NY's Racist Games Bill

GamePolitics reports a new bill that's been proposed here in New York to create a state law to prohibit the sale of video games using racist language or stereotypes. The text of the bill seems to be missing, but here is the summary of Bill A01474: "Prohibits the sale to minors of certain rated video games containing a rating that reflects content of various degrees of profanity, racist stereotypes or derogatory language, and/or actions toward a specific group of persons."

Read the article people. This is just to minors, though the post WAS worded poorly. I have no issue with prohibition of sales of certain material to minors. We've been doing it for decades. I DO think it should apply to all forms of media if they are going to do this though... films included.
