"its a random mix of first names and last names."


"in fact, these names were solidified in-game before the Trayvon Martin incident.


So, which is it? Were the names set and solidified in the game before the incident happened, or are they randomly generated?


The things you quoted aren't mutually exclusive.

The bank of names could have been set before the incident. Not sure how a similar looking name has anything to do with Trayvon Martin. This isn't even "overly sensitive" it's just ridiculous.


Okay so, neither of you get it. The names are randomly generated early in development and solidified then. Which, for the time Watch_Dogs has been in development, is quite a bit before the Trayvon incident


That's literally the same thing I said

This is about as racist as calling an African-american male a "black dude"


Out of interest: what do Americans call black people who are not American?

Or what about Americans with African ancestry who are not actually black? Could a white guy still be an African-American?

Seems like the whole African-American thing is a political correctness term that doesn't make much sense. At least to me who isn't from America.

For the guy who is ignorant and says nobody named kavon exists, and says it's not pronounced the way it is:
My cousins name is indeed kavon
His name is in fact pronounced kay-vawn

Can people stop posting in this, or mods get on top of it since you enjoy moderating stupid inconsequential nonsense, but won't mod this disturbance...? It's just making everyone look dumb...

According to political correctness, the son or daughter of a white (caucasian, ok?) south african immigrant is NOT an african american, because if he is white, political correctnes considers him "normal".

The reason for this is because political correctness was invented by racist white dudes trying to create a language code through which they could continue to be biggots while avoiding being perceived as such.

If anyone is interested in more lectures in political science and sociology, feel free to DM me. (not true, please don't)

Step out of the intellectual shallow pool, I think you're drowning.
