32%
chance

Clip or screenshot of usage of a slur (after the market is created) wikipedia defines as racist or with racial connotations will resolve this market as yes.

YES:

  • Calling someone a slur.

  • Calling something a slur.

  • Saying something is "<slur> behaviour" or someone "acts like <slur>".

  • Being unhinged and denying a slur "shut the fuck up, <slur> is not a slur"

What doesn't count as "using a slur":

  • Discussing/debating and "quoting" a slur in a civilized manner.

  • Saying "don't say <slur>"

The "welsh" "ching chang chong" bit is so close to, he just needs to push it a little more https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1659183278?t=00h29m33s

You should link the wikipedia page you are using as criteria in the description so everyone is on the same page as far as what they are betting on.

You should also be a bit more specific about what you mean by "use a racial slur". Does he have to call someone a racial slur or just say or type a racial slur regardless of the context?

@OrbiterVoltron I was thinking about any wikipedia page, be it the list of slurs or a page for the word itself mentioning any racist or race related connotations. I don't really think there will be any questions about it when it happens.

For "use a racial slur" I'm open for more suggestions, I was thinking about actually using the word, not quoting it in some discussing about the N-Word or whatever.

  • Calling someone a <slur>

  • Saying <slur>'s are ...

  • Saying something is <slur> behavior

  • Dropping the N-Bomb (high odds)

@x okay thats fair that you would accept any wikipedia page that proves that the word has a racist connotation and I agree it should be directed towards a person or group of people to count as using him a racial slur. It wouldn't count if he says, "don't say <insert slur>" or is quoting someone else saying a slur or is in a debate about slurs.

I am on the fence on if it should count if he denies that something is a racial slur (like he does with gusano or cracker) since he is justifying the use of a racial slur against the group of people it targets. Both of those words appear in the wikipedia page "list of ethnic slurs". Especially if he is just yelling at his chat about it and not in the context of debating with someone else about whether or not they are racial slurs. Personally I lean more towards yes that should probably meet your criteria, but its your market and its your decision to make.

@OrbiterVoltron I agree, "shut the fuck up, <slur> is not a slur" would be a clear yes. Generally <slur> + unhinged = yes.

Without being unhinged and just talking about those two specific ones I would lean towards no, similar to debating it but would be open to suggestions to make it more specific/clearer.

@x I think what you added to the description is pretty spot on. Most people should be able to tell the difference between ranting about why something is not a slur vs saying he doesn't think it is a slur and stating why in a calm manner
