I figured before I jump right into it, what's the rule (if there is any) on racist/sexist characters? Is it alright to menion any racist or sexist terms? I've wanted to play a character who is a total asshole for a while, and I just wanted to know the limitations.

Basically, the rule is to be respectful and appropriate in your handling of things. There are racist/sexist people in real life, but remember that nobody is a complete caricature. Also remember that any character needs to be able to function in a realistic school environment without getting expelled. We've had a couple well-handled characters of the sort in the past. Specifically, Robert Jenkins is worth a look.

Also, please note that profanities and racist/sexist terminology in your profile will get it denied on tonal issues.

So... basically, make absolutely positively sure you know what you're doing if you approach that sort of character, and that, while the character may be offensive, you as the writer are not being so.
Alright, I'll keep that in mind.
