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.'"

Rockstar should just do what the guys who made Hitman did. Say "Oh we're so very sorry, we'll take appropriate steps to remove the {insert offensive material here} from the game." then snicker up your sleeves and forget about it. It's not like the haitians HAVE a PC or PSX2 to play the game on, so they'll never notice anyways.

I'm still killing evil kukhri wielding rukhs or whatever the fuck they were called in Hitman 2, and I just drove my Icecream truck through five more groups of Haitian Cubans. Take that, Haiti!

I'm sure Jeb and Dubyah will also be extremely attentive when this letter comes across.

- Sir, we have a letter of protest from Haiti.
- Where?
- Haiti Sir, it's to the left of the Dominican Republic.
- And why do I care?
- Well, it's about this videogame and...
- Is this about terrorism?
- No sir, it's about perceived insults towards the haitians and...
- Well Dammit, Bomb the fuckers and let me get back to my breakfast!

If you're next in line, Haiti, you asked for it...
