I never understood the watermelon and friend chicken stereotype about black people.
I don't know, nor do I WANT to know, a single soul who doesn't like watermelon and friend chicken.

This clip is stupid though. There are much more clever ways to be racist in this game.
Tuan Jim
prove your last assertion.

History answer: Fried chicken and watermelon were southern staples. After the abolition of slavery, black people wanted to get the hell out of the south. They came north and brought their food prefs with them.

So really, it was "southerners like fried chicken and watermelon", but most of the southerners migrating north were black. So we have what we've got here.

Cross the mason-dixon line and everyone eats it though.

BOOSH
did you even watch it

badideasinaction
Yes I did. I also have the game, though I haven't tried this.

Note: you can create buildings and fill them with whoever you want, and when you click on them they all pop out.

Show me a video where he creates a prison, then immediately activates it and black people pop out and I'll be shocked. It's sad I have to explain a trick this simple to you.

THA SUGAH RAIN
I think youre all missing the point where this is a clip of black people jumping out of a prison bouncing basketballs.
badideasinaction
And once again, you missed the part in the game where you can fill buildings with whoever you want.

THA SUGAH RAIN
I dont pretend to know anything about this game.

zatojones
Waiting to hear the explanation of this like they had for the "Sambo" thing
badideasinaction
You mean the fact you can create a prison, then create basketball players and put them in the prison? You could also fill it with professors, firemen, teachers etc.

Haven't tried this at home but assuming the developers weren't that stupid you can set this up yourself.

BOOSH
do you work for nintendo or something

twinkieafternoon
Wait, so you're telling us you can create a building and then fill it with anything you want? Awesome!

I'm gonna fill a jail with basketball players!

stars for twinkie

No BOOSH I work for the department of grudgingly pointing out obvious stuff that people should be able to figure out on their own but can't. It's a sub-department of the ministry of sarcasm.

I haven't played but I am guessing also that any person of any race will want food no matter what it is if you conjure it up

Torture the Artist
Could you transfer to the Office Of Shutting The Fuck Up?

We all get it.

I haven't owned a Game Boy since their screens were black and white and I get it.

Shut up.

Still funny though.

Why is that one "basketball player" on the left ripped and in a speedo?
Caminante Nocturno
He is in prison because it's illegal to be muscular and in a speedo while playing basketball. The other basketball players are in prison for being accessories to muscleman's crime.

Boxhead
Yes, REALLY, they designed a game that has hundreds of thousands of objects that have pre-designed interactions and didn't try and think of every possible way they would interact in a manner that might have a negative connotation and forestall them.

Also, REALLY, there are people that would play the game and try to create interactions that have negative connotations.

finally, REALLY, you can create a video and stick it on you-tube that might not have the full story either before and after.

P.S. you can make black people eat watermelons and fried chicken in Garry's Mod. Let's get after Valve.


fluffy
Agreed.

It's actually more like millions of possible interactions - there are reportedly 20,000 nouns in the game and so even if you only look at two-item interactions that's already 400,000,000 possible pairings, which I think is safe to say more than any single person can ever see in their lifetime.

Kinda surprised that someone who makes racist cartoons with a child's toy is able to capture the video and sound, trim it and upload it to YouTube.
Toenails
Who cares whether or not the game was made with racist intentions or if the player sets it up so it looks that way.

5 stars for the fact that video has already started a flame-war. Imagine if it gets out on an actual news channel.
Jeff Fries
Oops they didn't race-proof their game. Well I hope they all enjoy burning in hell.
keinsignal
still not as funny as the one where Maxwell gives a bunch of mexicans swine flu.
