New PBS Game/Show asks if games have a race problem. (Hint: they do!)

We hate to admit it, but game characters are white. Like really, really white. Like 85% of all game characters.

Crazy, right? So I started digging into it and there are some technical challenges to race that no one talks about. These aren’t excuses, but they are realities to overcome. As JFK said, problems like these are meaningful, “not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, [and] one we are unwilling to postpone.”

Did I just compare racial equality in games to the landing on the moon? Yes, yes I did.
