GamingThread MikeZ, lead designer of Skullgirls, makes an "I can't breathe" joke on stream
Reason User Banned (2 months): dismissing concerns surrounding racism, prior ban for inflammatory generalizations surrounding race
Everybody here saying they know what's best for the black members of the Skullgirls community and the black members of the FGC whilst ignoring what they're saying need to take a step back. It's the classic era "We need to listen to black people... Oh, no, not those black people" The black members of the communities Mike's involved in are the most important people to listen to here. Which isn't to say he shouldn't catch an Evo ban after they talk to the community. But suggesting something like cutting Skullgirls from Evo in the name of black rights, when a large amount of the top players are black, is just punishing black people for something a Jewish guy said 8 years after his game was released. Do something like ban Mike and make a donation to BLM charities and you get a positive outcome from this.
