“I always find it comical that supporting something that others have intentionally or accidentally ignored, somehow makes YOU wrong. I can sit here on name all of the games with Black lead characters on two hands and still have a finger or two left over. Naming ones which featured a Black female as the main character? I only need one hand.. and i’ll have one finger left over. Right or wrong, video games feature mostly white male characters saving the universe, cept for those games which offer you the ability to create the look and feel of your own character to control. The belief is that since mostly white male buy games, they are the ones games should be catered to. Or is it that games are mostly designed BY white males? OR is that, and I have heard this a lot by my white friends whom are authors, that you intentionally stay away from doing Black characters because anything you get ‘wrong’ is always misconstrued as you being a racist.”—Wanting to support a video game with a ‘Black’ female lead makes me a racist apparently.
This is like such a scarily accurate summary of so many of my fandom experiences that it’s unreal.
