I'm pretty sure you all saw this video.
But have you read the comments that followed? Racist people have flocked out the wazoo to cast blame on the black community for the fault of three robbers. Wow. First, you think you can come to YouTube to watch a funny video then you find out you have to wade threw an ocean of racism. I have no idea where these people are getting it from. The men in the video aren't even black. They're traditionally Hawaiian. His name alone should give up his origin. But then again some people still think its 1813. And me being African-American myself it does hurt to see the N word being used offensively.
But I can't let it get me down. So heres what I did. I thought up of two games, and I have inferred some beliefs onto the characters as a joke. If some how racism can be applied to a video about the attempted robbery of a DS then I'm sure discrimination, anarchism and drugs can be applied to actual games.
God of War
Is Kratos atheist? He doesn't worship the Gods, since he killed them anyway. So does that mean he praises no higher power?
Is Kratos on steroids? He seems pretty angry all the time. And he is very muscular and very angry. Maybe he is having temper tantrums from all the bull supplement he has injected into his nads.
Is Kratos metro-sexual? He has sex with women, but he does wear a fabulous skirt. Hm..... I say yes.
Is Cole racist? From what I understand The Reapers are supposed to be Hispanic.
Is Cole discriminant against the poor? Instead of shooting the Dustmen with lightning how about you give em some cash, sparky? It seems to me if your a homeless person Cole will rain ho,t burning, death upon you. How dare you not have a home!
Is Cole an Anarchist? The First Sons pretty much ran Pacific City after the Ray Sphere incident. They acted as a government system in a way. Does Cole hate the government? I think so.
Thinking this way when it comes to gaming is a little odd and at times funny, in a dark sense, yet it's all I can do to take something terrible and transform it into something relatively positive.
Hold it, I thought of one more.
Gears of War
Well it's not technically racist, but there aren't enough black people in it. I'm happy with Coltrane and his "in your face" attitude, and I'm happy with the fact that he isn't dead yet. But, I would be even happier if the series had more black characters. Oh, wait, Ice Tea is voicing someone in the third installment. SWEEEET!!!! :) Never mind then. Gears is pure in my book.
