Gaming is a medium that transcends race and religion, breaks down cultural walls and language barriers and brings people together from all over the world to enjoy it in unison. It doesn’t matter if you grew up poor, were bullied in school, suffered from a disease or dealt with bigotry and racism outside of your home. You could always escape that life through video games and find other like-minded people to share that experience with.
Now we live in a time where gaming is part of the mainstream and with a larger audience we have larger problems. Racism and bigotry run rampant online and our safe haven has been infested by parasites who consider themselves “gamers”. I’m hoping a time comes where we can take this medium back as a way to celebrate diversity, regardless of race, sex, religion, sexual orientation, height, size or any other reason to potentially “hate” someone. Hate does not belong in the gaming community. Unite or GTFO.
