Im tired of RPing as an Arab

(Tian Tian Tian) #1

Why cant i just BE an arab?

You can be Asian (gallente/amarr)
You can be Black (minmatar)
You can be European (galante)
You can be American (caldari)

Yet you can not be an Arab?

I had to choose Minmatar to make myself as close to Arab as I can by looking dark brown.

I am forced to RP that i was stolen from my Native homeland of Arabia when I was young and raised in black country so have darker skin.

This is racist as hell ccp, let me be an Arab.

Thank you.

Who knows, you could be one without you knowing, from what I remember mankind left Earth long long time ago and went through a wormhole, finding New Eden. Wormhole collapsed and all knowledge of Earth was therefor forgotten. So don’t point fingers when you can actually be one already :stuck_out_tongue:

The answer is “because of this”. “European”, “American”, and “Arab” are not races. In-game, I guess Amarr, Caldari, Minmatar, and Gallente are “races”, but “Arab” is NOT related to anything in-game and you are NOT roleplaying in any way when you try to involve RL into the game.

In fact your post is probably against the forum TOS, even with the less restrictive TOS rules for these new forums.

OFC u can RP arab in game, bombers only take 20 days to train LOLOL

Minmatar. Black. Does not compute. Did you even look at a Sebiestor or a Vherokhior? What part of them is black?

Heck, Sebbies can be whiter than the Gallente.

I’m Minmatar.

Does that mean I’m …

Hey, wait a sec

Dunno how new you are but in the old character creator minmatar were forced to be black pretty much across the board and there wasn’t much way around it. Pretty much everyone was a caricature and had offensivesterotypucal features. Amarr were super old looking assholes, gallente wre extremely gaunt emaciated hippies with buggy eyes, minmatar were black, and well… Caldari actually hasbt changed with the huge bodybuilder physiques and huge chins.

(Elmund Egivand) #9

It’s changed alot since then, hasn’t it? So what’s there to complain about?

(Krima Sumyungi) #10

You’re right, claiming growing up with black people makes your skin darker is racist, you racist piece of ■■■■.

Oh, one more thing: being from Arabia doesn’t make Arab a race. The same as there is also no “American race”. Dipshit. “Arab” is a cultural and geographical identifier, that’s it.

Ethnic identity: someone who considers him or herself to be an Arab (regardless of racial or ethnic origin) and is recognized as such by others. Race: The term “Arab” does not refer to a particular race. Arabs include Caucasians and Africans with ancestral origins in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East.

Crack open a dictionary someday.

Not really a troll, more like desperate overreach

(DeMichael Crimson) #12

Brother, you must have been playing a different Eve than what I was playing cuz my old Minmatar character sure isn’t black.

(Elmund Egivand) #13

He looked like he came right out of Manchuria.

(Matthias Ancaladron) #14

Lol no one’s complaining except op cause he’s trolling. ni kunni is already pretty much arab-esque, if he put any effort into character creation hed be able to make a decent looking guy if he’s upset about that. I used that for mine because true amarr couldn’t pull off these cheeks/jaw. But for RP purposes I consider him true amarr lol.

Anyway idk crimson that’s about what I remember being the lightest possible color and it’s still definitely on the darker end compared to what CCP allowed for the different bloodlines and what they allow for now with a wide range available for everyone. It’s nice they added more variety even if im still waiting for a native American style bloodline. I always felt shoehorned into being a sterotype with minmatar and it left me with a bad taste in my mouth even today. Idk who at ccp thought it was appropriate to also have them be slaves in the lore lmao.

i, without any sarcasm behind it, encountered US Americans who called me a racist for making fun of them. They don’t like being pointed at certain studies proving their intellectual standing in the world. :blush:
