Honda has had a major auto presence here in central Ohio for some twenty years now, and I have a cousin who has worked there from the start. Noll is 100% correct.KimRYoung wrote: There are many derogatory terms for Asian’s, but comparing the shortened Jap with the “N-Word” is so far over the top as to be absurd.
Guargantua's comments are not only distasteful, but again, racial in nature and tone, which speaks volumes about him.Gargantua wrote:Seeing JAP over and over, always made me wonder... "How many Japs did Harris Senior Kill?" and "How many japs had to die to inspire A&A"? Hahaha.
Noll has a completely valid point here, there is a world of difference between political correctness and racially insensitive/inflamitory comments.Thantonous wrote:How about we just get back to the game Noll, lets quit worrying about Political correctness.
The last two pages of this thread are a disturbing read, to say the least.
I also know a few nice Japenese guys who find it offensive, and of course
I´m glad if no one call me "Kraut" or something else only because I´m a german guy
Aretha Franklin has a nice song called R.E.S.P.E.C.T
So how many would buy a Computer version of Global 1940 and what would you like to see? Many have stated that it would be pretty easy to do, what is everyones
That's very presumptious, and I fail to see where anything I have said, anywhere on this site even hints at the allegations you are making.but again, racial in nature and tone, which speaks volumes about him.
He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world's believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good disposition." --Thomas Jefferson (1785)
Be careful what you allege - and provide PROOF, else be called a Liar Kauf.
And if anything... Noll going around typing - and I'll quote
is what's offensive."Nigger" ~Noll
If any of you actually READ what I write you will quickly realize the clarity of my position.
There are many other derogatory terms for these invaders, which I will not repeat, but JAP is, and WILL REMAIN unoffensive ~Gargantua
WORSE you have dropped the N bomb publicy, what a despicable act, I hope you recieve disciplinary action for using such a derogatory term on a family website. ~Gargantua
We've both made our very CLEAR statements. I accept the proposal to move forward despite obvious inaccuaracies.
Regarding thoughts on the Video game... well, who OWNS the rights to Axis and Allies? If it's not Larry Harris? then Who? and how much would it be worth? If we the fans bought them, to give them back to Larry, on the Premise he gave us what we wanted... that would be worth thinking about!
FOR THE RECORD I DRIVE A TOYOTA - HONDA's are for the WEAK
As for Noll, I didn't like bringing in the "N" word either, that too was over the top.
You both (and the rest of us too) should go back and edit those couple posts, and move on. Trying to defend your positions is only going to draw more fire. Just go back and fix it
I think you crossed the line when you put a face to it in that quote about Harris Senior.
I appreciate what you think and your comments are noted. I think differently however. That's all. If we went to war with Japan today, it would be just as acceptable to use the term in Media, or amongst the Marine corp and the general public as it was then, and IS NOW.I think it was disrespectful to his memory and other the vets that fought on both sides in this case
Infact there is a government body, called the FCC that regulates "offensive" terms from conventional family media.
If the term "JAP" Is not considered an offensive word by the GOVERNMENT of your country, or mine, and there are no legal ramifications or implications for using the term publically, thus there is no problem, despite what anyone thinks (You or I).
I hold my stance because This is a slippery slope gentlemen, I can just see it years from now, your kids, are going to be telling my kids, to call them "Minor Attracted Persons" instead of "Pedophiles". And they'll both be as equally entrenched!
This really isn't the place for this... perhaps General Discussion at AA.org? We're supposed to be making comments to make the game better here!
