Even if something is racist, I do not care in the least.

Oh god, politics on the 360 board, here we go. -_-

Punch Out was more racist. I dunno, though. Dahlsim is kinda racist looking, I guess.

Lakitu is a jerk. He lives in a cloud and throws AIDS at decent, hardworking Americans.

Why is dhalsim racist. He looks about on par with Indian yoga masters sans the monkey skulls around their necks:

the writer was just a nitpicking douchebag

We live in a world where Custer's Revenge exists. SF2 is only the most racist game ever if you only do two minutes of research.

Damned if you do. Damned if you don't.

I guess he never played Custer's Revenge if he thinks SF2 is the most racist game ever.

Everyone loves to vaunt how morally superior they are, yet on some level everyone has prejudices. Its just more hypocrisy; most of the people who are the loudest about racism and stereotypes are the biggest bigots themselves.

The writer of the article is black, he has a long history of writing pro-black anti-everything else pieces on whatever pisses him off the most at the moment. He's just a few inches short of Militant Black Power.

The writer is FAR more racist than any character in the game because all he does is look for even the slightest hint of impropriety and blasts it way out of proportion.

It's pretty convenient that you would write such a thing and hate on Obama wanting to make everyone of what ever ethnicity equal and have equal rights.

Are you by any chance from the south?
