A funny realization i just had while watching twisted's latest video..

White people make the best rulers, because they're the only ones who can talk to everyone.

It gets even worse when you imagine a white king ordering his colored followers to gather resources from their home lands so he can build a big city in the green.

Uncomfortable undertones of casual racism define the "family specializations" update

But over time this advantage gets smaller and smaller until it doesn't exist at all as families learn each other language

White people are like bad players. They demand shit but never do it themselves.

You guys are the support team, make the pipes and charcoal for the gingers, gather the rope for the brown(buckets) and black people(lasso).

Is that the natural progression of democracy I hear? Post-modern values as it were.

Actually gingers are rulers because they are the only ones who can make crowns.
Also Jason is trying to make ginger into a race. Ginger people are white too. The Arctic people should be Asian like Tibet.

Re: A funny realization i just had while watching twisted's latest video..

I feel like term Inuit is inherently problematic because it fails to encompass the Yupik and Aluit people, among other cultutally and geographically distinct tribes.   

I would rather use a more inclusive term when speaking in broad strokes about indigenous circumpolar peoples.

Are you implying that black and brown people are more of a race than ginger people, even though race is an outdated concept that doesn't even exist outside the US?


I appreciate they/them pronouns~ thanks

Lum is right. The concept of race is not one based on science so making ginger a race is as accurate as making blacks and brown people races.

Jason is in the US (California). And yes, I am implying that. The unfortunate truth is that it is still very much defining: you are judged by your race. However gingers are not judged or discriminated against, and like white people they are not being economically kept down like black and brown people in the US. Also, they face no previous persecution.

Tell that to Scott Tenorman...


In all reality though, Racism in the US is widely misrepresented in the media.  Minorities are not nearly as oppressed as the news would have you believe.  Just look at all the #BlackLivesMatter studies that panned out with no result of bias and were shamelessly swept under the proverbial rug because they didn't produce the drama/evidence of racism that the media wanted them to.

Racism sells, folks... equality doesn't.

You're not about to make this FORUM FOR A GAME into a debate about race. Stop baiting.

Not true. Police brutality and bias is serious. If you lived in Chicago like I do you might understand. I also live nextdoor to ghettos, living proof that black people are economically kept down. But yeah, voy is right. This is a game forum, not a debate stage.

You're right, sorry.  I just see someone screaming inequality and it triggers me a bit.   Less about the racism, more about misrepresentation of things in the media.  Same with the whole "video games are evil!" debacle.


Also, Scott Tenorman is a South Park character... purely a joke!

The other day I needed sulphur and realized that the family specialty update happened since I last played so I asked a black person to do it and when he said no I held a knife and threatened to murder him and then his entire family if he didn't so he gathered it for me the family specialty update is pretty cool guys

But if you kill him and his entire family, how will you gather sulfur.   

Obviously, you should have at least kept one of the girl children alive to gather the sulfur.  Maybe keep her in a locked room so she can't run away from town.   You can trade her pies in exchange for fresh "workers".

I was actually thinking about becoming a baby snatcher in one of my lives. The idea is that I will hang around a village and wait for a woman to give birth and then kidnap the baby and feed him berries to keep him healthy. Keep him with you at knife point when he gets old enough to run and hopefully he will be compliant enough to bring him back to my own village. There I will keep people of every race locked up behind fences and when we need a certain resource you can let them out and have them harvest it for you.

Sounds like a lot more work than just asking your neighbors for a cup of sugar and a bucket of latex.  But that's just me, I guess.
