Racist grief attack unleashed in Second Life



An ugly racist attack has just been launched in http://slurl.com/secondlife/Morris/5/252/41 Welcome Area.


Not clear who is behind this, but 2 avatars where seen riding one of the offending cubes that showed the word "nigger" crossed out and staid Nigger Free Sim. Extremely ugly scene one hopes is not a sign of racial tension in America expressing itself on the global Internet.



In the image below you can see one of the riders clearly, who later said it was 'funny'.



Sadly this is not the first such prejudice I have seen in the world of Second Life. Frankly the chat channel seemed little concerned.

What troubled me was more the lack of action by some of the people there. One female avatar called them funny.
