"Anglo" means "English" as in England. So some missions in COD4? SAS and all that.


An·glo
ˈaNGglō/
noun
noun: Anglo; plural noun: Anglos

1.
a white, English-speaking American as distinct from a Hispanic American.

An·glo
noun \ˈaŋ-(ˌ)glō\

: a white person who lives in the U.S. and is not Hispanic

Anglo
Pronunciation: /ˈangləʊ/
noun (plural Anglos)

1chiefly North American a white English-speaking person of British or northern European origin, in particular (in the US) as distinct from a Hispanic American or (in Canada) as distinct from a French-speaker


If even the OED (which is British/English) is calling Anglo "North American," I'm gonna say that trumps a Wikipedia entry. :P



Well ****, fair enough! This is as far as my googling went lol

No problem... I've long since figured out that googling "define ______" tends to be much more reliable, so that's what I do most of the time.

You are talking about MW2, it reeks of exceptionalism. Haven't played a cod game since.

Generally speaking, if you have to google a term to figure out what it means, you probably shouldn't be trying to correct another person's usage of the same term. In other words, if you don't know what you're talking about, that doesn't mean the other person doesn't know what he or she is talking about, either. Just saying.

As for the Angles, that term really isn't used in a contemporary context. The Angles, as a distinct ethnic group, are pretty much gone. They melted away at/after the Norman conquests (i.e. Alfred the Great).

Anyway, thanks. Modern Warfare 2 it is, then. And it's cheap. Hopefully the segment will be early enough in that I can just give it to my prof without having to teach him how to play through it for an hour or two.

I believe the on- rails section you referenced was actually in the first or second mission in the game, so you should be good there.

Anglocentric?

Well isn't that precious.?

Someone took one of those freshmen "Lets hate whitey" ethnic studies courses.


You probably think institutionalized racism doesn't exist.

lol, sounds like someone is working on their oh so useful liberal arts degree.

Oddly enough, when you play the American sections of the game, like half your squad isn't even white.

I hate CoD, but this makes me want to play it anyway.

TC is probably going to use said scene as a generalization of violence and racism in modern video games.

And probably make an (really poorly done one) argument how Amerikkka is evil.
