I talked to Hasbro and their legal teams are currently investigating copyright infringement. He is an immigrant from Taiwan who came to this country and saw how we tolerate mess in our communities. He then used it to exploit stereotypes and to make money. Would we be as mad if this was a Black man? If the answer is yes, then why do we tolerate disrespect of our race by our very own? Any one of you who help perpetuate stereotypes, then you can't say anything! Those who don't, continue to try to educate our sisters and brothers.
Sister Divinity ... thank you for sharing.
Sister Regina ... Welcome Home !!
Here's a little more info regarding this ...
One logical way to protest this is that All African-Americans should not ever set foot in Urban Outfitters. But, that won't happen. Why even worry about this - when we are weak?
Maybe it would have made a difference if the person who made the game was Black?
We talk about Boycott---but we have to just STOP doing some things. We complain and never ever try to make situations better-never!
That is why an Asian can do this, and we will still help the Asian community viable by living off the blood of our communities.
You know what?
I aint against this game, let it sell and sell
until we overstand how STUPID we are.
We accept mocking ourselves then when
others do it we get mad. This is a reflection of
an African American culture cos thats what it
is nothing but a Slave owners self destructive
We did this not them.
I say truthfuly the only way out
of this negative wave (which is getting worse)
is to LEAVE.
I think that time is coming.
ITS JUST TOO MUCH.
It's good to be back...still recovering from an auto accident.
I think the game is dumb....and this is what happens when we allow others to put forth who we are (or who they think we are). When you sit quiet..people do what they want. It's just that simple.

I say cause a RIOT about it...that's the only way it's gonna be taken off the market...that,or POOR SALES. I better not see ANYBODY purchasing that game,because I don't give a you-know-what WHERE WE ARE,I'M GOING TO CHECK THEM FOR OWNING SUCH OBVIOUS RACIST TRASH.
