Art Imitates Life: Skin Color in Video Game

A huge thumbs up to the upcoming video game South Park: Fractured But Whole for turning a joke into a literal video game. The easiest level has the lightest skin tone.  As you select harder levels, your character's skin tone gets darker.  :D

Yes, there are video games like this in T-America.  Black people tend to love the honesty.  A lot of white people whine that it's inaccurate.  But it's not.  You can get them with gender shifts, or class, or other things; and a few even have interstitial options.
