ARE GAMES RACIST? Probably. Game characters are pretty white... like 85% white... and when minorities are included, they are not always cast in the best light. Why is this? Are game designers actually racist? Or are there technical reasons for not creating more minorities? Either way, gaming definitely does have a balance problem in terms of race, and that IS a big deal. Watch the episode to find out more!
