South Park Handles Racism Brilliantly.

You might not agree with how they address it, but you have to admit it is brilliant.

(for the image above, the answer is naggers, people who nag or annoy you. obviously)

South Park is a show that has caused huge controversy many, many times, and with the release of their new game "Fractured But Whole" they took their dialogue about racism to an entirely new level.

Now for those of you who at this point are thinking that the game creators are racists - wait.


"Don't worry, this doesn't affect combat. Just every other aspect of your whole life."


the way other characters speak to you throughout the course of the game -

There is always going to be a white guy saying that he's not priviledged because he's never experienced what its like to be prematurely judged based on skin tone - so this video game will do it for them.


For any POC that feels offended by this, okay, I can see where you're coming from, but for me I think it teaches an important lesson that no matter how skilled you are, how smart you are, whatever, your will always have to fight a little bit harder when your skin is darker. Personally, I'd love it if my white friends understood that more and I think this is a rad way to get that feeling through their heads.


What do you think of this? Do you agree, or think its racist as hell?

Techie, all music, gaming, pop tart, caprisun, cocktails!
