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)

I’m black and I think Barrett was the most well-written, human character in the game. Sure, in Japanese media they tend to go for the ‘intimidating’ or ‘goofy’ roles for black people but that doesn’t mean they’re trying to be racist. I mean, the guys at square responsible for writing these characters are japanese people with almost no knowledge of black people/culture, so you kinda have to expect these types of things. Taking offense to it is incredibly soft and silly. If anything, OP comes across as a non colored person who has absolutely no clue what’s racist to minorities or what’s not.
