Okay but like, racism still exist in the Overwatch universe, not in the form of robo oppression but in the form of the back stories of some of the non-white characters.
From Lucios story and what vishkar did to the favelas, to a white blonde getting a promotion instead of the afrolatino man who deserved it as much if not more. Or a Maori man from NZ living in the Australian Outback being displaced from his home by the government… Intentional or not, OW has given us better narratives of racism more relatable to real life than the mess that is the whole “robo-racism”.
Like for starters calling the anti-omnic bigotry “racism” is such a trivialization of racism and can’t be compared. Torb, Zarya and the Junkers all have reasons to hate Omnics, the bots started a war and a genocide, it personally affected every antiomnic character, yeah some of them can be too extreme with their hate, but outside of some insults can you even blame them? Whom lose their family in war?.
Listen, in real life no mestizo, nor black nor Maori person have power over white people. Is a bad and stupid comparassion, those whom hate PoC think of us as inferior and the only thing we did to be treated poorly is *exist*, Omnics were more powerful than humans and started a war, repeating myself.
Can we please, for the love of everything, stop calling this mess of “”“ omnicphobia”“” racism or comparing to it, especially if you’re white.
The omnic explosion never happened, yet the thousands of displaced people who lost their homes due to the governments so called peace treaty are pissed off and making their presence known. In the depths of the outback, people called the Junkers have created their own cutthroat society. Mako is a ruthless, outlaw biker who has lost everything after his home, family and farm were taken from him. Now he is out to regain his land and put anyone who gets in his way six feet under. Junkrat is a junkyard owner and grease monkey, selling parts and scrap to make a living.
This stunning aerial shot is of Lake Frome, a salt lake located East of the Northern Flinders ranges in South Australia. The lake is a closed system (endorheic), also known as a salt pan and is 100km long and 40km wide, and mostly below sea level. The lake fills only rarely and from water that flows down creeks in the Flinders ranges from the West (these creeks are also usually dry), or from Strzelecki Creek in the North if there are exceptional flows along this creek.
