Course there was no outrage over that.... You are mistaken. Redneckopoly hasn't come out (or at least I couldn't find anything close to it on E-bay) I think it was in the works though, and if it come out I'm sure you'll hear about it from Zell Miller. Well according to the games creator, a fair few more are indeed in the mix. http://monique.typepad.com/coffeenated/2003/10/black_leaders_o.html I've gotta be honest and say that the "You got you neighbourhood addicted to crack" card did raise a smile. The game looks so blatantly tongue in cheek that I really fail to see the problem. I mean, do you honestly think it's gonna be at the top of many KKK members' Christmas wish lists? Its taking the piss out a stereotype. I fail to see why this only becomes such a big deal when skin colour is involved. It sounds like Chang should possibly be posting a cheque off to the NAACP though. For the free publicity if nothing else. PS: I know I can't linkify. Sorry.

Let's face it, Ghettopoly is No Bigger Insult Than MTV Rap.

Let's face it, Ghettopoly is No Bigger Insult Than MTV Rap. Funny, I read the column as veiwing Ghettopoly as being just as big of an insult as MTV Raps.

So did I. But where's the outrage in that.
