Borderlands 2 Racism Discussion

Kotaku has a running summary of an discussion taking place over twitter over whether the Tiny Tina character in Borderlands 2 is racist, based on the white character's use of clichéd African-American slang. Some have expressed the opinion that this is "verbal blackface," and after originally resisting, lead writer Anthony Burch moved on to try to expand the discussion to see if he needed to re-work the character's dialog in future releases. Randy Pitchford's take on this is that it's not racist as long as it was not written by a racist: "@reverendanthony tina is not racist because you are not racist. You're a pillar of tolerance and inclusion." Thanks nin.

Few things annoy me more than self-righteous douchecanoes that feel the need to speak up and defend people that are more than capable of doing so for themselves, as if they're trying to assuage some endless deep-seated guilt.

It's why America has become a wasteland of talking heads, trial lawyers, and overreaching government.
