little black girl: FightinCowboy RewTIN Cefoy @Fightincowboy So lately there's been a lot of fuss over gaming "forcing diversity" and people getting upset that a character is gay, trans, etc. and I want to take a moment and try to explain this to folks that are having trouble understanding the issue, as a straight white dude myself. 3:13 AM 10 Feb 19 from Nashville, TN Twitter for Android 48 Retweets 243 Likes FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h As a straight white dude my whole life has been filled with cool white dudes in gaming and comics. Iron Man, He-Man, Spiderman, Cloud, you get the idea. There's literally a million different choices you could pick from and think "oh I want to be like them, I can ANTIN Cooy relate to them". ti 3 92 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h And now we're seeing more women, more people of color, more people of varying sexual orientations, and dudes are asking "Why does my character have to be gay?", "I like this character but why do I have to play as a black girl? ANTIN CofoBoy 9 1 ti 3 91 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h And to be honest, y'all been playing as the "straight white dude for so long you're treating that as the default setting in life. But that's not true. The world isn't made of RNTIN CopOBoY nothing but straight white dudes. There's billions of different people out there. 1 ti 6 112 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h And you'll say well why does my character have to be gay, it doesn't matter to the gameplay" and you're right, it doesn't, so why the fuck do you care? Playing as a gay character doesn't mean cocks start para- dropping into your room to assault you ANTIN cofeo 3 ti 12 129 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h But to that 13 yr old kid that's gay and still in the closet, he suddenly has a role model. He has someone he can relate to the same way you looked up to Tony Stark or Mario or whoever. That little black girl who was too shy of gaming has a character she sees herself in AANTIN Cojso 9 1 t 10 150 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h The point is while it might not impact the gameplay AT ALL, it's not hurting you and it's potentially helping someone else. And if you still disagree with that, then the real problem is just that you're an asshole. AeNTIN Cofeso 21 ti 13 242

People keep telling me to stop talking about racism, because I might incite a race war... Are you smoking crack? America has been in a race war for hundreds of years... America was built on a race war. Let's deal with facts. All attempts at black people trying to empower themselves, have been sabotaged. Look at black walls street. Black people building communities and businesses that benefited their communities, what did the white supremacists do... Blew it up. There was a back to Africa self sustainable movement called "Move" in the 1980s... What did the Philadelphia police department do... Blew them up, then shot and killed men, women and children as they fled the burning building. The terrorist attack on the church in Birmingham in 1963, where four little black girls were blown up by white supremacist terrorists. Martin Luther King was assassinated by the U.S. Government. The police kill hundreds of black people every year. Brutalising the peaceful protests and infiltrating the movements for justice... Starting riots. Check out cointelpro No it's not the race card. The "justice" system The Schools The prisons The senior board level of any major company is all white. The frequent racial discrimination in the media. Tulsa Oklahoma Tuskegee experiments Filling the hoods with crack and guns. Building railroads and freeways over the hoods so no business passes through there. If you are more annoyed about this post, than you are about the racism that you are trying to pretend that doesn't exist... You are part of the problem. There is clearly already a race war, there are over 200 white supremacist organisations in America. Burning down black churches, committing hate crimes. The only question is black America going to defend themselves? Or would you rather let them commit your suicide. chakabars: THOSE WHO LOVE PEACEMUST LEARN TO ORGANIZE AS EFFECTIVELY AS THOSE WHO LOVE WAR MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR BENEDICT Stereo 77' :DRINKRE m FRESH -IN ly People keep telling me to stop talking about racism, because I might incite a race war...
