Our Statement on Racism
You’ve undoubtedly heard about the protesting and rioting happening in the United States (and around the world) in response to the murder of George Floyd. It is evident that as a people, we are hurt, and are griefing. And many are seeking to express that through their right to protest against the injustices against; specifically black people, but also all people of colour.
And while we are a Minecraft server and our purpose is to provide entertainment and a place for people to escape, it’s important for us to enter the conversation and make our voice known, and our stance clear. We do not support racism in any way, shape or form. The murder of George Floyd, is just that, a murder based on racist prejudices. Many indivuals and organizations around the globe have spoken up to declare their stance on racism, and while we are still a new and small community, I want to make it perfectly clear that we do not condone, nor support racism in any way.
If you find yourself as someone who is racist towards people of colour, you can leave our community. Racism has no place in our community and on our server and anyone who makes racist remarks to another player will be banned without warning.
My goal running Minecraft servers over the years has always been to provide a safe and peaceful place for players to interact and build amazing things together. And while we may have differing opinions on politics, religion, or what movies we enjoy, we are all humans, and we should treat each other with dignity and respect.
So to re-iterate, racism has no place here. We condemn the actions of those who have murdered black lives and continue to do so, and we will continue to condemn the actions of anyone that seeks to bring those attitudes to our community. Any form of racism will be banned. We do not joke about racism. We do not participate in racism. If you participate, you will be banned, it is that simple. There will be no appeals.
Together we must stand up against the racial injustices in our world.
