Well, I believe that there is racism on this board, as I have seen it for myself, however, I think that the majority of what you are experiencing are simply shallow and callous people who are attempting to say the most hurtful thing they can think of in order to tear you down, as opposed to true racism with intent behind it, and when you argue, you play into that shit. Also, I think your internet arguing is not only garnering you hate on the internet, it is also garnering you hate in real life as well, even if you are just fighting trolling with trolling. Just let these faggots say what they want, and if some of them are actually racist, then that is their problem to live with. I have fuckin' done ONE battle that warranted minimal attention, lost it, and as soon as that happened, people started showing up in tinychat telling me that I suck, I'm a loser, etc. I responded by just going with it like; "yeah, I know I suck", because I knew that if I argued about it, it would just get worse. Some people are just miserable and misery loves company, man. You also have to realize that yes, battling is a hobby, and should be regarded as such, but there are many hobbies that people take PRETTY FUCKIN' SERIOUSLY. Go to someone's house who builds models and accidentally knock one over, smashing it on the floor, and see how he reacts. Or simply tell him how irrelevant and inconsequential his hobby is, and see how he reacts. That is essentially the same thing you are doing when you state that "battling isn't that important". Some people might get butthurt when you say that, man, jusssayin'. I honestly don't think you should quit, though. You should really keep going. You could get a title match if you have another showing like the one you just had. Real talk.
