View Full Version : Nexon is racist?
2009-02-24, 02:45 PM
i started thinking about this when black brawlers did the barrel thing and their feet became white. And then, when i go to the 7th day market, i look at the background. There's a brown/black man driving that little boat for a white couple. What's up with nexon?

I believe that's called tourism.
Ever heard about gondolas in Venice?
(I believe I simply imploded this thread. My deepest apologies)

Gosh. Next you'll be saying how NEXON is sexist for having 5 Male NPCs yet only 3 Female ones in that scene.
Then you'll be picking at how the background is too green and may offend Autumn. :f7:

Man, wake up and smell the coffee. You realise that that would mean that Thailand was being rascist torwards themselves, since they made that area.
And the skill thing is even in KMS, as it would require another skillbook for brawlers for each skin type then.

Just as a side note: Racism would be if black characters got 1 SP and 2 AP every level...
They aren't racists. Probably just forgot about African Americans...like the wallpaper with 50 Caucasians.
Anyways, here's my take on the people in the boat.
3 white people:
ZOMG NO BLACKS RACIST BIAS STEREOTYPICAL *blah*
Black Driver, 2 White People:
ZOMG ZOMG BLACKS GET LOWER SOCIAL STATUS ZOMG ZOMG *etc*
2 Black People, White Driver:
Frigging people who want to treat all races equally
3 Black People:
ZOMG ZOMG THAT'S JUST FRIGGING BIAS AGAINST WHITES MAN!!

Everybody in JMS and KMS starts out white. You don't get to pick skin colour.

lack of diversity =/= racism.
Its more racist for them to consiously make someone who is a black NPC NOT drive the boat, because its a consious action against the color of their skin. I doubt they honestly considered who should be which when it comes to NPC's and Map objects.
You're reading way too deep into it IMO.

Seeing racism everywhere IS racist, Ive been there and noticed nothing.

That's kind of a lame observation towards racism..
Although, it is kind of sad that the Brown Teddies drop cotton.
