    Continues?
    No.

    Again he is not giving you the full story....

    After I found out he did not know here was my reply...

    It's just that he brought race into the game as if it has any meaning in whether someone is being an ape or not.
    If anything, that's racist.

    Here was his original insult...

    This certainly is going to youtube.

    Nigger is a racial slur and nothing more.
    It is also used only against Black people.
    An ape is an animal and apparently a racial slur against Blacks.

    Yeah, let's give people specific comments and finish it with "nuff said".
    The "there's nothing accidental" was refereed to captain's post, not yours.
    It was meant to show that the original post was not accidental, and was intended towards the individual, that is you.

    If he apologised but refused to disavow the statement, knowing what it meant to the one he insulted, I'd call him stubborn and insensitive. But if he truly didn't know the poster's race previously, I still wouldn't call it racism. Just unnecessarily stuborn.

    Ah this was said in the basement? In that case never mind. I will just say that going by what is said in the OP's original question my statements stands.

    I think both of you should have dropped it after you apologised BD and Apoc said he didn't know.
