Racism on the Internet

Hey everyone.

This might seem random, but I was recently thinking about racism on Japanese-interest websites. If you've gone to Japanese-interest forums or chat rooms, have you encountered racism? Did you find that you were basically the only black person in the chat room or on the forum, and so felt singled out or had a hard time convincing others that the racist person was being... well, racist?

This has happened to me before. I was on Rosetta Stone's and, in the Japanese chatroom, someone said that black people are porch niggers. When I reported him, people were upset at me. Today, when I was on, someone said, "What's up, negros?" When I complained about this to the mods of the site, they said that the poster wasn't being racist or offensive.

Has anyone noticed a similar trend in their experience? How did you guys deal with it?

i haven`t noticed any similar trend in that such things as this tend to happen more on Japanese-interest sites/chatrooms. i think that things like this happen everywhere in general.

how do i deal with it? i usually don`t bother dealing with it because i doubt anything would be done about it in the first place, i just end up avoiding the person/site in question.
