The notion that the USA, or the world, will ever be post-racism is laughable at best.

We're clearly not post-racism because trivial stuff like this still makes headlines.

no we're not. the day blacks in the north east corner of our country stop referring to my eldest son as "jap boy" in school because of his eyes is the day when i will care about what genetic material lies underneath a dark skinned individual. it even surprised me that the words "jap boy" didnt alarm his black teachers. until then, lets just enjoy the simplicity of identifying by skin color.

Yeah, cause I've always had such an overwhelming desire to play a black chick in a game. Spare us your liberal ethnic/gender sensibilities Ubisoft. Such a boneheaded move it boggles the mind. It's one thing to provide people a choice, it's another entirely to foist it on them. Definite pass.

What about Alyx Vance from Half Life 2?

She is Creole or Cajun at best, not black. The title of the article is misleading. Stupid ass media can't even tell the difference between someone who is mix and someone who isn't. Next they will be saying Ezio is white.

the article did mention her origin so i dont know why you say they are misleading. i know using the word black is a broad generalization but its done to other races as well. take it for what its worth. they got your attention but not enough to read the article.

The game is subtitled Liberation, and it will feature a French woman of African descent named Aveline in the Louisiana city of New Orleans.

Great, now we've got the 'not black enough' and the 'too black' complaints covered.

They call that black? I'm sorry but that just makes me think of a room full of old white guys in suits where someone pitched the idea of a "colored person" to broaden their user base, but they lost their nerve when they were about to go past the tanned-white-girl mark.
+1 It's simply a box ticking exercise for their ethnic diversity quota.

I've had ICS for a few months now and wouldn't dream of going back to 3. Just like Windows won't go back to an earlier version either.

Wait till Windows 8.

Maybe she'll look different in the game but it just seems like a half-effort.  
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.
