| When writer Alex Simmons, from iGN, writes about where Trevor is from, he calls all the people who live there "scumbag inhabitants". Was that just a racist generalisation of people from rural places or am I missing something? The nerd won't get back to me or comment on what he meant. Can't racism get you fired? What if he said that all the people where Franklin is from are "scumbag inhabitants"? I bet that would've raised some eyebrows. |
You do realise that it was probably R* themselves who told him that Blaine County inhabitants are "scumbags", right? Afterall, GTA is a parody of real life, so that demographic of people are most likely based on real inhabitants of that area - hillbilly's and such, in other words scumbags. That's what GTA does.
The place is full of methheads and psycopaths like Trevor, how else are you supposed to describe it? R* never intended for those inhabitants to seem like nice people.
Hillbillies are scumbags?
I always defended IGN! WTF are you talking about?
If we're going to generalise and go by stereotypes, then yes. GTA is all about portraying sterotypes of American culture, so hillbillies have always been presented in that way, especially in San Andreas.
I personally don't know any, so I can't say, but generally they are portrayed as scumbags, and IGN were simply stating that.
Don't get offended, this is what R* do best.
Yeah, people who work hard(coal miners), who make more money than you or alice simmons, who are honest, who don't need nothing from nobody, who hunt, grow their own food, & grow their own smoke, make their own alcohol,----yeah, they're scum bags.
Sounds like typical jewish racist bullsh*t to me. You might wanna educate yourself about mountaineers; You cannot be a 'hillbilly' unless you are from the appalachias. Last time I checked, the appalachias do not run through Cali. The only people who generalise hillbillies as "scumbags" are the ignorant, and the parasites and their family & little friends who are stealing our natural resources. They spread those lies to dehumanise the people so that they can steal, lie, and murder.
What if I "generalised", and called your mommy, daddy, kids, grandmother, fuc*ing scumbags, just because all of you are jewish? Then what am I? Alice Simmons needs to go educate himself because he is an epic, racist, ugly, homosexual. I'm done with this discussion because I'm begining to get pissed. Don't press your racist luck with me or I'll report your a$$ for racism, and you will be banned.
G.I. obviously didn't get a good look at V, it was very controlled, so that's why out of an 18 page spread, it's just not very well written with blurry details. Some things G.I. should've asked, they didn't. Just another good reason not to renew membership.
