For those that don’t know and don’t want to know, now is the time to stop reading. From here on out there are spoilers for one of the endings to Mortal Kombat 11, and there is no way to avoid that.
Here we go, the ending to the classic arcade mode will see Jax going back in time to end slavery early by stopping the slave trade and getting his wife and daughter back into his life. (these 2 events are not related, he just does them both) This has a small number of people that are being quite vocal screaming racism. The argument goes simply like this, Shao Kahn also has slaves for generations and by not freeing them when he has more slaves from dozens of worlds, races, and species Jax is racist because he only cares about black people.
That is it, that is the argument in a nutshell. This is the most ridiculous argument for racism I have possibly ever heard. Forget the fact that he would need to do something multiple gods have failed to do in defeating Shao Kahn, you are expecting one guy to cross worlds and time to stop something while ignoring his own ancestors and planet. It is also a video game, why are people thinking so much about it? Just enjoy the game and realize that the vast majority of black people in the world would do the exact same thing with that power, and rightfully so. It was a horrible time in world history that humanity should be ashamed off not arguing over a fictional character for ending it. It is, however, a very small minority of people upset about it as far as I can tell, and I doubt anyone upset about it even reads this. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
