Street Fighter contributes to racial tension


One o’clock in the morning is what I like to call the doldrums — not exactly prime news time. Most of the traffic we get during the wee hours is for the Nerdcore posts. Go figure. Anyway, if you’re looking for a quick read to make you chuckle (wait, “chuckle”? Who says that?), check out what the guys at BubonicFist have to say about Street Fighter’s role in racial stereotyping. Guile, E. Honda, Blanka, Zangief and Dhalsim sound off on American arrogance, Soviet alcoholism, and Indian … stretchyness.
