there are too many east asian skins

Postby upaasaka » Thu Jul 30, 2020 9:48 am

this is nothing against east asian people. i love all of asia. the issue is underrepresentation of others.it's disproportionate. for example there are no obviously indian skins. i really want an indian skin.


all these skins have explicitly east asian qualities:
crystal samurai
crystal kunoichi
crystal fighter
hex master


the rest of the skins are racially ambiguous except the 2 black skins & yuan itor (obviously hispanic, arguably a racist stereotype)

i think the community could be made a lot more inclusive & welcoming if we added some diversity to the skin options

Yuan Itor is actually a reference to the TV series Scrubs. It is spelled to try to be more obvious how it should be pronounced, though it might have missed the mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fdc765l9psM

East Asian? As in, anime? That's really popular nowadays. Sure it's disproportionate in terms of race, but it's totally proportionate in terms of culture.

I don't think there were any Medusas, Necromancers, Pirates, literal embodiments of Pestilence, Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, Crusaders, Spies, Retributionists, or Angels in Salem either. I fail to see the point here.

Unequal racial representation in Town of Salem avatars. Incredible.

If there were an Indian avatar, what role would it be for? I can’t think of a role to have that kind of aesthetic.
I guess it could be a stand alone skin, but it kind of just seems random.

Why the implication that people need to "fit in"? Is there something wrong with somebody being of a non-standard race?

I wouldn't be against skins of new ethnicities but I don't think a singular themed update that introduced several characters who share resemblance to people from one specific part of the real world is by any means a problem, and I suspect you know that too :)

Assuming your list is complete

There was one

Then they added the Crystal Warriors pack

That's, like, obviously not a problem - it was one character, then they added a theme pack with a few more. It's not like they keep adding more and more, so I don't see whatever issue you seem to be having here :P

I'm referring to your comment regarding the PokeGo pack. You asked why there weren't any other themed packs, and I showed you one.

At this point I'm beginning to think that you're a troll...
