GamingThread WoW/FFXIV streamer Asmongold has a recent history of using ableist slurs and defending the use of racial slurs
Reason User Banned (permanent): Excusing racism and trolling around racism concerns over multiple posts
Not in that video you posted. He says slurs are bad but there's value in distinguishing between people with different intent which is almost tautologically true. Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes calling a jew a kike vs NBA player Meyers Leonard doing the same during a CoD match is different, but both are bad. Unless your take on slurs is utterly one-dimensional (like "the effect is the only thing that matters"), you have to agree with this. Intent matters and you know it's true: A black person calling another black the n-word is no big deal, because the intent is made obvious by the fact that the person is unlikely to be racist against themself. The effect (being offended, being discriminated against, etc.) is obviously heavily affected by the assumed intent. If you have a different reading of that video, feel free to share your interpretation.
