GamingThread Discussing ethnically-accurate voice casting for people of color in gaming
Reason User banned (1 week): insensitive commentary surrounding representation over multiple posts in this thread
Someone having at all similar life experience to their character could let them bring something more to their portrayal—if you don’t consider any possible crossover of specific ethnic groups across the country lines of Iran and Pakistan, and how that above life experience similarity could still exist between an Iranian-American person & Pakistani-American character more so than, say, an Irish-American va, then what word needs to go in place of “accurate” in that post to make it at all acceptable to you? I’m not seeing the argument that having actors who have at least some background parallel is as bad as some background not remotely similar, so I want to know what wording would be at all more palatable so this discussion doesn’t happen again.
