Why We Should Care - 'Racism and Sexism in Games', Pt 2 of 2

In the second part of the two part interview with Ragnhild Mogren, teacher at Stockholm University, discusses why the message games send out are important to our culture, and touch on racism and gender issues with Resident Evil 5 and Grand Theft Auto IV as backdrops.

The story is too old to be commented.

Games have nothing to do with someone being racist.. It's the parents fault for raising them that way. The only thing it can do, however, is teach a young kid to start using racial terms.

A thing of the Past? HA! You have got to be kidding me. Racism is NOT a thing of the past, unfortunately.

Oh my god, will these people just drop this sh*t.

I heard a black guy the other day say:

"Why the f*ck we got all deez niggas talkin' 'bout slavery and struggle and sh*t? That sh*t was 150 years ago! Can't niggas just move the f*ck on? It's a different world now, man!"

I almost jumped for joy when I heard him say that.

Why can't people just get on with life, instead of carrying with them some generational grudge that they were never a part of? They didn't deal with it then, because they weren't even alive, so what gives you the right to continue it now?

The audacity people have nowadays to have this generational grudge sh*t as an excuse to treat people like sh*t, and act like a victim at the same time, is a f*ckin joke.

Be an individual. Don't let the grudges and struggles of the few and the past determine your attitudes towards others and the future.

That's my two cents on the issue.

I agree with the not talking about slavery stuff, but there's other issues on how people don't get opportunities because of their race. It's a complicated problem really, and both sides are to blame.
