Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled skin renamed to be less racially insensitive

For the first Grand Prix season in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, Tawna and her “Watermelon Tawna” skin were added. Players quickly took issue with the name. Because of her darker fur and watermelon shirt, many people felt that this was racially insensitive.

Activision and Beenox have since taken action. The skin has since been changed to Summertime Tawna along with a few others. “White Tawna” is now known as “White Tiger Tawna”, for instance. A number of other skins with “Black” or “White” in front of them have also been given a slight change such as “Black N. Tropy” and “Black Zem”.

Probleme gibts, die gibts gar nicht.

Ich werde diesen BS nie verstehen. Leute, welche in diesem Zusammenhang Rasissmus wahrnehmen sind die eigentlichen Rassisten. Noch weniger verstehe ich, dass Publisher und Entwickler immer gleich den Schwanz einziehen wegen ein paar wenigen SJWs.

Es gibt wohl ein Klischee, das schwarze ganz besonders auf Wassermelonen stehen ... Wie so ziemlich der Rest der Welt, aber das nur nebenbei.
Es ist mehr als ein Klischee, weil es stereotypisiert wird.

Da reicht es die Smashdebatte zu zitieren was am Sachverhalt Gaga ist.

Das T-Shirt mit dem Motiv Wassermelone kann sowohl mit hellem als auch mit dunklem FELL vorkommen.

Ich glaube die Kritiker dieser Darstellungen merken noch nicht mal, dass sie nach jeder Definition von „Rassismus“ die eigentlichen Rassisten sind.

"We must stop the glorification of violence in our society," Trump said in remarks from the White House Monday morning as part of a list of efforts he believes the nation must take. "This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace."
He added, "It is too easy today for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately."
Trump did not mention specific measures to limit access to firearms except proposing "red flag" laws that would prevent access to people who are mentally ill.
McCarthy, a California Republican, also cited video games as a driver behind gun violence in an interview with Fox News on Sunday.
"But the idea of these video games that dehumanize individuals to have a game of shooting individuals and others -- I've always felt that is a problem for future generations and others. We've watched from studies shown before of what it does to individuals. When you look at these photos of how it took place, you can see the actions within video games and others," McCarthy said.
Hillary Clinton, who unsuccessfully challenged Trump in the 2016 presidential race, dismissed video games as a possible reason for the shootings.
"People suffer from mental illness in every other country on earth; people play video games in virtually every other country on earth. The difference is the guns," she tweeted Monday afternoon.


Einer der Täter war wohl Call of Duty Fan. Mal schaun ob es irgendwann wieder verstärkte Zensur (oder Selbstzensur) bezüglich Gewalt geben wird und nicht nur bezüglich Sex.

Die Debatte wird in Videospielforen nur genauso falsch geführt wie in der Politik. Ja, ein normaler Mensch wird durch Videospiele nicht zum Massenmörder. Das ignoriert die Politik gekonnt. Aber bei einem psychisch labilen Menschen halte ich es nicht für ausgeschlossen, dass er durch die Darstellungen in Filmen oder Videospielen auf dumme Ideen kommt. Und das wird in Videospielforen gerne ignoriert.
