Over on the Acclaim message boards, the news has popped up that in their new game, Dance! Online, you have to pay in order to have a character with black skin. Yes, you have to PAY MONEY in order to be a different race. Why? Well, let's go to coasterguy26, an "Acclaim Player Moderator" for a response.
Well, that's not helping things. Someone from Acclaim Staff chimed into all of this with what the actual situation is:
Nonetheless, this is absolutely insane that if I were to ever play this game, I would have to earn the right to be black. The problem is that there's no benefit to buying the "black outfit" for your character -- it's simply a stylistic difference. To add fuel to the fire, the game allows marriages, but as one commenter at Broken Toys points out, doesn't allow gay marriages.
