Looking at his own hands everyday must make him feel like a total racist.

[–] TheMajestic 0 points 71 points (+71|-0) ago 

I know! I mean, what if he were a 10 year old black girl?!

[–] Voat_Goat_of_Mendes 2 points 23 points (+25|-2) ago 

She, you shitlord! Clearly she identifies herself as transracial-transgender-transaged!

Not give a fuck because 10 year old black girls don't care about Mario, or 10 year old white girls for that matter. Or 10 year olds in general.

EDIT: Downvote me all you want dumbasses. 10 year olds don't play Mario these days, they play Minecraft. Go back to Reddit where the hivemind belongs

Of course it does, poor whitey. Nintendo should give him his own version so he doesn't have to worry so much. No stylus, just a robot hand giving him the finger.

[–] Atherz097 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago 

Make sure that the robot is a plain see-through, because any other colors choices would be biased and offensive to those who do not like said color.

His white guilt is impressive. I prefer the W in SJW standing for Wackjob as he stated. Warrior gives these fucks too much confidence.

[–] KyleHydesNotebook 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago 

White guilt is a strange creature.

[–] TH0UGHTP0LICE 1 points 75 points (+76|-1) ago 

Whoa whoa whoa whoa, what the fuck is up with all the racist posts in this thread? Every single one is BLACK text on a much larger WHITE background.

I use Night-mode because I like to look at white things on top of black things.

[–] andrewsad1 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Oh my god, night mode is so oppressive. White text being the focus of your attention, while the dark background is ignored? That could trigger someone!

[–] piratebatman 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

I don't know what you're talking about. All I see is WHITE text on a much larger BLACK background

[–] jags_T 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

of course, you might be like me and using "night mode" white on black background ☺

Seriously, do we really fucking care what skin tone Super Mario Maker's hand cursor is? Really? You know, I'm actually more amazed that they even fucking included an option for different skin tones in the game than that this guy is bitching about the need for them. Do people really give a shit about this kind of thing? Do they really care? I mean what kind of insane world do we live in??

[–] In_Cog_Nito 0 points 57 points (+57|-0) ago 

This is modern gaming journalism in a nutshell, trying to force gamers and the gaming industry to comply with their SJW demands. This is one reason why Gamergate exists and will not die.

[–] SuperConductiveRabbi 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago  (edited ago)

You missed a critical link in the chain of logic, in my opinion. There are two reasons they try to get the gaming industry to capitulate to their demands: 1. stirring up controversy gets them ad revenue; 2. when they demand a win or lose situation, and they win, it gives them more power and attention (and when they lose, they can scream about the injustice done to them)

This SJW shit has absolutely nothing to do with actual justice...which is why SJWs are the biggest proponents of injustice in the entire industry. Their real motives are related to a thirst for attention, social media whoring, misguided youth eager to hear other people tell them how smart and unique they are, and moneymaking scam-artists like Mcintosh and his actress Anita Sarkeesian.

This is the world that comes from complacency. We no longer have to fight sabretooth tigers, space octopi, natives, disease, famine and more in first world countries. I doubt they care so much about Mario Maker's hand color in places like Congo.

[–] Kabuthunk 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

Far too many people live their lives looking only for ways to be offended.

Why people dedicate their lives to making themselves less comfortable, I'll never know.

[–] Aubryn 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

Do people really give a shit about this kind of thing?

Am black, don't care.

Frankly, I'm really bored of hearing people (usually white) complaining "for me on my behalf." I've said this in another thread, but growing up not having protagonists and whatnot look like me is one of the things that contributed to me learning to relate to people or characters for other reasons than something as superficial as skin color.

[–] AVX 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

usually white

As a white person, painfully true

The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything. Except what is worth knowing. Journalism, conscious of this, and having tradesman-like habits, supplies their demands.

guise... can you pls tag these as "TRIGGER WARNING". I'm triggered by white hands. I was molested by my own white hand several years ago.

[–] toatsmavoats 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

I feel for you, I myself am in an ongoing abusive relationship with both of my hands.

[–] Chingasa 0 points 11 points (+11|-0) ago 

So just so I'm on the same page here. The hand is just a demo gimmick for a display to show how the touch pad operates, and a giant hand does not actually take up a third of your screen while playing, it's just there to represent your hand doing the things. Correct?

Because the articles final sentence of sarcasm is really throwing me off. At least, I'm hoping it's sarcasm.

[–] Pebcaks 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

The hand is actually in the game, but only on the big screen. Here's a video from 2014 E3 that shows it in action.

It doesn't seem that distracting tbh because you'd be looking at the gamepad as you create. And as you can see the hand fades away quickly by the time you look up to admire your work.

[–] JayTS 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

I hope there's an option to turn the hand off. I don't need to see a virtual hand on the big screen to mimic my hand on the small screen. Then again, I don't own a modern Nintendo system, so I'm not likely to ever play this game anyway, so nevermind.

[–] DANKGHIDORAH 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

How can you tell the difference between a Caucasian hand and a Japanese hand? hint, you fucking can't Way to jump the gun and assume that was a white hand. What if it weren't?! Imagine the bullshit outcry...

One will be clenched around the throats of the poor, the other will be drawing anime?
