One thing is for sure: Online gaming wouldn’t exist without the passionate communities behind them. A new documentary called Live / Play looks at how League of Legends has impacted five players from around the world, including a cosplayer, a professional e-sports champion, and an aspiring game designer.

“It’s such a liberating feeling knowing that there are others out there like you,” one player says. “Millions of people like this thing too. Even though we don’t speak the same language and we grew up differently, we have something to talk about.”

You can watch the full 38-minute documentary after the jump.

zyrusticae No. Racism is a type of discrimination. If the discrimination is not based on race or racial traits, it it not racism. You can then choose to simply use the word ‘discrimination’ as a catch all, or use the more specific term, like sexism or ageism.

zyrusticae MorpayneRADIO Millions of years of evolution educating us that being different is bad don’t go away over night because it suddenly became unacceptable behavior in the last few decades.
the most vocal people about discrimination are often the most intolerant towards anyone that doesn’t see things their way, but not everyone was raised in an environment of acceptance and it’s ignorant to think they should change over night just because “we” have.

We’re better than we were 20 years ago. That is how this type of thing works.

MorpayneRADIO A lot of people are unfortunately not educated in understanding that racism is not only overt racist remarks, but also many more subtle and more insidious forms of discrimination (things like giving people the stink-eye just for looking a certain way, looking down on others less fortunate than they for being “lazy”, blaming people for problems outside of their control (i.e. victim-blaming), making comments that sound innocuous but beat people down passive-aggressively (i.e. micro-aggressions), and so on and so forth).
It’s something our education system has really failed at, frankly. Either that or our parents just suck, I dnno. The whole thing just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Most of the “majority” will agree with you while secretly feeling the total opposite.
