PBS Game/Show Moves Past Simply Asking if Games Are Racist and Instead Asks Why

Please note that adding an awful stereotype character does not equal adding diversity to your game.

 

PBS Game/Show points out racism in games and asks the more important question of why games are racist. Predominantly white characters may come from demographical misconceptions and slightly lame technical issues, but there’s no excuse for the stereotype status of some racial depictions.
