Just chiming in to say: You can still enjoy something while trash talking or critiquing its creator(s).

I've come to kill your bandwidth with these big ass AC Origins screenshots that I took
An example of such is H. P. Lovecraft; you can enjoy his work and admire his writing style, but his work contains various racist elements and you can critique his work for containing them, or the creator themselves.

That's always a choice but I'm not keen on praising racists' work in any capacity.

Still not surprised so many white folks love name dropping Lovecraft.

Fair enough, I prob. should've used a video game example ^^;

Tizoc you didn't see anything wrong with Star and Eclipsa letting the bigoted villain go?
You mean
Queen Moon or Mina? ...or both? Yeah Mina's a mental case and they really should've locked her up or something. Various animated series lately do the 'forgive the comical villain' aspect but in this case they really shouldn't let her go esp. after all the chaos she could've done when she got magical weaponry.
If anything, they likely saw that her antics would be, what wethe viewers would describe as comical annoyances, but yeah, again, they should've locked her up.
Queen Moon was thirsty AND salty she lost her queendom, Star should've at least slapped her when it was over to remind her she dun fucked up.

You sit here on this American culture centered forum that has racial discussion threads on both Gaming and OT and you still don't know basic fucking stereotypes against black people and get all mad after derailing the thread with easily Google-able questions? Fuck outta here.

Why is Xavier Woods the only black dude on most of these gaming podcasts? Between Easy Allies, Kinda Funny, IGN, etc none of these dudes have a black friend who can comfortably talk about gaming in front of a camera? Fuck's sake.

That would first require them to have a black friend in the first place.

I got used to seeing 10+ white gamers running stuff per platform/site/podcast with no black people
Funhaus,4 Player podcast,Easy Allies, Kinda Funny, IGN
You would think after the 7th they would consider a minority for once


I'm glad Jan got added into giantbomb after Austin left
