Cuphead is a 2D platformer with run-and-gun gameplay reminiscent of classic games like Mega Man. What sets Cuphead apart from its predecessors is its unique aesthetic which pays stunning homage to early 20th century American animation. The artists at Studio MDHR, the Canadian company which developed the game, have done an impressive job recreating the dynamic rubber-hose character animation that producers like the Fleischers and Walt Disney made famous in the 1930s. By setting their game in this aesthetic, however, Studio MDHR also dredge up the bigotry and prejudice which had a strong influence on early animation.

Apart from Walt Disney and a few other notable examples, weren't a shitload of early animation guys Jews?
Quote from: George Lincoln Rockwell
The Conservatives have a slogan which I think is despicable and defeatist: "It's better to be dead than red." And the Commies and Liberals have a slogan which is even worse, it's treason, they say: "It's better to be red than dead." We say this: "You don't have to be Red and you don't have to be Dead. Not dead. Not Red. Dead Reds"

"Unwinnable" is an apt description for the challenge to make a thing in 2017 that somebody won't call racist.

The best part:

Quote from: Unwinnable's Yussef Cole
When asked in a Rolling Stone interview about the unfortunate associations of Cuphead‘s 1930s aesthetic, lead inking artist for the game, Maja Moldenhauer replies: “It’s just visuals and that’s about it. Anything else happening in that era we’re not versed in it.”

But these visuals are weighed down by the history that brought them into being, despite the developers best efforts at stripping them of the more overt caricatures that are rife in cartoons for most of the first half of the 20th century. By sanitizing its source material and presenting only the ostensibly inoffensive bits, Studio MDHR ignores the context and history of the aesthetic it so faithfully replicates.

Playing as a black person, ever aware of the way we have historically been, and continue to be, depicted in all kinds of media, I don’t quite have that luxury.

            :say:

:mudd:

Quote from: Raping Stone's ( ( (Jacob Kleinman) ) )
When it comes to reviving the 1930s animation style, some things are better left in the past. Racist stereotypes are almost unavoidable in classic American animation – Disney included – with every ethnicity from African-Americans to Asians depicted in the laziest and most offensive way possible at one point or another. Thankfully, that's not something you'll find in Cuphead, where the animators were careful to avoid making any sort of cultural or political commentary with their game.

"It's visuals and that's about it,” Moldenhauer replied when I asked what the game might be saying about America in the 1930s. "Anything else happening in that era we’re not versed in it. Blame it on being Canadian."

But plenty of other artists have used the same style to tackle issues of race and sexuality head-on. Jay-Z's music video for "The Story of O.J." drops the rapper into a 1930s-style cartoon, complete with the kind of racist black caricatures you might find in a old Fleischer or Disney short. It also draws on other, more surreal elements of the style; one characters teeth transform into piano keys to match the music, and the New York skyline gyrates like a rotoscope cartoon.

Lorelei Pepi, an American animation artist who focuses on issues of issues of identity and representation, used the same tactics in "Happy and Gay," a short feature that imagines a 1930s-style cartoon world where queer couples were included in popular culture without being reduced to stereotypes. The short features a variety of stereotypes that were common at the time, including the Asian opium smoker and the effeminate "pansy."

"It imagines a night on the town for gay and lesbian couples 1930s cartoon style," says Lynn Tomlinson, an independent animator and professor at Towson University. "Of course, this nightlife did exist, but it wasn't represented on screen because censorship and stereotypes effectively erased any positive representation of gay characters."

            :say:

:smalljewrub:

"Your work has and old-timey style, and as you know everything older than 2008 is racist as hell. Are you a closet racist, you white Canuck shithead?"

"Lol no, what the fuck kind of question is that."

"OH WELL YOU MAY NOT BE A RACIST BUT OTHER PEOPLE ARE. LET'S TALK ABOUT RACISM AND FAGGOTRY FOR SEVERAL PARAGRAPHS NOW."

Tesla Hit by Lawsuit, Called ‘Hotbed for Racist Behavior’

The electric carmaker, which bills itself as a progressive force for change in the auto industry, has been hit by several previous lawsuits, including one alleging sexual harassment and gender discrimination on the factory floor. The latest, brought as a class-action, claims African-American workers were targeted by racial slurs and that Tesla did not act in response to their complaints.

The latest lawsuit, filed by former Tesla worker Marcus Vaughn, said he was frequently greeted with the “n-word” both by coworkers as well as Tesla supervisors. Vaughn claims the company failed to follow up on his complaints and then fired him in October for “not having a positive attitude.”

Somehow I trouble believing any of this is true.
But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. It’s just that the science fiction is usually titled ‘technical proposal’ and the fantasy is titled ‘budget proposal.’

Do these people actually even believe their own stories?

Are we to believe that in this day and age, employers would say "Hi nigger" to a black employee? Come now.  :facepalm:

More pressingly, the DJ and Live Act lists were overwhelmingly dominated by men, mostly from the US and Europe. They didn't represent the reality of electronic music in 2016, a scene in which countless incredibly talented women play to packed clubs each weekend. To continue running these features would be to diminish the vital contribution they make to electronic music.

It's also important to remember that dance music is an art form born in queer communities, shaped by people of colour and populated by artists of all genders. But, simply put, this isn't something you'd know by looking at the recent results of our polls. At best, the lists misrepresented the reality of the scene; at worst, they helped to reinforce some of its harmful power dynamics, which still favour white men above everyone else. This is reason enough to make a change.

If you can't get enough strong wymyn, homos and noble POCs on the list... THEN SHUT IT DOWN!

It gives people a chance to virtue signal by believing an implausible story, that's all that matters.

This is why among other reasons it's insane to work for a company made up of libfags, you're *more* likely to be sued for discrimination because it attracts both people who will file false charges and others who will cheerlead them.
