I am sure that David T. Chang can go to a Klan website and find gookopoly or chinkopoly. I am sure people of Asian descent would be offended by such a game, although no one would hear any protest of outrage about it; all the other minorities leave that to us and after social change has come about because of all the outrage and hell that black people in this country have raised, then the other minorities step in or step up to a place that has been made by others.

This came from a florida news paper in response to NAACP rally call to action. Hasbro has the right to sue Chang for the damage it caused to its '...opoly' name,[apparently they have a monopoly on opoly in the game biz ]. Futhermore, if Chang is somewhat connected to Hasbro, even if they use the same printer, there appears to be some form of collusion, association, defacto permission, if you will. That is why I have contacted Hasbro and asked them to file suit against Gettopoly forthwith.
