It's Human nature. When online people have total anonymity and they know there will be little or no consequence for their actions.
People like this have been around since the birth of the internet and they will continue to be here long after we have given up trying to reason to them.
My advice, ignore them. People can be dicks and there isn't much we can do about it.
Feel free to report them if you wish but I doubt a temperory ban from XBL will deter them from such behaviour.

People yell racist stuff because a lot of people aren't mature enough to ignore it like any other insult. If someone called you a queer, you'd probably just let it slide, but if they called you a n*gger, you'd probably explode and make an ass of yourself, which is what they want. Just ignore it and they'll get bored and stop.

Because people suck, simple as that. I get a lot of crap for having a southern accent, and it's not even that pronounced. But, I'm still a dumb hick who screws his sister according to some players. You just have to take it in stride. Just think, that's probably the highlight of their day, getting on live and harassing people. Kinda sad. I never use a mic anymore unless I'm in a party with friends.
I don't recall this being an issue when Live first came out. Back in the day of Crimson Skies and such, @ssholes were few and far between. Guess it was because it was so new and everyone just got a kick out of playing online with thousands of people from the comfort of their own home. Now everybody has to dominate every single match or send a steady stream of insults towards other players to have a good time. I miss the old days.
