Interesting article, but I think you're wrong in some respects, which I will outline in a letter to escapist. But it's good to see some intelligent opinions on the whole Rap phenomenon in games...

Wanna talk about it here as well? It's always a little frustrating to wait for online criticism in the "letters to the editor" format.
For what it's worth, I'm not really interested in the "rap phenomenon," and I don't think the article necessarily concerns that part of the hip-hop/gaming intersection. I'm more interested in the marginalization of Black people as worthy of main character status. I also see aspects of concern regarding the digital divide, which would seem to be a real and continuing problem for Americans.
