C. Robert Cargill is pretty cool and digging up a tweet from 2011 is just about the lamest thing I've ever heard of.

Snyder fans are next-level pathetic. :lol

Come on, dude.

?

Dude is going to survive some people at twitter pointing that out. In that regard, I don’t see what is pathetic about it, given is not exactly cancel worthy.


I said Snyder fans are pathetic. Which they are, including the one trying to "gotcha" him in that screenshot. :lol

toku's the lone exception of course.

I don't even get the connection between the two images. There's a water hose and a bunch of characters dodge it?

Quote
Quote
I'm confused because to me this just looks like Mario using his Fludd attack and I really don't see any similarities between the image you posted and the pic Sakurai did beyond that
It's the fact that he's using the attack on Rodin, the only Black character who can participate in-game (albeit as an Assist Trophy).

"More representation!"

"OMG SOMEONE IS SHOOTING WATER AT A BLACK CHARACTER DON'T YOU KNOW THAT'S RACIST???"

Quote
The picture alone would feel like a stretch of an argument, but Sakurai's past makes this blatant.

That they can take such an innocent image and reinterpret it as a racist attack on black people that reference a historical event decades ago that nearly no one living in Japan--a country on the other side of the globe--could possibly know about is both scary and...impressive?

Sakurai probably has a garbage bin labeled "Crazy Nintentards" next to his feet at the desk where he works.   That's where Era's angry letters are going, along with all the other crazy shit he probably gets.

I really don't think it's a specific reference to that event, but it's pretty tiresome that Sakurai keeps making mistakes that come off as insensitive, intentional or not. Someone at Nintendo needs to really let him know about this and those certain problematic Spirit battles if they haven't already.

NoA will get on that as soon as they’re back from Christmas break.

Yes, but he still has a global audience & accounts for this with English text in his bio.

Always love these "but it's global" arguments because global usually just means USA for them. Being global isn't a one way street. It means it will have things that aren't specifically adjusted to the US population

Their attitude is that anyone who sells anything in America must have encyclopedic knowledge of US history from the outset, especially history of a sensitive nature, or they are secret racists. Not even domestic US companies get treated so strictly. But if a 50+ year old Japanese man who never lived or worked in the US for all his life posts a picture that schizos on a race bend could twist themselves into interpreting it as racist then it must mean the guy has hostile intent against black people.

It is outright crazy, it damages the movement in calling out real racism, and it makes ResetERA community look crazy and unreasonable to any outside observer.

are you kidding me ARE YOU ACTUALLY KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW

the developers of Horizon Forbidden West are using THIS imagery to promote their game??

the poses, the framing, everything about this mirrors that famous photo from my home country of Sudan

that photo from one of the worst massacres in our history, when Cornelius Withers knelt on top of Abed Nkimbo, a photo taken moments before slaying him, his last victim on that bloody day

everyone is familiar with this, right?  I'm not going crazy here?

honestly I was ready to chalk this up to a simple mistake and I would've accepted a recognition of the error and an apology, but after all the Sudanphobia in the first game this really constitutes a pattern by now

this is intentional, and it's unacceptable

Whats more likely: sakurai referencing this event for shits and giggles because hes a massive racist or literally any other context
Who cares? It’s still an imagine of a black man getting hosed by a white character.

Ignorance isn’t an excuse for racism, be good if folk weren’t so desperate to jump to that as some sort of defence in this thread. Or is simply cause Sakuria is a developer of a popular game? 🤔🤔🤔

agree with this completely, I'm so glad there isn't a black playable character in Smash because can you imagine?

everybody picking Mario vs. Doc Brown, just so they can constantly hose him down?

disingenuously downplaying and gaslighting, "oh haha I just like playing as Mario, I didn't know I was referencing genocide, me so innocent"  :-[

ffffuck that forever

if they ever add black people to Smash, block Mario from being able to participate in the same battles (or Link because he can bomb them, and also Donkey Kong and Diddy for obvious reasons)

“I wish filmmakers don’t shit on other filmmakers or that the media and fans didn’t encourage it”

“You used to have another opinion about years ago”.

What is pathetic  about that? Is indeed trying to get a gotcha about it but the guy is not exactly wrong (and neither the director in finding of poor taste shitting on others at public). I don’t like Snyder either but that mentality of “shitty fans” is the stuff this guy Cargil is currently against.

It's not even about having the perspective of African Americans or being knowledgeable about the Birmingham Campaign.   It's a picture that has nothing to do, whatsoever, with the Birmingham Campaign...and it isn't even remotely possible that the Smash Bros devs made it in allusion to those water cannons that devastated blacks during their fight for civil rights.   This is fucking insanity.

True it's more likely that Peach went for that BBC and Mario cockblocked him like the soyboy he is.  :shaq2

ERA is just insane rn.

Just cause a Japanese dude is going to know the sensitive aspects of American culture--A history America intentional hides in popular media--which is probably what only native Japanese people know of.

The OP is rather Cindi-esque mental or intentionally trolling.

Isn't he a Nation of Islam nutjob?

Ree routinely celebrates the deaths of unvaccinated people. Somehow they don’t see that they’re fuelling the culture of divide that leads to innocent people being attacked

I like how the lock message pretends like there’s a possibility of the thread being reopened.  When was the last time they locked a thread to “review a massive number of reports” and actually reopened the thread later?

The project EVE reveal thread after it was castrated.

"Should we decide to reopen this thread or give any other updates this post will be edited with the additional information. Thank you for your patience" is their new (last few months) boilerplate response when they know in their heart of hearts a thread is utterly ridiculous but for the sake of appearances they can't say so openly

I still can't believe a thread about a Smash brothers image on Twitter no less gets taken seriously.

Well that depends on what kind of response it is. If I don't think it's reasonable to be this american-centric then I will have to point that out. Just a reminder that black people do exist outside of the US too who will likely have never heard about this kind of association.   

NO EVERY SINGLE BLACK PERSON IN THE WORLD HAS THE SAME WORLDVIEW AS THE AFRICANAMERICANS. IF THEY NOT THEY ARE RACE TRAITORS.


It's not even about having the perspective of African Americans or being knowledgeable about the Birmingham Campaign.   It's a picture that has nothing to do, whatsoever, with the Birmingham Campaign...and it isn't even remotely possible that the Smash Bros devs made it in allusion to those water cannons that devastated blacks during their fight for civil rights.   This is fucking insanity.

They really lost the plot. How can anyone look at that OP and not think this is trolling. This has nothing to do with fighting racism, it's just seeing what you want to see.

ERA is just so easy to "whip up" by trolls.

Mostly because the trolls are between the protected users and are indistinguishable from them.

Thing is, even if you really believe that the OP is a troll, you either shut up for fear of getting banned or you gaslight yourself into believing the troll job to keep up appearances. Because the last thing you want on ERA is to be accused of being "insensitive" or being accused of being a secret alt-right Nazi that infiltrated the community from within. Look at all the people in that thread falling over themselves saying how much they believe the OP and that they "always knew" Sakurai was a racist. I don't believe for a second even half of those that say they support the OP's interpretation of that screenshot believe it themselves.

Talk to these same people on the various ERA Discord off-shoots, and I bet you the attitude towards that OP and thread will be completely different. They are probably laughing about that thread and the OP and the people going along with it right now.

In all honesty, Sakurai probably knows even LESS than the average Japanese person about race relations globally.  The guy plays video games and works on Smash, and that's been his schedule for over a decade.  He doesn't watch the news, he doesn't hang out with friends, he sees his wife every once in a while, he barely eats and sleeps.  Even that racist Kirby thing was probably him going "hey, I like this cool design from Dragon Ball/Dragon Quest, I'm going to put my own spin on it!"  Is there a possibility he's actually some secret racist?  Yeah I guess, but it would be pretty incredible in its own right considering the guy's schedule.

No need to bet.  It's literally happening right now in at least 5 discords.

the best thing is the dozens of posts referencing "all the stuff he did before" as if it is just known and dominates the public consciousness

are they referring to Dee Jay as Diddy, was Sakurai personally responsible for that? or did he tweet something insensitive during the George Floyd protests? fuck you, you should already know! we all do!
