@Jayvir If i were a major game developer, I might feel a bit like Sakurai. I have lots of ideas, but I want to make it exactly the way I see it, not have my ideas tainted by other people. No doubt a flawed way of thinking, but I can imaginr that is hiw Sakurai thinks

Allow me to clean up here (hopefully):

Perhaps this is potentially racist. It's a question of whether this particular depiction of a stereotypical African is derogatory compared to the other stereotypes In Qix. Ultimately if you're not a black African you shouldn't act the boss of whether or not this is racist. Let African people be the judge of that.

As somebody else said, this could just be racialism. Indeed, some African people hunt with spears and live in tribes in sone areas. And we should just accept that that happens. What I would be iffy about is making Mario black. There's no need for that. You don't go to Africa and just become black.

And yes, I do think NL is just using this for clickbait. It is a small part of a video. And I would not be offended at the Nintendo of today. This game is very old.

@Einherjar Where I'm from Germans are stereotyped as Nazis and people without a sense of humour or even an interpretation of what a joke is. Of course this is not realistic, but are you offended?
