towards the end of the game, he starts killing Native Americans


but he should know about the historical treatment of the Natives, and yet he fights them

50th topic.



I don't believe he would be racist. The natives had been apart of Dutch's gang. However of course they joined from what seemed to be described by the whites poor treatment of them made the Natives join Dutch. Still however they were criminals in this case when John was killing them.


We also see from the mission "The Gates of El Presidio" that John calls out reyes and other mexicans for their poor treatement of the chinese workers in the country. 

John then proceeds to tell Reyes that no matter where a man is from, John will treat them right as long as they do the same in return.


John was a good man, and I don't think he was particularly racist.

He was a privileged, cis-gendered, heteronormative WHITE man, so yes, he was racist. #MeToo.

But yah, I don't recall him being racist at any point in the game. I do however recall one of the side characters calling the Chinese 'an inferior race'. Whether Marston was racist or not I don't really care.

No, in Undead Nightmare he's disgusted with Herbert Moon's bigotry and lets him get eaten by zombies because of it.

UD isn't canon but it still shows John's character.

He was killing natives because they were part of dutch's new gang, the natives were defending dutch and John kill them to get to and kill Dutch to get his family back.
