It's hard being a straight, white, cissexual male.


What is so hard about it?

Remember when the Spawn film came out in the mid 90s and two of the primary characters were turned into White people because of the fear that White audiences would think of Spawn as a "Black movie"?



Nope.

Michael Jai White ... Al Simmons / Spawn

I saw that mess of a movie, and Spawn was still a black dude.
The rest of your examples, I'll give ya, but damn dude.

This reverse racism is pissing me off.

Don't just assume all whites have it easy.. and stop whining about crap.

Yes, your racism disgusts me tc. Affirmative action has even infected games. It makes me sick. Remember Me is clearly a white role, and more qualified characters were overlooked because of political correctness. Malcolm Luther King Sr is spinning in his grave, this wasn't what he fought the civil war for.

These are video games, not legitimate issues facing the world. If you feel this passionate over something so insignificant, perhaps you could focus your collective energies on something... useful?

Wanting to support a video game solely because of the race of its protagonist does actually make you a racist. It's not complex.

I do want to be clear here though. We're all racist to some extent and that's okay. For example, I think black people are better basketball players. It's racist, yes, but it's not hateful. And I don't think you're supporting this game because you hate all other races. Well, I hope not anyways. I wouldn't mind playing a game with a black female lead myself.

Racism is discriminatory practice based upon the idea of racial superiority. That is, discriminatory to an oppressive extent. You aren't discriminating against anyone by believing Blacks to be superior at basketball. It is ignorant and stereotypical, but not racist.
