    I feel that it needs to be mentioned that the Adam Sandler movie was a satire. The Natives were mistreated not because they just thought it was funny to degrade Native American women but rather because the people who created classic westerns thought it was funny. The joke wasn't intended to simply laugh at the natives, but to laugh at how the dumb white people treat them in the dumb movie. I seem to remember a native american in an older western being repeatedly kicked from somebody's front porch by the same guy. Nobody got their panties in a twist about that, and that wasn't meant as satire.

    Rags, with your discussion with cultural perspectives on Native Americans, that reminds me of F-Zero GP Legend where a Native American character pilots a F-Zero machine called the "Wind Walker." Basically in Japan it was called "Crazy Horse," and America changed it to the "Wind Walker" because they thought it was racially insensitive (Really?) Personally I feel like the Crazy Horse name is better than the Wind Walker.

    Ok , i liked your video but i disagree with you on AC3. Connor feels more like someone you could trust and also a more relateable .(Ezio always seemed to me obnoxcious and just to much of a disney prince . Plus the game got on my good side for being kind of like an east german western (they would have storys about how some asshole cowboys fucked over some indians and then the indians would get their revenge(best example is "Apachen" from 1973(skip through it if you have the time)))

    The Arabic sign literally says "Iraqi Border 70km", the sign to the left of it, I can't tell. It definitely isn't Arabic, that first letter is completely unknown to me, but it could be Urdu or Farsi, really depends on where 70km from the border it is. I'd be willing to bet it's correct.

    Cultural Appropriation is an ultra-racist term meant to divide people into "us" and "the disgusting others."

    For one, culture is innately shareable. There isn't a single culture today which has not borrowed from another culture. Therefore, if something is innately shared, it cannot be stolen. Culture isn't an item... if one person starts to eat feta cheese, they are not stopping me, a Greek person, from also eating feta cheese.

    Of course a Japanese game developer isn't going to get absolutely everything about one of the European cultures right in a game, and of course a Polish game developers isn't going to nail every single detail about Native American culture. So fucking what?

    The alternative is that European and Native American cultures just aren't represented in games at all. If people are going to whine about every little detail the game developers are just going to stop even trying to include your people. It's not going to worth the effort for them since they're never going to get everything right so people will keep bitching.

    And what is with the whiners always just assuming that "appropriation" (Which it isn't in the first place. It's just sharing. Appropriation involves actually taking something away from people. White guy wearing a headdress doesn't prevent a Native American from also going it so it isn't appropriation.) is done for "evil" reasons. When kids dress up as a Native American it's not to mock the Native Americans ffs. It's because they find them cool. It's appreciation and them wanting to be cool like the Native Americans. It's the exact same as with vikings, knights, superheroes etc. People find them cool so they want to be one themselves. It's in no way mocking anyone.

    "cultures you don't belong to." Saying to someone they don't belong to that culture based on a persons heritage or skin color comes off as very xenophobic and nationalistic. Traditions are stupid and the idea of culture ownership needs to die. 17:57 Are you fucking kidding me, unless they are portraying gay people as deviant child molesters I don't want to hear any complaints about stereotypes outside of an artistic examination not a fucking agenda. Gotta love how people like us can figure this shit out and call out people way above our prestige and pay grade of how stupid they are.23:19 you know it's fun to point this out in reviews and commentary but beyond that who gives a fuck. 25:25 complains about native american stereotypes and yet we have natives
    still practicing their shaman beliefs in town hall meetings and shit. Of course no one no fucking one of consequence thinks all natives etc. are alike. The only racists we have are part of trumps administration example the attorney general was a KKK member, there is your real racist but no, lets focus on entertainment and media, much more important then the ones that run the country most of us live in. 50:00 and there we have the inevitable double standard.
    Also the ad before this video was about not letting your dogs have "british teeth" what If I had a commercial about not letting your dogs have "african hair" or some shit.

    For a native English speaker who probably hasn't heard all too much German in his life, your pronounciation was alright by the way. The way the languages feel while being spoken are incredibly interestingly different, that's why Germans frequently butcher the English language as well. :)

    @22:20 Don't know if it was said or not, but OpFor is actually a military term for training simulations where one platoon still trains as if they're US Soldiers and the other would train as an insurgent, to help you get into the mindset of a terrorist's wait then run and gun tactics. (Usually just by turning their uniforms inside out and you shoot each other with chalk rounds). Depending on if you're just training at, say, Fort Sill and you're training in a bunch of shipping containers to be a tiny village or it's built up like the NTC (National Training Center). There you will get 1:1 models of locations you would see while deployed. All OpFor literally means is Opposing Force.
    With this context in mind, the multiplayer isn't even about America vs Middle Easterners. It's still a training simulation of Americans training against other Americans. Just like what's actually going down with the people holding the controllers. The Multiplayer has no story line. And shy of the Arabic that the OpFor speak (most interpreters for the US Military use Arabic because it's more widely spoken instead of having a specific interpreter for each and every tribal dialect) and the "uniforms" (which is pretty sloppily thrown on, just like anyone with a vague understanding would)- there is nothing that even ties them to being not apart of a training simulation.
    Source: I just wrote a specific three letter combination that just sent a wave of dread among all the other veterans and service members reading.

    Giving Dark Souls to a 12 year old is actually not a good thing. It makes them learn what failing tastes like, what being in an unforgiving world is, what "meritocracy" means and it makes them learn to get back up each time they're thrown down, rather than run away and hide in one of those "safespace" hoping for the world to change just for them to feel "secure".
    Giving Dark Souls to a 12 is in fact the best way to prevent him/her from being a SJW !
