Hello world!

October 12, 2009

I’m sure I’m not the only black girl gamer, but it looks like I’m the only one with the audacity to rant about race relations and the gaming industry. A girl gamer, and BLACK! Wow, I’m like the embodiment of the market that will NEVER be served by the gaming industry- is it for good reason? I’ll get into what it means to GWB (game while black) with tact, ’cause trust me, there’s a whole lotta stuff that needs to be said and explored.

No, Not a GTA player!

No, Not a GTA player!

I’m sure you have initial questions- here are my answers:

  1. No, I don’t play Madden or Grand Theft Auto.
  2. Yes, I do create characters with enriched palettes, but not all the time.  I also play white dudes (or fae, or elves) from time to time.
  3. Yes, I do play/engage in MMO’s, virtual worlds, and console games.
  4. No, I do not live nor have I ever lived in the “hood.”
  5. Yes, I can speak 1337 fluently.
  6. No, I am not an oreo; I’m proud to be Black, happy to have melanin, comfortable in my own skin, and all that good stuff.
  7. No, I am not going to approve of the asinine things that some Black people do, no more so than I will approve of the asinine behavior of other races. I am not a martyr, simply stating observations and hoping to reach out to more aliens like myself.

Here goes something, or nothing. We shall see!
