my cake, fuck off
God I hope they don't cut the lolis.
But then it'd be cultural appropriation to be a white guy or any non-black person in an all black gang.
Make CJ a white guy because a black guy in the hood is stereotypical and therefor racist.
I think the term is "digital blackface".I obviously shouldn't be playing as a person of color in a video game because i'm basically doing black face and culturally appropriating black gang culture for my own entertainment.
Also, "follow the damn car CJ" is inherently a racist line of dialogue in the game because of it's connotations to how slave masters would speak. The fact that it was said by Big Smoke only validates that Big Smoke is a victim of marginalization and oppression as he is depicted as being out-of-touch with his inner blackness as he forces his fellow men to follow a damn train.
Also, dating in the game? Yeah. Cut that out too because it obviously permeates the socio-hierarchy structure of a male dominated world where a man has to pick up a woman, and take her to places, for the promise of sex. Ugh. Sexist much?
Also, strip clubs. If there isn't a transwoman dancing, it isn't an accurate depiction of reality and should be labeled immediately as transphobic as the game pretends like trans people don't exist.
Actually, let's just cancel the release and just give our heartwarming cards to our fellow marginalized populations to tell them we care about their feelings. That sounds better.
The confederate flag is being cut because of what it symbolizes. However, there is also way more offensive content that can have a negative influence in the current year and needs to be cut before the games are released.
Soundtracks: There are many offensive songs on the soundtracks that include racial slurs and glorify gang violence. The rock and roll should also be cut because it can be considered satanic. All of it should go and be replaced with less problematic modern artists like Lil Nas X and Ariana Grande.
Gangs: All gang references should be cut. Gangs are a serious problem today and this stuff might influence impressionable people to join a gang.
Violence: Many people have been victims of violence. The guns and violence in general should be taken out of these games. Especially since many racist groups such as the Confederate Army used guns and violence to get their points across in the past.
Traffic laws: Many people have become disabled due to bad drivers who don't follow traffic laws. The traffic laws need to be enforced in this game.
Rockstar Games: The name itself is offensive. No one listens to rock anymore but back in the day rockstars were known to be toxic male misogynists which is not acceptable for modern audiences.
Cops: They should be replaced with community workers and therapists in these games.
What else needs to be changed before these games are released so that these are acceptable for modern audiences? I am proud of Rockstar because removing the confederate flag on the dumb redneck character's shirt is a good start but they have much work to do.
I also love how dramatic people can get ... like seeing a confederate flag and treat it like a nazi flag, even go to the lengths of searching for this things in a source code for woke points.I love how dramatic people can get...like they cut the confederate flag...im sure thatll massively change your experience.
You could probably use the exact same berating for those who were offended by it and decided it should be taken out… let’s try it;I love how dramatic people can get...like they cut the confederate flag...im sure thatll massively change your experience.
I haven't seen one person ever complain about a flag in GTA...this is a rockstar decision...who cares. It doesn't change the game.You could probably use the exact same berating for those who were offended by it and decided it should be taken out… let’s try it;
“I love how dramatic people can get...like there’s the confederate flag on a peripheral character’s shirt… im sure thatll massively change your experience.”
Yep, overreactive snowflakes round the table.
You saying the confederate flag should be treated as better than a Nazi flag? As if the confederates were far better. Well then...about the game the experience doesn't change based on its removal.I also love how dramatic people can get ... like seeing a confederate flag and treat it like a nazi flag, even go to the lengths of searching for this things in a source code for woke points.
