Large corporations FINALLY taking action against racism on Gamer sites

It looks like another benefit from the racial consciousness that is a ramification of the George Floyd murder by a cop is that big companies like Microsoft, XBOX, and Playstation are cracking down on racists gamers who have harassed minorities and women for a long time under the sponsorship of many of these companies.

This is particularly bad in light of the fact that children are prevalent on game sites and don't need to be exposed to such poison.

Itís about Mil Grau, a Brazilian youtuber and streamer who often uses his social media and video game content to launch messages racists, sexists, homophobes, sexists And trasphobs. Several users have publicly exposed these facts and the issue has transcended so much that Xbox decided to take drastic action.
Xbox Brazilís own profile Twitter had already made public his disengagement with Mil Grau. ďThe content of the Mil Grau does not reflect our core values of respect, diversity and inclusion. We have already asked you to remove our brand from your channels and the rest of your social networks,Ē the tweet of the platform said.

Shame on Microsoft, Xbox, and PlayStation and the others for sponsoring this racists slob for so long.

Youtube and a gamer site called Twitch also banned him

Expect to hear the right-wing hypocrites complaining about censorship

1. I watch some of the few good gamers out there.

There have been a lot that I had to quit watching because they were so preachy in their hatred for women, which seems to be the #1 target most bigoted gamers have. One was so preachy that he kept complaining about the remake of Ghost Busters having women in it. He kept going back to that until I just couldn't' stand watching anything he did any more. He *seemed* ok before that. Once he got on that topic, though, he was a like a broken record and preachy about it, just every time you turned around that's what he was saying AGAIN. He became like a preacher against women. He was disgusting. I cannot believe he was married, but he was. I won't watch him now.

The bigoted ones usually hate women, the most, I have noticed, but if you do stick around anyhow, they end up showing they are racist too. I tend to leave when they harp on how much they hate women, because I am one and I don't see the point when there are good gamers out there who aren't obsessed with how much they hate women. Some are subtle but still racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, etc.

What also gets me is that a lot of them are part of groups they create that specifically say they are against racism, sexism, and other forms of bigotry. These are groups/collectives of gamers that are supposed to be free of bigotry, but half the gamers in those groups are total sexist, racist, and/or homophobic and transphobic assholes. I can name at least one of them that for sure are lying about their purpose and how the gamers in that group really are. I hope they go after those too, for pretending to be anti-bigotry, when in fact, they are very pro-bigotry.
