    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.

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.

Not to resurrect this thread, but a columnist for the Tampa Tribune(a black man) nails it right on the head. 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.

Crazy isn't it? Some people beleive the strangest things. Kinda like how other people out there still say that G.W. Bush was "selected, not elected" as President back in 2000.
