It’ll take time. I’ll add that it’s black game developers (including you and I) who will make it happen.
Hi LeSean. Fellow black nerd over here :).
I can relate to a lot of what you wrote. I think that I understand the facts of the situation. There are very few black characters in games because game developers are mostly white or Asian. Over time, more and more blacks will make games and there will be black game developers making decisions on characters and stories. That is when we as gamers will experience a different joy. The joy of interacting with characters that we can relate to and experiencing stories that resonate with us.
People like you and I will bring this experience to black gamers and non-black gamers. And the world will be better for it. :)
