    I just found a new game called "Crazy Grandpa" on the Android Market that seems to be racist.
    The game is this old white man in Japan or China whose sole purpose is to go around and fight people. The only problem is, all the characters are either Asian or Black.
    If anyone has a phone and the time, check it out and let me know I'm not crazy myself.
    I have filed an objection with them as it being abusive content.

    It would probably be best if I were to answer why I think "This" game is racist. Personally, my definition does not include blacks being racist, and that's bound to open up a can of worms that has been done a few times here.:10200:
    On my phone, the crazy grandpa looks to be white. The people he is going around beating up are of color, with an unusual amount of them being darker color.
    A white man going around beating up blacks & asians, to me, seems to be racist.
    Now, I could be wrong, as I have been many of times (according to my wife). My phone is rooted, and has a custom rom installed. It also has just about every setting & option adjusted to my personal tastes, including the color, contrast, brightness, etc. There is noting stock about it. But I did use my wife's phone to play the game, and the man does appear to be abit darker than on my phone. So there is a chance that I am not seeing the colors as they were meant to be represented.
    But racism is the ability of others to not only oppress others of color, but to actually do so, keeping the oppressed ones from their God-given right to exist the way they see fit. To prevent them form growing, learning & living their own lives, their own way.
    But then again

    I'm sorry, I made a mistake. The actual name of the game is "Crazy Old Man". Crazy Grandpa is another game. I got it confused because in the game, he's called Crazy Grandpa.
    Anyway, check it out and tell me what you think. I may be overreacting, but then again, it just hits something in me that is not right even though he's not as white as I first thought.
