What does he have to do with gaming exactly. That's just his moronic racist views outside of his job.

America being 'diverse' isn't an excuse for mass immigration to go on unchecked.
Japan was once 'diverse' in that other ethnic groups lived on the island. They were enslaved, killed off and out bred by what we call the modern Japanese. China has a diverse population as well. Yet is plagued with ethnic violence.
I know about Georgia. I live here. There are talks from black extremist groups about creating a 'black nation within a nation' here in the south.



im certain that's something you read off of Beirtbart or the national enquirer. as a black guy who have many other black friends, i know a couple who talk alot about race, and even the most racist of them have never said anything like that. if you did hear it it probably some gang talk.

and "Mass immigration" has always happened in the US. theres a good chance that, unless you were part of the .9% of the native population, that you or your relatives were immigrated, forced, or annexed into the US. we cant, nor wont close our doors to people. thats the reason trumps bans keep getting thrown out of court.

in the end of the day, the US isn't Japan.


Trying to put Beirtbart into the same category as the National Enquirer is rather laughable; Beirtbart is no less reliable than Huffington Post and the like. They have a political slant and frame things to better fit their opinion, but they are hardly a the level of the National Enquirer.

Amyas_Leigh said extremist groups, not every member of the race. It is not hard to search and find such groups who do in fact espouse such ideas.

There is no native population of the Americas, they all migrated here at some time or another.

Trumps bans keep getting put on a temporary hold because Judges are ignoring their duties as Judges which is to use the law that exists to decide if the actions are within his powers (which they are) and that the order as written does not violate any constitutional rights (which they have not in either order), but instead of doing that they choose to make believe that the orders say mean something different from which they are written by cherry picking statements used during the 2016 campaign to claim that the order is banning a religion. Also, both of Trumps' Executive Orders in this area have used the same language as Obama's immigration ban against the same exact countries as included in the first Trump Order with the exception that the Trump Order is only stated to last half as long as the Obama Order. Additionally, there have been multiple other previous presidents who did similar bans throughout the history of our country as well. So the reason that these Trump EOs keep getting stayed is based solely on the political beliefs of the Judges in question and in no way on the applicable laws and acts.

The Constitution of the United States of America states that Congress shall make laws governing the Rule of Naturalization which immigration falls under. Congress has made laws which give the President the right to temporarily limit or prevent the people from entering the country as the President deems necessary. So since this is the USA and not Japan, these are the laws that matter not what anyone thinks someone really means even though something completely different is written.

What a moron" W white person called a racist is the closest they will ever get to being called nigger" uhhh no the term "cracker" is a thing. People just don't talk about it as much because that would generally mean accepting that black people can be racist.


But seriously people like this are one of the greatest problems with modern society. They make everything about "Us and them" and paint the world in black and white where one side is the incarnation of evil.

Do these morons think they are helping? That this will somehow reduce racism or make everyone more equal?

Here is a reality check no genuinely racist person gives a shit about the feelings of the race he is racist against. No actual white supremist will go "Oh I am so sorry. I have no idea my view and words offended you. Here lets get a drink white we talk about how equal we all are". These people are fully aware of what they are doing.

So constantly treating the rest of us like shit for what the worst of us do isn't makings things better. It's just pissing people like me off because we're getting treated like shit for stuff we didn't even do just because of the color of our skin. Gee now where does that sound familiar.

I think the guy basically has racism against Caucasians, to say the least.

I would argue that this doesn't constitute "racism in gaming". Take into consideration the whole "Gamergate" phenomenon, where it was a slew of sexism based off of how people perceive women who are developers - then compare that tragedy against this singular person who's had a contract with a popular gaming studio. To be fair, his remarks are pretty much identical to Amyas_Leigh's remarks, just polarized (figuratively speaking). It would be like citing that there's a "racism issue in Crunchyroll" because of one user.

I think stretching a small minority of people to be impacting the overall quality of a game is a bit much. The industry has had (and continues to have) issues with sexism; mostly in part due to assumptions made of women in that field (by those who aren't in that field at all, especially).

He seems to be a very insecure person. Notice the tough guy persona he's trying to put on. That's usually a dead giveaway for an insecure personality with self esteem issues. He's trying to project his own insecurities on others and also failing to project the strength which he really does not have.

A wise man with strong convictions needs not prove their point of view to anyone nor explain them.

Personally I also find this to be a very poor argument for racism in the gaming industry. One douchebag does not set the golden standard. If you look hard enough and twist things far enough then you can find evidence to support any claim you may want to make regardless of the veracity of that claim.

One idiot does not make an entire industry Racist. He almost certainly is. You think he'd be ranting like this in the Japanese Game industry? He'd be railing against the 'dominance' of japanese over there. He's a complainer, not a visionary.

No no trailer parks have people of all colors and faiths, but it's nice to have your family close right?

That article is just one man rambling, hardly proof of your crazy assertion.

Not everyone who lives in a trailer park are inbreds. I had a friend who lived in a trailer park, not one person there was a inbred, Just putting this out there since what you're trying to say is that people who live in trailer parks are inbreds. If that's what you meant, you really are low.

I don't understand what the second part has to do with the first. Do you mean large families live in trailer parks or is that supposed to be a jab at the 'lol south is inbred' meme? If the latter, I implore you to google 'map of consanguineous marriages'

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_New_Afrika
Didn't realize it was such an old idea. But yeah all you had to do was google.

The Republic of New Afrika (RNA) was founded in 1968 as an American social movement based in Black Nationalism; it had three goals:

Creation of an independent African-American-majority country situated in the southeastern United States, in the heart of an area of black-majority population.

I would never make such a claim, I just mean it's nice to be close to family.

Some guy basically writes a history piece about an idea from the Civil Rights movement (1968 talk about relevant), and in your thirst for anti-black propaganda you use it to claim tons of black extremist groups in the south want to form their own nation? He didn't even name any groups, so you are stretching this so hard I don't know what to think. If it were anyone else, I'd be disappointed but you've proved time and time again you'll use anything you can to further your racist agenda.

Did we read the same article?

Is it Time for Black People to Reconsider a Black Nation Within a Nation and Armed Self-Defense?



In light of the racial violence facing African-Americans — as was most recently seen in the killing of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile by police officers in Baton Rouge and outside Minneapolis — voices in the Black community are once again calling for the establishment of a Black nation within a nation, and Black gun ownership. Neither idea is new, but both are gaining interest and are on the radar screen.



Today, there are renewed calls for a Black-controlled land in those five Southern states.



“What we are wanting to do is to have Black people start migrating back to these states. If we migrate 40 million Black people back to these sates, we can control the economy, the education and the politics of these states, and we can do this without the need to fire one bullet,” said Omowale. “And once Black people move in, white people will move out.”



]The concept of forming a Black nation within a nation is feasible, according to Christian Davenport, Professor of Political Science & Faculty Associate with the Center for Political Studies at the University of Michigan. “Actually, I think that it is fairly easily for African-Americans to form a Black nation within the United States. There are large sections of the United States that have nothing but Black people in them already. There are cults and militias as well as private corporations that do whatever they want behind their closed doors,” Davenport, also the author of How Social Movements Die: Repression and Demobilization of the Republic of New Africa (Cambridge University, 2015), told Atlanta Black Star.


'history piece'

Did you google that map yet btw? Its interesting stuff.

Your words. I simply said 'talks from black extremist groups' not 'tons' or that they were specifically from the south. Majority of Nation of Islam types I spy on Facebook that talk about this kind of thing aren't even in the south in the first place.
