        Sexual deviant that forces it on others publicly.
        The entire identity of "Queerness" only exists as far as being able to force it on others. IF you don't expose others to it, it can not be queer.
        There's no queer "Self", there is only the relationship between the "Queer" and the public, and the public must not only recognize it but have a reaction to it, if they don't have a reaction, it's not "Queer".

        It's a synonym for "strange", that's the original meaning. You see it a lot in old literature.

    Barret is comic relief? Sure he can joke and is ignorant about certain things, but his scenes after the reactor fell or after his best friend killed himself cemented him as a great character in my book.

    There really isnt a right answer for this, people will always complain «oh hes too serious», «oh he’s too unserious», «oh hes too loud», «too quiet». Since it will be put under a microscope when skin color is involved its no wonder some just dont bother or do their own thing.

    Did they not play Rebirth? Barret gets a ton of respect, especially with the Dyne arc and the Myrna flashback. He's also the level headed father figure. Sure he has some silly scenes (like with the baby bird), but every character has that kind of stuff.

    Remake and Rebirth made him one of my favorite characters when he was just a stereotypical angry black man in the original.

Like, you know damn well that the minute they do a quiet, sagely mentor-like black character, every '' journalist '' is going to start whining how the character is a stereotypical '' magical homie '' who says all the right things, the right magical words, for the whities to proceed forward with their own stories.

    You're right. 60% of all blacks in videogames should be violent, murderous savages with zero self awareness. I agree, we need accurate representation of male blacks with the statistical weight to back it up.

    So did they miss the 2 hour long quest step which shows you Barrett's fricked up past?
    Are they mad that Yuffie and Cait Sith are also comic relief?

      No anon, they didn't play the game.

    Al-Cid was cool though. I mean he's not full nignog and more of a Med if I remember correctly right? Still a victory for the browns I guess. These "people" probably won't be satisfied until they get some full bixnood Black person anyway.
