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.

I polled all my fellow Asians as to how offended they were at "Asian Witch"...

No one seemed to give a shit.

I’m white so I think I’m supposed to be offended on your behalf...;)

And oh boy, I am not enough degrees away from the guy, socially. I know people who know him well. What I find reprehensible about it is A) him shutting off comments and (even more so) B) the social hostage taking his kind employ.

I really hope these people evaporate sooner than later.

If anything good came out of this it's the guy in the video has pretty much advertised he should never be hired by any reputable rpg company. At the very least any that don't simply hire because the person spouts the proper woke SJW nonsense. Why would I ever hire the manchild for trying to ruin an rpg company because the poor baby did not get his way.

At 7:05 he says Pinnacle says "We have a black friend and they don't mind." Isn't that exactly like, you know, a sensitivity reader? Or is it only a sensitivity reader when it requires some kind of contrition and then a revision? The hypocrisy is mind blowing.

Well you know how it is with SJW's and their fucked outrage-detectors. Once they assume something is awry - there is *no* purity test that can ever be passed.

No amount of kneeling (or he might be offended if I don't bow with gong and kowtow?) will suffice. No apologies accepted or asked for. No assumption that they might be wrong, or there is miscommunication. And it always comes down to their self-entitled childish worldview that they're owed something...

Like for instance this tirade about how Pinnacle is screwed up because he doesn't like any of their deals they offer in terms of partnership. THEN DON'T TAKE IT.

Like he's owed some kind of career using someone elses IP or work.

And the whole "autism" outrage? Using his own daughter as an excuse to see their statement in the worst possible light imaginable, which is standard insanity for SJW morons, should only underscore his own position that he's ignoring the spectrum that "autism" covers in terms of behaviorial interaction. Fuck man there are non-autistic people that I think shouldn't be playing RPG's, much less autistic people that can't quite get the interpersonal stuff down and without the right group can get unintentionally awkward. But no - he couldn't possibly give Pinnacle a mote of credit on that.

What a fucking toolbag.

I took some minutes of the rant, so people don't have to watch it all:

This video has been in the works for last 6 months
"ok boomer racism"
Asian and Mexican Witches are called Asian and Mexican Because brown skin color
SW Community Savage World Hangout are nothing but trolls
deadlands lists black people as "the blacks"
spotlight on product from Atomic Ninja Studios
     Same group as SW Community Web Site GIve them money? NONONONONONO!
Pinnacle: Autistic kids are stupid because they can't play the game? Me: wut?
Still loves SW ruleset
Turned off comments because of expected backlash
DO NOT take my words as broadstrokes and use them against me
Surface level stuff - now bad licensing on digital distribution - all about them - authoritarians
still doing SW videos now and then - but won't support them
"I'm the holdout on all this."
Has autistic daughter
Tastes have shifted SW is now my #3 system.
Pinnacle always gets their cut - cannot be comfortable - find ways to do videos on their products
     without paying them, somehow...
This has been my business for YEARS.
Bye.

His OSR Playlist: (Aka: Only Basic Fantasy stuff)

My take is: This is a guy whose partnership ended PROBABLY due to him not wanting to push certain product on his channel, and his complaints about lack of sensitivity on "autistic people" were probably along the lines of Pinnacle saying "Commenters make you butthurt? So what."  This coupled with him S T R E T C H I N G for a reason (RACISM) to get Pinnacle canceled REEKS of a guy who is attempting to use SJWs as his personal army. IMHO he will be the one to be canceled. Eventually.
