    I can't believe people are saying this game is racist, People need to STFU. Killing white people isn't nearly as much fun as killing brown or black people, thats why the game is so much fun!

    I registered just to point this out: Students protest the killing of dogs in Call of Duty 4. Also note the inclusion of a tranq gun in the latest Tomb Raider - same reason.

    How many people can you kill in CoD4 again?

    I honestly don't see why in PG they can't remove the Easter Island statue and apologise for any confusion it caused. Problem solved y/y?

    I can't believe it! Those things in Pocket God hardly looks like real humans! And the "torture" isn't really the kind of "torture" KKK would use a propaganda

    Have you ever seen KKK screaming "Rise a volcano in the black peoples land! And let a massive sea creature eat them!"

    This is crazy. And why would the developers want to be racist? Do you really think they where sitting in a team meeting discussing how to add racism to the game?!

    **** racism... Both because it sucks as what is is, but almost (almost) as much because of how many places people see it where it isn't! Racism should be taken seriously where it is, and not being plastered all over everything

    I agree - there's absolutely no reference to race (quoting Wikipedia about pygmies doesn't count as an in-game reference to race IMO) and the game is completely removed from reality - dino eggs, porta-potty's, vampire bats - come on!

    Did someone say Torture? Well you certainly don't have to sacrifice them... you can have an island filled with fishing, porta-potty using CARTOONS that are happy, content and torture free. All the dangers and sacrifices are optional and can be turned off in most cases.

    Maybe if they just made their hair green it would shut everone up... I don't remember anyone being upset about Lemmings.

    What the hell? Who voted that it was racist? This app is a simple, fun, light-hearted app about playing around with islanders. The reason they are islanders is because chucking about normal people would be very boring. The game has a fun theme which simply makes the game more fun. In no way whatsoever does it depict racism, and anyone who thinks it does needs a trip back to the looney bin. I mean, political correctness has really screwed up this world. Now everything is so overly enforced with large doses of racial equality which do nothing other than make situations appear even more racist and generally annoy everyone. A UK cartoon for children called 'Postman Pat' was banned on the basis that the cat promoted racism because it is black and white. That is insane. If anything, the cat promotes Racial EQUALITY more than racism as the cat is both black and white. Also, I doubt that 3 year olds actaully understand racism. Sorry about that, it's just Political Correctness really really really gets me annoyed :mad::mad::mad:

    Is Pocket God Racist?

    No gawddammit! Sick of all the Politically Correct A-holes on this planet! Don't get me started. Too late...

    People choose to be offended.

    **** 'em if they can't take a joke!

    To all the P.C. morons out there: let's worry about something slightly more important like the swine flu, or world hunger, or why the Sharks blew the playoffs - AGAIN! Or terrorism, or fake boobs, or whether or not the mortgage will get paid. Just leave my video games out of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you.

    Sounds like you kids are starting to realize why some would find this degrading.

    It is more likely unintentional. I am not suggesting the game needs to be pulled either, but I hope the devs will at least keep an open dialogue with anyone who has been offended. Maybe we will end up with a game more like Gabo anyway. :p

    I did.

    Do you even realize you are minimizing Pacific Islanders? Are they not normal people?

    I would like to know your source of this information/misinformation because I can't find anything to support that statement.

    God |gäd| noun a superhuman being or spirit worshiped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity.

    Christians don't have a monopoly on the 'god' word.

    Please go and die in a hole. This game is not racist at all, so quit your whining. You are simply a victim of the PC brigade. My Mexican friend 'Pedro' is coming to your house to give you swine flu.

    Damnit, Pocket God IS racist. Do you know what else is? Chef Boyardee! Just because it's ravioli doesn't mean a fat Italian guy has to be plastered on the label.

    Who else, who else? The Land 'O' Lakes chick. It's racist AND sexist!

    Well, I have heard stories of skinny Italians. Could the legends be true?
