Investigating the Gaming Disease

Clinton, Lieberman propose CDC investigate games on GameSpot has word that US Senators Joeseph Lieberman, Hillary Clinton, and Dick Durbin are behind legislation to get the CDC (yes, as in the Center for Disease Control) to investigate the "impact of electronic media use" (like violent gaming). Far be it from us to be cynical about this and suggest this is to try and bolster these gaming bills that keep getting shot down in various states (by the way, there's a new one in the works in Tennessee), especially when GameSpot has saved us the time:
Even though the legislation--called the Children and Media Research Advancement Act--does not include restrictions, it appears to be intended as a way to justify them. That's because a string of court decisions have been striking down antigaming laws because of a lack of hard evidence that minors are harmed by violence in video games.

This "is a big step toward helping parents get the information they need about the effect of media on their children," Lieberman said after the vote by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Lieberman's two Republican cosponsors of the bill are senators Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Sam Brownback of Kansas.

The original version of the bill earmarked $90 million for the study, but Lieberman press secretary Rob Sawicki said that the committee had approved the measure without any dollar figure and that such a figure would be added later during the appropriations process.

Well, the other two posters are right, venomhed; you're off the deep end. A card-carrying racist of the KKK school.

I'm not Black myself, actually, I'm a German immigrant. And I know your kind from back home; THEY are the losers who blame everyone else, mostly minorities, for their issues.

I'm not even going to get tangled up in any more discussion, but I need to point out that The Bell Curve was produced and published by an Arch Conservative think tank, the American Enterprise Institute, which is not only full of racists but is also run by the worst rich assholes in American society. In fact, two good buddies sat on the board of the AEI together: Kenneth Lay (Mr. Enron) and Dick Cheney.

This isn't BareBack Mountain and I didn't say we were together. I am also not a Nazi because I do not believe in the extermination of anyone. But look at the cartoons on that site and don't tell me some of them aren't true? Such as the jewish rabi spraying swastikas on buildings to make people think nazi power is still around in your neighborhood.

Happened here in San Francisco.

As for being proven that blacks are scientifically mentally inferior, check out the book called The Bell Curve. Also your statement that they are physically superior may be true. I tend to agree with that on average. Still, they haven't won a UFC championship which tells you something.

Oh and don't tell me there aren't anti white websites.

"Blacks are scientifically proven to be lazy, unintelligent and violent"

And this is where you step off the deep end. There is no such scientific proof. Pretty much the only biological differences between white and black people is that black people have more efficient muscles and are genetically more inclined towards sickle cell disease. Oh, and the melanin thing.

But that word 'scientifically' you use; it really does not mean what you think it does.

You really should go start thinking for yourself instead of dumbly swallowing what others say. Demand proof (and know what can constitute proof).

Its your mentality of blaming EVERYONE else but yourselves for keeping your god damn ass down. NOT Whitey.

I force you to say Nigger to your black friends? That is utter stupidity my friend, not white racism. Get off your fucking high horse and get a job you loser. Learn what a condom is and quit breeding. We are all tired of the black sob story.

Asians have come over here, some right from Vietnam and look where they are? Thats right, they are working hard and paying their bills. Sure laugh at them with their 100 year old Datson with 2 tons of cardboard, at least they are DOING something! At least they are making it better for their kids to move forward for the next generation.

I sure don't see them holding out their hand for wellfar checks, watermelon and fried chicken yelling cracker mo fo nigga!

The majority of black people in America are the lowest of the low worldwide. No one wants them here. They claim to fucking "keep it real" and act like they are African Americans when they no nothing about Africa. Blacks are scientifically proven to be lazy, unintelligent and violent. For the sorry few that are cool and kick back, raised right and know what is up I truly feel sorry for them. But you know what? I don't have time to fucking care. I am so tired of working with black people and their bullshit.

Why is it then that there are only two minority groups that don't improve their standard of living each genertion? African Americans and Native Americans are the ONLY two groups who don't become wealthier each generation.

It's the culture that keeps those two races down, not whitey. Why is UC Berkerly dominated by Asians? Because they fucking STUDY THEIR ASSES OFF.

I can't believe some of the crap you people are spouting.

If you think Hip Hop is all there is to Black culture, you've really been thoroughly brainwashed by MTV. You guys talk as if every black person in the US is into violence and crime and drugs.

And how can you say it's not the problem or the responsibility of the Caucasians? Blacks have been kept in poverty ever since slavery. Poverty among African-Americans is three times as high as among whites. You want to blame them for that? Then please explain to me why applications with Black sounding names are only half as likely to receive calls for interviews as applications with white sounding names with the very same qualifications. Why is it that unemployment among Black people rises much more quickly in times of economic downturns? Hint: they're the first to get fired.

Truth is, racism is still rampant in this country. I am raising two biracial children; do I have to tell you about all the times they get excluded from play with other kids because "Black kids aren't allowed in this game?" Or the times the other kids call them Niggers? And trust me, my sons don't use that word themselves. Those other kids get it from their parents, and from society at large. It's not only Hip Hop that keeps the word alive; Hip Hop tries to claim it because white racists keep using it.

Yes, modern Hip Hop is full of sexism, reverse racism, violence, and all that shit, and I hate it. But that's not all there is to Black culture, and it certainly isn't to blame for the poverty and lack of opportunities that drives minorities to criminal activities.

Man you are absolutely right. I could not have said it better myself. The way blacks claim hip hop and gangsta bullshit as their 'culture' is fucking rediculous. Of course not all blacks are like that, and the ones that aren't deserve respect. But sadly, the the majority of them are like that. Come to the deep south for awhile, the reverse racism here is fucking fantastic... while most whites here just want to live and let live, the blacks always stir up the shit somehow. What kills me is they also expect white ppl to be scared of them for some reason, and I think it's hilarious, because most of us are crazier than they are by far believe me.

"Hip Hop is an attempt by black people to teach white people what life is about. "

Black people teaching whites what life is all about? God damn that is the laugh of the century besides some of my crazy outbursts.

American Blacks are their own worst enemy. They constantly complain about everything the white man does to them yet they never, EVER accept responsibility for their own actions. Haven't you seen the rift created fairly recently where some blacks (Cosby for one, everyone knows him) and many others are denouncing American Blacks for being complainers, never taking a stand, never helping or promoting education for their own race?

Around 64% of American Black people around the age of 25 have been in prison. That's white people's problem?

2/3 of black babies will be born without a father. Thats caused by whites?

Black on Black crime is huge. Far more than white on black or black on white crime. Drug use is common place with black people, that's my problem?

Reverse racism where blacks can rag on white but not the other way around?

Its "nigga" not "nigger"? Well shit, are blacks the only race stupid enough to keep their most hated word alive and kicking hundreds of years after slavery? I never use the word, but since I am white its MY fault.

Hip hop videos showing blacks with guns. Blacks calling black girls "ho's", livin the life, bangin, breaking into cars. Ya thats all caused by goo ol whitey.

And you wonder why I am 100% racist towards black people? Fuck man, go outside, meet some American Blacks and after 10 years you tell me how you feel about them.

Blacks teaching white how life is. Shit man, if that's the case, KILL ME NOW. I would never act as "they" do. Thats right, separation, THEY!

By the way, if anyone's seen the Masters of the World around...um...look, this is awkward, but they owe me five bucks...

The CDC should probably look into not only video games, but Hip-Hop, that "rock" stuff (KISS kills kids!) and most especially, those really horrible kids who have long hair...and piercings.

....I mean seriously, so what? Rock and Roll didn't kill the youth of the world, neither will hip hop, neither will video games, and neither will the vast majority of things in the world. (Well, Geena Davis is debateable). Sure, you get a few people who play a violent video game/listen to a violent song, then turn around and blow someone's brains out. The thing is, the odds are good they would've done it anyway.

Here, riddle me this: How come more violent crimes, more corrupt children, aren't having their "dangerous influenced" behavior linked to Looney Toons? I love those cartoons to death, but if you actually stop and look at the stuff they do to each other...Whoa. And yet, I see so few (none) who confess to the police that the reason they put on women's clothing and forced their friend to shoot their other friend was because "That's how Bugs Bunny got Daffy, with Elmer Fudd!"

People. Sheesh.

Can you imagine being a Real World cameraman? You film the kids having sex, but you can't put it on TV. So you take the tape, put it in your pocket, and take it home for viewing with your other pedophilic friends.

Thats a good fucking laugh in't it? Film "the kids" having sex...yeah 18+ year old kids, what is the world coming to when two consenting adults can have sex together and sign a release form to have it filmed?! I tell you who it is, it's those damn pedophiliac camera-men and their damn pedo-smiles! Seriously, haven't we seen enough of you short-sighted alarmist sons of bitches running around?

Personally, I think JaZeel makes very good comments. Many of us play games too much. Who's to say that some "moron" who plays WoW for 40 hours a week couldn't become a doctor, engineer, or maybe start a multi million dollar company? Out of the 6 million subscribers, you don't think there are some very smart people wasting their lives playing WoW for 40 hours a week?


Why do I play WoW for 10 to 20 hours each week? Because I enjoy it. I also enjoy a lot of other activities outside of gaming, and during the spring through fall seasons they take priority in my life. Not to mention my career, girlfriend, and other social responsibilities.


Unfortunately many people do NOT have any activities or ambitions outside of gaming. That is very unfortunate, and maybe they do need some prodding from the government if that's what it takes. But this is a free society where people can do whatever they want, whether that be sitting in front of the TV and getting fat, or playing WoW for 40+ hours a week and getting fat, losing their job, wife, etc.


In the end of my long rant, ya, I disagree with the government saying our form of enjoyment is a "disease". Unfortunately for some people it really is a disease of sorts, and for children much of that stems from poor parenting.

There WILL be a female president in 2008. Look at your TV. The new TV show with Geena Davis is preparing everyone for what the masters have decided.

You're fucking insane. The "masters"? Whoa man, you are way beyond tinfoil. Way to turn a thread about video game restriction into some nutso fucking zionist conspiracy theory. I bet you just spend your entire day typing lieberman and clinton into google to see if new posts pop up for you to hand-wring and spout off your insane fucking rantings.

Video games don't help much, neither do violent movies, but really its all about the black hip hop explosion that has gotten us into this mess.

I think things have really gone down hill since this "Rock and Roll" has become popular amongst today's youth.
