Was checking on craigslist an ad (pontiac solstice. carbon fiber wing) about the RK Spoiler and found this guy trying to sell a Carbon fiber when RK only made a carbon fiber on top... Check out the messages from this element, I'd suggest than different people send him an SMS "I got the money nigga" :lol: that would be fun...



If the guy is on the forum, I can't do anything else than laugh on him ;) Better learn how to write.

Hmm, I read that advertisement a couple of times and short of some poor grammar and punctuation issues, I didn't see anything that noted use of the "N" word or would give the reader an indication of the seller's ethnicity.

In fact, it's just the opposite, that hand and foot in the picture appear to be from a Caucasian.

So can we hold down the racial slurs?

I'm not racial, in fact I just used the work he used on his message, wasn't referring to his ethnicity (that's why I used ""). I also checked those pictures lots of time and I'm pretty sure he's Caucasian also.

I didn't want to get the post on that direction so the simple solution is change the word. Apologies to anyone who get offended.

The word was used by the seller, not the buyer.

Duh?

Also noticed the "escribir mensaje" It appears English isn't even your first language, and yet you're 10x more fluent then this guy.

...sad the direction this country is going sometimes.

Geez, I really don't understand why people are getting so butthurt over this -_-. The seller used the word toward the OP, he was just using it as a bit of humor. No wonder there are racial tensions in this country still when everyone takes offense to everything said. It wasn't even meant as a racial slur at all.

No, I'm from Spain and Spanish is my first language. Not fluent in english but for only 3 years talking I'm not bad either...

The post was not intended to be racial, just humor/be aware of the guy behind the ad if someone was also looking for this on Craigslist.

There was nothing wrong with the post or anything from your end. It could be tasteless to some; but only racist to the ignorant or uninformed. As flaxenfilly said, "No wonder there are racial tensions in this country still when everyone takes offense to everything said. It wasn't even meant as a racial slur at all." There is a big difference between a racial slur and slang.

What is the easy way to copy texts to computer as you did? I would like to learn that.
