dance?
Its Stephanie Tanner on Full House saying “don’t go there”, or “talk to the hand”, level 23 lame.
That’s why when I saw that dude took the time out to put the periods between the letters to an already lame insult; I had no choice but to laugh. Maybe it was because I was imagining the ‘claps hands together’ emoji between the letters and thinking, “oh he meant that”.
While acknowledging the insult, I was not to be distracted from the facts that lead to this back & forth and highlighted it in my reply…I’m a WINNING nigger coon! I beat his ass with Aquaman. Admittedly my retort was just as lame with the ‘devil’ on the end. I mean was I channeling Farrakan or some shit? I also want to add that the voice actor for Aquaman in the game is voiced in by the super talented Phil LaMarr…a Black man. So yeah I may be using a white character but when I use Aquaman, I’m playing like I’m fighting for my ancestors and I’m gonna try to win at all costs.
Closing, I want to provide some advice to the racist White male gamer; please get creative with your racial slurs. Below are a few real racial slurs that you should add to your lexicon of online multiplayer insults. This way you can feel superior when you confuse the hell outta your negroid recipients.
And the daily double…
Smoked Irish / Smoked Irishman (intended to insult both Blacks and Irish)

- Thread: Nintendo Switch Gaming Console
After years of rumors and speculation, Nintendo has finally revealed its latest console — the Nintendo Switch — and if early first impressions are anything to go by, it looks like it was worth the wait.
In typical Nintendo style, the Japanese company decided not to hold a big unveiling event, and instead post a simple three-minute trailer to its website and YouTube account showcasing exactly what the new console will be able to do.
From the trailer we can gather that the Switch is a portable console hybrid, designed to be taken on the road or hooked up to a TV at home. The reveal video didn’t gift us much in terms of actual specs and information, but it did show a lot of different shots of the system. We’ve broken them all down here below.
You can play the Switch on your TV, thanks to the Nintendo Switch Dock
This is what it looks like…
It uses cartridges, not discs
When you leave the house, the Switch can be pulled up out of its dock
You can then use the console on-the-move using two Joy-Con controllers, which look like this…
They can be attached to either side of the Switch…
Or you can combine them using the Joy-Con Grip…
To create a portable controller
The switch then acts as a screen, using handy fold-out stands at the back of the console
Which means you can use it to play split-screen two player
Pretty exciting, huh? The Nintendo Switch is coming out in March 2017, stay tuned for more information.
