Should I have said something?

there were two older guys fighting with a younger kid on Xbox live, and the whole thing started because one of the older guys called the kid gay because he was camping, and the little kid was like "I"m not gay I hate the gays" at this point I wanted to say something to the offensive little brat but didn't want to get dragged into it so I kept my mouth shut, and then the next round started and he called him gay again for camping, then they got into a HUGE fight about it and then the kid said "WOW! you must be black" as it turns out one of the older guys is black, so this kid is basically a racist anti gay idiot, I wanted to say something so badly but I didn't, and he left the lobby, should I have said something? was it wrong of me not to? I think we are all equal no matter who we love or what race we are, so I feel like by not saying anything to him was me just being cowardly, but then again the kid was like 10 or 11 so I didn't want to be immature and attack a child, and now I feel like a bad person :(

what you did wasn't wrong, but it really doesn't matter because it's people like him (and MLG's) that make Xbox live annoying and if you said something to the kid he would have gave you hell, homophobic and possibly racist comments so in my opinion it would have been a lose-lose situation

You wouldn't have been a bad person for saying something! That kid needs to learn that he can't use those things as insults! Man, you watch. Eventually he'll be swimming in a pool full of haters. No one has the right to say things like that :(

You could have, but don't beat yourself up for not doing so. The kid will most likely learn his lesson from someone else in the future.

I think you did fine by not getting involved, however, now that you know how this kid's mind works...I wouldnt play with him any more.
