This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

I saw I believe 3-4 episodes.

When the "heroes" are starting to act like villains my interest faded.

  Given some of the statements by the Shows creators/directors they told me up front it was not made for me.  I listened to them and did not bother watching.  Seems they might want to start making some more inclusive stories.

It used to be 'the only color that matters is green'. Now it's 'we don't want your filthy lucre, bigot!'.

   The LOL part though, is then people who do not watch are just racists who will not support a BIPOC who is creating in Media.

Well, yeah. It's the 'heads they win, tails you lose' style of argumentation. I saw something like this on RPGnet, where one guy got banned for 'cultural appropriation' and another guy got banned for pointing out the pitfalls of trying to integrate minority sources.

If you add minority stuff, it's appropriation or tokenism. If you don't, it's marginalization.

The only way to win is not to play.
