    I personally agree with the basic message of BLM, but in certain instances not the execution (more of an All-LM guy personally). But also I would like to be able to close the banner please and thank you, it's just barely squishing my feed and it's the slightest annoyance that there is indeed an 'x' button that does not work.

    My point is that Discord should be a non-politcal service. I do not care about BLM and therefore I don't want to be bothered with it. Also, as a white person, I feel personally insulted by the implied accusation of "white supremacy".

    I agree with you on this, if they want to get rid of "white supremacists" from there own company then by all means go ahead, but if there trying to shove there political garbage on me and me friends than i dont think i can support this platform anymore.

  • Madsman (Kieron)

    I wont be spending another penny on a company that's gonna shove a political ideology down my throat. I pay for products, not political campaigns.

  • Master♒le

    Discord shouldn't be political, period.

  • tigr

    What the hell Discord, I'm not even in the US. Why do I see this?

  • JDiaz

    If you can't close it, restart Discord.

  • eljayj

    I strive to keep politics off of my discord server. We welcome all gammers period! This should be taken down immediatly.

  • neptune

    wanting to reduce the number of deaths of black people isnt political 💖 it's a basic request 💕 anyway yes restarting the app allows you to close the banner

  • Lag Incarnate

    @JDiaz Just restarted the program, banner's still stuck. Didn't have this problem checking the browser version, and it doesn't even show up on the app. It seems to just be the desktop program that's stuck.

    Edit: Okay, apparently Discord has the Skype sort of deal where logging out and closing the window doesn't actually turn it off. Now it'll close.

  • neptune

    you need to close it in your taskbar as well. i did that and it worked

  • Rene

    @neptune BLM is not just about reducing the number of deaths of black people. It is a hypocritical racist political movement that I do not endorse. Therefore I do not want to pay for it. Simple as that.

  • Codex

    Remove this bullshit , nobody cares about your propaganda and social justice.

  • Tomm

    well time to leave this shitty voip and head straight to teamspeak or steam call, this is a joke.

  • TLoD_Snake

    I don't care neither about white or blank lives, all humanity should vanish in hell fire and Cats are the true master race of Earth. Remove this bullshit from Discord app, I use it to relax and play with my friends, not to take part in your political charade.

  • Codex

    Not wanting to be involved in your insanity is not racism.

  • ADawg

    My discord will be deleted as soon as my friends and I find a replacement platform





    TRUMP 2020!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Rene

    Just to make that clear: my original post is not at all about being pro Trump or having any other political opinion, so don't hijack this thread for your personal struggles. In fact I don't even live in the US and I do not care about all the american drama. I just don't want the VOIP service that I paid for to subject me to any political influencing whatsoever. Just leave me alone with your opinion on how bad white people are.

  • ADawg

    Don't care, I want to talk about trump in my discord without liberal betas getting upset over it! Or censoring and deleting what we say!

    We are still looking into new platforms, might just do oldschool teamspeak or ventrillo. 



  • Catzk3

    I am cancelling my Nitro, No way I want to be associated with a company that endorses such a hatefully divisive movement, I come here to chill with my friends not have your companies political propaganda shoved down my throat... 

  • Mario.

    I personally agree with the BLM message, however having a banner that is only able to be closed after a restart, and given to people like myself in the UK about US situations just is really egregious. If it was a post on the forum, a couple of weeks ago (because you are super late to this, this really looks like PR gone wrong) and was either a more global message or just shown to US users, I wouldn't be too mad

  • perkele

    Absolutely agree. The user should atleast be able to close the banner. Its not just a statement when you are forced to look at it if you just wish to use the service. Unless this was meant to make users frustrated with BLM movements terrorism.

  • deadlights

    it’s Okay to be White.


  • racingrattata

    Lot of white supremacist garbage here, apparently.

    Nobody cares if you give money, garbage. Nobody cares if you leave, garbage. In fact, garbage is meant to be thrown out.

  • Bestbuy345

    I hope to god you are just  trolling.


  • racingrattata

    Me? Of course not. Read the comments above. The type of people who call anything non-white, LGBT+, feminist, etc. "politics" are white men (and the occasional self-hating white woman). They're whining about social justice and a BANNER. They're screeching about no longer using or giving money to Discord.

    There's also a ton of racist dogwhistles, though many of them aren't even subtle about it. Stuff like "All Lives Matter" is ONLY used in response to BLM. They don't actually think all lives matter. They're calling BLM "terrorism" (it isn't, at all), they're claiming it's "propaganda" and they're calling liberals "betas." It's classic MAGA, white supremacist stuff. Someone even said "it's okay to be white" which is a dogwhistle for racists. Nobody ever says that who doesn't have a racist agenda.

    They are garbage.


    It's also super easy to get rid of the banner. Yes, the "x" should work but it's easy to restart the app (including closing it from the icon tray) then clicking "x". However, racists are not intelligent people. They chose to work themselves into a frenzy screaming about people who actually care about human rights.

  • Bestbuy345

    Ok, then why are you here? If this stuff offends you that much, why are you bothering to come here and leaving a comment? Besides, it's just people voicing their concerns in regards to what discord is doing and they have every right to do so. same as you but you  don't have to label everyone with such a broad strock.

    -Marriage is between a man and a woman.
    -Modern day feminism is a meme.
    -Forcing your political beliefs on your customers has consequences.
    -If I am racist, why does my family contain every race in it?
    -If I am racist, why is my wife not 100% white?
    -It is OK to be white.
    -It is also OK to be black, brown, whatever.
    -Conservatives are going to react when companies post stuff against their political views.
    -Companies will either shrug it off or change their tune due to diminishing revenue.
    -Discord is not a protest platform for scrawny white beta male liberals to project their white guilt onto the rest of us.
    -I dont take orders from "males" that cant benchpress their bodyweight!
    -I also dont take orders from Kerens!

    Yes I am a toxic, white, successful male that doesnt care about your laundry list of inadequacies!

  • Catzk3

    @racingrattata so are you saying it is NOT okay to be white? 

  • TroubledShotGun

    Anyone wanna make bets on what the next big online communication site is gonna be called if they keep this bull shit up??

    My guess is "Talk" due to the use of ventrillo/ventriloquist, teamspeak, And now Discord (discord/discourse) due to all having to do with communication.
