GamingThread So square can make drastic changes to FF7 in the remake but couldn't be bothered to not make Barrett an ignorant racist caricature? (Read Threadmarks)
Reason User banned (2 weeks): Dismissing concerns around racism
I think you're looking at it as he's racist because he's black and he's angry rather than he's an angry and happens to be black. Ironically he's only angry when mentioning Shinra but guarded when he first meets Cloud. Would you have felt the same if he were of a different race but kept his voice and personality the same or would you say he's "acting black"? He doesn't seem racist to me and you see that with his personality and character development and we haven't even seen his backstory yet.
