the ignorance is JUMPING out

- it's one thing to say "there's a 4 person premade who keep voting together." it's another thing to say "there's a 4 person spanish premade who keep voting together and make it hard for me to build bonds with them because they usually speak spanish so their english isn't great"
1) you know what you meant by putting emphasis on the language and adding that detail in. nothing in what you say is unintentional, whether it's your subtle racism making an appearance or not
2) do you guys not realize that many people on this website – spanish, european, asian, etc – literally learned a new language just to communicate with us ?????????? so if they have a few words used incorrectly, i'm sure you can read through the lines OR, worst case scenario, you can *respectfully* ask them to clarify what they meant!!!
yes, stars is a game based around communication and i understand why a premade shutting a group out would be annoying, but to blame that on a language barrier is straight up discriminatory and lame
if you genuinely want to chat with them and aren't just doing this in an attempt to gain sympathy from supporters despite being a rumored premade yourself, use a translation service so they can better understand you :) it may not be perfect, but it's better than whining about how you got nominated with someone in your frat as if that wouldn't have happened if they were english speakers nominating you
