Cuban American Bar Association Condemns Racially Charged Video Game (thanks Chris Johnson and Gamasutra (registration required)) has word of the latest unhappy reaction to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, as the Cuban American Bar Association (CABA) has sent a letter "to the manufacturers of the video game... condemning the game's use of racially charged remarks promoting the hate and killing of Haitians and Cubans," demanding an apology to each group. They copy U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and Florida Governor Jeb Bush , as they are also "seeking the removal of the offensive video game from store shelves throughout the country." Finally: "CABA's letter quotes the Haitian government spokesperson, Mr. Mario Dupuy, who stated, 'this racist game is psychologically extremely dangerous and is an incitement to genocide.'"

#19, that's because your sub-group isn't:

ethno·centric:
1.Belief in the superiority of one's own ethnic group.
2.Overriding concern with race.

like these cuban and haitian racists. Haiti which practices genocide and tyranny to it's own people and a goverment spokesperson has the nerve to talk about dangers and genocides. When you have a business that runs like clockwork, then you can talk about other businesses. Comments from these folks just doesn't hold water. It's like O.J. Simpson selling books on how to treat your wife good.

I'm also glad that Ashcroft and J.Bush are speaking out about this game. This just goes to show the public that democratic tyranny is finally in full bloom.
