Thank you! This is exactly right. People of color shouldn’t have to do this extra post-work; that puts an extra burden on us for simply wanting to be represented.
I’m mixed as well revmykl777, I feel for your daughter.
I remember how much I loved being able to play a black girl in Pokemon X&Y for the very first time. When they took away that customization in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire I was so upset that I couldn’t play the game. Luckily the makers of Pokemon learned their lesson and have included skin tone customization in every game after Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
And Kelemelan, it doesn’t matter where in the world we are specifically located. People of color are everywhere. Including diverse skin tones will only increase business. Why should I pay for a product that doesn’t market to me?
