Black females are 6.5% of US population. 90% of artistic representation.

These are just from the past few days' worth of announcements off the top of my head, three of them just yesterday lol.

Not to mention Quantum League, which was reviewed today and has THREE black women on the cover! (granted it's clones, but still).

Image

The worst of it is that they make not the slightest attempt to make these females attractive. If they looked like Tyra Banks or Chaka T I would honestly not bother complaining, but most of these designs are hideous (the Quantum League one above is the exception, and even that's just mediocre). Can we have back our bald space marines please? I bet even BLACK GUYS are against this shit! Who the fuck are you trying to please for fuck's sake?! These devs are being so transparently stupid I'm embarrassed for their sake! How about some actual novelty like a Native American woman, huh? Ever thought of those?! I better not go giving them ideas I guess.

Black female starring in the first PS5 ad (leaked from PlayStation Hungary's YouTube channel; reupload could be taken down soon): https://twitter.com/AllGamesDelta_/stat ... 4961546240

First PS5 Ad ~ "Welcome to a New World of Immersion"

At least she isn't that bad-looking.

It doesn't get any woker than black female, unless she's a tranny too. Hard to signal that though unless they start zooming in on penis bulges or something (or penis gashes, if it's post-op).

I wonder if they'll run this ad in Japan too, and Asia in general. I can't imagine them doing it.

I still believe we should have Eskimos everywhere, more than any other race.

I am going to rename this thread to blackwashing or something.

Crappy live action Elden Ring trailer starring crap black actor who doesn’t belong: https://youtu.be/9xtSrbs1mHc

I love it when bad black actors are randomly inserted into games to lecture me about the power of the mind.

Someone in the comments says that it sounds more like a Call of Duty trailer than Elden Ring.

You think maybe this is GRRM’s contribution to the game lol.

One guy in the comments says “lawd dem elden rangz” and YT put beneath it “Translate into English” lmao. Pretty much all the comments are negative. I bet anything you want this isn’t pushed in Japan.

Skull & Bones is finally about to be released, and these are the only character designs offered in the game's screenshots on Epic: https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/skull-and-bones

Zero character, intelligence and charm. Zero beauty too. They turned even the Asian into an African.

Keep your African games.
