The problem is the only "human" looking characters represented by Nintendo are all White people. No other race/ethnicity is being represented. Mario, Luigi, Princess, Link, Zelda, Samus, etc they're all White.


Yeah but what if Mario was black? Then all of a sudden Nintendo wouldn't be racist. But if I complain about my race not being in, then I wouldn't have a point for some reason since Nintendo included this black character which makes everything better. Are we going to argue then that Nintendo hates Filipinos, Native Americans, Indians etc because there is no character representing those races? I doubt it. Blacks do not represent every minority and I want every single race that this world has in MK8 if there was a black character because then it would make sense.


No one is arguing that the answer to racism is "make Mario black." It's a positive step forward to better representation.

It's not that anyone's wanting a single black character in the game. It's more that there's not a single non-white character in it. You don't have to represent everyone, but after about three decades of making video games, they don't even have one such character to put in the game.

They also have not broken the 10 character mark in said 3 decades and had just recently added ONE new human character, Rosalina

Would it be that hard to add Il Piantissimo to Kart? You know, this guy:

I think Running Man is just really tan in that game. He's otherwise white in his own games.
If people want the Wii U Cheaper, and the cost of the White model is already the price of the 3DS XL, are they saying they want it the same price as a 3DS?

If he's just tan, I can't think of anyone else which just makes it worse.

Hell he was more important to the plot of Other M then the main character. Samus coulda ben easily removed, but without Anthony they all woulda died. So lets face it Nintendo thinks more of black men then they think of white women ;)

Is Vyers black or just your typical SJW with white guilt?

And how does his existence relate to Mario Kart's roster?
