Please for the love of God stop using the term "PC Master Race"

Message added by SansVarnic,

Please refrain from posting comments and replies to inject politics.

 

Thank you.

Everything "nazi-realated" is not racist, nor "nazi"... in my humble opinion... 

Even the symbolics, though obviously better known as "nazi symbolism" is not something they used first by axis. For example - swastika. Old symbolics hijacked..

Matter of interpretation though.

... but I'm no expert

Not gonna lie, this thread kinda reminds me of when Speedy Gonzales episodes were pulled from airing on Cartoon Network. People who were trying to be holier-than-thou got the character's episodes pulled off the air because they were "offensive", but various Mexican advocacy groups got the character back on the air as Mexicans absolutely fucking love the characters associated with those episodes. 

The point I'm trying to make isn't exactly right there, but really, the whole point of the "PC master race" saying is to poke fun at the fact that it's a really stupid saying. People get so caught up in trying to appear virtuous that they lose any and all sense of humor and irony.

One of those things I hate about modern society. Everyone's looking for attention by pretending to be a victim now. Fricking annoying.

I fully agree, some of todays younger folks just want to try and change everything and want the spotlight on themselves, it's annoying AF.

I wish people would stop being offended on words that are clearly a joke. The other day I had bunch of idiots being offended over "Grammar Nazi" being used as someone made stupid typographical error. PC Master Race has as much to do with racism or slavery as Master and Slave had on IDE drives. NONE. STOP. BEING. PERPETUALLY. OFFENDED. BY. BLOODY. EVERYTHING.

 

Also long live PC Master Race. It's a joke. Jesus.

After having heard this term in many tech youtube videos including LTT and also read it on many forums I finally decided to bring the issue up in this thread. I live in Europe and here the term "Master Race" is commonly associated with Nazi Germany language (a so called Nazism). I don't know whether this is also the case in the U.S. and/ or Canada but let me quote Wikipedia as a reminder:

 

 

Here is the link to the entire article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_race

I am a European as well and have never associated that with PC Master Race.

You are offended by this,but PC Master Race is harmless and is not related to a real race - just a gaming platform.

There are people that get offended when things don't go their way,the kind that likes to dictate what others should and shouldn't do - some of them become SJWs.

 

Also i noticed some British English there ;)

I thought the Term was PC Gaming Master Race Gods?  While I know what the term means, many people don't outside of Computer/Console Gaming. A few times I have used PC Gaming Gods instead to avoid offense.

Not necessarily,populism comes from from society so it can happen even in the most liberal country in the world,

It depends if the regime supports it or not,for example *too political* supports populism,and *too political* use populism as it's base.

I will leave the self censored parts to you to find out.

I don't think we should ban the use of the term in forums or whatnot, but... c'mon, folks, let's move past it. It's worn out, and it's jokingly 'embracing' a Nazi concept at a time when there's a surge of real Nazis in the US and Europe.

 

Is continued use going to shatter minds or turn people racist? No (I sure hope not, anyway). But it's intellectually lazy, and we can do better. Besides, anything we can do to deny Nazis attention is good in my book.

Please read the Wikipedia article on PCMR in which it pretty much dispels your argument.

Saying we should stop using it because it's based of off Nazi's ideology is giving the Nazis attention.

 

I've never considered "PC master race" might be a reference to Nazi ideology. and the more people say "We shouldn't do X because it resembles Nazis" is just giving them ever more attention.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
 
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
        In Flanders fields.
 
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
        In Flanders fields.
