There has been a storm brewing on Twitter over Tiny Tina, and whether or not her “Lingo” is making fun of colored people and should be considered racist. Now lets stop right here, first of all are you f%$*ing serious? This is what we spend our time debating and worrying about ?… the writer for Borderlands 2 is under fire for this… really?
I have personally beat Borderlands 2, and it just so happens that Tiny Tina was one of my favorite characters from the game. I found her dialogue funny and amusing, now people are arguing that she is making fun of Ebonics and also colored people. Stop right there, why does one correlate Ebonics with African Americans to begin with? stop classifying yourself and there will be no racism.
If you say Ebonics is relate to you because you are Black, then you are the one being racist, you are the one who is classifying yourself. Because she is a White character she can not use “Ebonics”? how the hell is this fair? As a matter of fact if she was a Black character then your argument would have something to back it up, you could say the makers where classifying Black people as uneducated by making her speak in Ebonics. But after all she is white, so no one should be bitching what so ever. She doesn’t make fun of White or Black people, she is a harmless character meant to make you laugh. Stop bitching and ruining everything good, stop wasting your time on senseless arguments and go do something constructive. No matter what race you are, end this since-less racist bullshit.
At the end of the day we are all humans in this fight together. We must coincide with each other, so get over the petty nonsense.
