Forums - Gaming Discussion - CoD WW2 hanging black folks?

https://urbanintellectuals.com/2017/11/16/wth-theyre-hanging-black-people-call-duty-ww2/

Wife sent me the image because I bought the game for my 15yr old, but I am not sure if the photo:

1. Is depicting random european folks

2. Is depicting light-skinned black folks.

Of course this is starting to hit FB and will hit all the normal US political/racial fires.

I don't play the game and can't find a good quality image. Anyone have one?

Never noticed that in the game. What mission is it in the campaign? Not a big deal since you kill lots of people In the game.

But considering that you bring up being 10% black and that you refuse to play games that involve killing Christians, shouldn't you refuse to play this game too?



If it is, so be it. I'm black and I'm not offended.
Also, I've seen my share of dead bodies in my last job. Even white people turn black (or even blue) when they die. Everything isn't racist... unless you're on Facebook. Then, everything IS racist.

 

*Edit*

Looked at the image. Yeah, they're black. But I'm still not offended.

If it's white men, then yes, it's not a big deal, or even a deal of any scale.

He used to be a cop as far as I remember though it would be more interesting if there was an accident at the nuclear power plant where he was (and probably still is?) working.
Please let it be the nuclear power plant.



To be clear... I don't think it would be offensive regardless of the color or race of the people. Its a game about war and atrocities of war. There is some realism to be expected.



The source is terrible, I have a hard time trusting articles that can't even properly use the English language, so I have my doubts about its authenticity. Good sources for news actually check articles and correct spelling/grammar mistakes before publishing themselves, just looks amateurish if they don't even do that. If they don't even check their language then there's not much chance they checked their sources and facts before publishing either...

Although if it is true... what's the context? Seems kind of strange to just show a picture of 2 black men hanging and saying that's in a game. If the context justifies it then that shouldn't be an issue. I can't think of a context for black men to be hanging in a WW2 game (would make sense if they were jewish though), but maybe there is one that makes sense.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

WWII wasn't a happy time.
