Why is there such as lack of Jews/Jewish culture in videogames?

Yeah, I'm proud he deleted that post. Don't take victimhood of supremacy into supremacy. Or you'll become what you profess to detest. Case in point, saying one ethnicity is more talented than this or that.

Uh, slow your roll there partner, there is a huge different between what happened to Jews and African, like the stripping of culture, language, religion, and everything that was who they were. Jews still have their cultural heritages and languages plus religion. African do not have that as they have been stripped of it during slavery. Also during slavery, all of Africa's strongest workers and intelligence people were enslaved and brought to the Americas leaving behind a continent of suffering. I'm not black, just a history fanatic.

You do realize there are still Africans in Africa who still have the same language, culture and religion there now as they did 300 years ago, right?


You do realize that these very Africans are being murdered, killed and burned alive for using there ancient languages, cultures, and religions right? Have you ever lived in Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, or Somalia? Well I have and seen things that would make you proud to be able to live in freedom.

If you believe in Pikachu, have accepted him as a cute lord and savior, and are 100% proud of it, put this in your sig.

"We are the most talented people on the planet."

Really? This is the kind of snobby elitism which annoys people. Feel free to back up that statement with some examples.

Talented people are found among all races/cultures. Just belonging to a particular group doesn't make one superior to or inferior to another.

AND I was agreeing with what I quoted. does that not make sense to you

It's funny you think things need to be proportioned in life. What is this, kindergarten?


Uh...? I don't know what you're talking about.


jewish characters shouldn't be crammed into games just for the sake of representation. that's called "tokenism" and it's just as offensive as racism.

Probably because Jews comprise about 0.2% of the world's population and less than 2% of the US population... not exactly a big target audience.
