Former Council of Stellar Management candidate riverini became the center of critics after blurting racist remarks in-game.

A 10 day ban [A]fter [P]etitioned [R]acist [I]nsults in [L]ocal

Controversy arised when during an in game engagement in the Tenal region, riverini blurted racist remarks at his Deklein Coalition enemies in local chat. Deklein Coalition are known for their racially inclusive and mutually respectful standards and as such they swiftly petitioned the offending remark. Riverini issued an apology shortly after being informed of the on-going petitions:

I apologize for my behavior, I must admit I was under the influence of Alcohol. Still after mentioning how drunk I was, am not going to shield myself on it. I fucked up. I made a mistake and am really sorry for it.

CCP’s hand was swift and firm as riverini was punished with a 10-day and a first-strike admonition. We contacted the “fallen celebrity” for comment to which he responded:

This is a disgrace for the game, the players and free speech. I am of 1/16th of black descent. My best friend is black, I have a black half-brother which I care a lot for, and I live in a country of predominant black/mulato population. Personally I feel appalled for this whole scandal given that I am EVE’s most famous latino player. First the Mittani and now this. Eve Online is going South.

Riverini did mentioned on him contesting the ban and pointing out the GM how unfair the response has been.

While my remarks were certainly of reproachable nature, there are truly racist players in EVE going unpunished. just take a look at eve-live and you will see what am talking about. Right now am feel a growing embittering feeling in me.

    "Your a fucking moron"

    The irony makes me snicker. Also, the French word for black is noir.

      'The etymology of the word 'niger' is from the Latin word for 'black'. In botanical nomenclature, where the species name is niger, this indicates that some aspect of the organism is black.'

    is giving the ban hammer only fit for mittani for saying drunk comments (not N-word) but not anyone else.

    Free speech cuts all ways, not just for your friends but everyone.

    fair enough, aslong as mr vee gets banned now to, in some youtube clips he says "niggers" and secondly inciting ppl to harrass a suicide case is different to exchanging words with goons, nevermind chat ive seen some truly terible links posted in local by goons, but its not like i can petition them all

    So a spacenigger calls a nigger a nigger, and Icelandic iceniggers take offense that the niggernigger was called a nigger so the spacenigger got in trouble. but when all the other spaceniggers start reading this nigger news they think its funny because they realize not only is niger a country full of niggers but the spacenigger who called the nigger a nigger and got banned by iceniggers isn't the april fools joke. But it's not.

    The real nigger joke here is that the nigger who got called a nigger couldn't be a nigger at all. Why do you ask? He was on a computer.

    mittani might had swallow his own words, since now he has -A- block after his ass and his budies up north.

      Apparently someone hasn't heard that -A- aren't going to be grinding structures. Even if it's true, they're a bit late to the Tenal party.
