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.

Blame Alanis Morissette. Thanks to her, for all intents and purposes, the definition of the word has become "weird and kind of a bummer" to the vast majority of people.
