i didnt even think about lucios skin until you pointed it out, i just thought it was cute tbh, but youre right, they dont do a lot recognising his background, while other characters get a decent bit referencing their culture. honestly tho, as a white american (and i hope this doesnt come off wrong), i dont really know much of brazilian culture other than the glorified party atmosphere america loves to portray. im curious, what kinds of homages would you like to see? what would speak to you?
It’s cute, but it’s so disrepectful bc Overwatch is just putting Lúcio as a black american and he is afro brazilian. Black people aren’t the same. Afro-americans got their own culture, music etc.
You can’t give it to an afro brazilian. Our people got their own culture and music too.
Ofc we know what Jazz is, but Brazil got a lot of music genres; Samba is popular world-wide and so is Bossa Nova. Instead of paying some homage to some brazilian musician like Tom Jobim or Cartola or even Bezerra da Silva they just keep giving Lúcio non brazilians aspects.
They could give him skins like these:
Instead of encourage foreigners to get to know about his (my) country, Overwatch is doing diservice.
