27. Re: New GeForce Drivers and GTX 1080 Ti Reviews Mar 20, 2017, 16:48 descender
 
Something that struck me during this nonsense... isn't Mass Effect as a series largely and wholly centered around dealing with racism (speciesism?) and stereotypes and overcoming them to bring people together to save the day?

Since almost all of the drama in the series is centered around dealing with one form of bigotry or another, it would seem that someone with some first-hand stereotypical viewpoints might actually be a great contributor to write that type of story.

It just seems really bizarre to me that you are boycotting a game that is largely about racism because a racist person may have worked on it.
Shouldn't you be complaining that major plot points from every one of these games is centered around that which you hate so much? The more I think about it the more I realize that the entirety of Mass Effect and Dragon Age are ripe with "racism as gameplay". It seems to be Bioware's "thing".

It must be hard damn work to get through the day with constantly asking people to affirm that every person involved in a company confirms to your beliefs before you spend any money there... Do you think that racists only work on video games that you boycott, or do you think it's possible that you actually deal with them on a regular basis and it isn't the end of the world when it happens? How many days did you spend vetting every employee at CIG for racist tendencies before you sent them close to $1000? I'm guessing zero days. It's far easier to boycott something you don't actually want.

I'm sure the "I'm sorry for wasting all of your time with something Bioware actually took care of a month ago" post is coming soon too...

The majority viewpoint isn't always correct. In no uncertain terms, I've expressed my point of view on the matter, and I firmly believe racism of any kind has NO place in the business world. However, it matters not. Manveer has stated he "left" BioWare to form his studio to do "amazing things." Good riddance. Hope he becomes a pariah in the industry. They don't need hatred; they need the best talent to produce amazing games that continue to be profitable.

Precisely. I would as vexed if BioWare had a senior person that was spouting racist viewpoints against any race. I don't buy products from companies that are supportive of such hateful rhetoric. Racism has no place in society, even more so in business.

To be clear, I have no illusions about the rest of the, non-Western, world. Human beings as a species -- until the post WWII period and even then only some us -- have oppressed, dominated, enslaved, and exploited other groups of human beings at least since the dawn of civilization, and almost certainly in our prehistorical hunter-gatherer period as well. This is a constant of human nature, regardless of race; it's just that since the Enlightenment, the West leapt so dramatically far ahead of the rest of the world, that we got really, really, really good at enslaving/oppressing/etc. for several centuries and thus the present global hierarchy, particularly with regards to race and ethnicity, is largely defined by the highly successful imperialist endeavors of Western Europeans during the 17th, 18th, 19th, and first half of the 20th centuries.

This does not mean Western European Whites are exclusively racist, or that East Asians, or Arabic Muslims, or Africans, or native/aboriginal peoples are some how innocent of all sin. It merely means that for the most recent few centuries, whites were better at exploitation than non-whites, and so non-whites got exploited hard -- where as in the past non-whites would have happily done the exploiting -- and that our present world is in many ways shaped by the success of White Europeans conquering the world. Particularly with regards to "Racism in America", the only way we start to have equality, where content of character matters more than the color of your skin and all that, is if we recognize, openly and with clear eyes, that American whites got to start the game of life on an easier difficulty setting than American blacks or other racial/ethnic groups. That doesn't mean all whites have easy lives, or that no white person ever experiences prejudice; it just means that the game is subtly rebalanced in your favor if you happened to roll white American for your race and national origin when your parents were drafting your character sheet.

Finally, as an aside, I am not one of those liberals who will pretend that all cultures are created equal. I believe the color of your skin or who your father was doesn't or at least shouldn't matter for who you are. But I do believe that certain cultures develop certain ways of doing things -- which is the definition of a culture -- which makes them more effective in certain realms of life, such as not starving during winter, not dying when sick, and being able to put a man on the moon as opposed to only gazing at the stars and wondering what they are. Clearly, Western culture has been highly, highly successful and I do not want to disparage its accomplishments (my first degree was in Classics, so it would be the strange reader of Latin and Greek who didn't see anything of value in the Roman and Greek past). But Western Culture's success in the post-Enlightenment period does not imply that Western culture is more moral, at least not by default. At its best the West provides a set of values and practices that allows more people to flourish and live in prosperity and peace than any other culture, but at its worst, it's just been far more effective at achieving mankind's basest and most animal of instincts: the need to dominate and wield power over others.

It's not that Whites or the West are the bad guys, at least not any more than any other race or culture, it's just that when we decided to be bad in recent centuries, we were really fucking good at it, and the world we live in in 2017 is still directly shaped by our ancestors decision to rule the world.

but it wasn't white people who came here against their will in chains, to serve as chattel slaves, and then to be freed only to face lynchings and Jim Crow, and it wasn't white people who were driven from their lands and nearly hunted to extinction in the name of the "Progress of Civilization" and "Manifest Destiny".

Whites were hardly the only people who engaged in the slave trade - natives and Muslims had a massive hand in it (and it was also outright tradition for their societies in warfare), and that's ignoring the rampant slavery that went on in all parts of the world throughout history (if not on the same scale - although proportionate to populations it did happen). Reconstruction was a disaster - it would be almost a century between the end of the American Civil War and the Civil Rights Act - but "elite" blacks were even worse than their white peers. Read Pakenham's The Scramble for Africa, the entire Oxford History of the United States series, and books about the colonial period (The Great Game et al.); it's pretty eye-opening. For example, a large part of continued slavery in the U.S. was due to Britain's market controls, not terribly unlike how we leveraged cheap labor in China. Yes, the Brits were largely white (and believed in white supremacy for a great time after outlawing slavery), but that's besides the point.

About 90-95% of Native Americans died to disease before a single English colonist had even set foot in the New World. They were hardly peaceful people to begin with, anyway. Mann's two works, 1491 and 1493 dovetail nicely with In the Hands of the Great Spirit on this subject. Again, pretty much a disaster, as for example the Oxford series follows Andrew Jackson's outright atrocities. On the other hand, these peoples were divisive and usually more racist against their peers than the whites (as with the Creoles) - especially against "half-breeds." The point I'm making in both cases is that racism was never limited to whites (check out modern events under Mugabe et al.). It's popular today to paint Columbus as a lying monster (which in many respects is an over-reaction given his time), and yes Iberians and Italians are white - but both actually had a lot of influence from previous Islamic cultures (southern parts of both countries). The Pursuit of Italy and Imperial Spain are good on the subject.

As for using "their dominance to exploit and oppress certain minority races and religious and ethnic groups" - yeah, peoples of all ethnicities did this throughout history, the Ottoman Empire being a strong example. This is a more sticky subject but Crowley's 1453 is a good start. It's en vogue today to have historical revisionism where the good guys become bad and the bad guys become good, but there's really no sugarcoating the fact that of the hundreds of civilizations I've read about, 99% were genocidal assholes at one time or another (look up modern genocides - since and including the 20th century), and slave-mongers to the core. Putting white people on a separate standard because they "won" some sort of cultural or technological race is intrinsically fallacious. Just consider the caste system in India (Keay's India is a good read). If humans are all truly the same with no racial factor, then it's safe to say we're all equally assholes if put in the same position.

Hey, I get what you're saying, and I actually agree with you on some level. It's definitely not an equivalency as advocates for minority races are inherently at a disadvantage. It's just that these things tend to fish-tail as with revolutions and counter-revolutions; it's dangerous to make exceptions when your rallying cry is supposed to be equality. Jesus, Gandhi, and King, to name a few, were the ones to have the right modern approach, and all three would roll in their graves (figuratively speaking) at reading the bullshit from this ex-BioWare dev. He's spouting hate for hate's sake as if that somehow will improve his lot. This is a pretty black and white case - nothing like the great globalism vs. nationalism debate taking place around the world - and while I'm proud to be white, I'm more proud to be an inclusive United States citizen. Hate is the destroyer.

Extremely mild racism, at that. Pretty much all the posts he linked to were amusingly accurate. Fuller House is definitely our fault, right?

Black people and Native Americans are both capable of negatively stereotyping and prejudging white people, but it wasn't white people who came here against their will in chains, to serve as chattel slaves, and then to be freed only to face lynchings and Jim Crow, and it wasn't white people who were driven from their lands and nearly hunted to extinction in the name of the "Progress of Civilization" and "Manifest Destiny".

What I see (including in Kxmode's post in the ME:A EA thread) is someone who is seriously pissed off about exactly this - and who is dealing with it in a negative, divisive way. He should make more considered comments, but then it's said that permissible exaggeration is one symptom of societal privilege.

Actually, no. How do you go from "The real terrorists are already on American soil and they are white" to "all white people are terrorists?" The fact is between 2001 and today, white right wing terrorists have killed more people than Islamic extremists. And white supremacists have infiltrated law enforcement. So no, the vast majority of white people are not terrorists, but white extremism exists in the US, and is emboldened by Trump's election. It's a shame you don't read the news, or you would have caught wind of it: attacks on Jewish institutions and cemeteries, attacks on Indians under the incorrect assumption they are Arabic, among others. The reason EA stands by the tweets is that they are factually correct.

Lastly, while I'm no huge fan of the games EA produces or how they produce them, the fact is EA is among the most tolerant and diverse workplaces in the nation.

JDreyer already mentioned this but - how did you go from his comment to "ALL white people"? (Also, and I know this is very much besides the point, but there are many terrorists who aren't nearly as bad as Al-Qaeda or ISIS.)

I find that thin-skinned white dudes see the word "all" everywhere they turned. Remember when people were convinced journalists attacked "all" gamers?

What I have a problem with is BioWare (and by extension EA) keeping him employed when they know of his constant racist and violent expressions: For example, "Justice is not the same as legal. The law is not always just. The US deserves no peace until it acts upon the moral imperative to be just."

That statement is true, it is valid, it is not at all racist, and it is something the majority of western individuals should actually learn both young and old.

Here in Canada we've had a few incidents recently that have underscored this issue. Two summers ago Jian Gomeshi (a well respected and recognized CBC personality) was charged with violent sexual assault. He was represented by one of the absolute best acting defense lawyers in Canada and cleared of charges. His career is still over. He was still vilified by the public.

His lawyer, Marie Henein, tried to speak to various universities afterwards to discuss the impact of the case. The fact that a woman represented a man accused of abusing other women and got him off the charges. Not because she thought he was necessarily innocent. But specifically that there IS a difference between justice and legal law. What the individuals feel is right or fair is not always reflected in the laws of the land but if you disrespect the process and judicial system we revert back to mob justice. ANY accused is innocent until proven guilty, regardless of how heinous the accusation may sound.

Our next generation of higher learning big thinkers shut her down. They protested just the idea of even letting her visit the campus. Not because she upheld the law and respected the system and wanted to address that reality and how to effectively make changes. But because she didn't take their idealistic side and try to crucify the perceived villain. There were claims she rolled back feminism by decades... by being a incredibly strong legal mind that functioned beyond her boobs?

The States (and the rest of the western world) are in a new time of social strife. They will not have peace until they address WHY the strife is happening, not only that it's happening. And most of it is a broken and unbalanced legal system. It's like working for a boss who brings in pop and chips to 'address' low morale with their staff then wonders why morale is still low. What legitimate effort is being made to truly rectify the situation and why should they get actual peace until they do so?


In my eyes anyone upset with his statement is more upset about the fact that he's pointing out how it is rather than how they'd rather see it through the tiny little holes in their cracker bunker.

I don't see anything wrong with that quote. He is not saying that all white people are terrorists, and he could have avoided speaking about skin color and just said "Americans". Not saying that dude doesn't have serious issues, because he does, but I don't find anything particularly wrong with that quote.

FTFY, brah.

I don't need ideological reasons to skip this mess. I really don't care if the ugly chicks are because BioWare wants to protest the sexualization of women in video games, or they just have crappy artists. They're ugly models with janky animations and a bland story. Pass!

Please don't fix my words.

Let me help you understand the difference between ideology and racism. As the name implies "ideology" is a system of ideas and ideals that form the basis for economic, political theory, and general policy (e.g. "I think it would be ideal to increase the minimum wage to $15 per hour"). Racism is not ideology. It's pure, undiluted hatred. More specifically, it is "the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races." Ironically, Martin Luther King Jr. said it best: "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

I am not irate with Manveer Heir for his overt racism. He has free will to do whatever he wishes. What I have a problem with is BioWare (and by extension EA) keeping him employed when they know of his constant racist and violent expressions: For example, "Justice is not the same as legal. The law is not always just. The US deserves no peace until it acts upon the moral imperative to be just." https://archive.is/AyFkk
Um, you do realize that the law is not always just, right? Remember the Jim Crow laws? Remember the Fugitive Slave Act? Remember fucking slavery, the legally enshrined definition of human beings as property? Jesus H Christ dude, what are you on about?

If BioWare and EA, as part of their culture, support and condone the employment of people who express incredibly hateful rhetoric, I will not reward their bad behavior. It benefits you to know the significance between ideology and racism.
Why are you a gamist? Being prejudicial against Bioware is adopting the same behavior as those you rail against.

Update: From Twitter: "According to @manveerheir, he has the support of Bioware top management for his comments on twitter." Image posted for proof. Yeah, so I won't be buying BioWare products as long as they continue to support racism towards a group of people. Very sad.

Really, dude. You need to think this through and explain yourself because you're making no sense.
