Steam added the word Jap as a racial slur for the abusive language filter. Jap is the Afrikaans translation of Yep.


Dornogol

we also say Jap in germany isntead of Ja (yes) sometimes, I have to mod and allow some pretty stupid shit in my chat sometimes. The one me and friends always laugh about is when someone was writin: Eine große Cola (a large coke) and it got censored out becuase it featured ei**NE** **GRO**ße cola, even though it was not only with a space (yeah I know common wat to circumvent censoring) but also had letters attached before and after (making up two totally different words)


MoefsieKat

In afrikaans we wouldn't have that problem since we spell Eine as Een. Een Groot Cola.


Dornogol

is the language derived from dutch or something similar? because that really sounds like it :O


MoefsieKat

It is.


WinterHoldSavior

G E K O L O N I - i'm sorry


ProudToBeAKraut

> we also say Jap in germany well, if anything we say Jep - not Jap - no idea if that is your regional thing


Schw4rztee

I've heard it said with every vowel there is.


RexTyhogi

J(sometimes y)p


Pridetoss

Also a thing in the nordic languages - Japp, Jepp, Jupp, Jöpp all just means "yes", but is usually used to affirm something, e.g; "Was that our old teacher from school?" "Jepp"


Dornogol

nah we certainly say Jap around in the rhine-land region


RexTyhogi

R6 Seige made it so that you couldn't say negro in chat internationally, which made some callouts really difficult in some other languages


MrZeLlama

I remember getting banned during a comp game for typing raccoon I assume because the chat system just focused on the coon part lmao I ended up getting a few people kicked from games asking in all chat what that animal rocket is from guardians of the galaxy


v0rtexbeater

Reminds me of GTAV, that game holds a record for the most n words said in any videogame, yet they censored "jap" on a song in the radio.


OneOverTwo

I'm guessing that that was censored because it was in-universe censorship because it was, y'know, on the radio.


Coolstreet6969

Malaysians also say it as it's shorthand for "sekejap", which means hold on. Fun fact: There's a snack similar to m&ms called [Nips](https://i.imgur.com/WJryJUy.jpg) as well. It's peanut covered with chocolate and I love it, food colouring galore.

or straight-up negro that is being used for black people. that's pretty much the official way. calling someone black in Russian is not a good idea, though.


GoldenSpermShower

Because it literally means black in many European languages


Edge_Mobile

It's also the official way in brazilian portuguese


Bloodyfish

In NYC the Russian speaking community has been using chorniy.


KingConq

In Brazilian Portuguese 'negro' just means black, without negative connotations. Yeah, it can be used to refer to skin tone, but it's also the same word used in the localization of names like Marvel's Black Cat, DC's Black Lightning, and Yu-Gi-Oh's Red-Eyes Black Dragon.


Ugly_Ass_Tenno

Negro means black in spanish and you get banned on facebook for writing it


KaiMemeBoi

Bruh this is like that time people were angry over 那个 cos it sounded like rasism

drunkbeforecoup

It's a legit problem that tech companies can barely handle moderation in English and is even worth in other languages. Getting banned because a word in your language sounds like a slur in English is on the lower end of the problems this causes, facebooks lack of moderation helped enable a genocide in Myanmar.

SklLL3T

😱


KingConq

"***Nigersaurus*** is a genus of rebbachisaurid sauropod dinosaur that lived during the middle Cretaceous period, about 115 to 105 million years ago. It was discovered in the Elrhaz Formation in an area called Gadoufaoua, in the Republic of Niger. Fossils of this dinosaur were first described in 1976, but it was only named ***Nigersaurus taqueti*** in 1999, after further and more complete remains were found and described. The genus name means 'Niger reptile', and the specific name honours the palaeontologist Philippe Taquet, who discovered the first remains." From [Wikipedia](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nigersaurus), the free online encyclopedia.

Tiggara

Yeah cause it's like slangs in English you don't say all the words out. Just like getting turned into gettin. In "那個“ you slip the 一 in the middle


[deleted]

[удалено]


Tiggara

Yes of course but if you do it in Google translate type nei ge it will show 那個. if you slow down "nei ge" you will notice a clear yi being pronounced


something39

I think it’s just a way of speaking like how British people have a British accent when people speak the just add sounds for it to be easier to say IDK I’m from Taiwan maybe it’s different where you’re from


robozom

那一个。(na4 yi1 ge4; that one) 哪一个?(na3 yi1 ge0; which one?) 那个,那个。(na4 ge0, na4 ge0; that one, that one) 拿一个。(na2 yi1 ge4; I'll take one) Edit: added hanyu pinyin, and explanation.


BannedOnTwitter

wtf ive been taught to pronounce 那個 as neige


SappyPaphiopedilum

Nth wrong with that, nage and neige essentially means the same thing in Chinese. Both means "that" in a mono tone and means "which?" if u emphasis the na/nei


_-_Sigma_-_

Say vinegar as fast as you can, and then it turns into a racial slur


smg34life

How does "this" sound racist


KaiMemeBoi

那个 - pronounced as “nèigè” Its similarity relates it to the n word


iAmTheElite

They prefer the term “bipocge”.


RentonTenant

It’s like Americans trying to get British people to say ‘snicker’ instead of ‘snigger’.


dankmemer2o18

its kinda strange that its proniunced as "na-ge" where i live but still its stupid to cancel a word that mildly resembles a slur

Tomahawkist

or that one reaction to montenegro, which is a legitimate country and has nothing to do with racism, but everything with the origin of the racist word (the word black in romanic languages)

Honest to God can’t tell when old tumblr posts are trolling or not, there used to be entire accounts dedicated to saying shit like this


69thAirborne

Lol SB19 highly based. I, as a Filipino, really hated how much these dumb Americans be policing us for "using N-word as island name" mate blame the fucking Spanish for naming the island based off of the people's skin tone living there. And it's as if they did not brutally police our country for the first few years of their occupation and were hella racist to us.


Extension-Bake-4643

Yo, fellow Filipino here! Absolutely hate how alot of Filipinos who are commonly on the internet like to live with a Western mentality even when conversing with fellow countrymen. I had a really stupid argument with a Filipino once where they were offended at word play that used "Negros" in it, even though the joke was told in Filipino and had no derogatory intentions behind.


69thAirborne

It's like they'd also absorbed the "White Saviour" mentality. They're always there trying to be offended on behalf of us and others, but when real shit hits the fan, they fucking disappear in the wind. Bonus points if they upbraid for "being helpful" all of the time, always asking for something back immediately. True helping is when they truly need it (and request for it) and you give it without asking for something in return.


MediocreIncome2581

The Spaniards encountered many black people with black kinky hair among the inhabitants, they called the island Negros. Kabilin, a book on provincial history, edited by Merlie Wenceslao and Bobby Villasis, mentions what seemed to be the first known documentary reference to the island of Negros appears in an atlas drawn in 1545 by the renowned Spanish cartographer Alonso de Santa Cruz (c.1490-1567). Santa Cruz’s map bears the legend y de Negros, probably derived from reports of the presence of small black people (negritos) on the island. Thus, a score of years before the Legaspi expedition, the Spaniards already knew the island of Negros by this name. At that time, there were two (2) types of forest dwellers, the black natives called Ata or Agta (Negrito) and the Proto-Malay also known as Bukidnon with dark brown skin. Negros oriental Province government is the source website


JoHaTho

I remember meming googling the 4th island of the philippines back in the day. Similar to the more recent 25th island of greece meme which sadly doesnt work anymore. at least for me


wifiragist

This twitter outrage is just straight up BS, especially since in the Philippines, there's a place called "negros occidental"


Fogforevery

Im sorry but "neige" means "snow" in French, and it is completely inappropriate to the current season here, so [says random shit about how it is in appropriate to use a word that sound likes another word in another language because why the fuck not]


grzesiu447

It's probably autodetected. I doubt Japanese people would use Japanese if they weren't on Japanese server, and people on that server wouldn't report that.


CommanderVinegar

MBA professor at a Californian University was suspended for saying the Chinese filler word for “that” in his international business lecture. The word sounds similar to the slur we all know but he obviously was not saying it. Ridiculous.


Vvzy

English is the default language of the world, that is all that matters /s


killmeinthehead

This situation comes off as if like English is the only 'valid' language and other languages and their vocabulary means nothing. So being racist while calling out racism in a way..and I see happen that a Lott on twitter lately. Not that I use Twitter, I just keep hearing such stupid drama and people having cringe takes over anything.

Let me say one simple to people like you Never ever get close to twitter Even if you do Just follow artist and no one else Because thats what i do You are doing something good for yourself and for the world

In fact id argue people that claim thats racist are kinda racist. In apex i assume its just a badly configured filter tho

MediocreIncome2581

in my language Tagalog, negro is a term for a tan/tanned person and a dark skinned person. Commonly used by parents for the sentence "Wag ka pa-negro" (En- Don't get tanned) to avoid sunburns or getting tanned (not to be racist i guess).


Greenfrog74
