I'll leave the rest of your intentionally inflammatory accusations in the dumpster fire of ignobilty like it rightly deserves.
Deflection translation: I have no sophistry to deflect from my raging narcissism and desire to scream at black folk who dare demand the same options as white people.

And it's a mystery why she feels that way huh?

What's fundamentally wrong with people like you is that you pretend history and cultural forces don't matter when it comes to black people. The society she lives in affects her life and molds her experiences.

It's a basic realization when you accept that she's actually a human being.

What "white" art? You can adjust the facial structure in the game. The article also clearly shows someone made a black character. Clearly you don't even know what you're arguing about now.
You really need to work on your reading comprehension.

The article clearly states it is possible to create a dark skinned character, but if you want to give it "black" features the options are inadequate, and explains exactly how that is the case. But somehow, clearly I'm the one who doesn't understand what's going on.

Listen, you and your morally defective buddies are cool with separate and unequal, because that's the legacy of outright racism you've decided to carry on. Why don't you just own up to it?

Exactly, you can create "white" characters, you CAN also create "black" characters. I'm sure there's many more skin colours you can represent with it. There literally is NOT a problem here.
Putting dark skin on art designed to portray white characters doesn't make it "black". That is a problem, and a very simple problem, yet it's apparently too difficult for you to understand.

I'd reply to the rest of your comment, but honestly your poor grammar makes it hard to parse.
If only you were ESL so you had an excuse for being unable to read your own language.

Doesn't matter, like I said, it's made for the Japanese market first.
And It HAS diversity, it's just not diverse enough, and never will be for some people.
It's sad you think this is a logical comment to make.

When you say Japanese and white is "diversity", you're the problem.

And it makes no sense to say that the problem is simply caused by the game coming from Japan. If that was true then there'd be no character creation options to create white characters either.

I do thank ya for the effort, sir. Will there be anything else that I don't know about myself and should shut up about according to your impeccable values?
C'mon man, he's so reactionary that answer is obvious.

He's happy with white people having unearned advantages, and therefore you should shut up about anything related to changing that status quo. It's all your problem, he doesn't want to hear about it because it's working out fine for him.

I agree. Devs should cater to narcissists of all types, so each player can change their hero to look exactly like them, and truly admire their meta-self. That's why I only read books in which the protagonist has my name. I'm just flabbergasted that authors dare to write about anyone else.
If it's narcissism when black players want to be able to play black characters but can't, how much more narcissistic is it when white players actually do that? And therefore more importantly, why doesn't that bother you as much as black players saying they want to do what white players already can?

One can point to every previous post in this thread as proof that white privilege is real, and that those who have it are determined to hold onto it while denying it exists.

Bestselling historian and economist Tom Woods: "American workers had the eight-hour-day well before their much more heavily unionized counterparts in Europe did"
Spain got an 8 hour work day in 1593, American workers were striking for a 10 hour work day in 1791. Your historian also willfully confuses Unions with the labor movement as a whole. The labor movement started agitating for 8 hour days in America around 1860. It seems to be the same for Europe.

In what passes for medicine coming out of Washington these days, people are being told that after receiving their second C-19 vaccination that it will still be necessary to wear face masks because--get this--even though you are now immune to the strain and cannot develop C-19, and cannot carry it since you are immune, it will still be possible for you to pass "it" on to other people...;) I kid you not!
It's sad that so many people confuse cynicism with wisdom.
