Default Hello World!

I am Space Negro, don't mind the silly name, i've been known to be random like that.

You may call me Sophie, if you prefer. I'm somewhat of a computer science enthousiast with an affinity for information security and programming i'll be looking forward to answering some of your questions. So go ahead, ask me anything.

To include a race in a name makes the name racist by definition.
If you put your sexual preference in your name, you are being sexist.
Using that to differentiate yourself is what makes it so.
So, yeah. Its a racist name in spite of your claims and is reiterated by your use of the racial epephet in your reply. Thanks for proving me right.

Hi Sophie, welcome to the forums
Your username caused a bit of a stir only because, as you'll find, the folks here are very accepting of all different kinds of people from all over the world. That's what makes it great. Usernames aside I look forward to reading your posts and hopefully we can have some good discussions.

I kind of doubt there will be a lot of questions that can be answered by someone that misspells 'enthusiast' and doesn't capitalize 'I'll' that can't be found with a short Google search, but I'll keep you in mind, thanks.

Welcome. Might want to ask Janet H to change that username, or make a new account.

Welcome aboard

Are you really negro, or is it just a name?

I think I'll change my name to Saudi_Smart_Guy (those do exist, really! )

Do you think that blacks can't be astronauts? Of course they aren't called 'space negro's' they are African American Astronauts, and there is a list of them on NASA's site.

Some of the smartest guy working on the HP Indigos were the guys from Israel, of course that's where they were invented before HP bought the tech.
I have never had the privilege of working on any Saudi Tech yet.

Nope, I don't think blacks can't be astronauts. Why do you ask?

Yes, I don't doubt Israel has some good hard working people there. Intel has a factory there, for example, so it makes sense that there are local expertise for such a company to borrow.

Don't expect much even in the near future from Saudi Arabia. Something is seriously wrong with us.

Lets not turn this into a debate.
Space Negro is apparently gone anyway. Thank "god" for that.

Color and believes doesn't matter at all.
And that comes from a guy that was previously racist.

Sorry Smart guy.
I was a racist between the age of 14 and 17. But i am wiser today.

Sorry

Just that you said that "they really exist' as if to imply something...never mind, I was still perterbed by the OP, it isn't you.
But since you brought it up, Saudis are excellent at producing oil without wich not a lot of other things would be produced...is that reaching too far?

Well you are excellent consumers.

God, being a proper name and (possibly) a title should be capitalized weather you are a believer or not.
I don't believe in Michael Jackson, but I still capitalize the name. lol

Since there are many gods in the world and someone might not be talking about the 1 god that some may believe in, god isn't a proper name and shouldn't be capitalized.

Oh, it's not a debate or anything, I'm not questioning anyone here really. It's just some kinda socializing. You know, like what happens when friends gather

Why are you apologizing? Things are cool.

You were racist? Well, such things happen in young age sometimes. I'm also sure it was not the harmful kinda racism, just the case with other behaviors by youngsters normally. No worries. Growing up and revising that is what matters

Aha! No, by "they really exist" I meant it for the Saudi Smart Guys. I asked the OP'er if they were really negro just to clear my doubts maybe they made the username based on it. Kinda like asking an owner of a user name like "Saudi_Guy" if they are Saudi. Just a friendly conversation really

Unless one is referring to a specific theological god. In my line of work we capitalize "Client" for example. Smart, eh?
