Is it me or does the Redemptionist Gang bare a slight resemblance to the KKK?
so does most of the entire imperial belief system, but nobody has complained yet, heck I've even seen a cloured player paint his redemptionist gang white as a joke....although they were banned from the store.Is it me or does the Redemptionist Gang bare a slight resemblance to the KKK?
I've only seen a handful of non-white gamers over here in the US (most of them being of Asian descent), so I think it is more an issue of predisposition than anything. I know that sounds slightly racist, but that's not my intent. On the subject of attempting to reach-out to a non-caucasian customer base, when the X-Men first started, all the team members (Professor X, Cyclopse, Marvel Girl, Angel, Beast and Ice Man) were white. In an effort to broaden their market in the seventies, Marvel added international characters such as Storm (Africa), Colossus (Russia) and Nightcrawler (German, still white, but I guess they needed to expand there). Unfortunately, Africa, Russia and the other countries they tried to expand to didn't have a large base of comic book readers and so they never saw the sales increases they hoped for.it has created something of a vicious circle: the game's original core market was predominately white, so the product is made with white interests. this, of course, appeals to more white people, making the market even more white and thus fuelling an even more white-focused product.
