Yeah Ik. I originally made it as an alt that wasn't meant to be used. Anyways, I wasn't expecting anyone to get worked up over it. Im not saying it wasn't bad and I should suffer consequences, but im just trying to tell ya this wasn't meant to be offensive at all. As for why I did it? I was trying to make a meme of the well known terrorist phrase as a funny joke, not be racist.
Please don't call it "terrorist phrase". That phrase originally has religion specific meaning. Its just coincidental that some terrorists used it and therefore is not reasonable to insult a religion just because of that. And to make it clear, meme-ing something like that is the same as insulting.

The whole point here is that IM NOT TRYING TO BE INSULTING. I DO NOT WANT/TRY TO INSULT ANYONE. IT WAS THE RESULT OF AN ACCIDENT. A REALLY, REALLY REALLY STUPID CHOICE. I call it a terrorist phrase because that's that I was taught about it as, but I acknowledge its now. Im sorry if that offends. Im really, really not trying to offend or insult.

If you don't mean to offend people then answer one thing : why are you calling it a meme ?! a terrorist phrase !? again and again . Just accept your mistake and stop calling it "terrorist joke" . People come here to play game NOT to engage in some religious scruffle . Keep your personal perspectives to yourself . I am not asking you to respect either but stop disrespecting a significant religious phrase again and again .

Dude, im not trying to disrespect the phrase. I've been calling it based on my previous perspective of the phrase, however that's a really good point and I do see now how referring to it as a "meme" or "terrorist phrase" was disrespectful. I'll stop referring to it now as those.

And to answer your one question, Ive been referring to it like that because I found out of the phrase like that, and had that description of the word stuck in my head, so call it ignorance.

Edit: Im not trying to justify what I did because it was a Mistake just fueled by ignorance, not Racism, and that that ignorance turned into unintended racism.
