Reply to "Ghettopoly"

I have to say, I am not offended by this game. I would not give some piece of cardboard that much power. If you look at the game, he has alot of things that are in the ghetto on the board. There is always a liquor store in the ghetto. There are drug dealers in the hood. I think the problem some people have is that the game isn't falsifying facts. He didn't make these things up, he definitely took alot of license with somethings, so what? Is that what defines a race? It is just a game.
That game doesn't bring new racism to light, it reminds us of current racism and sexism. It talks about pipms and hoes, we call our women hoes and being a pimp is a great thing these days (look at 50 cent & Snoop). All of a sudden, he's the enemy? We need to sneak up on a mirror, then we'll see the enemy.
End of the day, that taiwanese businessman is out for cash. When people don't buy the game, he'll stop. He's no racist, he said he's going to do other games like Redneckopoly. We need to realize a few things. He is reminding us pf issues that already exist. We take care of our problems and that game won't exist.
