    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.

This is a tough one- but I think I agree with the policy. It is tough to say why- and I do admire his desire to go and fight for his country, but unless he is REALLY needed on the battlefield, it is best to leave him behind.
