Everything in RL is waiting for you in SL, including Racism

The friends of Flesher were evicted from an SL group for talking about the lack of African participation. In making a protest to the group this is the discourse that followed, it is a bit disturbing but is shows the degree that America's race conflict structures SL and it turning it sadly in to a white skinned universe.

[15:49] Roy Smashcan: In the old days on Usenet, we had proper trolls...
[15:49] Mordecai Scaggs: Sir, whatever your greivances, this is not a forum for political debate, so please take your worthy cause to the proper forums in Sl. There have been activities in Sl designed to raise awareness about the terrible situation there, but this is not one of them.
