I'm always looking on social media and I happened to look on my Facebook. As I'm scrolling, I come across this video game that has something to do with the slave trade. Now, not too long ago I saw another post about this game but it wasn't Tetris it was an informative game but it took you through the experience of the slave trade while being a slave.
Reading about the what the game was about made me question why it was made in the first place? I mean yes children should know about this information but think about the other cultures. Just because they're playing the game doesn't at they're actually experiencing it and understand what slaves went through all the way around through their lives. Even a majority of African Americans don't know what it physically felt like because we weren't there. Then again, it affects us the most because they're our people and these slaves were some how related to us in some way. We don't want to watch our brothers and sisters get hurt by another culture.
Being the person who I am, if I wasn't African American, I would still feel some type of way about this game being made but it doesn't come off educational. This games seems as though it is a mockery of what happened to African Americans which was NEVER okay. Physically hurting someone and manipulating them is totally wrong.
This game is wrong, disgusting and out of line.
