Kanye West to Headline Call of Duty XP

Activision announces Kanye West will be the headline act at Call of Duty XP, their upcoming gathering dedicated to the Call of Duty series of military shooters, saying the hip-hop mogul will perform on September 3rd to close out the two-day event in Los Angeles. "We're pulling out all the stops," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. "We promised our attendees and fans around the world a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the first Call of Duty XP, so we're thrilled to have Kanye on board. Everything about XP will be as epic as the games themselves. Whether you're competing for one of the open slots in the $1 million tournament, playing Modern Warfare 3 for the first time, dodging paintballs in a spectacular life-size recreation of Modern Warfare 2's Scrapyard level or just mingling with developers and fellow gamers, Call of Duty XP is a celebration of one of the greatest games in the world. So what better way to top it off with one of the greatest artists in the world?" No word on whether this will include one of Kanye's moments of spontaneity.

Stephen, I've known you a long time and I respect you. And it's your house, your rules, I respect that too. I have zero problem with it. However, there is such a thing as being too sensitive and taking things out of context. Anyway, I'm not going to censor myself for those things which I think are acceptable. If you disagree and do, that's your decision. I may not agree with it, but I'll respect it.

To be clear, I understand that you did not mean what you said as a slur, but intent is not really a factor in trying to keep the discourse civil here. I can't delete one post for saying the things you did and not delete yours because of "context." I was not angry at what you did, I merely deleted your post. I was, however, surprised at the comment about me "missing" the context, which you repeat above. Keeping language like that out of these forums is not an issue of context, and it sounds like you may still be "missing" that point.

I enjoy that Space Captain says homosensitivity (did I just make that up) is due to white guilt.



Anyway, we have what, 3 people making references to that time he grabbed a microphone? Wasn't that like 4 years ago? And beaten to death? And on MTV?
Seriously?

To prove a point you litter your explanation with more slurs?

And "some of my best friends are {fill in the blank}" is such a cliche of bigotry it's not even worth addressing.

Call your friends what you want, but please don't use that language here...

not a fan of eddie murphy, blue? or SNL? or are you just hypersensitive because of white guilt? some sort of combo? or did you just want to be a stuck-up prick for the hell of it?

History has demonstrated that not nipping racially inflammatory commentary in the bud just leads to things going downhill quite rapidly.

try growing a sense of humor at some point, it lowers stress

I like to think I actually have a pretty well-developed sense of humor. I guess I'm wrong, as I didn't see how that brief out of context clip that tried to make this a joke about Kanye's race was so funny and not at all racist.

Warmest regards,
The stuck-up prick.

Sigh, Blue. It's all about context man. And sometimes you just miss it.

Using a homophobic slur as a pejorative is a matter of context, huh? Yeah, I guess I missed that...

Of all people they had to pick the world's biggest douche bag. Rifle

I consider it a perfect fit with a large percentage of the current COD fanbase.
