    Are you kidding me, this is getting god damn ridiculous. Maybe they should compile a list of things to do that will not cause racism toward the blacks.
    OSU And Michigan are behind these studies and I want to know who funds them and why.


    Columbus, Ohio (CBS CLEVELAND) – Violent video games encourage negative racial attitudes and thoughts, with white game players displaying stronger implicit and explicit aggressive attitudes toward blacks when they play as black characters.
    A new study from researchers at The Ohio State University and the University of Michigan finds that white gamers who played as black avatars exhibited more racist sentiments, including connections made between blacks and weapons and photos of black people being linked to words such as “horrible†and “evil.â€

    “This is a very troubling finding,†the researchers write in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.
    “Our research suggests that people who play violent video games as violent black characters are more likely to believe that blacks are violent people,†writes a research team led by Grace Yang of the University of Michigan and Brad Bushman of the Ohio State University. “Playing a violent video game as a black character reinforces harmful stereotypes that blacks are violent.â€

    The study examined the effects of playing violent video games as a black avatar (versus a white character) on racial stereotypes and aggression. Games such as Grand Theft Auto V and Saints Row 2 allow players to choose the race of their character, and the study findings suggest that a player’s aggression against others is increased “immediately afterwards†in some cases, “even more than playing a violent game as white characters would.â€
    “The media has the power to perpetuate the stereotype that blacks are violent, and this is certainly seen in video games,†Bushman told The Daily Mail. “This violent stereotype may be more prevalent in video games than in any other form of media because being a black character in a video game is almost synonymous with being a violent character.â€

    In a second portion of the study, 141 white college students – 65 percent being female — played one of two games: WWE Smackdown vs. RAW 2010, or Fight Night Round 4. They spent equal time playing as both black and white avatars.
    Half the participants in one portion of the study played a violent game in which they attempted to break out of prison, “which required them to kill many guards.†Others played a non-violent game in which they were tasked with finding “a chapel somewhere in the city,†and to refrain from harming others.
    After playing the games for 20 minutes, participants who played as black avatars were more likely to link photos of black faces with weapons, while those who played as white characters associated white faces with objects such as mobile phones.

    They were also asked to respond to statements measured on a “symbolic racism scale†such as, “If blacks would only try harder, they could be just as well off as whites.â€
    Participants were also tested on a seemingly unrelated food preferences test in which they tested hot sauce, and then were asked how much another person would like the spicy food.
    Among players of the violent game, those who used a black avatar gave their “partner†more hot sauce compared to those who used a white avatar. The black avatar participants gave the hypothetical food “partner†more than double (115 percent) the amount of chili sauce than participants who played as white avatars.

    The researchers suggested this element of the study was “particularly noteworthy,†because “this increase in aggression occurred over and above any increase in aggression among participants playing the violent game as a white avatar.â€
    In addition to negative attitudes held toward black people, the study noted that women and police were depicted negatively in a way that may have aggressive effects following gameplay.

    “Police are portrayed as brutal. Players witnessing or enacting these violent actions may develop a distrust of police,†write the researchers. “Other violent games portray women in a sexualized and stereotypic way†that may impact male attitudes toward women in their real lives.

    According to FBI data on violent crime and murder rates, in 2012, an estimated 1,214,462 violent crimes occurred nationwide, an increase of 0.7 percent from the 2011 estimate. Of the 12,765 murder victims in 2012 for which supplemental data were received, most (77.7 percent) were male.
    Concerning murder victims for whom race was known, 51.1 percent were black, 46.3 percent were white, and 2.6 percent were of other races. Race was unknown for 130 victims. Of the offenders for whom race was known, 52.4 percent were black, 45.2 percent were white, and 2.4 percent were of other races. The race was unknown for 4,077 offenders. If we are talking about racism and crime stats in the last paragraph why are the stats that show the race of the PERPETRATORS of these murders that were caught and the stats about the number of murders committed every year by blacks?? I guess that doesn't fit the IT'S WHITEY'S FAULT NARRATIVE.

    Robin I'm sick of these video games. When I create my black avatar it doesn't allow me to customize the cock. I mean ... what's even the point, Robin?

    i dont need an expensive study to tell you blacks are more racists than whites and you don't need a video game to egg them on.

    This is precisely why Nintendo is still the best. They don't make black video game characters.

    They've put their foot into the water with Donkey Kong but that's as close as they've gotten.

    Anyone here ever play Left 4 Dead II?

    It takes place in the south, Georgia through to the evacuation site in New Orleans. There were people boycotting it when it came out saying that its portrayal of black zombies in the south was racist and that the bodies of people floating in the bayous face down with dark skin was racist and making light of the events of Hurricane Katrina. :facepalm:

    Here's the trailer, and if you notice, two of the four protagonists are black people, and the left still screamed "racism." :facepalm:
